Angstrom & OpenZaurus / Mail App Ni Oz/opie 3.5.4-rc-c3000
« on: November 24, 2005, 02:58:55 pm »
Hi all,

I've flashed the latest 3.5.4-RC of Opie/OZ, and I'm impressed overall by the result.

My (new) WiFi CF card (D-Link DCF660W) is recognized out of the box, it also works like a charm with WellenReiter (bundled with the ROM). Nice!

On the other hand, my Socket Rev G. Bluetooth CF card isn't recognized, but I've not done much to search that topic.

More concerning to me, I've stumbled on the (known) bug where creating a POP3 account in the mail application causes an error (problem creating the correct folders, it seems), so the mail application is totally useless for now.

Does anyone know what's the expected folder/file structure in the Mail application, so that I may create it manually and try to make the application work until it gets fixed?  (Yeah, I know, I should be trying to fix it myself, just too short of free time to do this right now...)

Angstrom & OpenZaurus / Gpe & Apm Issues On C3k
« on: November 24, 2005, 12:43:50 pm »
I've tried to flash my C3k with gpe-image-spitz-20051021200253.rootfs.tar.gz, and it does boot and start nicely.

I'm unable to suspend or switch off the Zaurus, though, the on/off button doesn't work, and issuing a "apm -s" command in the terminal result only in an error message (device busy or something like that, can't recall exactly, and I've reflashed Opie since...)

Did anyone else try GPE on a C3000 recently? It looks good, and promising, but if I can't turn it off it's a no go for me...

Sharp ROMs / Socket Bt Cf Card (rev G) & Cacko 3k (beta1)
« on: June 10, 2005, 04:32:34 pm »
Hi all,

I've just purchased (on eBay) a Socket Bluetooth CompactFlash card (rev G), and I'm trying to make it work on my SL-C3000 (with a Cacko 3000 beta 1 ROM).

First attempt didn't cause any major trouble (i.e. no crash), but although the card is recognized correctly as a "Socket Bluetooth Card v2.5" by the cardmon applet, I can't seem to make it work. I couldn't even get it to detect other bluetooth devices (like my BT phone), much less pair with one...

I've got zero experience with bluetooth in Linux (though I used it a lot with various other OSes and devices), so I don't know exactly how to get started... From the Cacko 3kb1 readme file, it seems that the Cacko 3kb1 ROM includes "Bluez Scripts from Cacko ROM & Bluez Dialup and PAN applets from Cacko ROM", whatever that means.  So instead of jumping on ELSI or Killefiz and installing the whole lot of bluez-related ipks, I investigated this forum first. I've found a very interesting thread about this particular card and the Cacko ROM (1.22 at the time the thread was written, more than one year ago), but before starting to hack myself and break everything, I thought I would ask here first:

iamasmith, did you include in 3kb1 all the fixes and hacks involved to make the Rev G version of this card work with the Cacko ROM on the 3000? Does anyone else here use this card with the Cacko 3kb1 ROM?

I tried to create a new "Bluetooth - PPP" entry, but I'm not quite sure about what I need to do to create a working entry: in the first (Account) tab, what is the "Phone" field meant to do?

Likewise, in the second tab (Modem), I tried various BT devices values (/dev/rfcomm0, /dev/ttyS3 or /dev/ttyS03, since the Rev G card appear to be handled as a serial card), but whenever I expand the "BT DUN" popup list, it's always empty, and the "Search" button on the bottom right returns immediately a "No devices with DUN profile found" dialog box, without even waiting for the 5 seconds default timeout.

I've checked that the card is correctly recognized by "cardctl ident", and "cardctl status" does report the card to be ready (i.e. not suspended) when I insert it, but this doesn't bring me much farther... (note that the card is suspended when I switch the 3000 off, and it remains suspended (until manually resumed) when I switch the 3000 on.

Does anyone have a suggestion about what I should try next? Any pointer (except the Bluez OESF howto (which states "This howto describes how to setup the BlueZ Bluetooth drivers on a Sharp 3.x ROM (or a ROM based on this), which has the 2.4.18 Linux Kernel.", which may not be applied "as is" to the 2.4.20 kernel used by the 3000...).

Thanks in advance for any help!

C1000/3x00 General discussions / Music Player V2.0 Update For Sl-c3000
« on: March 15, 2005, 03:41:40 pm »
Hi all,

There's a v2.0 update to the bundled music player application for the Zaurus SL-C3000. It's a Japanese version, but if you're willing to have a look you can get it here:

The playlist support is improved, you can sort your tunes by artist, album or genre, and you can probably get the player to display a picture when you listen to a tune (should be possible to get it to display the cover of the disc, for instance...), and probably a few other improvements as well (the website mentions WMP (Windows Media Player 10) support)

C1000/3x00 Hardware / Cf Card Type Serial Device Is Busy
« on: February 28, 2005, 05:34:00 am »
Hi all,

I've been spending some time recently trying to make my EagleTec GSM/GPRS CF card work on the SL-C3000 Zaurus, but it seems I'm stuck right now...

I've tried various solutions / hints and right now the card is correctly recognized by a "cardctl ident" command, I can talk to it using /dev/ttyS3 using minicom (it answers OK to my AT commands, I can dial a number, etc...

