Gemini PDA - Hardware / Hot to touch when charging
« on: October 11, 2018, 11:58:51 am »
When charging with the provided charger, the Gemini gets very warm. Is this normal for others? I know the charger negotiates a higher current / voltage (beyond 5V / .5A), but I would figure the heat will damage the battery and reduce its life over time.

Gemini PDA - Linux / Automatic Headphone Audio Switching?
« on: September 25, 2018, 11:51:14 pm »
Does anybody have automatic headphone audio switching working under the Planet Computers provided Debian TP2 environment?

I can switch audio manually using the 'PulseAudio Volume Control' application (pavucontrol?), but I've yet to find a way to set PulseAudio to automatically switch output from the built in speakers to headphones when I plug into the 3.5mm audio jack.


OpenBSD / Openbsd 5.5/zaurus : X Does Not Work With Default Config
« on: May 05, 2014, 10:39:07 am »
TronDD and I have noticed an issue running X on 5.5 release. From my experience before, Zaurus' X server 'just worked' without any necessary configuration.
Running startx results in black screen for a few seconds, and then a return to the console. Anyone else noticing the same behavior?

OpenBSD / Openbsd 5.4/zaurus Issues
« on: April 22, 2014, 09:55:06 am »
I noticed that there's some activity on the forum around OpenBSD, and wanted to see if others had experienced the same thing I have.

I've got a SL-C3100.

Trying to play audio causes a kernel panic:
- I noticed that none of the typical /dev/audio or /dev/audioctl handles were created by default, so I ran
[div class=\'codetop\']CODE[/div][div class=\'codemain\' style=\'height:200px;white-space:pre;overflow:auto\']/dev/MAKEDEV[/div]
- Installed vorbis-tools from packages and attempted
[div class=\'codetop\']CODE[/div][div class=\'codemain\' style=\'height:200px;white-space:pre;overflow:auto\']ogg123 -d sndio -o dev:rsnd/1 (ogg file)[/div]
which took me to a ddb prompt.

Has anyone else had success playing sound with the Z?

Suspend / Hibernate are not working properly:
- Suspend causes LCD 'white out', but does not appear to power off. LCD backlight does not turn off automatically, or when the lid is closed. Also, the SD slot is detached at suspend and reattached at resume.
- Hibernate does nothing other than output
[div class=\'codetop\']CODE[/div][div class=\'codemain\' style=\'height:200px;white-space:pre;overflow:auto\']Hibernating system...[/div].

Has anyone else seen issues with suspend / hibernate on their SL-Cxx00?

Other than those issues, the Z runs OpenBSD just fine. The wifi card I had worked without issue and the SD driver works better than the native Cacko one did!

Well, I'm cleaning out the gadgetry and trying to get rid of some of the stuff that I just don't have time for anymore.

That being said, I've got one SL5500 and three SL5600 PDAs that need a new home. Of the SL5600s, there are two PXA255s and one PXA250. I picked these up from a bulk purchase, so they are all well used, but in working condition. They come with battery, but nothing else. I think I restored them to factory default a while back, but honestly I would recommend giving them a fresh start when you get them. Battery life is probably going to be weak, and it doesn't come with a stylus, but you can't beat free. All that I'm asking for is the cost of shipping. I would prefer to ship in the CONUS, but I don't mind shipping internationally if people are willing to pay for it.

Sharp PC-Z1 NetWalker / Sharp Netwalker Pc-z1, Who Has One?
« on: October 03, 2009, 04:31:23 pm »
Well, I ponied up for the Netwalker, and I was just wondering who else here has done the same.

Is there any interest in the OESF community to support this device?
Ubuntu is on it natively, but who knows what else you folks could shove in the thing!

5x00 General discussions / Sl-5500 Cacko Rom / Kernel Gone
« on: August 19, 2009, 07:59:35 pm »
I just received some used Zauri, one of which being an sl-5500. I have flashed them to Cacko before, but it appears that is now down. I've looked all over and can't find the files anywhere. ZUG downloads are broken, the actual cacko site doesn't have the sl-5500 version, so it looks like the 5500 + cacko has suffered bit-rot. Anybody have a copy of the files?

For Sale / Wanted / For Sale, Sl-c3100 , Sl-5500, Cfxga Video Card
« on: July 11, 2009, 06:01:20 pm »
I'm cleaning out my apartment and some of the gadgetry must go.

I'm hoping someone will bite on this in the next few days, if not, they'll go to eBay.

1. SL-C3100 with accessories
- Planex GW-CF11X, CF wifi card, works with Cacko 1.23
- CaseLogic hard drive soft case, fits the Z perfectly with a pouch for the wifi card
- Sharp power adapter (US plug, 100-240V input, 5V 2A out)

The 3100 is in very nice shape. Comes with stylus, screen protector installed and no nasty scratches. This was my backup machine, so it didn't see any day to day use. I'm asking $250.

2. SL-5500 with accessories
- Symbol LA4137 CF wifi card, works with OZ 3.5.4
- Docking station
- Extra battery
- 1 GB SD card (has OZ on it right now)
- Sharp CE-AG06 CF camera (haven't tested this in OZ, but it worked with Sharp ROM)

The SL-5500 is working well, but is a little beat up. No screen cover (stick on or the plastic cover), but it does come with stylus and the IO port cover. I don't have a spare power supply for this, but any PSP power supply will work. Scratches and discoloration on the case, but nothing distracting. Looking to get $50, with the accessories it's probably worth more, and I'd probably list it for more on feebay.

This is basically the same as how I got it. I used it for a little bit but it did not work out for me (by no fault of it's own, it's fully working). Just wasn't performing for the application I wanted it for. You can see a pic of it here: .
I paid $70, and that's what I'm asking for it. We'll call it 'borrowing from the collective'.

