make: *** [/mnt/hd/akita-rom/state/bootdisk.targetinstall] Error 1
when i check the rules/bootimage.make
it seems like i'm missing some parameters..


I manage to get, rootfs.img, kernel.img, u-boot.bin but i;m missing
emergenc.img and
I use the original beta4 emergenc.img and
The U-boot flashes ok.. but when i try to boot it up.. by holding ON and plug in the power and unhold ON.. it doesn't run emergency boot..

Any idea...?
I check but don't understand what the numbers about...


Zaurus - pdaXrom / How To Disable Auto Standby Using Script?
« on: November 15, 2005, 10:21:51 pm »
I've a bit of problem managing the power management in my Z..

I set auto standby on battery mode at 30 minutes..
But sometimes , i wanted to listen to mp3... and i want to temporarily disable the standby mode until i close the application or if the xmms is inactive (songs end)... for 3 minutes..
If i leave the auto standby on battery mode at 0 .. then i have to manually set the Z to standby when the songs finish which is very troublesome...

I use kino in sharp rom before... i work great..
But XMMS lack of this feature...

Is kino2 can be ported to pdaxrom?

Any idea... Thanx

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Opie-reader Version 0.7j
« on: November 04, 2005, 10:20:03 pm »
I've compiled the opie-reader version 0.7j.
The source code was send to me by Tim..

This is a great piece of software... simple and support lots of codecs..

Note: Please run opie-reader instead of uqtreader..

This is because the reader require READERDIR environment... so the opie-reader is just a simple script...

FLite codec is not enable yet... since i haven't compile the flite on pdaxrom..

Feel Free to try the software... and share your comments...

*EDIT: I've updated the package with libHTMLfilter and some libraries that i miss out previously (updated on 17/11/2005)

Zaurus - pdaXrom / [need Help] Dosbox Cvs Compilation...
« on: October 24, 2005, 09:26:36 pm »
Can someone look at how to patch the SDL part... SDL overlay using BVDD doesn't seem to work..

The cross compilation works fine... on my desktop...
Dosbox runs fine after compilation... version 0.63 some have problem... but the cvs work fine..

It runs pretty decently when i disable the sound... and SDL overlay... doesn't seem to work...
If someone can fix the SDL overlay and patch the sound... i think we can make recent dosbox to run decently..

Attached is a zip file of the dosbox cvs checkout...

You need to run ./ from your desktop to generate the appropriate files...

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Pdaxrom-builder Rules Update Idea
« on: October 14, 2005, 12:10:37 am »
I've been playing with the pdaxrom-builder this few days..
The pdaxrom-builder works pretty well...
I've notice that some of the make file in the rules-ipkg are not up to date...
eg.. gtk+ now is already 2.8.6 but in the rules-ipkg, its still using 2.6.

The rules-ipkg make files will grow in the future and we should look into automatic update system. Probably something like gentoo.. would be great...

We should contribute to pdaxrom builder.. so that everyone can have its own customize pdaxrom.. just like my desktop running gentoo... emerge sync.. emerge world...
That will be awesome..

Idea, anyone...
