Philly/NJ / Anyone alive?

For Sale / Wanted / For Sale: Zaurus 5600
« on: July 03, 2004, 05:36:56 am »
Ok so, technically I have 2 Zaurii for sale.

They both are Zaurus 5600's.  Included with them is the Sharp Camera card and all the manuals/boxes/docking stuff/cd's that came with the pda and camera.

They are both PXA-255 models so you don't have to deal with that nasty bug.

If you'd like, for an extra cost I can include a WiFi card (Ambicom WL1100C-CF or Linksys WCF12 (which comes with a neat case)).  Also, for an extra cost, I can include a 64 meg PNY SD card.

You do not have to buy them both; you may buy only one and mix and match what you want, I don't care.  Also, whoever orders the first one gets an extra screen cover (it's not much, but hey it's better than nuthin).

I figured I'd open it up to the Zaurus community before I put it on ebay.  I'd like to buy a Clamshell model, so this is my way of getting the money for it.

If you are interested, please post here, pm me, or email me at

Thanks ~

General Discussion / I Give Up
« on: July 03, 2004, 05:24:56 am »
Ok I give up.  After countless hours upon hours of trying to get Wifi running on this thing, I realize that all my efforts were worthless.  At one point I had a good connection for a while and I was sshing into my zaurus from my laptop.  For some reason, it pulled in a local IP address but couldn't get onto the internet.

Then I wanted to make sure the connection was legit, so I pulled the Wifi card out and waited a minute.  After putting it back in, it could no longer pull the connection up.  After many failed attempts and Googling, I was able to pull the connection up once more.  It wouldn't pull an IP address though.  Meanwhile, my laptop is sitting on my lap the whole time connected perfectly fine using a Microsoft WiFi card (how's the irony in that).

On that note, I'm really tired of this 5600.  It has not lived up at all to my expectations.  With tkcRom, I had my Linksys WiFi card that connected good, but it froze the whole Zaurus to the point where I couldn't use it at all after a minute of being connected.  Zynergy was ok, but one of the most important things, the package installer, doesn't work.  OpenZaurus, which is what I'm using now, is my favorite.  But without WiFi, this Zaurus is not worth the investment I put into it.  I've tried two different cards, the popular Ambicom and the popular Linksys model.

I've been using linux for years, and nothing has been more of a pain to get up and running than my Zaurus (though I'm not counting my first encounters with Slackware).  I'm debating ditching the 5600 and going with the more supported 5500.  I've also seen how there is a lot of support for the C series, so maybe that.  Regardless, my days with the 5600 are numbered.

Angstrom & OpenZaurus / OZ and 5600 Network woes
« on: July 01, 2004, 06:00:41 pm »
Ok, I have a quick question.  I finally got OZ running on my 5600 and it runs pretty smoothly.  The only problem I have though is my Wireless card rarely connects, and when it does, even though it grabs an IP address from my router it still doesn't have an internet connection.

Anyone else have this problem and if so, how to remedy?

Qt/Qtopia / 3d Programming
« on: June 07, 2004, 05:53:37 pm »
Just out of curiosity, is there any kind of 3d framework for the Zaurus?  Mainly 5600\'s?

I\'m programming a 3d File Browser ( and I was just thinking of how neat it\'d be if I could port it to my zaurus..

So.. is there any kind of OpenGL/GLUT framework for the zaurus?

General Discussion / 5600 (pxa255) vs C860
« on: June 04, 2004, 12:39:29 pm »
I\'m thinking about upgrading my 5600 to the clamshell 860 Zaurus.

Out of curiosity, did anyone else do this upgrade and how satisfied were you with the extra cost?

Also, is there a big size/weight difference?  It seems like the 5600 might be a little larger.

One of the major factors for upgrading is the abilitity to use pdaXrom.  I\'d love to have X on my Zaurus.

I\'ve read a couple threads talking about sellers and I think the Ebay guy seems best.

Anyways, thanks for the info
