the ' is going to throw it off, any characters that are used by the shell for various reasons are going to need to need a \ infront of..

Doh.  Forgot everthing goes through the shell in *nix... well i guess it does in windows also but its alot less obvious.  that will work except its not letting me type the \ in the ssid window.  Ehh no biggy.  It didn't work in the plain sharp rom either.

Thanks for the qtrdestop. Works great.  Although, I cannot tell you if it needs libraries since I have been trying to manually install some librarys to get some other progs to work (Zethereal and opie reader specifically... without success unfortunately)

opie reader will run but it has no icons or menu pics.  There is an issue with the libpng.

Code: [Select]
libpng warning: Application was compiled with png.h from libpng-1.0.9
libpng warning: Application  is  running with png.c from libpng-1.2.5
libpng error: Incompatible libpng version in application and library
QPixmap::convertFromImage: Cannot convert a null image reader

over and over about 50 times.  I was getting a zlib error but i manually installed the libs and its not complaining anymore.

zethereal blows up good though.  the ipk and the gz files appear to be corrupt on the main site.  I cant seem to get all the libraries.

Code: [Select]
zethereal: error while loading shared libraries: cannot load shared object file: No such file or directory
On a side note.  how do you repackage ipk files?  i have just been opening them up in winrar and extracting files.

Thanks again for the rdesktop. i finally got the "Holy S***" i was digging for from the sysadmin today .

I got problem using the wifi connection. Using a d-link DCF-660W with a linksys wireless router. I can't connect when I choose to off my ssid broadcast and idea why?

Sorry if this has already been answered, but i have 3-4 pages to go and don't want to forget about it.

I found that using non letters in the ssid keeps it from connecting.  well using a ' does it.  Im guessing at other characters.  make your ssid short and simple and keep adding things to it until it stops working.

my ssid was something like "bob'splace".  When i changed it to "bobsplace" it worked great..  

again sorry if this is a dupe. I just didn't want to forget to post the info.

Also, while im at it, are you still taking requests for ipkg feeds?  If so, can you get rdesktop to work with your distro?  I think it would be very handy for general running around the building type network troubleshooting, which is what im building my zaurus to be.


shew make that about 13 pages to go.. brain fried now.  But, I didn't see a iron clad resolution to your problem so check your ssid.

Angstrom & OpenZaurus / Multiple Issues With 5600 (poodle?)
« on: May 08, 2005, 12:36:55 pm »
I just aquired a used 5600.  I am having serious issues with it.  mostly with system freezes.  sometimes these freezes include the network interfaces.  Sometimes, I can ssh into it when the screen freezes to reboot, sometimes i cant and have to push the reset button.

These freezes have occured when installing packages(usually on linking step), opening programs, closing programs, and when it is just sitting there.  I have not found any persistant logs that might give me a clue whats going on. the only odd error i have gotten is "bus error" on boot, in a terminal, and in a log once.

Each time it freezes it gets a little more unstable.  typically 10-20 freezes (about 45-90 minutes of actual use) makes the root filesystem too corrupt to repair (causing "wrong kernel" or "bus error" on boot) requiring a complete reflash of the OS.

I also am having the freeze on standby issue which i just tried applying the apm_bios fix.  it appears good right now but my current image is at about 50% integrety so i will try it on the next flash.

Also, how do i verify that i am using the pxa255 cpu?  bios reports 250 and /proc/cpuinfo reports 250.  The person i bought it from claims it was the 255.  The 255 image will not bootstrap.   So i can only assume the preivous owner lied/didn't know better.  no biggy really, just mentioned it incase it might help diagnose the problems

Also, VI is currently not working in the built in console.  the display is all screwed up.

I am using 3.5.3 opie images.  I have verified the md5 hash and as i mentioned before have flashed it several times already.

any ideas?  sorry if these issues have surfaced before,  the forum search isn't working for me for some reason.  It keeps giving me "an unknown error has occured, if you know what you did dont do it again, otherwise try again"  or somthing to that effect.