For all of these, I will ship worldwide. Buyer pays for shipping. I prefer shipping USPS, but will ship however the buyer prefers. Paypal is preferred.
You can reach me at gmail, same as my user name here.

New products and alternatives / Zipit Z2 Wireless Messenger
« on: April 02, 2009, 08:20:24 pm »
So I stumbled on this little device, and it looks very interesting. A wifi enabled Instant Messaging device. Supposedly there's a contract involved to use the service but I'm sure this can be avoided with custom software.
I admit I"m a little slow on the uptake, this has been out for a while now.

300Mhz Xscale processor
320x240 QVGA display
qwerty thumbboard
built in 802.11 b/g support
32mb RAM
8mb boot RAM
Mini SD (SDHC) slot -up to 8GB capacity reported
1000mAh battery

all this at $49 bucks retail!

At this price I bought a couple of them and won't worry about them being lost / stolen / broken, etc. A disposable 'in my pocket' device. Unlike the Zaurus. It's like my baby.

I believe development for these is done in OE, so I figure there's gotta be some folks from the Angstrom boards that have tried this out. Anyone with recommendations? How capable is this device? I'm not looking for Zaurus killer, but being able to web browse / PIM / take notes / emulate NES would be pretty awesome.

With the platform similarities, it might even be capable to get a favorite like Cacko running on the thing!

For Sale / Wanted / Wtb: Battery Door Switch For Sl-c3x00
« on: February 14, 2009, 08:35:28 pm »
I received an SL-C3200 that doesn't have the battery door switch. Everything (amazingly!) still works without it, including reflashing and booting to console.

BUT, I want to have a complete Z. Does anyone have a dead Z that it could be 'harvested' from? I would be willing to pay $5 plus shipping if anyone is interested.

For Sale / Wanted / Want To Buy/trade: Ibm Pc110
« on: November 11, 2008, 09:20:58 pm »
- IBM PC110 Palmtop Computer
- I'm in the US
- Willing to buy or trade, I have a Zaurus 3100 and a Zaurus 3200 as well as some accessories if someone is interested in one of them. I also have several Toshiba Librettos (older 50s, 70s and an M3) around too.

Basically, I'm looking for one of these little guys in decent working shape, it can have dings and such, but it needs the full 8MB of RAM, preferably MORE if it has been modded. It's gotta have the dock and floppy drive too. Thanks for taking a look guys.

Well guys, this is as close as it gets to a Z killer for me. I've been (and still am) an avid Toshiba Libretto user for the past few years. The 50CT, 70CT and an imported M3 got me by in an 8'' x 4.5'' 1'' form factor that was easily touch type for even my large hands.

Everun Review from UMPCPortal

Last month RAON released the Everun Note. In a very similar form factor (a cm shorter and a cm taller) it boasts the following:
2 USB ports
1 USB mini B port (for use as a hard drive: you can actually plug this laptop into another PC and it shows up as a portable HD)
SD card slot
USIM card slot (currently there isn't a 3G /HDSPA receiver in the laptop, though the pads are there!)
PCIe slot
60 GB HD
1GB ram
Dual Core AMD 1.2Ghz proc (which is faster than it sounds; this is leaps better than the current net book stuff)
ATI something or another beefy GFX card, I can't remember

At any rate, it's something I can touchtype on again that is pretty dang small.
The ups are size and power, the downs are the funny mouse and battery life (a pale 2.5 hrs), but for Libretto lovers, I think this is the next thing. Check it out and discuss.

OpenBSD / Usb Or Ir Keyboard In Openbsd ?
« on: October 15, 2008, 06:27:46 pm »
Alright! I got 4.3 on the Zaurus compliments of gen2's great work! Now I'm trying to make it useful.

I've got a usb host cable which works pretty well in Cacko land with both a USB mini mouse and my 'The Virtually Indestructible Keyboard'. In OpenBSD, neither of these work. Is there some sort of special procedure, either hardware or software wise, to get a mouse to work in X or a keyboard to work in console (and eventually x) ?

I've seen some recommendations to plug in the host cable, then afterboot plug in the mouse / kb. This has not worked for me.

On a related note, has anyone tried to get an IR keyboard working with Zaurus? I have a universal Think Outside keyboard I'd like to use, which works very nicely in Sharp / Cacko romland. Is it something as simple as pumping the raw datas into dev/keyboard or something like that?

And finally, does the Zaurus support multiple consoles like other platforms? I wouldn't know the keystroke [CTRL + ALT + FN normally] to switch.

Thanks for all your help, I can't wait to dive into OpenBSD on the Zaurus, and with these few things, I'm getting a little bit closer. I can almost see the light at the end of the tunnel!

Sharp ROMs / Cacko 1.23 + Planex Gw-cf11x = ?
« on: October 15, 2008, 12:24:44 pm »
Okay, just got around to trying to get this to work. I'm running Qtopia 1.5.4, kernel 2.4.20 (Maslovsky compiled) and Cacko 1.23.1029311005, and I'm wondering what is up.

I have a Planex GW-CF11X card that I'm assuming is supposed to work under Cacko, but when I plug it in, it attempts to connect, and fails.

Here's the cardctl info for it:
product info: "PLANEX COMMUNICATIONS INC.", "PLANEX GW-CF11X Wireless CD Card", "", ""
manfid: 0xd601, 0x0010
function: 6 (network)

so I went poking around in the /etc/pcmcia folders, and everything that I've seen so far says to modify wlan-ng.conf, which I don't have. Has this been changed to hostap_cs.conf?

I believe this card is a prism, so I should be able to make a new entry for it in one of these confs, pointing to a prism_cs module? Or is this handled again by hostap_cs? Where would that module be then? /lib/modules/2.4.20/pcmcia ? or something like that?
