« on: July 04, 2008, 09:38:56 am »
If anyone is intrested I've a Nvidia video card with broken processor which has 4 samsung ram chips which look similar to the ones Z uses.

The chips are:

I'm not sure if they are actually good for the Z ram expansion mod but if they are I'm willing to donate them.
PM me or drop me an email if you are interested.

N.B.: They need to be desoldered from Video Card PCB

Asus Eee PC / Sources
« on: May 25, 2008, 03:48:14 pm »
I've been trying to download the full sources made avalible from ASUS .... it's been a no go
The best I can manage is get about 1Gb (of the 1.7Gb) and then the download freezes.

Anyone got a working link to the full sources used for eeepc ?

Asus Eee PC / Trouble With 8gb Sdhc Card
« on: May 24, 2008, 01:09:49 pm »
Anyone else experiencing problems with SDHC cards ?

I'm getting file system corruption when I shutdown system running on the SDHC card.
So far I've been able to fixit by running fsck -y from xandros on SSD.

Anyone had similar problems or know hot to work around the problem ?

Asus Eee PC / Standard Multiuser With Xandros
« on: May 11, 2008, 11:35:06 am »
ok since I cannot get all that I need working ither with slax6 nor with standard slackware 12.1 ....
anyone know how to get standard multiuser working on xandros ?

I mean something like real KDM login (with different profiles for different users) or even better text login and manual startx to get grafix ?

Something possibly looking like a more normal init that what's documented here:

Asus Eee PC / Building Your Own Custom Kernel
« on: May 09, 2008, 02:59:36 am »
Ok I think I'll haveto start over again ... let me reedit the whole thing:

The eeepc user forum and wiki only treats customizing kernel with same bersion and same build environment (yes using modules built with different compiler than what was used on kernel will most likely make them unusable) ... so here I am trying to put up some info on how to put up a generic vanilla kernel on eeepc.

So how should one configure the kernel ?
I have found out by experience that taking your .config across kernel  releases might work but may lead to problems.
So I allways start out with a make mrproper and configure it from scratch ... this is a long and tedious process ... YES
Take the /boot/config- as a guide and enable and disable features you need.
You can safely disable the asus-laptop because it just will not work.
I aslo enabled a few more usb devices and had usb-storage built into kernel (for booting of the SD).
Do not use the ath5k kernel driver because it jus won't work yet with the atheros device in the eeepc .... instead use this
wifi driver which is also part of the madwifi project.

The atheros LAN device is not yet supported in the kernel so use this LAN driver to get the atl2 worling. If you are building with a kernel version diffrent to what the target will be you will haveto make some minor changes to the makefile.

I've managed to get the wifi led turn on and off with a   third party asus_acpi module source and a patch .... but it fails to actually turn on the wifi device .... I'll update on this as soon as I find a solution.

Asus Eee PC / How Do I Turn On Wifi
« on: May 08, 2008, 05:10:08 pm »
On the original distro pressing "Fn + F2" key combination toggles the wifi card from on to off.

Anyone know how to manage that on a generic, non eeePC tuned, distribution ?
I'd be even happy to run a command (or script to turn it on) but do not want to leave it allways on from bios (to save pattery life when unused).

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Tomtom
« on: May 03, 2008, 06:34:10 am »
I just installed TTconsole on my tomtom ONE XL ... it's linux inside.

I wonder if it's worth while having a section in the "Model Specific Forums" ?

Debian / C1k And Sd/mmc Trouble
« on: May 01, 2008, 06:55:39 am »
I've booted up debian from CF on my c1k ... but I'm unable to use any SD/MMC cards in the Z slot once up and running.
What needs to be done to have it working ?

Debian / Zd1211 Firmware
« on: May 01, 2008, 06:43:14 am »
The zd1211 usb wifi card need firmware to finction properly.
need to place some files in /lib/firmware to get it going.

Once you plug in the card you need to do ifconfig <dev> up to have the firmware uploaded to the device.

If anyone is intrested here are the files tarballed.

Debian / Usb Power Issues
« on: May 01, 2008, 06:35:58 am »
Although I've made hardware changes to my C1k (to be able to power upto 500mA to the usb port and I've terted it with pdaxrom to be effective) debian is refusing to power up wireless device dew to excessive power consumtion (probabbly calculated on USB OTG power sepecifications).

Anyone know how to correct the behaviour fo my 500mA capable hardware ?

Foud this workaroud:
which is not that straightforwars to apply:
I mean lsusb shows bus address to be 1 and not 1-2.
Althought dmesg shows some messages about 1-2 ... I find it difficult to correlete what lsusb shows and the content of the /sys/bus/usb subtree.
lsusb shows bus 1 and device 8 ... I guess that bus1:1 becomes 1-1 and 1:8 becomes 1-2 a bit like scsi devices ?
anyway with some doubts whether it's the right thing to di I dot the zd1211 to power up correctly.

Anyway I would still prefer instrucnting that my hardware supports normal USB 500mA specification.

Debian / Debian Newby Help
« on: April 26, 2008, 05:38:44 am »
I've tryed quite a few roms on my Z's starting fron sharp original, Cacko, OE and pdaXrom.

Although pdaXrom is the on that so far I've used most happly I find it on the whole far from satisfactory.

I've spoken to a few happy Z debian users and adding it to my limited x86 debian experience (but very simple with apt) I've decided to give it a try.
I'd like to try it on my C1000.

I found this debian Z rootfs :
would this be a good starting point ?

Does that rootfs also contain the kernel to be used ? ... if not where do I get a stable and uptodate kernel ?

Without making drastic changes to the current installation on my C1000 can I use u-boot to boot whatever kernel must be used without having to recompile it ? ... or is it necessary to use the original sharp boot loader ?

My idea would be to put the rootfs on SD and use  u-boot to load kernel from flash and mount root from SD.

If u-boot is a no go without recompiling kernel where can I get a good kexec working alternative ?

I've been away for a month or so ... I see is out on ... any news for Z ?

pdaXrom Development / Apm On Current Kernel
« on: August 31, 2007, 04:08:27 am »
I'm not sure if this is also the the case on 2.6.21 or 2.6.22 kernels but this is what I discovered while on vacation:

When the power button is pressed for a suspend/resume apm script is not executed so all the stuff in /etc/apm is ignored in such cases (I think the whole suspend/resume affair is handled by the kernel directly when the power button is pressed) .... different story when "apm --suspend" is called.
It would be nice to be able to make the Z still do something upon suspend/resome.

The power saving stuff that should take place when the external power is or is not present is handled totally by by the python sript ... and pnly works inside X since ti is the window manager that regularly executes the script . Amsolutely nothing happens when the external power status changes if you are not running X.
Presonally I think this is not a good way to appproach the problem: I would prefer having a daemon monitoring /proc/apm and react by calling a shell script tnat can then be easily modified (by anyone even without python knowlege) to make custom actions (like the acpi daemon does for standard x86 linux).  

I already have a script that does more or less the same sort of things that does (exept modify the config file for the moment). The problem is that the window manager has hard coded in it ... should  we make a plan to change this ?

P.S. :I think that the script has a bug in the way that dpms features are used when suspend is inhibited (it turns off alltogether dpms ... but then standby dpms features might not behave exactly as wanted).
