Zaurus - pdaXrom / Sl-c1000/c3100 Rc12 Test

Ok, good news.  About the second I pushed "Add Reply" to my last post, my Z's screen flashed a couple of times, and now I'm sitting at a login promt...  No scrolling boot messages, no anything...  just a "zaurus login: " at the top of the screen...  

Logged in and every thing seems normal...  I have no idea what happened.  Anyone want to guess?

I'm afraid I may have a bricked C1000.  I'm not sure if it has anything to do with this release of pdaxrom, but I did install it last night, just before my Z died.  Everything seemed to work very well, but I turned the Z off and left it untill this morning.  Now, when I push the on button I get nothing.  Only the orange power light.  I have tried a reset, and left the batteriers out for a while, and tried again, but still nothing.  If anyone has any ideas I would appricated it.  Like I said I don't know if the problem was caused by this release or not, but it was the only thing I know of that I did.

Great setup, I think I might try to copy it.  

I think the simplest way to handle the keyboard setup is by making two keymaps.  A simple script can switch the two when you want.  I can set you up with the script if you need.  I don't have the keyboard so you will have to hack out a keymap.

Also don't worry about the mouse LED, they don't draw enough power to notice. I think you can light a few types up with a potato battery.

I thought I would start off with my own video link.   Some of the trailors on work to different degrees.  

Is any one else excited about the Aeon Flux movie?
Sound seemed to stop a second or two into the video, then even after reloading it... no sound.

Anyone know why video playback is worse on my C1000 with a 400+mhz processor, then it was on my 200mhz SL5500?  Is it the overhead of running X?  It's not much better in console mode with mplayer?

Thanks for the tip...
I haven't tried any .ogm files, I don't have any.

I had trouble getting Firefox to play nicely with video.  I worked out a solution that does the job, well almost ...  Although I'm sure we will have a better solution soon the following is at best a stop gap solution.

Install VLC, with your package manager of choice
---If you want music as well, I recomend you install xmms also.
(Install Firefox, if you havn't already done so)

Set up a swap (I used a 64M swapfile on a throw away sd card...  swap on an SD card will destroy it quicky)

a.  Fire up firefox, and open two tabs
b.   Tab one type about:config in your addressbar and hit enter
c.   put  " general.useragent.vendorSub " in the filter box
d.   Double tap the only line
e.   Change value to 1.0.4

Go to the second tab and pull up
(leave the first tab open)

Return to the first tab and change the " general.useragent.vendorSub "  value back to 1... and close the tab

Click install extenstion.

--You may have to set firefox to allow the site to install the extension, if this is the case don't panic, its easy.  The on screen instructions will guide you.

Wait untill its finished installing.

close firefox and restart it.

At this point to new extention will load with firefox.  A screen will pop up and search for media players.  Make sure it finds VLC for video formats.  Maybe play with some of VLC's settings to get it to play a little smoother.  (Tip: F key = fullscreen)

Thats it.

Let me know if you need more keypress by keypress directions...

Also it would be cool if we could get some follow up posts with links to sites with videos that work well with VLC... it is so slow.  

Any tips on speeding up VLC?
