Angstrom & OpenZaurus / Oz(hentges) Wifi Help Needed.
« on: January 10, 2007, 12:52:06 pm »
Attached are my hacked up hostap_cs.conf file and wlan.dat file with the fixed cardinfo.

The hostap_cs file needs to be re-written as it was just a quick butcher of the one from OZ to make it just recognize my card.

I'm seeing this when I try to run opera on my 5500 running OpenZaurus

Glad it helped!     Mine is slightly modified.  Though that's probably not a surprise to most of the people around here....   

Woah! That's cool Barry.

Any write-up of how you did that? That looks to be a useful mod.

It works!

I created a cis file for the card using a combination of dump_cis and part of a dump_cis output from someone here in the forums who gave me the output of their card ( Thank you BarryW! ).

writing up a hostap_cs.conf that just had my card in it instructing it to load the cis file I created and the card works instead of erroring out.

I installed the 20061108 cardfs-gpe-collie install on my 5500 and I'm having trouble with both ipkg update failing and dist-upgrade failing, Do I need to do a dist-upgrade if I have the 20061108 image?

ipkg seems to fail on getting packages from, It fails on the python feed

Is it an  XTERASYS CWB1K?  If so, return it.  I tried getting it to work, and they're just cheap trash.  I'm sending it back to Newegg tomorrow, and spent my money on an Ambicom that worked right out of the box.  Amazon has the card, as well as the DLink and Linksys cards.  Good luck finding a Netgear card, though.

Yeah thats the card, I got it off Newegg as it was the only card they had available when I was ordering.

Did you run into the same problems?

I've got a Intersil Prism 2.5 (HFA384x) based CF Card I'm trying to get working on my Zaurus 5500.

On insert I get :

hostap_cs: setting Vcc=33 (constant)
hostap_cs: ignoring Vcc=33 (from config)
CardServcies(ParseTuple) returned 64
hostap_cs: ParseTuple: Bad CIS tuple
hostap_cs: GetNextTuple: No more items
prism2_config() failed

cardctl ident gives me:
Socket 0:
  product info: "Wireless", "LAN Adapter", "Version 01.02", ""
  manfid: 0x0156, 0x0002
  function: 6 (network)

Anyone have any suggestions as how to proceed?


Edited with more info:

I've been pushing my google-fu to the limit today searching out similar problems, it sounds like my card has bad CIS data.

If I do a dump_cis I get an parse error: Invalid argument after it prints out the config base info.

This leaves me without the cftable_entry, VCC, ipeak, io, and irq lines as far as I can determine.

As this card is a prism2ish card could someone with a card using the same chipset (and hopefully the same manfid) post an output of their dump_cis and dump_cis -v ?

I'm hoping I can hack together a cis file and load it in the config file for pcmcia (if I can remember how to write up a entry!)

Angstrom & OpenZaurus / Back Up A Working Install Of Sd? Cf+flash?
« on: December 02, 2005, 10:11:48 pm »
I unearthed my 5500 from the bag I had it in when I went on a trip a number of months ago and much to my suprise its in what appears to be a mostly functional state.

What's the best way to back it up so that I can restore this state at a latet time? I need to use my SD card for something else for a little bit and I dont want to loose what I have which appears to be a Hentges build of OZ with working Java, Sharp Compat libs and even support for my Sandisk Connect Plus.

The one I purchased showed up.

OZ Sees it aas a ipaq bluetooth sleeve when inserted.

I did a scan at a location with a Bluetooth enabled G5 (This is the first bluetooth item I own) and it found the G5.

I'd put that down as partially working.

I bough one last week and it just arrived.

It shows up when plugged into my Zaurus as a iPaq Bluetooth Sleeve?

Dunno if it'll work or not , this is the only bluetooth item I own .

In response to your storage question.

I've used a 512mb SD card  and a 2.2GB CF Microdrive with my 5500.

SIMpad forum / Bootloader (where?)
« on: June 21, 2005, 07:27:09 pm »
Is this one of the Simpads from the guy on Ebay who's selling them cheaply?

I use the little plastic bit that sticks out of the cover to press the reset button all the time.

Never thought about it breaking, I suppose if it did I'd be in trouble.

It just seems natural tho, the button is about the same size and shape as the little plastic bit for the lock.
