Debian / Kernel Conf File For Kernel
« on: July 01, 2008, 04:58:45 pm »
Quote from: abm_y4k

I've successfully recompiled the kernel and the hostap driver for injection with firmware upgradeable.

It seems hard to find a proper way to do the cross compile so I'll like to share my steps with you all.

Code: [Select]

tar xjf arm-2008q1-126-arm-none-linux-gnueabi-i686-pc-linux-gnu.tar.bz2

mv arm-2008q1 /usr/local

export PATH=/usr/local/arm-2008q1/bin/:$PATH

cd /usr/src

*download the kernel conf and patch file from
*save the kernel source to /usr/src

tar zxvf kernel-

mv config linux-

cd /usr/src/linux-

make zImage ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=arm-none-linux-gnueabi-

make modules ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=arm-none-linux-gnueabi-

make modules_install

* kernel should be in /usr/src/linux-
* modules should be in /lib/modules/
* make sure flash the kernel with the newly built modules

This might be very helpful for many ppl, forum admin should consider sticky this.

Been looking for this for such a long time   , will give it a try on the weekend.
Thanks so much!

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Itunes For Zaurus

Hi to all. Is there a clone-itunes for zaurus c3200?  

No real clone, but working very well on debian on my c1k: gtkpod  
Has all the functionality itunes has: cover-art, photos, podcasts, audiobooks, all kind of videos (music-video, tv-show,...).
Really great, actively developped, great mailing list:

Take a look:, some screenshots are there, too.

1. It's awesome slow on my zaurus .
2. You need an external usb-host with power supply to connect your ipod, your Z and an external usb-disk (with your music library on).
But after all, if you are using a normal linux computer, gtkpod is imho the best program for your ipod.  

Sorry dhns, i really appreciate your efforts around this little phone, but i would definitely like something with kernel 2.6.++!
Honestly, i would like a tested and stable device with a rather recent kernel and enough ram (>=128MB).

Question to users: What do you prefer a tried/tested device or leading-edge?

Just an idea:
pcmanfm uses
Code: [Select]
~/.pcmafm/mainfor it's preferences, including the geometry:

Code: [Select]



Perhaps we can use two different files together with zaurusd, to have pcmanfm scale the background right?
Maybe we should quit pcmanfm, when the orientation changes, change the two files and after that restart pcmanfm? But on my C1k pcmanfm is a bit slow...
Can't try it on my own, still apt-get upgrade running ...   (still 12min to download, some hours for the configuration...)

 And the thing is the pcmanfm wallpaper doesn't rotate...

Same in IceWM. All shortcut keys are in the "keys" text file. Super easy syntax and runs great. The default "preferences" already contains fullscreen, maximize and minimize (and many more) settings.
Yes, am already fiddling with it right now

This is a nice review:

Quote from: ZDevil
The main reason why I try not to use pcmanfm to set desktop icons is because the desktop icons must go together with the wallpaper setting in pcmanfm.  I have yet to figure out how to set desktop icons by pcmanfm while using a different wallpaper application (icewmbg or fbsetbg or hsetroot). And the thing is the pcmanfm wallpaper doesn't rotate...
Hm, i never rotated my fluxbox  , prefer the clamshell in landscape-orientation. Anyway, i will setup a fresh sd-card with the your last rootfs, do apt-get upgrade (takes a lot of time), so i can test your scripts better.

But right now, i will take a walk with my dogs.

Ah, that looks great!

As for fluxbox, i really like how easy the keyboard-shortcuts can be defined (maximize, minimize windows and so on).

Things already done:
7) Some tweaks to reduce disk writing (esp. for flash disks)

That's really great for my C1k, maybe it speeds things up a little bit?

Quote from: ZDevil
Things to be done (any help greatly appreciated!):
1) bluetooth
2) WPA support
3) automount SD/CF cards

So what's up with bluetooth? Some time ago i managed to sync my phone contacts with opensync and evolution by bluetooth. Maybe i can help?

Hi, ZDevil!

tested your script, menus are updated fine, did even find fluxbox .
Installed pcmanfm, followed your instructions -> icons on the Desktop. Fine!
My only problem: Didn't use icewm, had to reinstall. That's why i'm using xsession for choosing the windowmanger, this way (kdrive, xdm):

Code: [Select]
#exec startfluxbox
exec icewm-session

Now i don't know, how to autostart pcmanfm. Any help?

Quote from: ZDevil
3) Add automatic wallpaper rotation (landscape <-> portrait) using fbsetbg from fluxbox;

I am still thinking of adding some panel items, like volume control, etc. Any good suggestion and pointer?  

Some kind of panel-button showing quality of wlan-connection and if the zaurus connected at all would be fine, just like it was done in cacko.

Another question: What are the icons (Light-Bulb*.png, Rotate*.png) for?

That would be nice!  

This way it should be easier to concentrate on one problem - solve it - and move on.

Although a bit busy at the moment, i'll be definitely be a testing those scriptpacks.

Quote from: ZDevil
Just to add:

From now on before the release of the next OOTB rootfs tarball, I will put things up in scriptpacks and post them in the forum every now and then.


How's that?

 Finish?!   And the company is ...

 Thanks, 2or0!  

Your latest kernel is working fine with sharp bootlader on my C1k, no problems found so far.
And, best of all, to me it seems to be much more responsive.

Sorry guys,

i have to correct myself. Have been googling yesterday all evening for conky+apm+gnu screen, but didn't find anything usefull.
Conclusion: maybe impossible?    

But a little script in your shell-prompt could do the trick? You could export a variable including the script, and read this variable in your prompt.

Little example, shameless stolen from, great website for console lovers, but it's in german.

Code: [Select]
PWDTEST=’if [ ${#PWD} -gt 40 ];then echo -e “\n>”;else echo -e “>”;fi’
export PS1=”$RED\u$NC@$YELLOW\h$NC:$GREEN\w$NC\$($PWDTEST) ”

/rumours on

I saw somewhere some screenshots, that conky was able to do that in the bar of screen, but haven't tried it for myself.

Excellent idea!  

Maybe you could also add your steps setting up bluetooth?;hl=bluetooth, did the job for me. Had some troubles with pairing, but now my S-E K320i syncs with some quirks on my Z (opensync+evolution+contacts). Really nice
