5x00 General discussions / Rebooting
« on: June 15, 2004, 08:18:43 am »
Mine does the exact same thing.  I\'ve had the 5500 for about 6-7 months now, and, since I have installed the 3.1 ROM, it has hard reset 3 times on me.  I suspend it, go do something else for awhile, turn it on, and get the boot screen.  Once it boots, it starts up just as if it were the first time -- digitize the screen, etc. and all my info is gone.  This has happened 3 times in the last couple of months.  Often enough to become worrysome, but not often enough to suggest a conflict.  Any ideas?

Thanks doc for the quick work!  Works as advertised on my 5500 with the latest Sharp ROM.  I\'ll use it for a full round this Thursday.

Software / Opie-Reader (vC & E) will not load

I\'d love to try the \"all in one\" version if you don\'t mind.  I can get uqtreader to load everytime when calling it from a script, but only intermittent when executing the pgm uqtreader.  I don\'t know why, but if I can chown it to something other than root:root (i.e. 501:501, zaurus:qpe), it seems to work the 1st time, but not after.  I tried uninstalling from the SD card, and installing in RAM, but am having the same results.  Is the \"all in one\" available from your site?  Feel free to either PM or email me:

How much would the above PDA run?  I believe it\'d be worth a 2nd mortgage for one with those features!

Hi Bill, I\'m the opie-reader developer and I have only heard of one other user with the same \"starts from terminal but not from gui\" problem.

I saw how helpful you had been in the past, so I wanted to give your reader another go, not to mention the good reviews it has received.  It was worth it - really a nice reader!  Ebook reading is one of the main things that is a \'must have\' for me in a handheld.

I think it may have been due to some issues with installing to CF but from what you say it seems to be a permissions problem.

You may be correct, as mine is installed to the SD card.  I found out, when running from the terminal, it would start if I was the default user (Zaurus in the 3.1 ROM), but I would get the error when trying to start as root.  Therefore, I did ls -l to find out what other options for users I had, and saw one that was 501:501 (user:group).  So, tinkering, I chown 501:501 uqtreader.  This seemed to fix it intermittantly (initially it worked, now it doesn\'t).  A more permanent fix was to create a script (that I called
uqtreader &

Then I chmod a+x; chown 501:501  Then, under the \'Tab Settings\' option from the gui, I changed Opie-Reader to launch \'\' rather than \'uqtreader\'.  This works every time.  No idea why or how   I\'ll keep tinkering with it as the product is worth the effort.

BTW If I\'m anywhere near understanding correctly, the same fix ought to work for version e as well. For the other user with this problem, I ended up supplying a version with all the codecs compiled into the app. If anyone wants one of those, let me know - it\'ll be from the tips of my development tree so isn\'t ready for general release but it is good enough for most use.

I believe one of the 2 fixes should work for the other user with the problem.  If I find a cleaner fix, I\'ll let you know.  Thanks for your help, and please continue the good work

I fixed it!  For future information, if this is a problem for someone else, I had to chown 501:501 uqtreader, chmod a+x uqtreader, and it now works.  Sorry for the elementary problem

I am having a problem running Opie-Reader on my SL5500 with the Sharp 3.1 ROM.  I have run the reader before, and was switching back and forth between it and justreader.  I want to give opiereader another try, but it will not start up for some reason.  When selecing the icon from the menu, it \'clicks\' but eventually goes away, loading nothing.  When running uqtreader from a command prompt, it gives me a dependency error saying it cannot find --] which the output of find / -name shows to be in /home/QtPalmtop/lib/.  Any ideas?


Update - I uninstalled ve, installed version\'d\' -- this version will run if started from a terminal (uqtreader with user Zaurus (not root), but will not start from the launcher. Just curious if this is proper behavior. Thanks again!

For Sale / Wanted / Wanted: Zaurus 5500 AC connector

The AC adapters for the Dell Axim X5 also work.  That\'s what I had before I got the Z.

thank you both very much!  I figured there was a way, I was just searching for the wrong thread.

Please help, as I am nearly at my wits end.  I have a Netgear MA701 card, SL5500 running the latest Sharp ROM.  Wireless networking is working just fine, as long as a network is present.  Kismet, kismet_qt, etc. all work.  However, I would like to scan using kismet between networks.  My problem is, if no network is present, the card turns itself off.  Is this preventable?  It would be nice if I could turn my WiFi card on, and have it stay on.  I believe I\'ve tried everything but the proper thing

Thanks in advance,
