OESF Portables Forum _ Zaurus - pdaXrom _ Hardware problems with pdaXrom..

Posted by: Laze Dec 28 2004, 06:43 AM

Do you have a piece of hardware thats not working under pdaXrom like a CF network card, USB controller etc?

Please post your cardctl ident and cardctl status and all other info you can find about the card (links to drivers etc.) - then we will try and fix them one at a time and try and make sure that pdaXrom supports as many accessories as possible.

We will probally be holding an IRC meeting with all user who are having problems with hardware but this is meant to be a warm up to see how many problems there are and how much time it will take to fix them.

Laze,

There are a few people on these boards that use cheap and nasty Zonet ZCF1100 wireless cards, including me.

I added the following to /etc/pcmcia/hermes.conf to make it work:

card "Zonet ZCF1100"
manfid 0x000b, 0x7100
bind "orinoco_cs"

Cheers,

Mike.

Laze --

did you fix the cell modem that my friend has -- I think we sent you the info
before. we/he said that we/he were willing to donate/pay $100 for this
card to work.

I just tried the instrutions here:

https://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=1382&hl=gprs

I had the bad vcc error at first, just like he/she did.

Then I downloaded the sample scripts and edited it for my provider, using vi

tried to connect, but had output of:

defining PDP context...
Connect script failed


So, since i really dont know anything but how to follow instructions, I am at a loss.



I think Laze said there would be a how-to with this card sometime after RC8 release. I guess we wait!

Since you've started a thread specifically for this purpose, I'll repost this stuff...

To enable the Symbol LA-4137 "Wireless Networker" wifi card, add the following lines to /etc/pcmcia/spectrum.conf:

CODE
card "LA4137 Spectrum24 CF WLAN CARD"
manfid 0x014d, 0x0001
bind "spectrum_cs"


For the TRENDnet TE-CF100 wired fast ethernet card, add the following lines to /etc/pcmcia/config:

CODE
card "TRENDnet TE-CF100"
manfid 0x0149, 0xc1ab
bind "pcnet_cs"


When I insert my RATOC CFU-1, "cardctl ident" returns

CODE
Socket 0:
 product info: "RACTOC",  "USB HOST CF+ Card"
 manfid: 0xc015, 0x0001
 function: 11  (ident)


"cardctl status" returns

CODE

My card is ready, and the cardctl suspend then resume doesnt work.

When dialing I get, /usr/sbin/ppd: unrecongnized option"

and cardctl config gives me Vcc and a large string of #s

Ill just redo the whole process to make sure everythink is right.

Good to know it is working for others!

Posted by: shula Jan 1 2005, 04:48 AM

it's *not exactly* a hardware problem, but IMHO it kind of fits here:

SYNC on SD card issue:

after writing files to my SD card, i plugged it in the desktop, and NADA: file is not there. returned the SD to the zaurus, and the file IS there.

it's probably a "sync/cache" issue.
the workaround is to run "sync" before i take out the card from the Z.

this behaviour didnt exist on my previous rom (cacko 1.21b)

Posted by: rgrep Jan 1 2005, 07:11 PM

You are unmounting the card before you remove it, right? smile.gif You could test whether it's a problem with the eject applet by typing 'mount' in a terminal after telling the applet to eject it. If you see it still listed as mounted then some process may still be using the card. You can eject it manually by typing '/etc/sdcontrol eject' but you will still get the "device is busy" error if a process has a file open on your card. To find out which processes are using your card just type:

CODE
fuser -vm /mnt/card

or to see more of each process's command line:
CODE
ps | grep $(fuser -m /mnt/card | tr -s " " | sed 's/ / -e /g' | cut -d" " -f2-)

Posted by: rgrep Jan 1 2005, 07:20 PM

If you mount filesystems from your SD card through the loopback device (e.g. cramfs filesystems like the SDK) then even after unmounting them you still won't be able to eject your card ("umount /mnt/card: device is busy"), and "fuser -m /mnt/card" won't list any processes. If you type "ps | grep loop" you'll see a line like this:

CODE
15368 root            SW< [loop0]

To unlink the loop device just type:
CODE
losetup -d /dev/loop0

Do that for each loop device listed in the ps output. The umount command is actually supposed to do this for you when you unmount a loopbacked filesystem but for some reason the pdaXrom version doesn't.

