Zaurus - pdaXrom / Fvwm-pdaxrom 0.4.x
« on: December 18, 2005, 04:31:20 pm »
Does it need to be/is it restarted if the Z is left off for more than 12 hours?  The restart on the default WM at least prevents lockup, but is very annoying as it takes ages to refresh everything and resets to Desktop 1.

Well, I'm using fvwm-pdaxrom for more than a year and I haven't experienced lockups with it. I went through several flashing and RC versions, I used to leave my Z suspended for more than 12 hours but I don't remember about lockups since the RC5 came out (there were stability problems before that).


Zaurus - pdaXrom / Fvwm-pdaxrom 0.4.x
« on: December 18, 2005, 09:00:35 am »
After 5 months and 2 days of developing fvwm-pdaXrom team proudly presents *drumroll*...
...the new pdaXrom tuned Fvwm config files! (to cut down PR costs, this is from the speech of the 0.3.x release )

Download the 0.4.5 release:

Changelog since 0.3.1:
Code: [Select]
fvwm-pdaxrom ChangeLog

0.4.5 (2005-12-18)
    * files are distributed in the system directories, from the
    original /home/root/.fvwm directory
    * everything is home independent, symlink the
    /usr/share/fvwm-pdaxrom/xinitrc file as .xinitrc in an other
    home directory to use the package with another user too
    * added sample config lines to the .fvwm/personal/config file
    to help simple color changes, keybindigs modification

0.4.0 (2005-12-03)
    * updated ztaskbar, graphic battery display in the systray
    * added .fvwm/personal directory where you can store and use
    your altered config files across fvwm-pdaxrom installations
    * you can now edit .fvwm/personal/menutop or menubottom to add
    menu items to the pdaXrom menu more easily
    * added dinamically generated menus to the FvwmRoot menu, so
    you can set or view various things with a click in the menu
    * "Network Schemes" dynamic menu - set or view the active
    network scheme
    * "Volume" dynamic menu
    * "CPU Speed" dynamic menu

Release notes:
Read the welcome message after installing it, for more info.
The package depends on the "fvwm", it's in the official feed of RC12.
Previous topics about older releases: "pdaXrom-Fvwm, more eyecandy, less memory usage" and "Fvwm-pdaxrom 0.3.x, 0.3.1 released"
If you are thinking about "where was the 0.4.0 release...?" then the answer is, nowhere. It was only a pre-release and I made some big changes, so I skipped that one.

Here's a picture about new dynamic menus and the new ztaskbar with graphical battery meter:

Let this be the bugreport thread, so feel free to report bugs here, suggest changes and express delight.
I hope you like all the stuff,

Zaurus - pdaXrom / A Place For User Contributed Stuff
« on: December 17, 2005, 04:17:21 am »
I'll do asap,

Other ideas of needed docs:

- why and howto format the card(s) with unix file system.
- howto make a swap.
- send me your best tweaks

please don't be shy if someone know howto do these things, send me a short text.
[div align=\"right\"][{POST_SNAPBACK}][/a][/div]
I wrote a little FAQ about swap, it's on the [a href=\"]site[/url].

Ps.: Thanks for helping the community this much!

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Fvwm -- Comments?
« on: October 14, 2005, 01:35:20 am »
Yes, you should search for this: Fvwm-pdaxrom 0.3.x, 0.3.1 released.
And it's still compatible with pdaXrom...

For anyone who uses my scripts: I'm working on a new version with dynamic Fvwm menus for setting network profiles, cpu speed, volume. And some more features.


Zaurus - pdaXrom / Octave Anyone?
« on: October 14, 2005, 01:22:07 am »
Octave should be a straight compile assuming you've got GCC 3.xx and g77.

[div align=\"right\"][a href=\"index.php?act=findpost&pid=99179\"][{POST_SNAPBACK}][/a][/div]
The problem is that pdaXrom GCC doesn't have Fortran support. And I wasn't able to compile a fortran -> C compiler when I tried and didn't want to recompile GCC with g77 because it takes a lot time.

Considering these, it will be a hard job to compile Octave for pdaXrom, unless somebody makes a developer toolchain with g77. In the end I used it from a chrooted Debian; it worked well, but it's really slow that way.


Zaurus - pdaXrom / Cut & Paste - Scite & Aterm
« on: October 14, 2005, 01:15:50 am »
editors: emacs!
[div align=\"right\"][a href=\"index.php?act=findpost&pid=99145\"][{POST_SNAPBACK}][/a][/div]
OK, let's start the Holy War:
editors: Vim!

It's strange that emacs guys don't get it that Vim is the ultimate text editor around.  
In case anybody want to try it: Get it from the unstable feed, Use "vimtutor" to get the basic ideas, use the builtin help to learn more. And finally: Enjoy!


