Gemini PDA - Android / Putty or other SSH client
« on: March 09, 2018, 01:26:15 am »
Quote from: zevv
Did anyone maybe test if putty or any other SSH client behaves well on the Gemini and its keyboard?

Just got mine about 8 hours ago and put about an hour into the keyboard. Once i screwed around with the keyboard settings so i could actually type "@" it was a fairly good thumb experience, for the extra characters you can hit the planet + , key to bring up the stnadard google keyboard (or any other installed keyboard) and this defaults to special symbols

I have yet to do some coding on this and while i wont be at full speed (and do not expect to) it is infinetly more usable than the built in touch screen keyboards of other machines

the plnet bar includes a link for juicessh which i happened to have purchased recently due to how happy i was with it for humb typing

It has been many years but after looking further into the technical information around the gemini i found that not only is back up and running, but it seems to  be the center for a lot of gemini discussion

For those who don't remember me, i (attempted) to kick off the pocket penguin (gemini like and beyond my skill level) and posted continuously (Looks like i am still in the top #10 highest posters)

The last couple of years has seen me compiling bleeding edge linux kernels and patching them to get kernels running on chromebooks and documenting this where appropriate. I plan to do similar things for the gemini.

Looking forward to getting everything working.

i have a kohjinsha thats the same as the peperpad v3. i would say its zippier than most people expect and i dont have to worry about turning it off for a 100M dash (all solid state now )

if you have something i can compile to test how fast it is i can do that for you, note that i dont have an arm compiler for it atm so it may effect results.

bluetooth and wifi built in, get one with a broken screen and you are in buisness. keep it in the bag left on (its low heat) and just charge it when you get to work (i get 4 hrs minimum on one charge)

looks great till you add up the price with all the features and the mark up on single units (2.5x)

work is under way, there is a new guy on board who i have been talking to and has really gotten the ball rolling again, time will tell.

i think by the time its done there will be more powerful units but i think the feature set of this design will make up for it, that and the curveballs i am throwing into the design, as i have said in private i am building this machine to last. i refuse to skimp on the quality of components

of course wait till i produce somthing first at the moment im all talk

dont know if its an option but cant you write a wrapper script to scp to your home pc, compile there and then rsync the data back?

there are days when my Z or kohjinsha are underpowered and i just use a 3G mobile with a data plan to connect to my home PC for heavy lifting

i might be able to whip somthing up for you using rsync and ssh if you want

*** EDIT ***

Noticed the low reception problem, ignore post, seems i came up with the same ideas everyone else did

unless you want a beowolf of 1000's  i mean who wouldnt

or baring that, a debian slug cluster and distcc, they chew a bit of power but with a bit of modification you can get the boot time down to where you only need to turn it on when you need to

As someone who spends alot of time in hospitals i can honestly say that my zaurus and kohjinsha are sanity savers

get well soon and keep sain. i know how it feels

if you have a wince mobile then look out for the internet sharing program, connecting to that over bluetooth is as simple as

pand -c <bt mac>
/sbin/dhclient bnep0

its great if you dont want to fiddle with dial strings

it sounds like your best off contacting me directtly

the qemu stuff sounds alright but writing saftware to emulate the hardware would be more work than neessacry, i would rather spend more cash on hardware and push out several prototypes

as for your needs, it almost looks like a subset of what i had in mind  i had planned to attach a CF card off of the ATA interface but with the way that SD cards are going it might be even better for me to drop that and go SD for the root FS. ethier way it wouldnt be too hard to have both

just PM me and i will send you more details about how to contact me

most of the schematic is in my head still, at the moment learning geda is my biggest priority ever scince i learnt that it does have autorouting

i am not 100% sure what you meant by the qemu, if you meant connecting the chips to a qemu processor through a bus or writing drivers for each chip to confirm that the drivers on the virtual cpu work

ethier way it looked like to much work for too little gain

feel free to contact me through alternative means if you want, also would you mind filling out teh details on your media player?

as i said most of the good zytel modems allow for a backup wan line, you basically need one of them and another modem that automatically logs in on the modem side and gets an ip from dhcp on the lan side

you the zytel where the backup wan line is (ie ip address ) and if the line drops it reroutes packets, note that this can be a BAD thing with long running sessions as your external IP address will change meaning things like msn, yahoo chat, ssh, skype and ongoing SIP calls will drop

in the case of ssh once the primary line comes back up as long as you didnt close the sesion all will resumae as nothing happened but its best not to rely on that

not sure what you mean by distributing the two lines, do you mean bond the lines together for high avalability and or more bandwidth, if so some of the zytel modes support this (i have one here) you basically hook one up to each line then designate one as a secondary link and set it up on the primarys web based setup page, this gets you high availability but not load balancing

as for cabeling, cat5 is the way to go, if you want gigabit and you have long runs then you may need cat 6 but most of the time cat5 is pasable (you can test it by laying it down before hand

so to sum up you need:
Cabel (cat5)
wall jacks for said cabel
a switch
a router
a modem (or two)

note that the switch, modem and router can be combined into the one item (like the linksys boxes), the plus with these is that they have basic filtering, if you need something better then you could replace the router with a linux boxes and one of the security distros, they are point and click these days (over a web interface) but its a good idea to have a firm understanding in networking and linux beforehand

anyway to answer the originol question about distributing the 2 broadband connections, once you have them sorted out about how they will talk to eachother and do what you want (HA or load balence) then thats it, you iwll only need the one jack to each room and the switch/router will take care of all the multiplexing of the data to the right line

btw, do you need 2 lines? if so of what type are they

i do have some stuff but its rough, and not yet anywhere near for release

as for the case, its always been a major problem with this project, i have a design that i am very very happy with but getting it built is another story

btw i joind the arm-linux lists and it appears that there are a couple of iMX.3 boards out theer i have never heard of, when i get a chance i will look into it

dont know if its handy to anyone but i did have a chkhinge script that turns the PDA off when the lid is clesed but not if my music was playing

also have another one to pause the music when you close the lid and suspend (otherwise when i resumed it and had removed the headphones the teded to be a bit of embaressment)
