Zaurus - pdaXrom / Wireless Problems(sandisk) With Pdaxii13 (akita)
« on: February 21, 2007, 05:11:10 pm »
I'm trying to get my SanDisk Connect Plus (the one where you have to manually upload the firmware) working on my 1000 with pdaXii13 but i am having problems with it.
I think it might be because it uses a newer version of the hostap drivers?

It loads up fine, but when i do dhcpcd wlan0 it blinks and looks like its working but doesnt get an ip address. Then i have to rip it out, put it back in then try again and i'm able to connect for about 20-30 seconds before it dies.
When i use it on pdaxrom beta 1, everything works very nicely..
(I think they use version 16? of the drivers, it usually complains about the drivers being old and may not have new features)
Has anyone else had problems with this?

So my two questions
1. How do i recompile wireless drivers for pdaXii13? Any advice would be much appreciated

2. I think the auto SD/CF card mount may be conflicting with things as well, b/c the card  also has 128MB of disk space but apparently you cant use the disk at the same time as using wifi. Is there a way to turn off the automount for just CF cards??

Thanks a bunch for the help!!
I exited X and ran the script again.
The only things that are different now are in X it takes longer to get the icons on the right to pop up.
Also, the terminal icon on the left doesnt show up anymore.

Im a huge fan of the transparent rxvt though!! I've been trying to get a nice console like this for pdaXrom for a while but gave up. Just one thing, how do i add more tabs??

Also, i copyed sdmgr to /sbin but with no luck.
When i try to start the service it doesn't print the [ OK ]

Sounds good, I'll try it out tonight.

Just one thing, do i have to use a CF card??
I only have SD will that work? i realize why i need to stop the SD service.. (to upgrade the SD driver, ya?)

humm...well, i'll figure something out..
Ill let you know..

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Down?
« on: January 08, 2007, 09:14:40 pm » is down about 80% of the time for me... =(

I would be extremely happy to mirror pdaxrom if you want me to. =)

Just let me know.. I think there are other people frustrated with the server issues besides me..

Hey Chero,
Thanks for all the work making the packages for xfce!
Its definately my favorite X manager and use it for everything..
I was just wondering though if you could make a wiki for the installation/current bugs/updates/etc of xfce because 18 pages of forums is a little too much to read for most people
Itd be nice if we could organize things like this into concise wiki's.
I have something in mind like the Gentoo Wikis. great stuff.

anyways, just a suggestion. if youre too busy, dont worry about it

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Compiling Perl Modules For Terminal (xfce)
« on: February 15, 2006, 10:41:53 pm »
Has anyone had any luck compiling perl modules? I'd like to get terminal working on xfce. (would be very happy). I tried several things but unfortunately it was about 2 weeks ago and i forget what i did, but i do remember not being successful at all. I havent seen any posts about how to compile perl modules or anything so if you had any success please let me know. (I think i just need the XML Parser to install terminal?) thnx

Sharp ROMs / Cacko Rom 1.23 Is Released
« on: January 17, 2006, 08:45:57 am »
ok, so i have been running cacko 1.23 on my 3100 and i love it! it works very nicely.. however, i finally ran into a problem once i reformatted my hdd3 as ext3. (so i can put pocketworkstation on it)
i changed the rc.rofilesys with changed to mount hdd3 as ext3 but no luck. I ended up reflashing cacko and now the rc.rofilesys is an 8 byte file that just says "#exit 0"  what happened to rc.rofilesys?? Everything still boots up except for the error in mounting hda3. When i'm in cacko the microdrive light is always flashing and it shows up in 'cardctl info' and i can mount it manually. However it would be nice if it got mounted correctly in the startup...

So here are my questions:
1. Does cacko use the rc-rofilesys file?? (i noticed cacko will still startup fine without so i'm guessing no..)

2. If it doens't use rc-rofilesys then how do i fix my problem above?

3. What are hda1 & hda2 used for??  (i used to have sys & .sys directories but they somehow went away...)

If you still have default partitioning, you're simply wasting some space (approx 30 Mb) in your internal flash. I'd suggest to resise your root partition and reflash the ROM.

4. Why does the space get wasted? If i have 128M of ROM space and i allocate 30 for the root partition where does the rest go??

Thanks so much for a GREAT rom!!

