C1000/3x00 General discussions / Speculation: 6gb C3100?
« on: March 08, 2005, 05:14:43 pm »
I was going to say "no, you can't", but then I realized that I don't know which profile the Z hard drive connector uses.

It uses the second PCMCIA/CF slot, which of course is internal in the SL-3000. All Zauruses in fact have the ability to support a 2nd CF slot, just run 'cardctl ident' and you'll see it empty on all models apart from the SL-3000 and maybe a 6000 with a sled. Only the SL-3000 has the extra connector internally and I think maybe the 6000 uses this for the sled with the extra CF slot.

iPods are already out with 40GB versions - where are the PDA-type devices with that kind of capacity?

Sharp ROMs / Sharp Rom For Uk Zaurus
« on: March 03, 2005, 06:15:27 pm »
Like I said, I have a UK 5500 with the 3.1 ROm and the current keys work as before.

Remember you must press AND release FN, then press Shift+3/4

General Discussion / Is There Anybody Out There?

I'd have to agree that UK plugs & sockets are somewhat larger and more cumbersome than those in the U.S. and for that matter many other parts of Europe - however the UK earth (ground) is not bonded to the neg line, which is the case in U.S. & also some European countries, this is in-turn often spiked into the mud. (lol)

Unless I'm mistaken, I have seen 3 prong US plugs in a similar arrangement to the UK plug (They just added an extra, round prong, making a triangle shape) and the 3rd prong is an earth. Of course you need US sockets that have a 3rd hole too, but most do.

Getting a bit further off-topic, but I prefer UK plugs to US plugs. I find that US plugs and sockets easily wear out and get loose, so that the plug either easily falls out or worse, it comes half way out, exposing the live metal prongs (my wife is American so I've spent a lot of time in the US). There's reasons why the UK plug is so awkward. First the earth prong has to open the live and neutral holes, which prevents kids from sticking utensils in the sockets and secondly the tight fit holds it firmly in place.

General Discussion / Shirtpocket Troubles?
« on: March 01, 2005, 06:45:50 am »
Plenty of people have bought from Shirtpocket without any problem (myself included). You are always going to find someone who has had a problem and of course they'll be the loudest because they're not happy.

I was in fairly regular contact with zuber up until the end of December. I was wondering where he had gone. I am guessing it is taking longer than expected to sort out the new office and internet connection etc etc.

Security and Networking / New Bluetooth Drivers

I have no problem to use this card on my laptop Toshiba Satellite 1115-S103 with SUSE 9.2.

What does 'cardctl ident' give for your card? The BT2000E card is supported. The BT2000C card is not. The BT2000C card is the later card.

C1000/3x00 General discussions / Bluetooth On The Sl-3000?

Have a look at /etc/apm.d/bluetooth . That is the script that does the business. I was told that the Socket Rev G card can be brought back simply by running 'cardctl resume'

I have uploaded version 0.9.3 of the susp-resume-bluez package which should resume serial based cards such as the Socket Rev G properly.

Software / Flash Card Program (not Cf)
« on: February 28, 2005, 04:52:05 am »
That's what ELSI is for. A quick search for flash cards turned this up: . Although I don't know how good it is.

When it says that it requires Opie, I think it probably only needs libopie

Security and Networking / Network/bluetooth Connectivity Pass Thru To Pc
« on: February 27, 2005, 06:50:05 pm »
Sorry, but I'm not sure what exactly you want.

Do you want to simply establish a network connection between your PC and Zaurus? Instructions for that can be found here: . Both the DUN/PPP connection and PAN connection will give you a standard TCP/IP network connection.

Or do you want to share your PC's internet connection to your Zaurus? In Windows, you can turn on internet connection sharing (plenty of help for this in Windows Help or on the web), which will share the specified internet connection with any other LAN connection. This means you would have to setup a PAN Bluetooth connection between your Zaurus and PC. If you want to use a PPP/DUN Bluetooth connection then you would have to install a 3rd party application on your PC that can share PPP connections with other network connections.

I'm afraid the latest Ambicom BT CF card still isn't supported at all. There are no Linux drivers for it.

In any case, instructions for setting up Bluetooth can be found here

Software / How Do I Play Flash On A Webpage?
« on: February 26, 2005, 10:45:42 am »
If you search the forums for flash, I think you'll find there is a standalone player for *old* flash files. I think it only supports something like v4.

Konqueror doesn't have any native ability to play flash files. Even on the desktop it uses the Netscape/Mozilaa plugin.

It completely locks up. I need to remove the battery to restart. When I first had my C700, it seemed much more stable. It became unstable after many new apps were installed. I assumed an app. was causing the problem and that it would go away on a clean C3000. I was wrong.

Hmmm. I have never experienced this and I have not heard anyone else report this with the Socket Rev F card. Perhaps you have a faulty card?
