Zaurus - pdaXrom / Socket BlueTooth?
« on: October 17, 2004, 09:50:22 pm »
OK, I finally got things to at least appear on hciconfig and be able to pair/browse services with sdptool.  I haven't made this work all nice and automatically when I stick the card in yet, but for now (and for anyone in the future looking for this), the trick is hciattach.  The default drivers and stuff seem to work automatically, but you need to 'hciattach /dev/ttyS3 bcsp 230400' by hand.  Also, you may need the serial "patch" (it's a script replacement for like /etc/pcmcia/serial) from the Zaurus Bluetooth HOWTO (but *not* the driver package).  I have this installed but I don't know if it makes a difference or not.

After doing the hciattach, hciconfig should show you your card, and sdptool should be able to use it.  *Additionally*, if you're trying to pair to browse, make sure in /etc/bluetooth/hcid.conf your pin_helper or whatever is set to something that works.  Mine by default was set to some broken python script (but I repeat myself).  Replacing it with something simple like this does the trick:

Code: [Select]
echo PIN:1234

Anyhow, as a final note, the RIM BlackBerries do not do dialup networking.  Even the bluetooth ones (I was using one of the brand spanking new 7100t's here).  I called T-Mobile tech support and was cited some BS line about "security".  Whatever.  (It's too bad, because the phone was otherwise kinda neat.)

Hope that helps someone.  If I get some scripts working automatically for this later I'll post them.

OK, I can't find any additional C860 drivers.  I find 5500 ones for the 3.10 rom, but I found out the hard way those don't work.   All the links are broken to stuff built for the Cxxx series.  Anyone have anything handy?  I'm guessing I have a revision G card, but I'm not sure how to tell...

Hmm, the bluez packages didn't come with additional drivers. I"m trying to find an archive of them now to try the serial_cs thing.  I've installed all the bluez packages (libs, pan, sdp, util), and nothing.  I run /etc/rc.d/init.d/bluetooth start, and nothing.  hciconfig shows nothing, dmesg shows nothing but the tty03 stuff, etc.  Is there some additional step here I'm missing?

OK, I have a Socket Bluetooth card, rev 2.5... G or B I'm not sure, even cardctl info doesn't seem to say.  I'm sure this works, somehow, but all I can find amounts to "oh yeah it works, you just have to use the hacks (nudge nudge wink wink)" and I can't seem to find out what these hacks are.    

 I'm using RC5.  I insert the card, and dmesg says something about tty03 and ttyS03.  hciconfig reveals nothing.  cardctl knows the card is there.  hcid and sdpd are running.

What's the magic I need?  Thanks!

That binary version is for Qtopia/Opie, which use Qt/Embedded, not pdaXrom, which uses the full/normal gtk2/Qt libraries.  You'd want to cross-compile, but do a normal build.  I haven't had a chance to play with this much yet (beyond failing trying to cross compile some ruby modules) but if this doesn't make it into 1.1.0 I'll definitely be trying to build it myself.

As a followup, I finally got hwclock to work.  (Seems to work every once in awhile from the console, and cycling APM suspend with apm -s seems to help.)  Glad to hear it's fixed in current.  I'm sure all these minor snaggles are.  Everything works great now.

Actually I originally tried something like the second poster suggested (using date -s then hwclock --systohc), but while date works fine (unless used with matchbox or whatever, which locks solid when it notices the change), hwclock just sits there never returning.  Odd.  Will poke around more.

OK, so pdaXrom basically kicks ass.  Actually, no basically about it... everything just seems to work, and it's got almost everything I want (lacking a few ruby modules).

However there's one glaring oddity.  It keeps resetting the date when I start X to 16:00 Dec 13, 2004, and if I use the time and date app, it locks the desktop/window manager and I have to reboot.   D'oh.

Anyone have a fix for this? (C860, yadda)

So,  my 860 is on order (backorder it seems... who's the one who ordered 100 860's from dynamism?  ), and I'm wondering about pdaXrom.
  • Does pdaXrom come with qtvfb so you can run Qtopia apps in X?
  • Is Japanese input supported?
  • Any handwriting recognition (not that I'd likely use it, but...)?
  • Any other drawbacks and/or cool things before I install?
