6000 - Tosa / Battery Source Needed
« on: January 11, 2008, 06:32:13 pm »
I have just rediscovered how great my Tosa is (after i "dropped" my treo 700w hard against the ground), but the battery is fairly tired.  I have looked through the forums and the sources that are mentioned seem to have dried up.  Anyone know were I can pick up a battery or two?  I would even be willing to buy a sled if it had a good battery.


Zaurus - pdaXrom / General Status For The 6000
« on: February 14, 2007, 07:03:20 pm »
So i have been off my zaurus for about 8 months.  I ran off and had to use a treo 700w at work.  The treo is only about 60% functional though and now that im moving on to a new project I want to give my 6000 another try as mobile tool.  

Currently im running the sharp rom with a custom kernel and some thekompany apps.  But I have a very large desire to get back to pdaxrom, or maybe OZ.  I have been reading through months of posts and it seems that pdxrom is still kicking and moving forward on the clamshells but i dont see any new releases for the tosa.  Is that correct, or am I just missing something obvious?

For Sale / Wanted / Looking For 6000 Sled
« on: February 14, 2007, 02:29:48 am »
The usual places seem to no longer have the sled for my 6000 listed.  I knew I should have picked one up before.  Does anyone know where these can still be found?


Zaurus - pdaXrom / Using My Z Like A Thumb Drive
« on: April 29, 2006, 04:14:02 pm »
If i understand right, in the settings tab i have usb icon and in that applet i have the options ( i think) to mount my cf or sd card as a thumb drive when i plug my 6000 into a usb port on my computer.  I have tried this both with the "usb host cable" and the dock without luck.  Am I thinking about this correct?  does this work for others?


Zaurus - pdaXrom / Minicom And Other Stuff
« on: March 06, 2006, 05:27:06 pm »
Ok i had to flash back to the sharp rom casue i could not get minicom to work right with my hp switches.  But i want to get back to pdaxrom as soon as possible.  Has anyone out there gotten minicom to work with a serail cable (not usb to serial)?

Also just some observations.  First i really love pdaxrom and i consider it my "home" on my zaurus and i know that the 6000 i have is in the minority.  That being said i discovered that i miss a few things about the sharp rom. I miss syncing with evolution (not really with the sharp apps but with the the kompany apps).  Please dont throw stones but i just dont like kopi on my desktop.  I also miss alarms that go off even if the pim is not open.  I want to thank everyone for the work that was done to get kopi to wake up the Z and run an alarm.  This is a huge step and was the main reason i could start using pdaxrom daily.  But having to keep kopi running and watching to make sure it didnt crash every time i use the Z gets time consuming.  I miss zplayer.  I see a python mplayer frontend here in the forums that will soon be on my z so maybe i wont miss this one anymore.  Finally i miss netfront.  I have (thanks to people in #cacko and oe forums ) found links with graphics that seems to fill this void but it might take a while.

Again please dont consider this a down on pdaxrom, its the finest rom out for my 6000 and I love it.  This is just meant to be helpful feed back, and maybe a cry for help to fill these voids.


Zaurus - pdaXrom / Mplayer And My 6000l
« on: February 27, 2006, 12:07:15 am »
Ok so most of my office is running fairly new axims.  And this last week or two they have been boasting the merits of the windows handheld.  My 6000l makes a good showing in almost everything and beats out the axim in some places.  But in the area of video playback I am just coming up short and im convinced its user error.  I have read tons of threads about encoding video, and Im sure i have a good handle on it.  But picking out a version of mplayer and the command line switches i need to get the best playback just seem to elude me.  So before we have our next staff meeting i thought i would turn to the fine people here in this forum to help sort out the best setup for my 6000l.    


Zaurus - pdaXrom / Two Missing Features
« on: February 16, 2006, 04:44:59 pm »
I guess the title of the thread may be wrong.  I dont really think these are missing features they are just things i need to interact with my axim carrying windows using coworkers on the next job.

I am forced to use evolution and exchange for about a month and a half.  RIght now I use kopi and Im happy with it.  Its a little slow to start up but it runs well while its on.  I would be willing to switch for awhile to a different calendar app for a while as long as it could sysnc with evolution but i would prefer to do it with kopi.

The second "feature" i need is a voice recorder that records in wav or mp3.  Im going to have to turn in digital voice notes.

I can get both of these things working fairly well in the default sharp rom with some of the theKompany app i bought before i fell in love with pdaxrom (and i can use the rec button on my 6000) but if I can get it done with this rom it would be great.

I have googled to try and find a way to do these things myself, and i did find some command line debian packages that mostly worked for the recoder but I  could not tell what formats it was using and I could not get it to play on my desktops (ubuntu, or gentoo).  I could not find any info on syncing kopi with evolution.

As always everyone here does a great job! Thanks for any input.

Zaurus - pdaXrom / 6000 Vs 3100
« on: January 04, 2006, 10:23:51 pm »
So I have been fairly happy with my 6000l.  It seems fast, and with a gig sd card I seem to have room to install most of the apps I would need.  My main complaint is its big and I find myself wanting to have both my 512mb cf card and my belkin bluetooth card in at the same time.  So here is my question:  Im thinking hard about buying a sled for my 6000l to solve the need for the 2 cf slots, but it will add to the size and the sleds that i see are $200+ and im thinking that I might just want to upgrade to the 3100.  Since the 3100 has a 4 gig drive/ a cf slot/ and sd slot I think it has enough room for my media, and bluetooth card.  If i read the specs right though it does not have internal wifi like the 6000l.  Internet access is very important to my work so accessing email and the web is a primary function.  Kdepimpi is also very important.  I was hoping some of the people i seen in this forum who have both a 6000l and 3100 can share some comments on using both units.


oh and yes either unit must run pdaxrom casue it rocks


Zaurus - pdaXrom / Rc12 0n The 6000l
« on: October 28, 2005, 11:38:29 am »
Started this thread because I didnt see one yet for the new RC.  I have downloaded RC 12 and checked the md5sum.  The flash goes fine.  When i try to fire up the zaurus the yellow charging light goes off and the unit acts dead.  A reset gives me back the charging light.  I can restore my old nand image and it works fine.  

I flashed just like I did with rc11 which works great.  

Any ideas?

-edit thanks to laze and others- new image fixed the problem.  My Z is working again.-

For Sale / Wanted / Looking For A Sled For My 6000

I have been ebaying, googling, for days and I cant seem to find one anywhere.  Does anyone know where I can pick up a new or used sled?


6000 - Tosa / Screen Noise
« on: May 08, 2005, 02:49:55 pm »
When ever i run an app in magnified mode (like opie programs) i get a high pitched buzz.  Everything wokrs, and it has done it from day one.  I tried reflashing, thinking that it might help but it did not.  I am using the stock sharp rom, but i have tried the gpe rom and it had no trouble but I didnt see a way to change an apps resolution in it.  

Any ideas?
