I can post it here if you want to try.
please do

Would regular kexec be able to see the extended partitions on a SD card ?
you load the new kernel into memory from a running system, so it should work with anything you can mount

Sharp ROMs / Multiboot With Sharp Rom

I booted from a 1 GB SD card using the kernel that worked and this time the SD driver worked. When I compared it to the one I tried from the 8 GB SDHC it was identical. I booted again via the 8 GB card and after waiting for a bit the SD driver seemed to work. I then installed Bucchi's SDHC driver.

which kernel are you using?  I could never get this to work...

The kexec kernel takes a long time to boot because it is probing the NAND partitions for bootable kernels. It would be nice to be able to press a key to skip this bit.

After thinking about it some more, what I'd really like to do is to run the Sharp ROM off SD card and install something like Zubuntu 2 to NAND because that would really benefit from a speed up. I have the Sharp ROM on my 750 so I only need it on my 3200 as a back up.

if you boot straight into debian or unbuntu you can then do a regular kexec to the sharprom kernel -- much faster than waiting for the multiboot kernel nand search

Software / Google Maps Clients With Gps Support: Pgmap And Qgmap

Cool idea. The program on the zaurus seems like it runs well. But the map downloader will only download maps of Japan. Were you able to get it to work?

zroadmap so far might be a better gps sollution even though it is a few years old.

I'm using it in japan, and zroadmap is US-only

I've used pgmap on a debian zaurus, qgmap on a sharprom zaurus, and both on a debian laptop

you can download maps with pgmap on the desktop and rsync them to the zaurus for qgmap as the map dir is compatible

if you edit pgmap's and change hl=ja to hl=en you can get maps with english text

if you edit pgmap's and change

Code: [Select]
if ($map->{backup} && !$map->{selected} ) {to

Code: [Select]
if (!$map->{selected}) {then you can shift-A anywhere to select all tiles on screen even without a backing map at the wider zoom level (works ok at level 14 but dies sometimes at 15 or 16, though you should be able to find the area you want ok at 14)

it would be nice if it was modified properly to provide a world keymap at the widest zoom as a starting point...

What are you trying to do with it, partition the internal 4GB flash? Unfortunately, that's not going to work - we have two separate 2GB chips in there and there's a big ubifs volume spanned over them. No way to repartition the flash yet I'm afraid.

depends what's doing the auto-suspend.  if it's sleepd ( you can use sleepctl

VooDoo I guess, mine did fine but others have issues ... sorry

ok, I must be sacrificing the wrong number of chickens or something then.  oh, well.  gnome-power-statistics is cute though...

anyway, I've come up with a couple of alternatives

this one doesn't need X (just skip the "-s" line).  also check the list of interrupts if you're not using a 3x00.  also see sleepctl
Code: [Select]
sleepd \
 -u 120 \
 -i 75 -i 76 -i 81 -i 98 -i 100 -i 102 -i 103 -i 155 \
 -s "xmessage -buttons abort -default abort -timeout 10 suspending && apm -s"

this one requires X but doesn't need dbus and hal like the gnome thing does
Code: [Select]
xautolock \
 -time 2 \
 -detectsleep \
 -locker "apm | grep 'Off-line' > /dev/null && xmessage -buttons abort -default abort -timeout 10 suspending && apm -s"

Turns out setting the gnome-power-management functions did the trick.

Is there a trick to that?  I tried it and it changes the backlight levels when plugging/unplugging AC power but doesn't suspend on idle...

Debian / Closing Lid Setting

I have had numerous instances where, carrying the machine in my pocket, something will touch the button and it will wake up, and drain the battery.

yeah, me too.  is there any way to poll the hinge switch to see if the lid is closed?  then it'd be easy to test on resume and just suspend again