Zaurus - pdaXrom / Pdaxrom-builder Rules Update Idea
« on: October 14, 2005, 01:03:20 am »
Sounds great, but that's only an idea. Basically you have to make a new ebuild for new versions in gentoo too, so this builder system is not bad on this part.

If you think that a package should be a better version, then edit its rules and see if the package builds with it. In some cases it does not work. So you have to edit it more. In some cases it works, but it makes other parts of the system not work/not compile.

I guess that's why Sashz doesn't update everything in a release (and why Debian has so damn old packages when it's finally released). But if you edit a rule and it seems to be cleanly built, send the patch/edited files to Sashz, I'm sure that he will look into it if it's stable enough to build the system with it.


Zaurus - pdaXrom / Tab Key In Rc11
« on: October 06, 2005, 02:21:44 am »
I don't think it's connected with the xmodmap files. I'm using a selfmade xmodmap file since RC5 and I haven't changed it, but I noticed the TAB key problem two times now.

I wasn't able to pinpoint how it starts and how to get rid of it (except reboot, that seems to work), or how to trigger the effect (because it usually works okay, only goes bad later).

So if you have any more information about the bug, share it.

RC11, SL-C860

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Kernel Source For Akita C1000
« on: August 02, 2005, 05:26:36 am »
The pdaXrom builder contains the patches and I think it fetches the correct kernel from the net too.
The kernel .config file that you need is here:

Here's the builder:

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Xmms: Max Filesize Video & Fullscreen
« on: July 26, 2005, 06:29:09 am »
Here's a script for recoding and playing videos on Z in 320x240. I hope you find it useful.

I just recoded a 1,5hours movie, it's 168,3MB. This works fine, but I never had bigger files than this.

Zaurus - pdaXrom / New Packages: Kismet And Flite
« on: July 26, 2005, 06:22:56 am »
Rgrep, you are sure you stipped flite from development symbols and removed every not needed stuff from it?
Here's another 1.2 flite ipk:
This package (which contains only the flite binary and works well for me) is only 4,1MB unpacked.

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Falling Back To The Stock Rom... Reasons
« on: July 26, 2005, 06:17:57 am »
2) system (X) crashes nearly every second time after exiting the wm
(matchbox/xfce4). exiting from landscape mode workes without problems, why?
What do you expect it should do?  If you exit from the actual WM, .xinitrc ends, X exits. This is the normal way, it doesn't "crash". Clarify this point please...


Zaurus - pdaXrom / Kathrin Rc10 And Bluetooth Support
« on: July 24, 2005, 05:20:23 pm »
I experienced with the pdaxrom-builder and I built the lastest bluez-libs and utils (well, 2.17, since then there's 2.18). But that was to get my bluetooth mouse to work. It broke the simple ppp configuration so ppp connections had to be made by hand (and BT mouse isn't quite easy to get working, and BT networking is from commandline too)

So I haven't uploaded it here or anything. It's quite easy to compile the new libs natively on Z, as I recall, so try it if you really need it and feel like trying.

I don't really want to publish it here, because it would take as much time to support those who downloaded it that I could also write proper support for it, in pdaxrom-builder or in a form of ipk. But this is not first in my TODO list. (1. make a bricked SL-C700 work again, 2. fvwm-pdaxrom development, 3. enjoying summer holiday)


Zaurus - pdaXrom / We Are Not Dead!
« on: July 21, 2005, 07:13:09 am »
hmmm... so decent speeds in 3D games?

oh, wait... probably a unfulfillable hope 
[div align=\"right\"][a href=\"index.php?act=findpost&pid=89013\"][{POST_SNAPBACK}][/a][/div]
You got 1fps now in battalion and maybe it will be 20% faster.  He doesn't mod an ATi X850 into it, he writes a new driver.

I don't know anyway if it will affect only 2D or 3D. I think only 2D because 3D doesn't accelerated by the video chip. But hopefully X will be more speedy and maybe videos with mplayer will be faster and more resource friendly too (but this last one is only an assumption).

In case anyone was wondering...
[div align=\"right\"][{POST_SNAPBACK}][/a][/div]
Dammit. So it's cold there too. Let's code!

About being dead: I started to update the [a href=\"][/url] site with more up-to-date info, so once again it's interesting to go there and look around.

A little bit of info what Sashz is doing nowadays:
He develops new low level graphics engine/device drivers to Xserver. It will replace aticore and pxa routines in Xservers for corgi, tosa and akita devices and he expects a serious speed improvement from it. (more than 15%)
So to summarize it: new graphics driver will rule.
