General Discussion / 6000 Battery Bulge. Keep 6000 Or Sell?
« on: November 17, 2007, 12:25:45 am »
So I'm watching TV tonight and I noticed the 6000 wasn't lying flat on the table.  The battery had bulged.  I assume this is dangerous to use anymore (kinda scared it may shoot flames).  I'll try to safely discard the battery (city hazardous waste dump?) tomorrow.

I'm now at a crossroads.  Do I buy another battery (if it can be found) or do I sell what's left of the 6000?  I still have the 760 server and my everyday 3100.  Any suggestions?

General Discussion / Gift For My Sister
« on: December 05, 2006, 09:41:16 am »
Hello all,

So my sister has my old 5500 and I was thinking getting her an ir keyboard.  I've looked at some older threads about pocketop and belkin, but what is available today that will work with little install?  I think She's still running the tkc rom on it.

General Discussion / Possible New Cpu For Future Zs?
« on: November 10, 2006, 09:46:27 am »

"One of the first products to come out of this acquisition will be a new processor, previously code-named "Monahans", which will succeed the current "Bulverde" Xscale PXA270 generation. Monahans was first demonstrated in August of 2005 with a clock speed of up to 1.25 GHz with a promised performance capability that reaches into Pentium 4 territory, while consuming substantially less power.

Monahans, which was part of Intel's Hermon cellphone platform, is expected to be complemented by a Shader Model 3.0 capable graphics engine that is based on Imagination Technologies' PowerVR SGX blueprint. The SGX supports OpenGL ES 2.0, D3D Mobile, Open VG, Open GL 2.0 and DirectX9+ running under Linux, Symbian, WinCE and Windows Mobile OS. The fillrate of the chip ranges from 200 million to 1.2 billion pixels per second at a clock speed of 200 MHz. Polygon performances is rated at 2 to 13.5 million polygons per second."

Software / Knock Knock!
« on: November 06, 2006, 01:58:53 pm »
Is there a port knocking client for the Z?  I think knock is the main one and my initial searches have not shown any answers.

I'm toying with the idea of doing a remote sync/backup to the mac mini initiated using port knocking.  Currently the only ssh port available to the internet from my home network is through the 760.  I want to sync/backup directly to the mac, but I do not want that port open 24/7.

Software / Yahoo Maps Beta Flash Player 8
« on: July 27, 2006, 01:35:55 pm »
My boss has a symbian powered nokia 9300 and his phone can do the live traffic map from  My samsung can do it, but the screen is so much smaller.

Well the zaurus isn't a phone even though I tether to my bluetooth phone, but I thought I could run's maps beta.  It needs flash player 8.  Sigh.  It's just reminding me that some parts of at least the sharp rom is showing its age.

Can someone enlighten me if this is a correct synopsis or is there hope that the boss will have zaurus envy?  flash player 8 please....

General Discussion / Pdaxrom Vs Oz Or Even Sharp As A Server?
« on: June 23, 2006, 11:18:05 am »
What's your opinion or facts without turning this into a flame war?

Currently, I'm using rc12 as a ntpd, sshd and webserver to the internet and internal.  I have a procmail, fetchmail and mutt setup, but I want an SSL pop server so I can send and receive mail remotely with one of my other zaurii using the stock mail app.  I see OZ is close to completion and I am re-evaluating which ROM to use.  I want to compile a pop server for which rom I choose.

The cons with pdaxrom so far are
- I have a cron to restart ntpd everyday because it dies every couple of days
- once a month or two the desktop is frozen and I restart it using an ssh session.
- about once every two months the Z hard locks and has to be rebooted.

I am also in negotiations with my CFO (wife) for a mac mini which takes up much more power than a Z, but less than a light bulb.  It also has much more software options and might be more stable as a 24/7 server.

