Ubuntu / Help Installing Zubuntu 2.0 On Sl-c3200
« on: September 27, 2009, 02:34:44 pm »
I was able to get Zubuntu running from my SD card. Two problems so far:

1) A lot of key bouncing, meaning duplicate characters. Can I adjust this?
2) I can't get a wlan card to work with dhcp. I am trying my Linksys 802.11b cf card (WCF12) working. Flashing lights, but no networks in wicd and no IP address. I tried editing /etc/network/interfaces and adding my gateway and essid. I have fooled with ifconfig and iwconfig, but no joy. I tried setting wicd to use wlan0 and wifi0 both of which show via dmesg. I also found the post about changing permissions on dhcp in /etc/password to '0'. Cortez said it was verified as working so I must be missing something.

Any ideas.

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Supported Usb Lan Dongle
« on: March 25, 2007, 07:35:10 am »
Can anyone recommend an inexpensive USB LAN adapter that will work with pdaXrom/ii13? I want one that is supported in both the 2.4 and 2.6 versions. Smarter folks that I have tried to get the driver for my DM9601-based adapter working with no luck. I thought with the manufacturer providing linux drivers it would be easier, but obviously not. I would like to get a working USB LAN adapter before my next trip. Thanks.

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Setting Up A Usb Nic
« on: March 10, 2007, 05:46:31 pm »
Meanie was good enought to compile the driver for my DM9601 based USB NIC. I have not set one up before. I imagine that I need to copy the driver to the appropriate location, then I think I need to add an entry to the file that lists all the NIC types to tell it to use my dm9601.0 driver for that type of nic. Help.

In an effort to get us back to discussion, I have created a new forum with similar structure at:

Don't want to start a food fight and not interested in competition, just tired of no discussion and no updates. You can also check out the discussion at Antikx site at:

Have a good weekend.

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Pdaxii13 5.3 Ans Usb Keyboard
« on: February 19, 2007, 08:08:46 pm »
Just like the scroll mouse, I know my Fellowes USB stowaway keyboard was working. Before I just plugged it in. I tried the USB Keyboard app under system settings and it doesn't seem to do anything. Is there any way tomake it work?

** Hello, anyone? Do you know how to make the USB keyboard work?

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Xfce Under Pdaxii13 5.3 Anyone?
« on: February 19, 2007, 07:32:16 am »
Looks like IceWM takes a bit too much tweaking. I tried running startxfce and actually got xfce running, but it was rotated and out of whack. If you are running xfce with pdaXii13, I would appreciate your sharing your configuration and what is working/not working. Thanks.

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Pdaxii13 5.3 - Usb Mouse Scroll Wheel?
« on: February 18, 2007, 11:50:42 am »
I thought that this was working previously. Maybe I am thinking of another version/distro. I am trying to get my Z set up as my traveling machine and this would be helpful.

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Pdaxii13 5.3 - No Right Click/tap
« on: February 18, 2007, 11:06:39 am »
I can't seem to right out how to right click/tap with the stylus. i thought that I held the alt key (the one to the right of the Ctrl key) and tapped and that gave me a right click. However, no joy. I have restarted X and rebooted, but still no joy. When I plug in my USB mouse, right click works. Any ideas?

Accessories / Video Scan Device
« on: February 11, 2007, 10:15:43 am »
I am wondering if some posts/threads were lost in the recent upgrades. I was pretty sure that within the last few weeks we discussed a device that laid over the screen and scanned the screen to TV. I think it was intended for PS2 or Nintendo. Seems like Antikx was in on the discussion. I have searched with every combination I can think of and looked through the folders, but no go. If it is still here and someone would provide a link, I would appreciate it. Thanks.

Zaurus - pdaXrom / X11vnc Gui W/ Pdaxii13 5.2
« on: January 20, 2007, 10:47:27 am »
I can run x11vnc from the command line and it works. When I use the x11vnc control gui and select start x11vnc, a terminal window labeled passwd pops up and then nothing, I can't connect. I assume that I need to do some configuration somewhere. How? Thanks.

Off Topic forum / Did Anyone Else Lose Money To Bitpass?
« on: January 20, 2007, 10:07:26 am »
I got an email from them saying they were going out of business and that I had a week to make purchases and clean out my account. When I signed I found that last month they charged an "account maintenance fee" that cleaned out my account. Looks like a sinking ship taking all they can get. Anyone else get similarly stuck?

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Pdaxii13 And Nfs
« on: January 15, 2007, 09:00:02 pm »
The only NFS package I found in the default feed was nfs-utils. I installed it, but still can't connect to an nfs share. I used the same fstab line as is working in my other boxes, but when I issue mount -a, it hangs forever. No errors, but no drive mapping either. Do I need another package or is this one not working? Thanks.

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Udav Support In Pdaxrom?
« on: January 06, 2007, 01:12:00 pm »
I picked up a usb nic. When plugged in to the usb host, lsusb says:

oa46:9601 Davicom Semiconductor, Inc.

A little research says that this is a Davicom DM9601 device and is supported on the Z with OpenBSD using the udav driver. Is there a way to get udav support into pdaXrom? I looked in the file listing from the community page and didn't see anything. I have done some googling, but can't find any references other than openbsd. I probably should have done more research before I bought. Any assistance is appreciated.

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Gpe-contacts + Import = Seg Fault
« on: January 02, 2007, 09:37:18 pm »
Like the subject says, I have installed gpe-contacts (and calendar, etc) and gotten it to run. However, when I tap the Import button, it seg faults and crashes. Is there a fix?
