Zaurus - pdaXrom / Installed Pdaxrom, Think I Already Messed It Up
« on: December 05, 2006, 02:20:53 pm »
I too have run into the original posted problem - a few days ago I noticed that I only had one destination available for installations, where I was sure there had previously been several. 

Then the following day there are NO destinations, NO packages available, NO packages listed as installed.

ipkg from command line is helpless as well.

Turns out that /etc/ipkg.conf is empty...  Don't know how it managed that, but if someone could post ipkg.conf from r121 I'd really appreciate it...

I know that early versions of the graphical package manager were pretty hopeless and I recall similar problems to this being caused by it - perhaps this is still the case? You can use the command line tool quite happily (once /etc/ipkg.conf is rebuilt). As far as I know all versions use the same layout for the file:

Code: [Select]
dest root /
(With as many src and dest entries as you like)

Zaurus - pdaXrom / How Do I Print To A Networked Printer?
« on: December 03, 2006, 07:10:35 pm »
Please don't get me wrong... the file I attached was the default it came with. Honest folks, nothing to do with me. I just want something that works. To hell with security and all. So is what you posted the full thing or some little snippet?

Just want a cupsd.conf that will allow me to print to any cups printer that is willing to accept jobs from the local network.

Thanks for the interest.

That's cool - yes that's the entire file, so try it and see if it works

paste you cupsd.conf here... I will look at it...

[div align=\"right\"][a href=\"index.php?act=findpost&pid=147290\"][{POST_SNAPBACK}][/a][/div]

I have  attached my cupsd.conf here (says .txt coz it wouldn't let me upload .conf).
Really it is now back to tne default because the last thing I tried was swopping in one from my OSX, which was a non-starter.

Thanks for any help.

I'm not sure where the @LOCAL etc are defined...? My cupsd.conf is pretty simple for the Zaurus (comments omitted):

Code: [Select]
LogLevel none
PreserveJobHistory No
Port 631

Order Deny,Allow
Deny From All
Allow From

AuthType Basic
AuthClass System
Order Deny,Allow
Deny From All
Allow From
... and it works fine for me. Try starting with a really basic config file like this and working your up to a more complex config if that's what you're after.

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Voice Recording Tool For Pdaxrom?
« on: November 30, 2006, 05:18:39 pm »
What voice recording tool can you recommend  which runs under pdaXrom and has a GUI?
Is there any such tool available in the feeds?

[div align=\"right\"][a href=\"index.php?act=findpost&pid=147632\"][{POST_SNAPBACK}][/a][/div]
Xromer's feed has gpe-soundbite - it's not flash, but the last version I tried did actually work, so it's a start if nothing else is available.

You are right!! I forgot I installed atd in order to get the alarm working for KO/Pi.
Uninstalling atd sethwclock works again.
So how does atd cause such as problem?
Is there a way to resolve the conflict between atd and the system clock?
If not, then I will have to give up using KO/Pi...
[div align=\"right\"][a href=\"index.php?act=findpost&pid=147628\"][{POST_SNAPBACK}][/a][/div]
You don't need to uninstall atd (or give up ko/pi) - just stop the service ('/etc/rc.d/init.d/atd stop') before running sethwclock, then start it ('/etc/rc.d/init.d/atd start') again after. You probably want to add this to the scripts that run sltime, sethwclock etc.

atd locks the clock because it is constantly using it - stopping it for a second to access the clock and starting it again shouldn't be a hassle.

In Search Of:

Same story: 
Code: [Select]
# hwclock --directisa
Cannot access the Hardware Clock via any known method.
Use the --debug option to see the details of our search for an access method.

But thanks anyway.

Are you sure the clock isn't locked/in use by something like atd?

Browsers since there is not one single killer browser yet. if only minimo was properly developed by its devs and made to work efficiently on linux rather than wince. does anybody use the old konqueror embedded browser which does not require kde installed?
After Diesel1's post I decided to try Minimo again, but it doesn't really ring my bells. I think it is probably better to get some of the kinks ironed out of dillo for fast browsing, and wait for Firefox to load for feature-rich browsing.

PIM is something I have not used much at all and would like to hear more from people on what they use and why, what features they use/need, etc.
This is an area where speed is essential - kopi would be great but it just isn't there when I need it! gpe apps are my preference, but I would guess that most people here just use the first thing they can get working alarms with!

- financial apps: grisbi, homebank, gnucash? anymore?
I used homebank for a bit and found it quite nice - I'm not disciplined enough to keep it up though!

One of the biggest reasons for having a Zaurus is using general Linux shell tools etc - you don't need fancy applications when you can ssh, scp, cat, grep, tail your way around! Not to mention being able to write your own scripts to perform whatever function isn't available from a standard package. pdaXrom certainly isn't the only Linux distribution that does this, but it's the most transparent, easy to work with and closer to what you find on other machines. I can change things to work the way *I* want. (Can you tell I'm a Slackware fan from way back?  )

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Holy Moly - Zaurus Cannot Find Half Of My Programs
« on: November 28, 2006, 01:20:49 am »
I installed SCITE from one of the feeds (I only had official and contrib feeds) and then soon "rm" "find" "touch" "chgrp" "dmesg" etc was not found!!


