Software / Dosbox And Scan Codes
« on: October 02, 2010, 03:57:18 am »

Running Cacko linux, it' very difficult to get the scan codes from the keyboard : Showkeys, or keydump (console utils) are not available.

I tried some mapper setting, but imho mapper.txt is ignored.

in Dosbox.conf :

mapperfile = mapper.txt

in this file i set change the key 1, from 96 to 97 but it didn't work.

Then i tried xbeyb : following key file fixed keys from 2 to 0 :

French keyboard layout. Codepages 850/858 (Euro).

  2 ! 1 #0 #0 #0
  3 " 2 #0 #0 !C2
  4 #35 3 #0 #0 #35
  5 $ 4 #0 #0 {
  6 % 5 #27 #0 [
  7 & 6 #31 #0 |
  8 ' 7 #0 #0 !C1
  9 ( 8 #28 #0 \
 10 ) 9 #0 #0 ^

 50 , ? #0 #0 #0
 51 ; . #0 #0 <
 52 : / #0 #0 >
 53 #33 õ #0 #0 #0
 86 < > #0 #0 #0

54  42  29  56  70  69  58  82

` a… eŠ i o• u— A· EÔ IÞ Oã Uë #32`

^ aƒ eˆ iŒ o“ u– A¶ EÒ I× Oâ Uê #32^
ù a„ e‰ i‹ o” u y˜ AŽ EÓ IØ O™ Uš #32ù


strangely the key ! 1 is silent now... M-m is wrong (key 50). I would need the scan codes for the entire keyboard

Any help would be appreciated,

$1 ~ /Network/ {
        $1 = $2 = ""
        Net = $0}

$0 ~ /WEP[\t :]+"No"/ {print Net}


to launch with :

awk -f <progam.awk> <>

After running kismet (use the .network log)

It will print only open networks.


Other problem  = VIDEO. Imho, to listen to a clip form Youtube with good sound quality, one should encode to 1/0,5 fps on zaurus sl-5600 with pxa250 cpu, because on this machine one have to choose between sound OR image. Both is not possible, even if separately it is possible, either good sound OR good fps. There is some flaw, other thant the cache problem. I tested the Watapon, which has a disabled cache feature kernel and despite applications run faster, video doesn't play better and the Zj tests doens't show a speed-up in performances....

I followed the wiki, even with 15 kB as mp3 my video is not good. So i wonder if 2 fps (Two) is playable, but i think not.

400 Mhz, cpu, i wonder what he is doing...

I have found a Tkc image in form of a SYST5600.DBK :

This is a NAND backup file for SL-5600 with Intel PXA250 CPU (DO NOT USE IT FOR 5600 with 255 CPU). It has basic tkc ROM to keep the file small


Since i was disappointed with Watapon, which doesn't make things faster, i wonder if this on does...

« on: June 16, 2009, 05:29:17 pm »

So i flashed Watapon on my zaurus sl-5600 with pxa250 cpu.

however, it's not faster than the standard SHARP Rom :

Bogomips are the same (397..)

ZJB reports, for Watapon and right, SHARP

int artimethic : 7,63          vs  7,68
doubl A           1,23          vs  1,2
infinite A         2,71          vs  3,6
Strings           3,47          vs  4,3
Draw              6,65          vs  8,4  
file IO             2,09          vs  9,0

because of the blue crystal them i switched back to the original sharp ROM

I tried to play a video in mplayer but it seem not going better as with Sharp's rom.

Never mind, the machine does all i need

Imagine the mistreatment you inflict to your little machine when you flash a new ROM. Would you like some one to flash you a new brain ? No i don't think so.  Foremost, if it a buggy one.

General Discussion / How To Encode For The Media Player ?
« on: May 29, 2009, 06:22:46 am »

All is in the title. Since there is a mediaplayer in the sharp OS, i want to try it out. I assume it's optimized. But i don't know how to encode for example a video from Youtube. The avi i created with WinFF didn't play at all. Wmv, anf flv are not accepted formats.

Thanks, L

Imho the way this forum displays posts is not good at all, since all threads are folded. This doesn't help if you look for a single information, like me this morning i want to get mplayer in fullscreen on sl-5600. BTW, i don't get it in descent bit rate, even in 160 x 120, 12 fps

Imagine reading and unfolding 1000 post just looking for a command line how mplayer get fullscreen  

And then the search engine returns too many results and not all relevant...

3) Is it possible to get the fast kernel one the sharp ROM ... ?

4) is there a DosBox ?

General Discussion / Ipkg Install Problem
« on: May 19, 2009, 11:15:37 am »

I read a lot about this error while installing an ipk :

ERROR zcat, and so on,

unexpected end of file,

while unpacking control.tar.gz for example.


This could be due to bad permissions set to the files inside the package, to corrupted package, to an old installer. Someone told to read the faq, but else than read it from begin to end, there is no obvious answer; what is the definitive answer to this ? i tried to change the permissions for the files inside the archive, no joy.

the package is the imagebrowser

My ROM is version 0.a8, sharp sl-5600

thanks, L

Until now i was not able to find my bash startup file. Can anyone help ?

# find / -name .profil* or *ash*

To enable tab completion in the root shell (wihc is sh, not bash) i launch a new bash shell once i'm in root. but i would like to set some aliases too.



General Discussion / Place To Start ?
« on: May 09, 2009, 03:54:36 pm »
Hi all,

I received my sharp zaurus 5600-sl today, with a linksys card, and qtopia. The ROM is version 0.a8.

I have read the faq so i now how to upgrade the ROM, but not where to find another qtopia version, for example... and also what happens to the old ROM when upgrade ?

I tried to connect, but.. the network is an open (not secured) hotspot, and when i go to "network", there is never a service available.

Tried also to install kismet but it seems for ROM version 3 ? and, it needs to be compiled, that is a thing i'm not used to. i have not even the compiler.

More, the filebrowser icon is there but the application is not installed... !

I really need some hints to start !

thanks all;
