Zaurus - pdaXrom / Zaurus Cannot Boot Anymore
« on: August 06, 2007, 03:18:55 pm »
I didn't do anything out of the ordinary only tried to reboot the unit by removing the battery because the unit froze-up (for the millionth time-- I've complained about this before). Anyway, now during the boot-up sequence it seems to freeze at:

Code: [Select]
Starting switchevd:                      [  OK  ]However, it's not really frozen because I eventually get an error message:

Code: [Select]
INIT: Id "ln" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutesThen it occurs again in 5 minutes and so on.

Previous to the switchevd message I get another error message:

Code: [Select]
Starting sshd:PRNG is not seeded         [FAILED]Does this have to do with the problem?

I'd just re-flash the ROM (v197); however, I don't want to lose any data. Is there a way I can at least back-up the data before I have to re-flash?

Thanks.

Zaurus - pdaXrom / What Is The New Version?
« on: April 09, 2007, 10:43:45 am »
A fews ago I asked if the new version would be released. I was told it would be released in one week; however, it's now been like three weeks and there doesn't seem to be a new release. But I'm seeing talk of ii13, r189, r196, what are these? Are these the releases that were promised or something else?

« on: March 19, 2007, 02:38:11 pm »
Can someone provide news of the update from r121 to the newest version? I'm desperate to change this incredibly broken version of pdaxrom (r121) to anything else!!!

Thanks.

Hey there, I'm going to England (from NA) and I want to keep my Zaurus charged. Any suggestions on charging effectively (and affordably)? Thanks.

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Beta2?
« on: May 16, 2006, 10:54:01 pm »
I noticed on the pdaxrom website it says there is a beta2 rom, but the link is broken. The beta2 changelog mentions that there is a new sd/mmc driver. Does this driver fix the 2gig sd card problem? Thanks.

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Using My Z To Stream Music
« on: January 05, 2006, 09:50:38 pm »
I see these wireless streaming media devices and wonder why the Zaurus can't do the same thing:

http://www.rokulabs.com/products/soundbridge/index.php

http://www.slimdevices.com/

I use gnump3d at home to connect to my music collect from work. It works great since I all I need is a web browser and a media player (in my case it's Winamp). Now, since my Zaurus has a web browser (Firefox, dillo etc.) and a media player (xmms) it should work, but it doesn't. I get this error in xmms:

Server said: http/1.0 200 OK

I don't know what it means. Any ideas? I don't really want to fork-out $400 more dollars if the Zaurus can do it.

Thanks.

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Kapi In Rc11
« on: September 22, 2005, 12:37:16 pm »
What happened to Kapi in the new RC11 feed? There is only Kopi.

Or is dlume just better? If it is, I'll use it. But how can I import all my Kapi contacts into dlume?

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Xmms Freeze
« on: May 21, 2005, 12:42:38 pm »
I'm having problems with xmms freezing-up after I shut off my Zaurus while xmms is still playing. Does anyone else have this problem? How can I counter it?

I'm using RC10. (had the problem in RC9 too)

thanks.

Software / Flash Card Program (not Cf)
« on: February 27, 2005, 07:59:59 pm »
Does anyone know of any Zaurus software that does flash cards? I'm trying to memorize musical notes and it would help a lot!

It's hard to search for this thing because searching for "flash card" yields: compactFLASH CARD. So it's better to ask.

I might be able to use gqview or some other image viewer and set the slideshow to random & loop... but I haven't tried it yet.

thanx,

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Dosbox Tweaks
« on: January 14, 2005, 12:55:09 pm »
I'm having problems with the performance (especially the sound) in Dosbox. I noticed here that someone has a dosbox.conf file that helps Dosbox run more smoothly, but it seems that it is not available any more. Does anyone have this? Or any other tweaks that may help with Dosbox?

Also, does someone have the custom-tailored version of Dosbox that is mentioned in the above post available too?

Thanks.

dq

edit: oh yeah, do you think if the kernel ran alsa instead of oss the sound performance would be better in Dosbox (and in general)?

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Ka/pi Or Some Other Address Program
« on: January 13, 2005, 07:28:08 pm »
First of all, I installed ka/pi from some feed when I first installed pdaxrom, but now I cannot find a feed with this in it. Can someone help?

Also, I never really got to use ka/pi for very long because it stopped working for some unknown reason so I don't know if I'll like it or not. But are there other address book programs out there that I could try if I don't get ka/pi to work? Please post recommendations.

thanks.

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Backgammon
« on: January 06, 2005, 10:16:40 pm »
Hi, I just installed "Kathrin" (before I had 1.0.5 very briefly and Cacko before that), and I'd like to install a backgammon game. Does anyone have a working copy? And where can I get it?

I found one, but it didn't work and I hope that there is another one other than the one that was for Cacko. That one sucked! I won every time I played it! I'm not *that* good of a backgammon player!

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

thanks.

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Problems Crosscompiling Imagemagick
« on: January 02, 2005, 12:51:41 am »
Here's the error message I get when trying to cross compile ImageMagick:
Code: [Select]
/usr/lib/gcc-lib/i686-pc-linux-gnu/3.3.4/../../../../i686-pc-linux-gnu/bin/ld: skipping incompatible /opt/arm/3.3.2/armv5tel-cacko-linux/X11R6/lib/libX11.so when searching for -lX11
/usr/lib/gcc-lib/i686-pc-linux-gnu/3.3.4/../../../../i686-pc-linux-gnu/bin/ld: cannot find -lX11
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[1]: *** [magick/libMagick.la] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/dq/archives/zaurus/ImageMagick-6.1.6'
make: *** [all] Error 2

I'm new at this cross compiling thing but I think I followed the instructions given on the pdaxrom site correctly. I'm not even sure what other info you need in order to help troubleshoot. I will say that I'm running Gentoo on my main machine and 1.0.5 on my Zaurus, but the latter shouldn't matter at this stage should it? (that last sentence is kinda poetic...)

thanks in advance.

General Discussion / Rom Treatise
« on: December 17, 2004, 12:50:38 pm »
Currently, my C760 has Cacko on it but I'm having difficulty streaming some mp3s and trying to build programs for it so I'm thinking of switching to a different ROM.

I can't find anything in the FAQ about the different types of ROMs. I've been to the corresponding ROM sites (OpenZaurus, pdaxrom etc.) but I cannot find any comparison matrix. It would be great if someone could explain to me the differences and pros/cons of each ROM much like what distrowatch.com offers.  

Maybe this is asking for too much? I did search the forums and I found a little information, but not enough to make up my mind on which ROM I want. Anyway I hope someone can help me (and others) out. I'd really appreciate it!

Thanks!
