New products and alternatives / Ipocketmac?
« on: June 18, 2007, 03:03:33 pm »
in "Zaurus Replacement" news...  how about a Mac?

using an Intel Core Solo, the Sony UX seems to have the most "performance" in a pocketable device currently on the market despite other limitations.
Among wonders, it appears to tolerably run OS X!

these work:
    * GMA950 Graphic Display Adapter
    * Advanced Power Management Support
    * Hi-Speed USB 2.0 Controller Support
    * Ethernet Controller (Wired)
    * Bluetooth Built-In Adapter
    * TouchScreen Support

these don't:
    * Fingerprint Support
    * Memory Stick Built-In Slot
    * Backlight Support
    * i-Touch Quick Access Keys
    * Camera (Motion Eye)

these might (not yet):
    * 3945 Network Adapter (Wireless)
    * High Definition Audio Support

Aside from the Sony,  OQO model 1 (and I think 2) have been reported
NOT to work with OSX.  Flipstart may be possible;  its CPU is slower and
only supports SSE2 but hasn't been confirmed or denied.

Apparently some keyboardless UMPCs also have had sucess,
but they (tend to) be slower still, and probably less interesting to Zaurers.

General Discussion / Chinese Quickstart Or Howto?
« on: May 18, 2007, 11:03:48 am »
It looks like Meanie and a few others have had good results with scim in pdaXrom;
possibly cacko and Sharp rom; some have tried to reproduce their results, and some succeed.

I've been trying with scim and pdaXrom- b3/Xii13/b4/r198 but haven't had
ANY luck getting it to actually work.   Possible problems with fonts,
possibly with scim setup, possibly missing other components, possible bugs.

Can anyone who *has* gotten Chinese text input working reliably, in any
pdaXrom variant (or even, any non-pdaXrom variant) please describe
the necessary steps,  necessary packages, etc, to get this working?

With abiword or (hopefully) lighter-weight editor?
Any possibility of a console (vi, joe, etc) editor?


For Sale / Wanted / C760 - Broken Video
« on: March 31, 2005, 02:31:46 pm »
I seem to have borked my Z in a fairly permanent fashion,
from water damage, over the weekend.  On inspection, there appears to be
some corrosion on the contacts for the video cable;
LCD panel  however, remains good.  Backlight and touchscreen respond okay,
just no video output.

The machine boots fine, and with usb/wifi network is a fully operational
machine.   It's currently running pdaXrom 1.1rc8.  
Flash is fine,  nothing other than video seems to have failed
 (and the screen itself did not get wet)

The case has some minor wear-and-tear but otherwise is operable.

It might be of use to someone doing experimental hw mods.
It might be of use to someone who needs a new LCD panel
It might be of use to someone who just wants a Zaurus to ssh into, for native

Selling SL-C760 with:
EA-72 power adaptor (japanese)
BL06 or BL08 battery (sorry, not both)
USB adaptor cable
Japanese CD, manuals, packaging
CF camera card
small battery cover
large battery cover
CF cover
one fairly attractive (if worn) leather case which has bad karma
because it failed to protect my Zaurus!  I'm not convinced that anyone
else really would want this

Not selling -  
BL06 or BL08
Linksys CF-12 wifi

any offers,  (or interest?) you can respond here or to:

proceeds will go toward a new C1000 hopefully

Cxx0 Hardware / sustained writes to SD (is there a solution?)
« on: May 01, 2004, 02:26:19 pm »
There have been several threads posted over the past year and a half, from users with various sizes and brands of SD card that for some reason or another, just WONT work with sustained write.

Some suggestions have been offered:

 * Patching the kernel to allow async (or FS_SYNC=N) access to SD
 * mounting the partition with -o async options
 * using \"updated\" sd drivers (a new mmc_sd.o was posted to ZUG some time ago)
 * trying a different brand, different size of SD card
 * mounting as a loopback device
 * format as fat/ext2

For people with SD write issues, which of these has worked?
In my limited experience, with a new Lexar 256mb SD,
   both cacko qt (1.21) and pdaxrom (1.0.5) kernels showed problems
   mounting with and without -o async didn\'t help
   the patched mmc_sd.o does not initialize properly, and doesn\'t load right
   both fat and ext2 seem to show similar issues

has anyone found a way (reliably) to get their flaky SD working with sustained writes?

What SD media do you use (brand, size) and have you had any problems so far?

Sorry for the horrible ugly poll  [there should be a better way to condense this, or at least allow more poll options]

Hello Zaurusers,

I\'m interested in buying a C-series Z,  preferably a C750+
but a C700\'s also possible.

I\'m in the US, so shipping-to-US would be helpful.

send email to: if you have anything
