Hi folks,

I am still trying to set up an IrdA-PPP connection between my Sony Ericsson k608i (somewhat dated.....just like the Zaurus:)) and my newly acquired SL C-3200.

I had the same Sony Ericsson k608i connected to my old Psion 5mxPro which always worked.

But I have never used IrdA-PPP on the Zaurus, so if somebody can give me a comprehensive general introduction, that would be appreciated as well!

So far I have tried following init-strings:

at e0<cr>at+cgatt=0<cr>at+cgdcont=3,"ip","" or AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP","","",0,0



My provider is in Austria called "Drei", and the APN is on first place on my phone.

On my Psion I only had to type in the calling number which was: *99***1#, do I need to put this at the "phone" line in the network connection?????

Are there any other suggestions????

Thanks: Balazs

Hi folks,

I just purchased a C3200 and now I am back to the Zaurus world again!!! I used to have a C750 before.

I have never used IrDA-PPP before, so this is the first time, at least with the Zaurus. I used to have a working connection with the same phone (SonyEricsson k608i) and my Psion 5mxPro with the following parameters:

APN: (this is my provider)
Calling number: *99***1# (this was because the providers network is on the first place in the phone)
no password
everything else (DNS,IP,etc.): automatic
AND I DIDN'T have to set up or enter ATZ-String.

So, my question is: how do I set up this on my Zaurus? Do I need the ATZ-String, and if yes, where can I get it?

Sorry for the stupid question, but I just can't figure it out!

Thanks: Balazs

Hi Henrik!

How is the battery? Is it still going strong? Any estimated time maybe? Did You have a dual boot Cacko plus Ubuntu?

I would be interested, I offer You 250EUR including shipping to Austria (Vienna), if it sounds OK for You, please send me Your contact details to

I will be back after the weekend, so no hurry! Thanks: Balazs

Quote from: PoxX
The Zaurus has been shipped back to Sweden, so it's available from within Europe if someone is interested.
Cacko 1.23 is installed on it and working as it should.

Ubuntu / Is Multibooting Zubuntu + Cacko Possible On C1000?
« on: August 31, 2009, 01:41:10 am »
That´ eatlcy why I still want a Zaurus instead of a netbook, which I already own (Asus EeePc 704 with Ubuntu on it). I just need something I can carry around, with PIM, email, Web, and some limited Office capability.

But maybe I just wait for the new "Zaurus" (Z-1) or I just stick with my 10 year old Psion5mx Pro  

Ubuntu / Is Multibooting Zubuntu + Cacko Possible On C1000?
« on: August 21, 2009, 02:15:31 am »
Hi everyone!

1. Maybe a stupid question.....: Is it possible to multiboot and use Zubuntu and Cacko on a C1000? Or should I go for a C3100 or C3200 instead? In other words, do I need the additional harddrive, and if yes, is 4Gb enough for this purpose?

2. Does OpenOffice work on Zubuntu? I would need to create pdf files from texts. Or is there any other good software that can convert a text with pictures to pdf on the Zaurus (on Cacko 1.23 would be ideal if possible.?

I want to spend some more time with Zaurus again, but my only real experience so far was my C750, which I sold several months ago.

Thanks: Balazs

5x00 General discussions / Best Rom For 5600?
« on: October 26, 2008, 05:48:51 pm »

I am thinking about buying a 5600 (Poodle), so my question would be,

WHAT´s the BEST, STABLE, general purpose ROM, that is available now for the Poodle?

I will use a CF Wifi Card, a Pockettop IR keyboard, etc.

Or what ROMs are available at all, that are working for an everyday use, without hacking too much? I am a newbie to Linux....

On the package it says it´s a pxa250 processor !!!!!! Is this anything to consider?
Thanks a lot: Balazs

For Sale / Wanted / Wanted: Zaurus C750,c760 Or C860 As An Entry Device!
« on: October 18, 2008, 05:40:29 pm »

I am considering an entry into the Zaurus world, and am looking for a (not too expensive) way to test, if it suits my needs, or not.

So, I am looking for a C-clamshell model, the base price should be no more than 100 euros (with accessoires of course more...).

Anybody out there, who could sell me one?

Thanx: Balazs

Hi Steve!

What would be Your price for all this?

I am living in Austria, any ideas about shipping costs?

(just to be honest....I am still undecided whether I should go with C-models or this, as an entry into the Zaurus world, but if the price is OK, I would consider it.)

Thanx: Balazs

Security and Networking / How To Connect Zaurus (c760) To Nokia N70 Over Bt?
« on: September 27, 2008, 05:09:15 pm »

I am considering to buy a Zaurus clamshell, probably the C760 for trying out what´s possible with it.

My question is: how can I connect the Zaurus to my Nokia N70 over bluetooth to do file transfer and to connect to the internet through my phone network? Is there some kind of a "howto" somewhere, or can somebody give me details?  

Which BT card, adapter, etc. works with this, using Cacko 1.23, which I intend to use on the Z?

Thanks a lot, best regards: B.Becker
