General Discussion / Yoo Hoo........anyone Out There?
« on: August 18, 2008, 10:56:28 am »
I still have my Zauruses, but they don't get used any more (batteries are pretty knackered now). I moved to the Nokia internet tablets, which are pretty cool, just waiting for the next gen tablet to come out with an omap3430 or similar. I'm working on a variety of things, but mainly DSP programming (SBC encoder, Vorbis decoder, MP3 decoder).

Cheers all


General Discussion / Any Admins About?
« on: June 28, 2007, 05:53:46 am »
Da_Blitz informed me by PM of the "hack", but was not sure whether to delete the posts. I emailed Offroadgeek and I also thought that the "report a post" link goes to all Admins.

Therefore, where are the admins? I have some admin rights in certain fora, but not enough to look at the details of the posts in question.

Anyway I have locked the topic for the time being.


P.S. Bloody Firefox, will not let me type an apostrophe, nor use the cursor keys, nor copy & cut & paste. Need to restart it me thinks, grrrr

Angstrom & OpenZaurus / Ipkg Error
« on: April 24, 2007, 09:31:23 am »
Ah, I missed the GUI bit.

The 'easy' way to get around this is to use ipkg from the command line.

i reported this as a bug a long time ago in the OE bugtracker...

Yep, these issues (with the gpe and opie versions) have been ongoing for a long time. The problem is that no-one has yet decided to fix/write a new GUI package manager. If there's anyone out there who fancies the task, then I'm sure you'll get a lot of kudos.

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Roadmap For Pdaxrom?

You could always choose a different xserver, e.g. xorg rather than kdrive.

This is as easy as changing the xserver preferred_provider line in one of the .conf files and re-issuing the bitbake gpe-image command.

Though this sounds like it might be partly window manager related too. Again, you can change this by altering a conf file and letting it build the new requirements.

I also understand that there's acceleration for the PXA270 machines' graphics now which may improve the speed issues you were having.

On my c3100 - both installed OK but only got to a certain point in the boot sequence before stopping with an error I don't recall.

Did you add it to the bugtracker?


Angstrom & OpenZaurus / Angband On Oz/collie?
« on: February 22, 2007, 07:26:09 am »
There are a fair few steps to set it up, but if you follow the instructions it will just work. The biggest issue I imagine you'll have is filling out your local.conf with the correct paths, and the correct distribution, etc. (not very hard

Learning to write a .bb file is a bit of extra work, but there are lots of examples, and we'll will be happy to talk you through it.

Also it still seems not very clear to me or i miss something: can i simply set up BB on an ordinary linux box instead of Z?

Yes, on a normal desktop Linux machine.

It's a build tool that builds various things, including a cross-toolchain which it then uses to build the apps you want.

You should start on with the GettingStarted page.

This will build the cross toolchain (etc.) for you, then you just need to write the .bb file for the game.


Angstrom & OpenZaurus / Iptables Kernel Modules For
« on: January 31, 2007, 09:45:39 am »
You sure it's not compiled in?

Take a look in (iirc) /sys/modules/

The other option is that you could be talked through the process on irc...

Angstrom & OpenZaurus / Ipkg Tmp Packages Location
« on: January 28, 2007, 10:28:28 am »
It should download and extract them somewhere under /tmp, which is mounted as a tmpfs (in RAM).

Try rebooting, you may find that the jffs2 garbage collector just hasn't got round to reclaiming the (flash) space used by firefox before you uninstalled it.

Don't use halt, use suspend (or apm -s).

It'll switch on faster that way

Perhaps you have kernel issues, as this is what detects the keypress.

What are you running on the machine?

They all come from the same OE information (afaik) so I wouldn't expect any major changes.

Try an Angstrom build (or an openzaurus-unstable).
