Hi :-)
I ask via PM ... (please don't reask, they are on heavy work!) ...

They are doing a complete rebuild on pdaXrom (V2.0.0) on a newer 2.6.xx kernel ... kernel work done by maybe 90% ... I don't know how far is GUI! THey said that if it is going to Beta state there will be an announce on the projects homepage ... Hope to get it soon because angstoem-distribution.org is getting really fine :-)

Please GoOn pdaXrom  ...

Thanks to devs for their hard work !
Martin

Thanks for the info but who is working on this stuff?

Thanks Again for the support Martin, myself and Sash (defiently not MIA). As martin said ,yes pdaXrom is getting built again from scratch, literally, from scratch. We have a working bootable "shell only" rom, with functional CF, USB, SD(MMC), Hotplug, etc. There is still a lot of work that needs to be done but it is being worked on.

pdaXrom isn't dead, we are just hiding :-)

Late

That's good news, you guys have our support...go go go go

There are some cheap Canon K30225 CF wifi cards on ebay at the moment.  Anyone using one with debian?  Thanks.

Has anyone tried the SparkLAN WL-672 Wireless Compact Flash? Does it work?

Debian / Why Is Debian Slow?
« on: May 12, 2008, 07:17:46 am »

First off, this is an honest question, NOT an attempt to start a flame war. I REALLY want to like Debian on my Zaurus.

What makes Debian so much slower than Angstrom? They both run off of the HDD and they both use EABI (?), so why the huge performance gap? Is it something I could fix?

Thanks.

PS: Is there a way to have a Debian-Angstrom dual-boot? I know at least for a while Debian was using the Angstrom kernel.

EDIT: Nevermind. I decided that my Angstrom build environment was foobared enough, as were the images, so Debian gets another chance. I'd still like to know why it's slow, though.

Hi Capn_Fish,

Are you running titchy? I've installed zdevils rootfs, with the yongguns kernel and it's fast.

Hi,

I installed both KDE and Gnome and was surprised that KDE performs better.

Gnome is just too slow. Is anyone successfully runnig Gnome? What tweaks could be applied?

I am surprised.  
Is it possible to install kde as default window-manger instead of ice-wm? Any link?.

just do a aptitude install
kde-desktop or
gnome-desktop

Ubuntu / Ubuntu Frisky Firedrake Available...

Hi,

I've asked for a dedicated Ubuntu subforum, but since Ubuntu is based on Debian I posted this here for the time being.

I've finally uploaded a version 0.1 of Ubuntu Frisky Firedrake for all of you to try. Detailed instructions can be found here. Thanks to speculatrix for hosting the files.

It's a bit different than all the other images I guess. Since this is just a version 0.1, I've based the installation instructions on the Qemu (ARM) emulator. There's much left to be fixed and configured, so this is much easier done in Qemu on a fast machine instead of doing it on the much slower Zaurus.

Please help me to get to a version 1.0 as soon as possible, by giving it a try, and sharing your thoughts, suggestions and hopefully your patches/fixes/scripts etc. Also, let me know if there are any errors in the instructions.

Have fun,
cortez


Well done cortez,

What are the advantages of using ubuntu over debian ?

Thanks....

One issue, after doing the post install, I have no xfbdev package, so I cannot do a startx. How can I install this. I tried

apt-get install xserver-xfbdev

but the package is not found. Thanks.

You can download the repackaged version of xserver-xfbdev from angstrom.

Hi the following package is corrupt  :  xserver-kdrive-fbdev

For video performance and mplayer issues, you can check out this thread: https://www.oesf.org/forum/index.php?showtopic=25456
Close-lid & backlight off: It seems to be a bug. I am trying to fix it now by making a new script to turn on/off backlight on lid open/close events. That should be easy to fix.
Update:  

Fixed. I find that /usr/bin/bl (called by the closing/opening/twisting screen events) is defunct. So I improve the setfl script as a replacement and execute it in lid closing/opening event.
Now closing the lid will turn off the screen backlight. Opening it will turn it on again (resuming the backlight value before off).
Also I can set the backlight higher, lower, off, on (resuming the value before off) and maximal value thru command line/key binding.

Perhaps I should split things further into three: new desktop environment, icewm enhancement, and general fixes (backlight, mouse right click, "yelp" fix, libdirectfb and libts mods)?

New things keep poping up when working towards the end ...

Hi ZDevil,

Thanks for all the help. I'm up and running now. What packages do you recomment to install?
I'm going to try lxde,

Between a Z and a Linux host.

usb-gadget start

The first step would be to configure the device usb0 in /etc/network/interfaces on your Z.

# Ethernet/RNDIS gadget (g_ether)
# ... or on host side, usbnet and random hwaddr
iface usb0 inet static
        address 192.168.129.10
        netmask 255.255.255.0
        network 192.168.129.0
        gateway 192.168.129.1

usb-gadget already pre-configures usb0 for you, so you can just use the defaults here.

The next step is to configure usb0 on your PC. Again, this is done in /etc/network/interfaces:

iface usb0 inet static
     address 192.168.129.1
     pointopoint 192.168.129.10
     netmask 255.255.255.0
     network 192.168.129.0
     broadcast 192.168.129.255

The IP of your Zaurus has been set to 192.168.129.10, the IP of your PC (for the USB network only!) has been set to 192.168.129.1.

Run ifup usb0 on both your Zaurus and the PC to bring up the devices.
At this point your Zaurus should be able to ping your PC:

# ping 192.168.129.1
PING 192.168.129.1 (192.168.129.1): 56 data bytes
64 bytes from 192.168.129.1: icmp_seq=0 ttl=64 time=1.3 ms
64 bytes from 192.168.129.1: icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=4.1 ms

To allow your Z to connect to the other machines in your local network (LAN), you have to enable IP forwarding on the machine connected to your Z:

echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward

and use NAT on outgoing connections:

iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -s 192.168.129.0/24 -j MASQUERADE


Hi All,

I can ping my z and my pc. When I try to ping www.google.com (for example), it says unknown host. What am I missing? Please help. I followed the instructions.
