New products and alternatives / Pandora Is Starting To Really Interest Me

I'm actually sort of hoping to ditch my N810 for one. The N810's hardware is mismade in a good deal of ways that aren't readily visible (sound access, graphics acceleration, wi-fi drivers, power management, etc.), and the Pandora seems much better.

lol.... you just convinced me not to get a N810 and wait for this

Good thing about having an eeepc sub-forum here ... the folks here are way more savvy!  

That and all the names here are familiar.   Everyone that has posted on this thread are regulars.

Nice... I think I may buy a black one for myself.  My wife is using hers and won't let me touch it.  I guess that's cool cause if I did take it over it's like buying her a fishing rod for Christmas .  The more I think about it I am using my Z less like a pocket pda or pc and backpacking it more.

I just got the Eee from Archimark for my wife.  The little guy is pretty cool so far.  Since it's her Christmas gift I cant' really customize it too much but I must say the web pages render great.  I was able to load Gimp and customize the easy GUI pretty quickly.  For less than $400 I thought it was a great buy.  The keyboard is pretty tight but I'm able to type on it pretty good.  I just have to get used to the backspace and shift keys.

General Discussion / 6000 Battery Bulge. Keep 6000 Or Sell?
« on: November 19, 2007, 01:58:45 pm »

trisoft can get hold of 6000 batteries at a not-insane price.

there's been some recent activity in Angstrom for Tosa, so the device isn't a dead duck.

when I get my act together and create an installer for TomTom to allow you to put in your TomTom x00 sd card into the Z and use the Z as a sat-nav, the 6000 might have a new lease of life.

the 6000 would also make a neat multimedia controller/player in your car, get a wifi enabled hard drive (Asus WLL-2.5R or Dlink GDSM600 thin) put in the boot of your car, SMB mount it and play MP3s via the zaurus!

Dang good idea since I have the car mount and FM transmitter for my C1K.  You said "boot" of your car... that's such a UK term...  

Off Topic forum / Looking For A Gaming Console
« on: November 17, 2007, 11:34:03 am »
I sort of inherited a psp from my sister.  I found that the games can be really cheap if you get them used and also renting them isnt bad.  PSP's are also good for music and pictures if you load them on the magic gate stick.  As a side note power supplies and some radio transmitters will also work on your Z  .  

If you have more than one kid it might be tough to share one psp between the two.  If that is the case a wii might be better.  I've been talking to families where the parents get really invloved with the games because of simple games and wireless controller play.  

Hope that helps a bit

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Wifi Probs, No Connection, Hostap Not Loading (fixed)
« on: November 17, 2007, 03:57:35 am »

Here's what I did and my wifi connection seems to be working now, and works with WPA.
The wifi icon on the taskbar only shows one yellow square, (but it may be lying to me)

I commented out all entries in /etc/pcmcia/config that have matching manfid numbers to my card.
Then uncommented my Ambicom card, (if it was commented out).

I got hostap loading by doing the following:
I edited /etc/pcmcia/hermes.conf. I added these lines near the top of the file:
device "hostap_cs"
  class "hermes"
  module "hostap", "hostap_cs"

Then find the definition for your card (further down in that file) and change the "orinoco_cs" reference to "hostap_cs". The definition for my card nows looks like this:
card "AmbiCom WL1100C 802.11b CF-Card"
  version "AmbiCom", "WL1100C 802.11b CF-Card", "2.2"
  manfid 0xd601, 0x0002
  bind "hostap_cs"

After editing /etc/pcmcia/hermes.conf, eject your card and restart the PCMCIA services:
cardctl eject 0
<remove card>
/etc/rc.d/init.d/pcmcia restart
<insert card>

At this point my connection was flaky when connecting with wifi-radar, so I did more tweaking.

1. I'm not sure if this action helped. I opened up /etc/pcmcia/hostap_cs.conf
I commented out all entries that matched my card, and then added my card info near the top.
My card info was NOT originally in this file.
card "AmbiCom WL1100C 802.11b CF-Card"
  version "AmbiCom", "WL1100C 802.11b CF-Card", "2.2"
  manfid 0xd601, 0x0002
  bind "hostap_cs"

2. This may be what helped to stabilize my connection. I now use the "Network Settings" app to connect, that is only  accessable through meanie's pdaxii13.config. It is located here:
/usr/bin/network.cfg (not
This app allows you to setup WPA and also has a connect button. I placed a shortcut on my desktop and just connect with this network Settings app. All seems to be working fine now with my wifi connection.
I have been surfing for about an hour and have not been disconnected.

Jon J you are da man!!!!    I noticed that my card would not respond at all until i added

card "AmbiCom WL1100C 802.11b CF-Card"
  version "AmbiCom", "WL1100C 802.11b CF-Card", "2.2"
  manfid 0xd601, 0x0002
  bind "hostap_cs"

to the /etc/pcmcia/host_cs.conf file.  Once that was entered all was working well with the card now.  Thanks buddy...
