Sharp ROMs / Usb Tcp/ip Configuration
« on: March 08, 2006, 09:47:32 pm »
Running Cacko ROM. Configured USB networking. Can successfully ping each way etc. However I can no longer go in and edit the ip configuration. If I go to Settings -> Network the connection does not show up under Services and when I click on Current there are "No available service." How do I make changes to my USB configuration now?

General Discussion / Questions About My New Zaurus
« on: March 05, 2006, 10:04:21 pm »
I have a few quick questions. I just ordered a SL-C1000 from Can't wait to get it. While I'm waiting I'm trying to research different options.

I currently have a SL-5000 so I am familiar with using a Zaurus.

1) What are the major differences between the Cacko ROM and PDAXROM?

2) From my research I think I want to go with the PDAXROM. How difficult is it to install Pocketworkstation on the SL-C1000 with PDAXROM? The instructions on the Pocketworkstation site don't mention the SL-C1000. Just want to make sure there's no major hurdles to overcome.

3) Openoffice. Is it true that the only way to run is by installing Pocketworkstation.

4) Screen protectors. My 5000 is using a screen protector from On their site they only mention the SL-C760. Is the screen protector the same for both models? I did email the company but they're a little slow with responses to queries. Unless somebody has recommendations for a better screen protector?

5) Password software. I'm currently using zsafe for keeping track of my passwords etc. Does anybody have any recommendations for a good password management software? I really like the look of keepass but I don't think there's a zaurus version available. Or could I run it under Pocketworkstation?

Sorry if these questions are answered already somewhere else. I've been reading until my eyes start to bleed and I'm a little confused about a few things.

Thanks in advance.

For Sale / Wanted / WANTED: SL-5000 Battery (NEW) in Canada
« on: October 20, 2004, 07:38:04 pm »
I've been searching high and low for somebody who has these batteries in Canada, with zero luck.

All the searches I do online only return results for for $39.99 which will not ship to Canada.

I would prefer to deal with a Canadian company so I don't get screwed on the duties and fees to get it across the border.


General Discussion / Installing to CF or SD?
« on: September 22, 2004, 12:26:29 am »
I'm running OZ 3.3.5 and I read somewhere that you can install apps on the CF or SD cards but I can't seem to figure out what to do. Are there any How-tos on how to do this?

General Discussion / Can't mount CF or SD cards
« on: September 16, 2004, 11:04:03 pm »
Just purchased a used SL-5000D. Came with the 16MB CF and a 64MB SD card.

When I do a 'mount' it doesn't show the cards.

If I do a 'mount /dev/cf' it says 'mount: /dev/hda1: unknown device'

I also get the same sort of error with 'mount /mnt/card'

The unit is using OpenZaurus 3.3.5.

Also if I manually remove the CF card it does pop up "Ejected: ATA/IDE Fixed Disk" and it does detect the card when its reinserted.

I'm a total Zaurus newbie here. I'm sure I'm missing something.

Any suggestions?

I've also tried doing a mkfs.msod /dev/hda1 and it says there's 'No such device or address'.

Any help you could give would be greatly appreciated.

PS I also looked into the unit and I don't see any bent pins, etc.
