Angstrom & OpenZaurus / Usb Mouse?
« on: July 18, 2006, 05:04:13 pm »
It works in kernel. Works with GPM. Doesnt work in X server. From my kdrive code analysis it looks that if the touchscreen #ifdef is enabled the touchscreen code completely obscures underlying mouse driver.

Does anyone know if it was fixed in newer kdrive? Mouse works just fine in pdaXrom X server. What X server do they use?

What do you guys think about it?
It seems to support Intel Bulverde, TI OMAP and Motorola MX2

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Hdd Based Pdaxrom For C3100?
« on: April 04, 2006, 06:47:11 pm »
I can see that pdaXrom for C3000 uses the HDD for rootfs. New OZ for C3x00 series also is HDD based. I really dont like the idea of /var/log on flash file system or /tmp being in precious memory. I think it would be great if pdaXrom always installed to HDD on C3x00 series.

Is it possible to instal C3000 pdaXrom on C3100 without changes?

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Mp3 Player?
« on: April 04, 2006, 06:35:50 pm »
I know there are many.
But what I really need is something simple, with full screen uncluttered interface so I could use fingers to control the playback and volume.

Is there anything in the feeds? Or is there a player that would fit the description so I could compile it?

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Ufraw 0.7, Htop 0.6, Gtk-engines-thinice
« on: March 24, 2006, 02:37:58 am »
Hi guys.

I managed to compile couple more things.
gtk-engines-thinice - My favourite GTK2 theme. Small widgets good for 640x480 screen. (Actually I use it on my 1920x1200 desktop as well)

htop - sexy process viewer/manager, replacement for top

lcms - little color management system


ufraw 0.7 (uses lcms). ufraw is raw conversion utility for images from digital cameras. I had to modify the main dialog layout to almost fit into 640x480 screen. It loads and converts images from my Pentax dSLR just fine. It takes A LONG TIME to convert the image, like couple minutes. This should be useful for previewing images on trips or so. Take SD card from the camera, put in Zaurus and play!


Zaurus - pdaXrom / Emelfm2 0.1.6 And Crosscompiling Questions
« on: March 16, 2006, 02:23:02 am »
Cross compiling is fun!
I wanted to learn how to cross compile stuff.
I downloaded cross sdk.
And this is my first try. emelFM2 - simple GTK file manager. It only requires GTK2. I installed it and it works! Yay!
If anyone is interested please try it. (attached)
Next step is to try some packages dependant on other libraries.
How do I compile multiple libraries and dependency chains? Should I install compiled libs and headers into /opt/cross/arm or somewhere and maintain a little tree there? Or do I need to use pdaxrom build system for that? Inquiring minds need to know!

Now I shall troll freshmeat to see what useful app should I compile next!  

Zaurus - pdaXrom / N00b Checking In
« on: December 04, 2005, 05:35:53 pm »
Hi everyone,
I just received my C3100 on Friday. It was running Cacko 1.23. Long time ago I had SL-5500 and I was less than thrilled with eithe Sharp rom or OZ/Opie. I wanted something that runs real X11 and real apps. I installed RC12 yesterday and it is great! I have real apps running on real X11, aterm, gaim, dillo! Thank you everyone working on pdaXrom!

Of course I have some gripes:

I installed wpa_supplicant and hostap drivers, used conf file from my laptop and it works with my network at home. On monday I will test on 802.11x authenticated network at work. But I wish it was easier to integrate wpa_supplicant. More and more networks have advanced encryption and authentication methods and a tool like wpa_supplicant will be very important to have on a mobile device like Zaurus. Easiest and simplest solution would be startup script in init.d and keep wpa_supplicant running all the time. Better solution would be it start and stop wpa_supplicant from pcmcia or hotplug or network config scripts.

swap file
I have repartitioned my internal 4GB hdd into 4000MB ext2 hda1 and 96mb swap hda2.
I wish pdaXrom had either a config file for swap partition/files or recognized swap partitions automagically. For now I think I will just add it to init.d and startup scrips.

gaim (and potentially other programs)
It is not really a pdaXrom problem, but maybe someone can advise.
The damn thing has some huge configuration dialog windows that do not fit on screen. Since matchbox tries to keep the title bar visible there is no way to see the bottom of the config dialogs. Any ideas how to solve it? Maybe gtk theme with smaller controls will help?
