Angstrom dev don't like their users asking questions in this forum
Where did you get an idea like that?

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Kde 3.5

The ipks are here: (You need a few of them -- kdebase, kdelibs, ... I'm not sure how many you need -- It's probably posted earlier in this thread).

All links to the squashfs seem to be broken, so if you want that (which it seems you do) you'll have to beg adf.

Right you are -- see here:;hl=ShiroiKuma

(pgas compiled it and ShiroiKuma made a squashfs).

No one has successfully built QT4 for pdaXrom as far as I know -- it requires updated glibc/gcc I think. Someone tried to get it going and even compiled an updated glibc/gcc and posted the ipks -- so you should search for that first. However, I don't think they made it all the way to a working QT4.

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Wpa, Hostap And Ambicom Wl1100c Problems

What about trying wifi0 instead of wlan0? (Or even eth0...but that probably won't work).

Also, the beta 3 feed didn't disappear -- it's still here: Unless you meant some other beta 3 feed, of course...?

Debian / Openoffice

Capn_Fish makes a good point -- I have run OOo over ssh on my C3200 at reasonable speeds (but you are tethered in the sense that you MUST be near a WiFi hotspot with a GOOD signal -- or use an ethernet card or something I guess...).

Debian / Openoffice

As in pdaXrom, I would assume that OpenOffice is a massive waste of time. It runs so incredibly slowly for me on pdaXrom that it would be faster to find another computer and use it.

I would stick with AbiWord/Gnumeric if I were you (but I'm not you, so if you really want to try, go ahead...just know that it will be horrendously slow). In my experience, OpenOffice is slow enough on a desktop PC let alone on an embedded device (It runs sufficiently well on my dual core AMD 4400+ processor with 2 Gb of RAM, but on my older computers it takes copious amounts of time starting up).

Off Topic forum / Ipod Touch Vs. Nokia N800

I think each SD slot is defined for a maximum of 8 Gb each (using SDHC cards), so you can get the same amount, not more (ie 2 SDHC slots = 16 Gb maximum). But still a better buy in my opinion.

Off Topic forum / Ipod Touch Vs. Nokia N800

The iPod Touch is hackable only in the sense that you have to be a really good hacker to do anything. It's like a Palm -- you can hack, but tools for hacking are NOT provided (but unlike a Palm you can't install anything else...).

The iPod Touch is basically a fancy iPod with a web browser and MUCH less storage space. Yay. You can't add calendar entries unless you do it from a computer. Yay. You can't install anything else without much hacking (which has to be redone every time Apple releases a firmware 'upgrade' unless you want to stick with the old firmware). Yay.

N800 for sure. You can actually, you know do stuff with that. Unlike the iPod Touch, which is a fancy media player.

Off Topic forum / Power Supply Issue

It is my opinion that ANY electronics that do much of anything should be on a surge protector. I have seen televisions that develop crazy weird magnetic defects that make it look tie-die because they weren't on surge protectors. The same kind of thing would be true for computers -- one surge/drop and it's toast.

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Pdaxii3 Problem
« on: September 25, 2007, 06:23:58 pm »
You should try posting every single step -- ie what files you used at what points (filenames and versions!). When you make your posts so general it is impossible for anyone else to help you. Try reinstalling but writing down absolutely everything you do as you are doing it. It may be more effort, but if you're not willing to do it why should we be willing to help?

I'm definitely not very knowledgeable on this subject, but you probably won't be able to use your CF WiFi card through a USB card reader. I don't think the card readers support CFIO -- I think you can only use them to read/write regular CF cards (but I'm not positive).

Off Topic forum / Issue With Wget, Ipkg, Etc.

I don't know how to fix it, but it sounds like a problem either with DHCP (ie getting your IP) or getting a nameserver (usually also assigned over DHCP when using WiFi). The only thing I would suggest is confirming the right WiFi settings and ejecting/reinserting the card, but I'm sure you've already tried that.
Basically you'll have to wait for someone better at this than me (which is most people) to help you out.

The nameserver used is located in /etc/resolv.conf, but I'm not sure how that gets assigned in pdaXrom.

That OQO really didn't treat you well, did it Meanie?
