Mac Issues / Can\'t get SL-5500 to sync with Mac OS 10.3
« on: January 12, 2004, 11:15:38 pm »

Been trying to get my SL-5500 to sync with my PowerBook G4 for a week or more now.  I have Trolltech Qtopia desktop 1.7.0 installed on the PB.  The PB is running 10.3.

I have the 3.5 release of OpenZaurus flashed into the SL-5500.

I notice that my Sync and Sync All buttons inside Qtopia Desktop are always greyed out?

I\'m also not quite able to get the two machines to ping each other.

Any ideas?  I would love to get it to sync up... it\'s the missing link that\'s keeping me from using the SL-5500 more than my Palm T3.



General Discussion / C860 CD?
« on: January 09, 2004, 10:48:10 pm »
Could someone post an ISO of their C860 CD?

I\'ve been tearing my house apart looking for it after my holiday travels and I fear it left with Santa.  :cry:

Thanks in advance,


For Sale / Wanted / Anyone want an SL-c860?
« on: January 03, 2004, 10:32:45 pm »
I\'m considering selling my recently aquired Zaurus SL-C860. I got it a few weeks ago from Dynamism and played with it for about a week and it\'s been setting on my desk ever since.

It\'s a little more device than I have time to really get into at the moment for that price , especially with my wedding come up next month.  I have an SL-5500 on order for me to start on and I captured it for under $200.  I paid about $900 for the SL-C860.

Is there any interest in this device?  I\'m considering posting it on eBay.

Thank you for your interest.


Sharp ROMs / tkcROM flash procedure?
« on: December 14, 2003, 11:01:16 pm »
What\'s the reason there isn\'t a zImage file for the tkcROM?

I have the C860.

Do I just put the initd.bin and on a CF card and do the flash procedure?



Software / Zaurus Web Browsers
« on: December 14, 2003, 09:53:46 pm »
What are some of the web browsers that people are having success with on their Zaurus.

I know that NetFront comes with the C860 and I\'ve seen some references to Opera.  I wonder if anyone has tried Mozilla, etc?


Sharp ROMs / PIM file formats?
« on: December 13, 2003, 10:25:36 pm »

Does anyone know what file format the Address Book, Calendar, and ToDo apps on the Sharp ROM uses?

I can\'t get my C860 with Sharp ROM to sync with anything yet, so I was wondering if there was a way to import the info from either my Mac apps, Palm Desktop, Windows Outlook, or my Palm Tungsten T3 or HP iPaq H4155?

Thanks in advance.


Sharp ROMs / Anyone have Gaim running on Sharp Rom?
« on: December 13, 2003, 11:19:59 am »
Currently I\'m using an English translated version of the original Sharp ROM on my C860.   I would like to get a chat programming running.

Has anyone gotten Gaim to work on the Sharp ROM or know of any other chat client that works well on the Sharp ROM?



General Discussion / SL-6000 shy or what?
« on: December 13, 2003, 01:08:47 am »
Has anyone seen anything about the SL-6000 since the one Sharp press release that has been plastered on the net back in late November?

It seems that after that press release came out, the SL-6000 got stage fright?

Angstrom & OpenZaurus / OZ 3.3.5 + ambicom wl110c-cf ?
« on: December 11, 2003, 06:41:15 pm »

I\'m trying to get my Ambicom CF wi-fi working with OZ 3.3.5 on the C860.

Any hints?  

I get a solid green power light and the OZ pops up a text box saying a WiFi card was recognized.

Now what?  



Angstrom & OpenZaurus / Upgrading to OZ?
« on: December 10, 2003, 06:23:35 am »

Very new to Zaurus still.  Trying to flash my new C860 with OZ 3.3.5.

Went here:

placed the, zimage, and initrd onto a SD card and went into the flash menu.

However, I\'m not sure that OZ 3.3.5 \"took\"?  I think I saw one error message about modprobe or something during the update.  When the machine finally pulled back into the OS, it looked the same as before?

Anyway to officially tell if I am running OZ?



General Discussion / Got C860... now what?
« on: December 09, 2003, 10:14:57 pm »
Just got my C860 today!!  

However, my Japanese is REALLY poor (okay, no-existent), so I couldn\'t figure out anything on the CD.

I have machines running Mac OS 10.3, Windows XP, and SuSE 9.0.

I got an Ambicom Wi-Fi CF card for the Zaurus and have the Wi-Fi surfing the web and pingable on my local home network.

Now... I want to get some address book and calendar info synced up to the Zaurus.

Where should I start?  BTW, how can I backup the original ROM and which one should I just to first?
