Zaurus - Hardware discussion / Re: Which CF WIFI card is supported.

Been a few years, but I'm pretty sure I was using the DLink card when I used Arch Linux ARM.

Thnaks. Finally I choose the DLink DCF 660w card, but I still can not make it work on ZALARM.
The 660w card is known to work on ArchLinuxARM and Void Linux.You need to use the correct driver and firmware for it to work.

More details in my response in this thread

Looks like the above link is broken.
Varti, could you repair it ?

Hi all,

I recently acquired a Sharp SL-C1000, and after much trouble,
I was able to flash the ROM to Cacko 1.23 ROM, and update the
SDHC drivers to recognize a 32GB SDHC card now.

The next thing to deal with is internet connection, and I also acquired
a few wifi and LAN CF cards from Japan:

(i)  Planex Communications CF-10T CF Ethernet adapter card
(ii) Planex Communications GW-CF54G 54Mbps wireless CF adapter
(iii) Buffalo Airstation WLI2-CF-S11 2.4GHz/11Mbps wifi CF Card

However, none of them seem to work.

Does anybody has experience using the above network cards and
set up the connection via wifi or LAN ?

BTW, what browser are you used?
The Netfront browser looks very old.......

Thanks Varti!

The 32GB SD card is recognized now after I delete all partitions, and do a
FAT32 formatting again.

Also, is there a way to use i3wm instead of lxqt ? sddm seems not to recognise i3, but if I switch to lightdm, i can login to i3 session...
The login screen does allow the choice of different window managers or desktop environments. It looks in /usr/share/xsessions for those choices. You can create your own in that directory for i3. For instance, I have this on my desktop computer in a file called i3.desktop in that directory:
Code: [Select]
[Desktop Entry]
Comment=improved dynamic tiling window manager
I have installed ubuntu touch. Downloaded it from  ( see the post above from sven1999 : Thanks  sven1999)
 Calls , sms, camera are working.
I could not dial and  answer calls using  codi. Only with dialer-app.
Libertine does not work to install libreoffice.
And the sound output to speaker only works after I plug and remove an earphone.
I have changed a file cosmo ( keyboard layout ) to have accents and make sound and brightness work with fn keys.
Also I created an script to enable keyboard backlight on and off.
Ubuntu touch is fine, but Debian to me is a better choice for now.
Thank you to all people in this forum.
Any chance you can do me a big favour and share that script to turn the keyboard backlight on and off and how to implement it. 
I've been trying to get something to work with 'echo 45 > /proc/aw9524_led_proc', looking at other tweaks and scripts here and on the UBPorts forum and trying to understand how to turn the backlight on from either at the keyboard or by opening the Cosmo, but I can't figure it out.

is there a way to get rid of lxqt on debian, and use it as base system without GUI ? Please elaborate.. I don't even know how to move to different run-level (3 or 4)

Any luck with updating to Debian 10 ?

Also, is there a way to use i3wm instead of lxqt ? sddm seems not to recognise i3, but if I switch to lightdm, i can login to i3 session...

Sorry, two subjects in one message...
Cosmo Communicator - Android / Re: Android update not found

I can further update you that on Monday (yesterday) my brother came round with his Cosmo and we prepared to follow the instructions as above to refresh the latest version. However, before doing so I checked the OTA update and this time it found an OTA update. So after installing that (and a further two OTA updates that then appeared) and updating the CoDi, it was finally up to date. Maybe Planet did something over the last week or two to make the OTA updates work again for people with the older v15 and earlier firmwares.

Anyway, thought it might be of help to encourage you to try the OTA one more time just in case.

Hi Varti,

very happy to keep the log archive, not planning to get rid of it or anything.

My thoughts are on keeping it logging going forward. Can only see a couple of people using #gemini-pda at present, and did spot mention of #planet-devices as well. Will try and keep in place whatever works best for all of us, just let us know how we can help.

Hi and thanks for taking care of the logs.

Lately there are very few posts in that channel, though I understand that there are some users who prefer to remain on that channel. I'm not aware of any other Planet-related IRC channel, except for #planet-devices on IRCNet of course.
I'd like to keep the old logs though, for historic reasons (as well as #kexecboot, which holds a lot of info for the Zaurus PDA which is not available anywhere else). Would it be possible to keep the logs there? Otherwise, I can host here a zipped mirror of the channel(s).