C1000/3x00 Hardware / Usb And Phone As A Modem
« on: June 20, 2006, 03:04:41 pm »
Hi All,

Bluetooth DUN on a sprint phone works fine.  I'm getting ~290kbps.  I want to use a USB cable to use the phone's DUN as the speed is supposed to increase more in the 400-700 range.  The problem is that when I plug my phone in, I'm not sure what is supposed to happen.  So far nothing in the network applet.  I guess I could look at dmesg when I get home (that's where I left the cable).

It is a samsung a920

Sharp ROMs / Cacko+kino2!=shoutcast
« on: May 01, 2006, 04:44:11 pm »
Hey Guys,

Can someone confirm that they can listen to shoutcast urls through cacko's kino2?

I know I've used kino2 to listen to shoutcast urls before, but I haven't been able to do it on the one installed with cacko.  I've tried running it manually through mplayer and I've disabled iptables.

Site Suggestions, Requests, and Updates / Is The Site Server Dying?
« on: April 19, 2006, 01:10:22 pm »
Usually late morning for me (EDT).  I see some mysql errors sometimes when the site is down.

I do appreciate this site and started this thread to offer help if needed.  I'm sure there are some very seasoned admins lurking somewhere on this board.  No offence is intended, just a seeing if help is needed.

Angstrom & OpenZaurus / Openzaurus As A (proxy?) Mail Server
« on: March 21, 2006, 03:56:25 pm »
Hi Guys,

I was gearing up to make my pdaxrom 760 server to be a mail server that would allow me to send/receive mail on the 3100 (using bluetooth phone) in a more secure environment.  At least more secure than my ISP's clear text.

I was planning on using:

fetchmail - to get mail from ISP
procmail - deliver mail to mbox
courier with tls - ssl pop mail to 3100
nomail - perl script in place of sendmail to relay mail back to ISP

I would move in a heartbeat to 3.5.4 gpe if I knew there were equivalents in the feed (I only saw fetchmail and I don't know what alternative programs to look for) or that the packages (I believe they are for the sharp rom) I do have would work on openzaurus.

BTW is ntpd included in the ntp packages?

General Discussion / First Impression Of Umpcs And Oragmi
« on: March 09, 2006, 09:57:51 am »

it looks like it will be *at least* another year before they threaten our pdas.  It's bigger (not pocketable), heavier (2lb), longer to turn on and 2 hour run time.  If I'm going to napsack it, I'm going to bring an ultra portable notebook that has more resolution, more process speed and longer battery life instead of the UMPC.

It would be much more efficient for me if the site had another "view new posts" link at the bottom of the page.  After reading a page, I have to scroll back up to get the latest posts.  Thanks for your time.

C1000/3x00 Hardware / Socket Bt: Work Out Of The Box?
« on: February 28, 2006, 04:50:48 pm »
- the Z recognizes it when the card is inserted (socket rev 2.5).

- bluetooth - ppp profile cannot get bluetooth settings from it (network app)

- commandline sdptool browse returns "inquiry failed".  A bluetooth phone was available at the time.

I'm confused about what I am seeing because the rev K is supposed to be cacko 1.23 friendly.  The belkin card responded much better.  Am I doing something wrong?

Accessories / Belkin F8t020
« on: February 22, 2006, 11:39:34 pm »
I just received a belkin bluetooth card and I confirmed I can use dun, but I noticed that I have to eject and reinsert the card to get it going again.  I know I can do the cardctl eject and reset from commandline.

I read about this problem before, but there was a solution to this in the previous cacko release (ejects and resets automatically).  The question is why does this occur with the latest cacko? do I need to install the suspend ipkgs that supposedly took care of this?

BTW the belkin is bigger than I thought.  If I get a socket card, would I have same problem?

Accessories / Belkin Or Socket Bluetooth
« on: February 15, 2006, 04:50:21 pm »
They both seem compatible with cacko, but what about other roms or the stock sharp rom (6000l).

The belkin is much cheaper, but how much does it stick out?  If it is the same or less than a socket *wifi* card, then I may go with that.  I haven't found any numbers to tell me if one uses less power than the other.

Thanks to all who respond.  Constructive opinions are welcomed