Zaurus - pdaXrom / 1.1.0beta1 Is Out!
« on: January 06, 2006, 11:15:31 pm »
i have one pro and one con that i noticed about beta1

upgrading from rc12 i can now use my bluetooth gps.. all the previous versions bt wouldn't allow me to connect unless i was really really lucky.. (and i'm not a very lucky person).. so now i can use bt (hopefully! need to test a little more..)!! =]

beta1 has a terrible problem with suspending and never coming back.. i notice this especially when i leave a CF wifi card in.. however, i just did a cardctl eject removed it and hit suspend and the screen turned darker but hung.. so i think theres some problems with the suspend script.... i had to hard reset about 10 times in the past 10 minutes.. =(

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Wireless Woes...=(
« on: January 06, 2006, 11:10:46 pm »
so i've been trying to get wireless working on pdaxrom for a long time now..and keep having problems..
my setup
3100: cacko 1.23
6000: beta1

on the 3100 w/ the cacko rom i can use wireless on my planex/io-data right out the the box.. (low-power sandisk doesn't work)
i want to be able to do everything from the command line so in cacko i have to type
Code: [Select]
cardctl scheme CardResumefor it to work..
if i type
Code: [Select]
cardctl scheme my-created-wifi-schemeit wont work.. iwconfig will show wlan0 up but with much less detailed info and i can't manipulate anything.. (ie. iwconfig wlan0 mode monitor, etc..)

whats weird is that when i run "cardctl scheme my-wifi" it says it downloads the firmware into the card's RAM just fine but doesn't work.. but when i run "cardctl scheme CardResume" i get massive errors but it works....

So on pdaxrom beta 1 on my 6000 i can get it to bind to hostap but i get "operation prohibited" when i try to change anything.. and no luck with changing cardctl at all =(
Has anyone else gotten wireless to work for them? 6000 bug??

I read in other forums that i have to upload firmware for the PLANEX card but when i run
Code: [Select]
prism2_srec -gs wlan0 /etc/firmware/pm010102.hexi get
Code: [Select]
Verifying update compatibility and combining data:
Failed to parse 'pci' or 'sram_type' from /proc/net/hostap/wlan0/debug
Incompatible update data.
i remember i was able to do this with my sandisk wlan with rc10..
i wonder why this happens now.. it seems other people have this problem too..

so to clarify something..
Do ALL wifi cards need firmware to be uploaded to RAM (always the pm010102.hex & rfxxx.hex??) (I thought the sandisk was different b/c it was the only one that gave problems b/c you had to manually upload firmware)

any help is very appreciated..thanks..

Sharp ROMs / Cacko 1.23 + Qpegps/mobilemap = Screen Problem
« on: January 03, 2006, 08:52:13 pm »
i have cacko 1.23 installed on my 3100 and would really like to get gps working with either qpegps or mobile map but both programs when i run them run in portrait mode for some reason and all the windows/fonts get really big making it unusable. When i close the program the screen turns back to normal.
Have you tried the usual (and frequently posted) fix?:
 1. hold down the stylus on the program icon until the "Details" window pops up
 2. remove the check from "Display with magnified screen"

As for the Japanese font issue with mobilemap, I don't know; however, mobilemap will not be of much use to you unless you live in Japan.

Thanks so much!
That worked perfect. i wonder why that got checked...
I solved the japanese font problem by changing the locale.
Now if i could only get my bluetooth gps working with mobile map...

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Problems Initializing Wifi Card
« on: January 03, 2006, 06:02:50 am »
I'm having a weird issue using the IO-DATA wlan card. (hostap drivers)
On the cacko rom, when i insert it i get wifi0 & wlan0 recognized with iwconfig but if i  try to do iwconfig wlan0 mode monitor or anything to change it i get:
Code: [Select]
error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06) :
   SET failed on device wlan0: Operation not supported.
(btw, i'm root)
and if i do ifconfig wlan0 up it doesn't complain but when i run ifconfig again wlan0 doesn't show up...

however, if i use the wireless applet in cacko i can connect to my AP and after its initialized i can then do stuff from the command line (put it in mon mode, etc...)

on pdaxrom,
i added the entry into hostap_cs.conf and wlan0 comes up with iwconfig now (however, no wifi0) and i have the same problem with not being able to do anything from the command line =( hence i can't use it..

any help would be appreciated..
