Angstrom & OpenZaurus / Familiar 0.8
« on: December 13, 2004, 04:26:04 pm »
Anyone else tried Familiar 0.8 pre yet. Based on OZ GPE. I had a quick try earlier and it was very usable considering the last GPE rom I installed on my 5500. I didn't have time to download any packages for it so my experience was only with the base install from . I tried setting network connection with wireless card and although I could get it connected with WEP while docked in USB configuration went astray when disconnected from USB. The feeds are available but as I said I didn't have time to test.

Angstrom & OpenZaurus / Oz Synchronisation
« on: December 09, 2004, 06:47:58 am »
Hi all,

I have tried various versions of OZ including the latest 3.5.2 (Not tried Hentges version yet but may try if problem can be resolved). I mainly use as PIM but like to try things out. I don't know linux very well but I am a PC engineer and can work my way around most PC problems. I have my calendar and contacts synched between Outlook 2003 on WinXP and SharpRom at the moment and it works flawlessly. Whenever I try out one of the OZ Roms I try and get the Z to synch but never have any luck and always run out of time before I need my Z as a PIM again and reflash to SharpRom. I have tried using Intellisync 1.43e and setting network manually. I can ping my Z and I can configure Z to wireless network and access internet but I cannot get my data back into Z. I have tried using QTopia desktop instead of Outlook and tried KO/PI but cannot seem to make a connection between any program. If I use the sync button on cradle nothing happens. If I use synchronise option from whichever program it just waits for Zaurus but never responds. Any help would be greatly appreciated before I give up on OZ altogether.

Sharp ROMs / Hybrid Rom Qtopia 1.6.2

Hi all,

I have been testing various roms recently on my SL5500 and I think the best looking Rom I have found has to be this Hybrid Rom. The only problem I have is connecting it to my PC so that I can synch with Outlook. I can get the USB network interface up and ping my Zaurus but I cannot link to it with either Qtopia Desktop or Outlook. I have configured USB as TCP/IP advanced and as I said ping works no problem. The version of Qtopia Desktop I tried was 1.6 as stated in the download page.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. For now I am going back to Sharp Rom 3.13 with Cacko Patch for APM and battery (Which synchronizes and backups perfectly by the way).