That being said, anytime I try to connect using the GUI, I get a nice "CF card type serial device is busy" error dialog from the Dialup application. I've noticed, in addition, that whenever I insert the card in the Zaurus, it remains suspended (LED doesn't blink) until I enter a "cardctl resume" command in the terminal. The strange thing is that it always return a "ioctl(): Device or resource busy" error message, but as soon as I resume the card, the LED start blinking nonetheless and I can communicate with the card using minicom.

I tried issuying a "cardctl suspend" before connecting using the GUI, but I got only a nice crash and had to remove the battery to reboot...

FWIW, dmesg reports, when I insert the CF card:
ttyS03 at port 0xf60003f8 (irq = 135) is a 16C950/954

I have installed the kernel and serial script from the docs at (as advised by the Ambicom Cf Gprs Card thread, with no luck.

I even tried a factory reset, and install only the same steyla kernel and serial script, still the same problem...

I suspect that it's pcmcia-related, but my limited knowledge didn't lead me to an obvious solution...

What surprise me is that it seems to work OK with minicom, despite the initial ioctl() error when awaking the card, but not with the rest...  

Thanks to anyone that can provide a hint/pointer/help...

C1000/3x00 General discussions / Sl-c3000 New (jp) Rom Released (v1.11)
« on: February 24, 2005, 01:34:21 pm »
Hi all,

Just been checking my RSS feed on, and guess what, there's a new ROM for the SL-C3000.

Here's the translation of the blog entry refered to by Mobile News, which mentions the new ROM update: (

ROM 1.11 17:45
where Version of the main body software of SL-C3000 goes up . (?)/root apparently without permission though it immediately downloads and the up-grade was done. /etc../hdd3.. ext3 because of its rewriting/rc.d/rc.rofilesys it fails in reactivation when turning. Rc.rofilesys is customized to the amateur because it is a method that cannot be recommended, and the turning ext3 person is attention though managed to be returned from the console by me who doesn't want to be unpleasant to return it to the state when shipping it, and to give it up anyway groping

I don't read Japanese, but from what I can understand with that automated translation, there's a problem with hdd3 filesystem (vfat vs. etx3), so the upgrade might not be perfectly smooth and error free, since the blog's author also wrote a second blog entry with a fix for the aforementioned problem: (

it return it based on /root/etc/rc.d/rc.rofilesys
The method by which SL-C3000 that introduces ROM 1.11 because it is special and did not start can be returned even if reflash is not done to the state of the factory shipment is written though it is personal, unpleasant, and opening to the public is shameful by a terrible, earthy way.

1) is downloaded, and it preserves it in CF or SD by the name of

2) The lid of the battery is opened, and the reset button is pushed.

3) It turns on power while pushing the OK key, and the fourth updates are selected.

4)Media that preserve are selected, and "It is. " to the question whether
to execute the update.

5) Because the prompt of ash appears, it inputs it as follows.

# mount /dev/mtdblock2 /mnt -o noatime
# cd /mnt/root/etc/rc.d
# cp -a rc.rofilesys rc.rofilesys.orig
# sed -e "s/-t vfat -o noatime,quiet,umask=000,iocharset=utf8/-t ext3 -o noatime/g" -e "s/-o size=1m/-o size=4m/g" rc.rofilesys.orig > rc.rofilesys
# cd /
# umount /mnt
# reboot
It came to start by this usually in my SL-C3000. The capacity of tmpfs that dynamically secures/tmp from a main memory is incidentally increased to 4MB.

The update requires a 32Mb SD or CF card, by the way, and the file you want to download, named "card_update_3000111.exe", is around 25Mb...

Here's the translation of what the ROM update brings to the user: (

< update content >
("1.01JP" content of renewal of →"1.11JP")

・ The WMA file of monaural was able to be reproduced.
・ Genre information can have been acquired from the file of the MP3 form and the WMA form. 
・ It did not try to have read the file in the main body disk at the timing of the pulling out opening of power supply Off/On and the card. 
・ The phenomenon that the last character of tag information on the MP3 file might not be displayed has been improved. 
・ "OK button (reproduction/temporary stop)" is effective in the state to shut the liquid crystal screen. 

5) "Movie Player" When it starts reproducing the animation of the multimedia dictionary while starting, the phenomenon that might fail has been improved.

6) The phenomenon the vertical line's entering the screen has been improved when hooking up to the Internet by the eo64 air.

7) The time-out error occurs in synchronize with Outlook when a lot of data is repeatedly included in the calendar of Zaurus, and the phenomenon that synchronize might be interrupted has been improved.

8) When synchronize is done with there 255 exception items or more that are scheduled to be regular in Outlook, the phenomenon that former regular schedule and 2 of the exception items are made for the schedule of the Zaurus side has been improved.

9) When the file name including ""%" + em-size character" existed, the phenomenon that failed in the data shift from the Zaurus of other SL series was improved.

10) "Main body disk" is improved on the screen ("CSV data reading. " etc.) where the file of the database software is selected and the phenomenon that the content of "Main body disk" is not displayed even if touching with the pen has been improved.

OK, last bit of "automatic" translation, the page describing the update procedure: (

Hi there,

Has any SL-C3000 owner managed to replace the Japanese Keyboard applet and the Japanese characters drawing applet by their English versions? If so, where did you get the files?

Thanks in advance for any answer/hint/help!
