Zaurus - pdaXrom / Gpe Pim For R121/r198
« on: June 02, 2007, 12:41:20 pm »
I'm trying to get these working as well under r197 (boxer). Any luck? So far, I've had to manually install libeventdb-compat, libmimedir & libgpepimc beyond what the requirements listed in the packages go. but gpe-contacts gives me the following error:

Code: [Select]
root@grond$ DISPLAY=:0 gpe-contacts
gpe-contacts: relocation error: /usr/lib/ undefined symbol: sqlite_open
and I there doesn't seem to be an available ipk for a library that gpe-calendar needs:

Code: [Select]
root@grond$ DISPLAY=:0 gpe-calendar
gpe-calendar: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I'm really just looking for some decent PIM apps, but the last time I looked at dates, it wasn't very functional yet. As well, using the gpe suite would make it easier to eventually switch back-n-forth between pdaxrom & angstrom.

So you have R197 + sp3 running? Just to be sure before flashing ...[div align=\"right\"][a href=\"index.php?act=findpost&pid=162403\"][{POST_SNAPBACK}][/a][/div]
Correct. The only issues for me right now is restoring my custom fstab & .Xdefaults after installing. So unless you've touched any of the config files in the package, you should be ok.

Here's a listing without the binary's that are updated:

Code: [Select]
grog@grond$ ipkg files pdaXrom-fixes | grep -v "bin|lib|usr"

Oh, and Meanie. Could I ask a favour & get you to correct the permissions of the directories in the package, specifically /etc, /etc/rc.d, /etc/rc.d/init.d & /etc/X11 (just the ones I can remember off the top of my head). 99% of my work on the Z is in a terminal as a non-root user using sudo & I keep having to reset these dirs back from 700 to 755 after I install the sp. thks

hi Meanie, are your patches good for sl-c860?

it should work, but untested due to lack of said device...[div align=\"right\"][a href=\"index.php?act=findpost&pid=162351\"][{POST_SNAPBACK}][/a][/div]
They've worked ok for me so far, except for the issues that Meanie's fixed already. Back up first & the n see how it goes. That's waht I've done.

I've been using gentoo on my desktop for a while now. It's great once you get it installed, but I admit it was a pain getting there. I even tried to install it on my laptop too, but in the end just couldn't get it working.

There's a lot of discussion going on on the gentoo forums right now about the poor quality of the live/install cd's. I get the impression it's not going to get fixed anytime soon.

I was finally able to install it via a net install using the minimal cd. As I said, it was a while ago so the details are kinda fuzzy now. Browse & post on the forums for help. I'm sure with enough persistence you'll get it running. I've found it worth it.

Sorry this is taking so long. I found some bugs that could lead to having incorrect information inputted/outputted that are taking a while to sort out.[div align=\"right\"][a href=\"index.php?act=findpost&pid=162132\"][{POST_SNAPBACK}][/a][/div]
I think I'm going for a rewrite here. This is just WAY full of bugs, and I should be able to make it more efficient. Don't worry, I'll keep the old code around, just in case.[div align=\"right\"][a href=\"index.php?act=findpost&pid=162133\"][{POST_SNAPBACK}][/a][/div]
Hey, take your time. And I'm sorry for opening such a big can-o-worms     I'm sure I can speak for all of us that we really appreciate your hard work on this.

It's always fun!

On my C860 I have to change the line in /usr/X11R6/bin/startx from

Code: [Select]
defaultserverargs=" -nolisten tcp -screen 480x640@270"to

Code: [Select]
defaultserverargs=" -nolisten tcpMaybe there could be some code to check the machine:

Code: [Select]
if [ $HARDWARE = "Husky" ]; then
    defaultserverargs=" -nolisten tcp
   defaultserverargs=" -nolisten tcp -screen 480x640@270"
or something like that.

Just so I don't get this wrong, you want an option in the menu that just spits out the raw stuff stored in the profile file, so output would be something like this:

Code: [Select]
SSID: somessid
Key: xxxxxxxxxx
IP: dhcp
IP could of course actually be an IP address.[div align=\"right\"][a href=\"index.php?act=findpost&pid=161896\"][{POST_SNAPBACK}][/a][/div]
That is precisely what I had in mind. thks

I had to drop off the radar for a while (new addition to the family, now even less spare time  ). I just downloaded 1.3, thanks for the changes, they work great.

One more request . Can you add an option to show the settings of a profile? Either prompting for the profile to show, or maybe just the active one, whatever you think. This can be as simple as just spitting the file out, but would be better if the settings could be labeled so we know what they are.

thanks again.

1. I can probably do that, but it won't be the first thing to go in, as it appears to be more difficult than the others.

EDIT: How about having the "active" profile simply not shown, then having the active profile name listed at the bottom:

Code: [Select]
Active: /home/xyz/Choices/wlanconfig/profileC
works for me.

2. Easily done. (done)

3. Probably (see #1) EDIT: I made it so it'll list the profiles before you select the active one...I'm working on having it complain if the file/profile doesn't exist.
double kewl

4. I can have it be run after making any connection or have a prompt after making said connection saying "Would you like to see the details of your connection?" or something like that. Which would be better/less annoying? And for passing stuff in the command line to skip the UI? (done, up for changing)
I'd say have it default to coming up if being run interactively, otherwise no.

EDIT: It'll have to be the same for both UI and no UI, as they use the same code.
I don't see that as a problem.

EDIT: iwconfig, ifconfig, or both?
iwconfig I guess, specifcally for the affected interface (wlan0).

good work! keep it up!! thanks

Are there any features (besides a GUI) that people find to be missing from the app?[div align=\"right\"][a href=\"index.php?act=findpost&pid=161369\"][{POST_SNAPBACK}][/a][/div]

First off, GREAT GREAT GREAT utility. Many thanks.

Since you asked , a few requests:

- instead of showing 'active' as a profile, can the active profile be marked in the list (say with a '*')?

- can the profile list be shown one per line (would make it easier to read IMHO)?

- for setting the active profile, can the existing profiles be presented in a list to be selected?

- can we have an option to run ifconfig/iwconfig to show the connection details? Or maybe have that run after a connection is made to indicate success.

Sorry if this is a stupid question. But I am trying to go back to beta3. I can get into the DM menu fine. I did a nand flash erase no problem. But I don't have the original sharp rom. Would the Cacko rom do? or if someone can point me to the rom that would be great.[div align=\"right\"][a href=\"index.php?act=findpost&pid=161078\"][{POST_SNAPBACK}][/a][/div]
Cacko has worked for me in the past. HTH

probably because he is using 2.6 kernel where there is no cardctrl but some other command instead.
Is there a cardctrl command in some kernels as well as a cardctl command, or was that a typo?[div align=\"right\"][a href=\"index.php?act=findpost&pid=160367\"][{POST_SNAPBACK}][/a][/div]
AFAIK, just cartctl...[div align=\"right\"][a href=\"index.php?act=findpost&pid=160377\"][{POST_SNAPBACK}][/a][/div]
