New products and alternatives / Pandora Is Starting To Really Interest Me
« on: September 03, 2008, 10:01:23 pm »
Damn, I think I might be sold - held off on the gp2x, held off on the eee and all the other netbooks, but this is harder to resist...

Debian / Weird Wifi Card Issue In Eabi
« on: August 31, 2008, 08:56:44 pm »
Your generated udev rules are probably out of whack; try deleting the /etc/udev/rules.d/z25_persistent-net.rules file and then reinserting the card.

General Discussion / Can Someone Please Explain To Me...

Sure, there have been developer previews of Android, but there isn't one phone actually on sale running it yet. I doubt they'll call it "released" until after that happens.

And the Openmoko repository is at

General Discussion / Can Someone Please Explain To Me...

It took me all of 30 seconds to find the source for openmoko and qtopia with google; and android is simply not released yet (and should be under the Apache License when it is.) So I'm not sure what the problem is.

Site Suggestions, Requests, and Updates / Problems Starting Up Ff7 Rom

Not only do you have the wrong forum,  I'm pretty sure you're on the completely wrong site for such a question (since to the best of my knowledge ePSXe doesn't run on the Zaurus, and has nothing to do with OESF...)

Debian / Debian Eabi Power Issues
« on: August 05, 2008, 02:11:39 am »
Wifi annoyingly doesn't have power-saving enabled by default; you have to issue something like "iwconfig wlan0 power 1" to turn it on. Doing that made a massive difference on my Z; in fact I can't tell the difference in runtime between a wifi card in powersave mode (but still being used) and having no wifi card inserted at all!

6000 - Tosa / Unit Stops Responding (input)
« on: July 23, 2008, 11:48:54 pm »
I had that problem with pdaXrom - if I changed the time significantly, keyboard and tap detection would stop working until I either reset the Z or sshed in and restarted X.

I seem to recall pdaxrom having a kludge in the restore script because if too much time passed between suspend and resume you'd hit this. Something to do with a buggy timeout in the select() call?

Debian / Dualbooting/multiplebooting With Kexec!
« on: July 15, 2008, 02:44:19 am »
The solution is exactly the same as for my pdaxrom kexec fix - you need to recompile the sharprom kernel with the correct NAND layout information hardcoded in it, otherwise it only sees a truncated filesystem.

Debian / Usb Power Issues
« on: July 15, 2008, 02:41:53 am »
There's no point in changing the kernel if you haven't done the power mod; the hardware will forcibly power off any USB device which tries to draw more than that. If a usb device is requesting more current than it actually draws then it's better to override it using a udev rule.

The power mod involves changing the resistor which sets the overcurrent protection limit (currently at 150mA) - the info is buried somewhere in albertr's internal bluetooth/wifi mod thread.

The udev trick is the way to go, see my old post:

C1000/3x00 General discussions / Zaurus Oscilloscope
« on: June 29, 2008, 09:00:08 pm »
Well the syscomp features adjustable pre and post trigger capturing, which is what you want. If you can detect the goto "wonking out" quickly enough, then you can use that as the trigger input, and show what was captured just prior to the triggering.

Sharp ROMs / Occasionally Need To Reboot To Start Charging Process!
« on: June 29, 2008, 08:52:45 pm »
Does it keep doing that if you unplug-replug the power cable, without the reboot? And how old is your battery?

Debian / Graphics Acceleration And Xrandr
« on: June 28, 2008, 10:56:50 am »
Portrait is the native orientation of the LCD. There isn't hardware acceleration for rotation in the cxxxx's AFAIK, so in landscape mode everything is rotated 90 degrees in software.

Hardware Mods / Pimp Your Zaurus: 1gbyte Nand Flash Upgrade
« on: June 17, 2008, 02:23:31 am »
The RAM upgrade is hard simply because it's in a BGA package which needs hot-air rework equipment and no fear. I seem to recall Maslovsky had a few done.

Accessories / Can I Really Use Psp Adapter To Zaurus?
« on: June 13, 2008, 02:51:24 am »
The amp rating shouldn't matter, *if the adaptor is regulated*. I've even used 100mA adapters successfully.

Don't use an unregulated supply - they can put out higher voltages than they are rated at if they are lightly loaded, and your Z will be toasted.
