Zaurus - pdaXrom / Status Of Pdaxrom

Quote from: koan
I was really hoping that chiark was going to propose putting together some scripts etc and bring all pdaXromii13 files together to make it easier to install the latest version with all the patches pre-applied. Or perhaps get the wiki completely up to date on how to do it. Or try to find out why pdaXrom dropped the Zaurus, maybe they just didn't have anyone who owned one anymore ? And so on. I don't think it's completely beyond us to continue where Meanie left off or to create our own distribution. If we had a small team slowly working towards it, I think we can do it (eventually).

One thing I can definitely do is update the wiki, however at the moment I'm not even sure what patches are available for pdaXii13 .  My scripting is somewhat limited, but agreed it's not rocket science.  I will also start on the pdaXrom question...

Agreed, one person with passion and enthusiasm (and a little time) can make a hell of a difference.  I'll do what I can, so will start the research into patches, etc.  I'll also host what I find.

Now, can anyone give me pointers as to the status of patches?

I suspect you're right.  I must admit that I had a deposit down on a Pandora, but cancelled after the paypal/bank deposit debacle...  Once they have stock, I'll probably jump.  I think that shows I'm not happy with life on the bleeding edge

If I can get a stable device using pdaxii13 dual booted, I'll be happy and likewise I'll share what I build.  I would not expect a lot

Hi Koan, at the moment I'm not proposing anything: unfortunately I don't have the necessary skills to build kernels and package for the Z...  What I'd love to see though is some form of Zaurus distro that is modern, fresh, fully-featured, stable, etc  and I might be able to help coordinate it, but that's probably stretching the truth too

It looks like Meanie started off with just that intention with pdaxng: I'll drop him a PM to see how far he got with it.  It might be that angstrom, or zubuntu, or something like those are the future for the Z, but it definitely deserves to be optimised to the unique environment that the Z lives in.

PM'ing meanie now.  If I hear back, I'll update the thread.

Thanks!  That's a great synopsis!
I tried pdaXii13 for the past 2 days and one annoying bug that I remember from 1000 days still appears to be there: sometimes, the device point blank will not respond to the power button.  This drove me up the wall with the 1000...  Do any of the SPs work for fixing it?

It seems that Meanie also has a page aboutpdaXng: is there any work happening on that?  Sounds interesting  !

For the moment I've gone back to Cacko 1.23 and might look at dual booting with pdaXii13...  But that one bug bought memories of lost notes flooding back!

It's a real shame that there seems to be a general lack of manpower behind the Z now, it still has a purpose in this day and age.

Sorry for the dumb question, but I'm confused as to pdaxrom on the Zaurus platform.  I've just purchased an SL-C3100 after a couple of years away from the Z - I had an Akita that I sold.

It seems pdaxrom continues, but is nothing to do with Zaurus.  Could it be be brought back to the Z?  Should it be brought back to the Z?  Is anyone else interested?

It seems feeds are a little missing in action: anything we can do collectively to organise those?

Sorry for all the questions which can probably be found by 2 days searching, but after 2 days searching I'm now more confused than ever
Thanks in advance

Any clues on battery life?  Nokia say 3 hours of use, which ain't exactly hot.

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Pdaxrom On Sigmarion Iii

This would still be great hardware to run pdaxrom on (especially now I'm zaurus-less!)

I'll see if I can get hold of xromer...

sorry to see you selling it... is this your only one?

Yes, this is my only one...  I have found that I'm not using the device when compared to my Sigmarion 3, and that's purely down to the form factor: it's too small for me to use effectively.

It is a beautiful thing though

yes, the 200lx would IMHO be a great design ethos to follow for this, but with a slightly more user friendly keyboard.

BTW, I've given up on the U100 for the moment and have bought a Sony PCG-U3 which is surprisingly useful... (end off topic  )
