Thanks Tombraider!

It is long, takes time (to enter a bunch of dictionaries) but it works!

I am having a lot of trouble with zBedic finding my dictionaries.  I have tried several of the suggestions from various newsgroups.  From Settings & selecting the Dictionaries tab I select "Search for new dictionaries" and the search comes up empty.  The manual suggests clicking on dictionary files in the FileManager - that does not work.  One suggestion was to individually add each dictionary (with complete path) to zbedic.conf in the Settings directory (it works for one dictionary but for 2 this crashes).  I have tried using the command line but that does not work.  I tried using the 0.9.5 version with oz-compat & that does not work.

I keep my dictionaries in /mnt/card/home/root/Documents/applications/zbedic & I have linked to this directory in practically every directory older versions of zBedic searched for directory files.

What am I doing wrong???

Angstrom & OpenZaurus / Wireless Problems
« on: March 23, 2005, 12:48:55 am »
I use an Ambicon WL-1100C.  I connect to DSL through my wireless router.       I seem to remember disabling all security on my router and then establishing a connection using wlan0.  I believe wifi0 does nothing from the users point of view.  For this I used checked the DHCP and "Automatically Bring Up"  boxes in TCP/IP.

Once you have your unsecure connection working turn on WEP (it seems that 3.5.2 is only able to use WEP 64-bit, I may be wrong).   I had to explicity state my IP address, subnet & gateway in the TCP/IP settings.  Once I restarted the network I had to eject the wireless card, pull it out and reinsert it and my connection worked with WEP.

The extraction & re-insertion of the card probably restarted the interfaces and there may be a nifty script out there that does the same thing, but until I search & find it, this is what I did.

Maybe there is a logical explanatio why all this works.  Check around the newsgroup.

Angstrom & OpenZaurus / Hentges Rom & Zsafe
« on: March 23, 2005, 12:02:14 am »
Well, after finally being able to delete to opie-zsafe (1.1.8) from the Hentges ROM and installing the older version opie-zsafe (1.1.7) I seem to have zsafe working.

I installed the latest Hentges ROM & zsafe will not work.  Pop-up says that zsafe cannot be found & I have not been able to uninstall and install the older opie-zsafe v1.1.7.

Any ideas as to what may be wrong?

Disable WEP on your wifi router.
Enable SSID broadcast on your router.

Once you have the Z working with the unprotected router then start enabling the security stuff on the router.

This worked for me Zaurus SL5500 and Ambicon CF wifi.


Angstrom & OpenZaurus / 3.5.2 - Problems, Fixes, Questions
« on: December 16, 2004, 03:22:32 pm »
Figured out the syncing issues:

1.  Need to link /home/root to /root (like Oz3.5.1)
2.  Use Opie instead of Intellisync in the sync dropdown in Security.

First, Coredump thank you for a great image.

Second, why does the usb-ethernet so flaky.  It seems a hit or miss when I connect via usb to my W2k system.  Also, if I am trying to sync with Intellisync in the security settings  I get ~50 pop-ups on my Z about allowing or denying unauthorized connections (I also have accept sync from any selected).  With Opie selected I don't get the annoying pop-ups but the sync does not seem to work consistently.

Any ideas, help, etc would be appreciated.



Angstrom & OpenZaurus / Random whine

Neocal works.  You need to use the oz-compat library.  To install oz-compat you need to have opie-sh installed also.  I also had opie-reader working using oz-compat libraries.

There sometimes seems to be a screw-up with displaying files using opie-reader and also justreader (also using oz-compat) but I usually can get things working again by playing with the setup (although I have not figured out exactly gets the file displayed correctly).

I have used a D-link card and my current Ambicon WL1100C-CF both worked.  You have to use wlan0.  

Do a search of the OpenZaurus forum.

Thank you MrSquishy!

The colored buttons are so much better than the bland blue.


Angstrom & OpenZaurus / OZ3.5.1 & s/w
« on: October 20, 2004, 05:33:49 pm »
OZ3.5.1  seems to work well for me as far as the PIM applications - much better than 3.2 (I couldn't stand 3.3.6pre1).  I have ZBEDic  & Hancomsheet working with the oz-compat libraries.

However, I am having difficulty getting some programs to work:
1. Justreader:  Are people using the new version in the unstable feed (2.0k) or the old version (2.0i) with oz-compat?
2. Opera works with oz-compat libraries, but I don't get the icons appearing in the icon bar.
3.  I have not been able to get Hancomword to install (using v1.4.4).

Any help would be appreciated.



Angstrom & OpenZaurus / Justreader on OPIE/OZ 3.5.1
« on: October 20, 2004, 02:09:59 pm »
I have tried installing the older version of Justreader & using the ozcompat libraries and the version included in the feed without much success.

Any useful hints?

All I seem to get is a really, really tiny graphic (or something) in the upper left corner.



Angstrom & OpenZaurus / Invalid magic
« on: May 27, 2004, 04:01:44 pm »
Using OZ3.2 after playing around with OZ3.3.6pre1 (just decided to wait for OpenEmbedded) and am now finding the following error when trying to reinstall programs that used to work before:

   Dealing with package xxx
   ipkg: Invalid magic
   ipkg: *** Couldn\'t kill old gunzip process*** aborting loading conf file /etc/ipkg.conf

I believe that \"Invalid magic\" is due to not having certain libraries loaded.  But I am trying to load packages that just need the already installed required libraries.

BTW, I may have given up on OZ3.3.6pre1 too early, but there needs to be a decent HOW-TO on migrating from OZ3.2 to the new ROM including how to use the Hancom Apps.
