For Sale / Wanted / Selling A New Simpad
« on: July 08, 2005, 02:16:00 am »
Well, I bought two Simpads from that guy on Ebay, which I thought would be great for development purposes, one for stable use and one for development.
Unfortunately, I'm running a bit short on cash since I am not getting as many hours as I'd hoped at work, so I'm going to have to sell at least one so my wife doesn't kill me.

Is anyone on here looking to buy one?

This is brand new, in the box, SL4, I would put Opensimpad on it if you would like or leave CE on it.

The same ones that guy was selling on Ebay a bit back. I've not even opened the box since it came (since I got two, figured I'd keep the other one in good condition).

Anybody interested?

p.s. The reason I'm not posting this in the for sale is that it seems to be only for that so, or should I list this there?

SIMpad forum / Building My Own Image
« on: June 29, 2005, 01:43:12 am »
I've been trying to build my own image and I'm having issues.

Can anyone tell me what tag should I be using to check out OE from bitkeeper? Or does the version of Opensimpad in bitkeeper even work yet?

Or perhaps I should be asking, what method was used to build the 0.9.0rc1 images?

SIMpad forum / Uploading A New Image From Another Simpad
« on: June 24, 2005, 04:13:33 pm »
I don't see any reason why it wouldn't work, with the proper adapter (which shouldn't be too hard to find), but I was just wondering if anyone has ever used a simpad to flash another simpad?

See, I've got two of them, and I was thinking it might be interesting to use as a portable Simpad development station (not for compiling, I would do that via SSH on my home comp, then transfer it to the "dev simpad").

Anyway, just a crazy thought...

SIMpad forum / Smart Card Software
« on: June 23, 2005, 12:24:13 am »
Hey all, I was looking through the old forum for info about the smartcard reader, and somebody on there...Guylhem actually....said he had the sourcecode for a kernel module, I think..

Anyway, anybody know where I might find that source code? I'd like to play around with the cardreader.

I know I'll still have to make and/or find a userland program to handle it, but that's fine...

SIMpad forum / Battery Reporting 1/10th Actual Charge...
« on: June 19, 2005, 02:52:31 am »
Is it normal for the battery on my SimPad to not charge over 10 Percent? Because that's where it stops charging at....Any suggestions?

I just put OpenSimpad on it yesterday...

SIMpad forum / Pcmcia Usb Cards
« on: June 14, 2005, 05:40:11 am »
There are PCMCIA USB cards out there, some for as little as $30 I've seen.
The question is, will they work with the SimPad?

That'd be swell if they would

Then again, I suppose there aren't any USB drivers for OpenSimpad, though...

Sounds like it could be quite the project...

I think I'd be up for at least messing around with it if I end up buying a Simpad...

Angstrom & OpenZaurus / Strange screen rotation ...
« on: August 21, 2004, 12:39:32 am »
Okay, so I was just using my Zaurus...had set it aside, in the cradle, for a while...still on and in landscape rotation...I went to rotate it back and, much to my surprise, my screen was upside-down...

I tried just restarting opie...and it didn't fix the I restarted my zaurus, and it seems to be working fine now..

anybody know why this would happen?

I'm running OZ 3.3.5 on my SL-5500...
