Angstrom & OpenZaurus / Outdated Angstom Wiki And Links
« on: May 29, 2010, 03:37:30 pm »
Quote from: btanoue

Its been a looonnnngg time.

I figured I might as well hack my zaurus for the time being.
I'm thinking of making a wireless NAS out of it for light File sharing.

So, I have no idea now how to install Angstorm.
I looks like Angstrom is the most up to date I wrong?
I had zubuntu, but did a nand flash and now have the Sharp Rom installed.

Do I still need a, zImage.bin and initrd.bin?
I found a link on Angstroms site to build a custom install, but I have no idea what to do with it.
I also can't get a build to work.  I keep getting fails.  I just wanted X-11 or Opie.  SMB/NFS.  If I keep a minicomputer, maybe a web browser of some sort.

I'm sorry this is noobish, but I haven't touched my zaurus  in ages...I'm a noob again.


There's no image file here

as stated on the wiki

InSearchOf is in the process of releasing pdaxrom 2.0

Maybe it would make sense to focus our energy on this????

Good post. I guess plenty of us are wonder what's happening with kernel dev.

I would make sense to find out if the Debian community could provide zaurus kernel updates. Just like openbsd....

Debian / Apt Pinning

Found a nice newbie-friendly article on apt pinning, which enables the user to prioritize the repos in /etc/apt/sources.list instead of installing/upgrading things simply based on the versioning of the packages:

One immediate use I thought of is to assign the highest priority to jpmatrix's custom repo, so that 2or0's mplayer won't get replaced by apt-get dist-upgrade.  

My /etc/apt/preferences is pretty much exactly whats on that link plus a line to keep udev from upgrading.  Any others?  Maybe we should keep a list of potential apt pit falls.

Code: [Select]
Package: udev
Pin: version 0.114-2
Pin-Priority: 1001

Package: *
Pin: release a=stable
Pin-Priority: 700

Package: *
Pin: release a=testing
Pin-Priority: 650

Package: *
Pin: release a=unstable
Pin-Priority: 600

PS my udev pin might not be at the highest possible version, but it hasn't caused a problem yet.

Thanks for the info, my udev is broken....any ideas on how to fix it?

Debian / Pretec 802.11g ?
« on: September 05, 2009, 05:11:32 pm »
Hi Guys,

Can some one help me get the Pretec 802.11g card working?

I came across this link that mentions the card is supported:

Where can I download the libertas_helper.fw and libertas.fw files?

Also, when I plug in my card the lights are not on.

iwconfig states no wireless extensions.


Ubuntu / Zubuntu And Cacko?how?

Ubuntu / Zubuntu Performance?

I can't really compare it to Cacko, but it is MUCH snappier than Debian. There's a bit of lag in the heavier apps (Abiword, browsers, etc.), but it's usable. Webkit browsers work quite nicely.

Hope that answers your questions well enough.

I have found zubuntu slower than Debian.
