Zaurus - pdaXrom / Fixes For R198/r197
« on: December 07, 2008, 03:57:31 pm »
I would like to post my addons to the SP8. The package contains some further tweaks and concentrates on making all preinstalled applications fit the screen size. It also provides default screen calibration and mouse button config files (Fn is the right-click modifier and Ctrl is the middle-click modifier). After installing it you will no longer need the buggy inputconfig script.

It is meant to be installed immediately after the SP8.

List of changes after SP8:
- X is started by default
- updated ipkg.conf with more feeds
- updated rc.xml (openbox config) to automaximize some applications
- updated Xresources for rxvt and xpdf to fill the screen
- default geometry settings for preinstalled applications
- Skins directory for xmms
- /etc/sysconfig/x11* files for right- and middleclick mouse bindings
- stylus pre-calibrated (now you can remove buggy inputconfig)
- fbpanel clock can launch date and time setup
- environment variable for for java (jamvm+classpath)
- quick 5-step brightness control
- mc can handle ipk as archives
- ipkg-build script added

The other package containes the Tango icon theme for X11 file managers.

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Smaller Dialogs For Bmp

Since bmp-mad requires libxmms to work I also had to package it separately. Now I can remove xmms, which fails to show any unicode text at all in PdaXrom.

I made some changes to the glade files that describe the preferences and open file dialogs of Beep Media Player to make the fit the Zaurus VGA screen.
Here are the changed files and a complete package for PdaXrom.

Debian (Andromeda) is fast and good.
If Debian cannot fit into the NAND it can never even think to compete with PdaXrom.
I have a C1000 and I need all cards to be interchangeable, so no swap files and no Andromedas. There is just NO SPACE for it.

Just install the IPK in this thread (latest is sp8, buried withing the thread IIRC). It works best to install over a fresh install, IMO.
Is anyone going to fix the PDAXrom SITE and put the SPs there?

The blogs on the mention the Service Packs, but provide no links. I am fresh from Cacko with C1000 and I wasted 5 days fixing keyboard bugs and basically remaking part of the fixes (constantly cursing the webmasters and dead links and bloody ERROR 404). BTW, Where are the sources for r198 now?

Many people advocate Debian, but I definitely refuse to boot from CF or SD cards (need to keep them freely removable and replaceable), so no Debian for me unless it fits in C1000's NAND.

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Pdax And Gps Navigation
« on: August 18, 2006, 10:20:23 am »
Some of you might ask why I still want to keep a qtopia-bound app. The answer is - it is a life saver when you are far from home.

I do know that there is an analog of qpegps for X called gpsdrive. Unfortunately it is severely handicapped by design.  It refuses to load images larger than 1280x1024 and it does not support  any standard map projections. All it offers is an exotic one-point method to find coordinates. As a result it is next to impossible to get it to navigate a proper topographic map needed for hiking and biking.  GPSdrive can only use internet maps which show nothing but useless empty grey spaces outside of major cities.

I am currently a C1000/Cacko user and I want to select the best ROM for GPS navigation with raster maps.

The reason why I want to switch is Qtopia. I just hate its lack of features and incompatibility with my desktop apps. To my dismay it is required by qpegps, which seems to be the only sane raster navigation app for Zaurus.

What is really good in Cacko  
1 it supports my 4Gb SD
2 it supports my Socket bluetooth card, bluetooth GPS and phone (with GUI)
3 it gives excellent control over power-saving features:
   - downclocking is done with two clicks
   - automatic suspend and screen-off is easily configurable
   - autosuspend is automatically disabled if GPS app is on
   - the screen is turned off when folded
   - brightness control works well
This gives me about 12-13 hours of continuous track logging and instant map access on a single EA-BL11 battery.

Can current pdaXrom provide these 1-2-3 points?
Can any other X-based ROM be better in terms of longer battery life?
Is it possible to run qpegps in pdaXrom without perceivable performance loss?
This app loads large raster images and needs a lot of memory and a fullscreen mode to run properly.

Accessories / 2gb Sd Card On An Sl-c860
« on: August 18, 2005, 03:28:06 pm »
I've got a C1000 with Cacko ROM 1.23b and tried 4 different 2Gb SD cards.  Here are their brands and the number that cat /proc/driver/mmcsd/00/manufacture tells.

Apacer 2Gb 150x    - 30
Kingmax 2Gb 150x - 30
ATP 2Gb - 29
A-Data 2Gb  - 29

None of them is compatible with my Zaurus. Cards with manufacturer 30 can be read with great difficulties. They cause kernel panics and break normal operation of the kernel. Cards with manufacturer 29 lock up the device until I remove them.

My conclusion was that Zaurus SD card driver is horrible piece of crap.    
Try MMC or even MMCPlus if it can be used with newer Zaurii.

BTW. Transcend 1Gb - 28 works nicely but is too small.
