I'm considering spinning up this distro again as a side project. How many folks are still active in the Zaurus community?

I wouldn't expect a fix any time soon... :-p

A new Linux vulnerability has been just discovered, called CVE-2016-5195 or "Dirty Cow", and it has been lurking in the code for at least 9 years, so probably most or all the kernels released for the Zaurus are affected:

I check back every so often. Like ArchiMark said, OpenBSD is the most active.


Zaurus - pdaXrom / Symbol Spectrum24 Modules For R197 & R198?

Yes, this was exactly what i just did today.
It seems the firmware is not freely distributable (thanks to louigi600 for making me aware of this), so i can't attach them here.

For those who are need the firmware of symbol cards or cards using prism chipset:
#0.  You don't need to use the source file of the driver.
#1.  Extract the attached tool set. There should be a few *nix executable files.
#2.  In the terminal, run the command named "get_xyz_fw", according to the hardware of your card.
(In my case, i use get_symbol_fw because my card is Symbol Spectrum24). The firmware will be downloaded to the same directory where you run the command.
#3.  Create the directory in you Z: mkdir -p /usr/lib/hotplug/firmware
#4.  Copy ALL the firmware files to this directory.  
#5.  Insert the card. The card will work if it is the correct firmware.

I know it's been many years since the posts in this thread, but hoping that someone will see this and be able to advise.....

Just got a 3100 after several years without a Zaurus....came with the Symbol Spectrum24 card....have tried a variety of things to get card recognized and working, but so far, no go...

Have just done the instructions above, but still get message in Wireless Monitor that no wireless cards detected. However, in the card applet I use, it recognizes that the Spectrum card has been inserted into 3100.....

In lsmod, I see:

Code: [Select]
Module              Size     Used by     Tainted: P
spectrum_cs      7000      0    (unused)
firmware_class  3816       0    (spectrum_cs)
orinoco            40492      0    (spectrum_cs)
hermes             4960       0    (spectrum_cs)

plus a bunch of others, don't think related to wifi cards.....

In dmesg, I see:

Code: [Select]
orinoco 0.15rc2HEAD (David Gibson , Pavel Roskin , et al)
spectrum_cs 0.15rc2HEAD (Pavel Roskin , David Gibson , et al)
spectrum_cs: Cannot find firmware: symbol_sp24t_prim_fw
spectrum_cs: Firmware download failed
hermes @ IO 0xf6000000: Timeout waiting for card to reset (reg=0x0000)!
wlan0: failed to initialize firmware (err = -110)
spectrum_cs: register_netdev() failed

If I do iwconfig, I get:

Code: [Select]
lo   no wireless extensions

irda0  no wireless extensions

If I do ifconfig wlan0, I get:

Code: [Select]
wlan0: error fetching interface information: Device not found

Any suggestions?????

Thank you for any help!


What OS are you running?

I've moved on to become an Apple Fanboy. I do iOS development now and I'm about 6 months away from putting an app in the AppStore.

Hi Jon_J,

I've tried to install a Cacko, but you must "Tap" on the screen => No results.
I've also try with a PdaXrom, same result

Quote from: Jon_J
If you have Cacko loaded try to recalibrate the screen.
Navigate using the keyboard to the "Settings" screen. (Use the "Home" key to switch tabs to "Settings").
Next, using the arrow pad, navigate to "Recalibrate". It is self explanatory, as I just did it on my C3100.

Thanks for your reply

From the command line, remove /etc/pointercal and run startx again.
or ts_calibrate should do the trick.

this one should work.

Keep in mind these tools were built with 2.6 kernel headers, different gcc and glibc.
