General Discussion / The Real Reason Zaurus Lives In All Of Us
« on: June 03, 2005, 11:47:16 am »
This is quite funny as the pxa270 chips already have that nice new DRM stuff in it, as well as stuff to speed up encryption (like ipsec acceleration) (i belive its called secure zone)

now if only someone would take advantage of that in thier software  all you have to do is use the intell performance primitives (under thier license) and iif the target processor is a pxa270 chip then it does all the hard work for you, mmm mabey i should look more into this

i dont mind it as lon as i control the drm, it would be nice to know that i can trust that no one but me has hacked my zaurus (unlikly). i thik i might go looking into the detials of this stuff now

its been mentiond by one pearson that they put a bluetooth adaptor inside a c1000 (could have been in thisthread) but they have yet to mention how they did it and i am quite intrested as well

it would be good to have a usb ost and client port at the same time (pxa270 has 4 usb ports, 3 host, 1 client, one of the host ports can be muxed into place of the usb client port (basically means use the client pins) , the other 2 from emory arnt balanced and so dont meet the usb spec but can still be used for on bard hardware with usb interfaces)

so it is doable that guy just needs to provide some pics to prove it or tell us where the usb host port comes out to so we can solder onto it

sorry to dredge this u again but has there been any more progress on adding more memorey/flash i have see that someone retrofitted another usb socket and i wish i could get more info on the mod but i am more intrested in memorey

i had the same problem, turns out that the cxk just refused to flash with certin flash cards, my sujestion would be to try a new one or go and buy a 32MB card just for flashing, if you took the latter then i recomend a compact flash cards as thier are a lot ok known problems with pdas and certin brands of sd card, the dell axim x3 and several other models would curupt the data just by inserting the card.

hope this helps

i have had to reset my c3k several times because of the stupid home partion filling up and causing me all sorts of problems, then it hit me

why not in the next cacko use unionfs,  put all esential files in rom and allow users to install programs to home which transperently go to the hard drive, that way you can mount home as read only and not have to worry about anything bad happening to it

i could find refrences to it running under 2.4 online in some articles, ethier that or wait till the openzaurus guys get 2.6 working (we have serial console!)

only thing i would really complain about is the lack of wpa (all of my networks use this) and modules,

i understand the modules are a tetsu thing, but i have a 4gig drive: space is no longer an issue so i think it might be a good idea to include these seperatly as an ipkg mabey? or perhaps in the distro itself as half my usb stuff requires hunting for drivers and the modules package that was posted recently has been removed from the guys site (and probely out of date considering the release cycle that tetsu has been keeping up with)

C1000/3x00 General discussions / 6gb Hard Drive Upgrade
« on: May 07, 2005, 07:57:31 am »
just found the option he enabled to speed the drive up all you do is:

insmod  /lib/modules/2.4.20/kernel/arch/arm/mach-pxa/registers.o #echo 33284 > MCIO1

which is the maximum you can go with out hanging  a 6GB device, not the standard one so watch out or you might erase your data, if anyone can confirm for the 4GB model if this works i would apreciate it as i dont want to risk it

cant belive they would charge that much when i can pick it up  for a bit more than half that off ebay

C1000/3x00 General discussions / 6gb Hard Drive Upgrade
« on: May 07, 2005, 07:48:12 am »
now i know you are all going to say you have seen this before, but i mean have you seen the 6GB upgrade? as far as i can remeber it not only uses less power (0.7W max compared to 1W max) but the transfer rate maximum is better (8MB vs 6MB)

aparently acording to the benchmark he never hits the 8MB ceiling however he does fiddle with a regester called MCIO1 or somthing similar (see towards the bottom) that allows for a speed up in the drive. any one know how to do this? i asume its a simple proc setting

oh well, mabey i will just get a 6GB card now instead of waiting for the elesive 10GB model or instead of waiting for the much promised 20GB model due out hopefully next year

anyway here is the link:
all nice and google translated

lol, i didnt even relise that you werent supposed to mix the 18a release with cacko, i have been using this combo scince 18a came out and it seems stable.

the first thing i did notice was the battery stuuf which is excellent and it was perhaps a little more responsive but nothing to boast about, so far no complaints from me

General Discussion / Why 64mb?
« on: April 30, 2005, 03:05:10 am »
besides compiling large programs is there anyone who has any need for more than 64MB of RAM, i like to keep tabs on my memorey and i dont think i have ever come close to using it all

that said thogh i would kill for 128 or even 256 of both flash and ram in my c3000.

after reading the sdram data sheets of several manufactrers i noticed that if you are not using the ram (ie reading and writeing) but are just refresing then the power consumption is quite low. its only when activity begins that the power goes up. another intresting thing is that reads as far as i know are destructive and the data has to be rewritten back to the cell during a read meaing that reads take as much power or in some cases more power than a write

feel free to correct me if i am wrong, this infomation was gleened from reading the sdram data sheets from a few manufacteres and only applies to "low power" sdram chips for use in the mobile market, i didnt read up on the normal chips (see for a detalied description of how dram works or even"

Security and Networking / Crypted Filesystem
« on: April 30, 2005, 02:51:35 am »
yep that should be all you need, i belive in the 2.6 kernels you had to have the aes module compiled into or as a module for it to work but i am unsure for 2.4, if it works post it up i would like to try it again

i ten to prefer the losetup to burp as i can encrypt a partion transperently without having to wory about it to much, one other option could be the use of pgp to encrypt the files, this is normally the prefered soulotion for those people who dont use losetup on thier machine (handy if you dont have root accsess)