INIT: cannot execute "/sbin/getty"
All of those programs including getty are handled by busybox (you *should* see them as symlinks to /bin/busybox).

If you can get into a rescue mode prompt somehow, I guess you'd start by checking whether either busybox is missing or the symlinks are gone and replacing these. It seems really strange that installing a package would do that sort of damage though! Hopefully you don't have many files missing!

Good luck

Zaurus - pdaXrom / How Do I Print To A Networked Printer?
« on: November 25, 2006, 03:31:39 pm »

I've installed CUPS and have the same problem.

I also find that it won't let me configure the printer I have installed - permission denied, though it did let me go through the installing a printer process. It also accepts my password to let me delete jobs.

It does show printers on the network, but nothing actually gets processed.
[div align=\"right\"][a href=\"index.php?act=findpost&pid=147202\"][{POST_SNAPBACK}][/a][/div]
If you're getting 'permission denied' errors then it is most likely the settings in the cups configuration file - note that there are two areas permissions need to be given (one for using printers, one for admin).

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Howto Mount A Systc100.dbk
« on: November 24, 2006, 03:40:58 pm »
Is this idea possible at all?  When I try to mount a (would be) jffs2 fs over loopback I get this in the system log:

Nov 24 10:11:46 diva kernel: JFFS2 version 2.1. © 2001 Red Hat, Inc., designed by Axis Communications AB.
Nov 24 10:11:46 diva kernel: jffs2: attempt to mount non-MTD device 07:00

which seems to indicate that unless the jffs2 image is sitting on an appropriate physical medium then it is just not going to work?  But your previous posts clearly indicate that you have done exactly this in the past.  How?  Are there some special options you can pass to the mount so as to force it?
[div align=\"right\"][{POST_SNAPBACK}][/a][/div]
You can't mount a jffs2 image over loopback:

(I'm sure someone has covered this in the forum here, but I couldn't find it, so the link above is the first one I found with Google...)

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Hda/hdc Assignment
« on: November 23, 2006, 09:12:14 pm »
MD is  /dev/hda if NO CF during boot
MD is /dev/hdc if CF during boot.
What if you insert CF after boot? Can you guarantee which is which simply by changing the order in which the startup files load drivers?
[div align=\"right\"][a href=\"index.php?act=findpost&pid=147119\"][{POST_SNAPBACK}][/a][/div]

if you insert CF after boot, it will be hdc because hda has been assigned to MD

the logic is that the first device on the bus will be given hda, the second will be given hdc. this is done dynamically at boot up and handled by the kernel.
[div align=\"right\"][a href=\"index.php?act=findpost&pid=147123\"][{POST_SNAPBACK}][/a][/div]
I guess what I said would have made more sense if they weren't both using the same bus, huh? Sorry...  

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Even If Simple Alarm In Pdaxrom?
« on: November 23, 2006, 08:47:15 pm »
It looks like this alarm idea was given up on, has anyone out there got pdax to wake up successfully at a given time? Would be a nice feature especially if it could be used with gpe-calendar or something like it...
[div align=\"right\"][a href=\"index.php?act=findpost&pid=147110\"][{POST_SNAPBACK}][/a][/div]
It was fixed with kernel patches from beta1 (I think?) onward. All you need is a program that sets alarms - ko/pi does it directly through apm scripts, and gpe-calendar uses atd (which I prefer and seems more reliable).

The only problem is that gpe-calendar versions for beta1/beta3 have broken alarm functions! Search this forum for another topic somewhere which describes how to fix it if you go this way.

Hi all. I am using Minimo for browsing at the moment.

How is it for speed and rendering pages correctly compared to dillo?

Browsers: Dillo (since it works best for most things), Firefox (slow but most feature rich),  links, lynx, others?
This one is still a bit of an in-between, with Dillo too basic and Firefox too slow to start.

Email: Sylpheed! Thunderbird is a bit slow in comparison, what else?
Absolutely - Sylpheed is great.

Text Editor: does anyone use scite? or does everyone prefer leadpad? or even vim? what else?
I use SciTE because it does syntax highlighting - I would use vim, but I've never got it working 100% with my settings...

PIM: KOPI/KAPI?, what else?
gpe-calendar is a great simple app provided you can get a version with working alarms. Much faster too.

Media Players: xmms, mplayer
xmms hasn't annoyed me enough to use anything else yet - just don't suspend while it's playing from files on CF/SD

File Managers: rox, emelfm? what else?
aterm is much faster...

Other Tools: xarchiver, gps, kchmviewer, scrot, tuxcards ?
Tuxcards, pptp, xournal