Posted by: shula Jan 2 2005, 07:27 AM

no, i'm too lazy to umount it.
usually i just wait 3-5 seconds after file op is finished, and i eject the card.
as i noted before, it wokred in cacko without the need to umount (which is what i call "real hot-swap" ;-))

thanks for your advices.

Posted by: rgrep Jan 2 2005, 10:16 AM

I wouldn't call it a bug if you're doing something no one would ever recommend. smile.gif pdaXrom has synchronous I/O disabled in the kernel (CONFIG_FS_SYNC), do you know if Cacko 1.21b does as well? If not then that would explain why you're able to remove the card after such a short time without doing a manual sync.

I installed SAMBA server (2.2.9) and now when rebooting, I am getting the following error repeated on the output screen:

eth0: Error -110 writing Tx descriptor to BAP

I disconnect the Orinocco based wifi card and it stops...

I get login and log in uneventfully. I can Plug again the card, and I got internet access...

but NO SAMBA SHARES...

I found this link:

http://www.uwsg.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/0412.1/0329.html

Which talks about same error ... is this MY problem or is it some kind of incompatibility / inconsistency between Kernel and compiled samba version AND orinocco cards ?

I think the socketcom firmware in the spectrum24 driver is old.. my locally compiled driver works ok (under my own kernel), but the one with 1.1.0-rc8 seems to overdrive the antenna or something. Oddly, cupping my hand over the antenna seems to improve the signal quality. smile.gif Quite strange.

Anyway, I attached my spectrum_fw.h generated from the latest firmware on Socket's web site. Can you check if it differs, and if so, recompile the driver against rc8's kernel? Alternatively, could you post your kernel source? tongue.gif

Thanks!

Guys,

I know it listed as fixed for RC8, but it isn't working for me. That is revision B of Socket 6004 card.

I added the following entry in /etc/pcmcia/spectrum.com:

Now it appears like its tyring to work and dmesg spits out the following:

eth0: Ad-hoc demo mode supported

eth0: WEP supported, 104-bit key

spectrum_cs: register_netdev() failed



Any and all help would be more than welcome and very much appreciated!!!

Posted by: Mickeyl Jan 28 2005, 03:32 AM

6004 B is not a prism2.5 card, there's no way you will get spectrum_cs work with it.
It's based on Agere HERMES II design. Someone added their drivers to OE, so you could try to build and run these.

Hi Alex,

You could try changing drivers from orinoco to hostap. I also have a Linksys WCF12 and have noticed my card behaves much better under hostap. See https://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=7151&view=findpost&p=44759 for instructions on changing drivers.

I found that after re flashing from RC8 to RC9 that my Bluetooth card stopped working, I don't remember the exact problem as I am back on RC8 now, also every time I try to put my Zaurus into standby with the Bluetooth card in the PDA just crashes and I end up having to take the battery out to restart it sad.gif

(Had to edit this as I forgot to mention my Bluetooth card make...)
It is a Armadillo Bluetooth CF Card V1.1. Model no: LSE039/4 R1D Type: LSE039

Thaks all I know about my BT card dry.gif

That's one problem I'm having...

The other is with the USB data cable, when I set the USB settings so it will let my comp access the SD slot I keep getting my comp telling me that even when I have a card in the SD slot it says "There is no disk in the drive" The Zaurus shows up in My Computer as a new removable drive but it just will not work. It has never worked since the feature was added. Do I need to install some special driver for my Zaurus on to my comp which runs XP Pro SP 2 instead of it using the generic driver that XP installs the second you connect the Z for the first time?

Apart from that I'm really happy with RC8, don't know about RC9 as I used it for only 10 mins before going back to 8, waiting for RC10 now tongue.gif

One more thing that probably isn't related to the OS but... then I install the WiFi scanner from the IPK feed it doesn't give me an icon anywhere to let me use the program and I have no idea where it is installed, I have that prob with a few of the programs that I install.

One last thing... The PPP thing for accessing the internet only lets me dial a phone number, it there not a way I can get my Z to connect to my phone and connect to the internet via GPRS so that I don't have to pay for the duration that I am online, just pay for the amount of data transferred.

Thanks in advance biggrin.gif

Posted by: omega Jun 3 2005, 12:02 AM

Wolfie_FOX, regarding gprs... It is the same settings for ppp to use gprs over ir to phone you just put in a different dialing number... it's like #99 or something...

Posted by: azalin Jun 13 2005, 04:01 AM

I hope this is the right thread to post in, but I think this is some nice info on getting support for the only 802.11g network card currently on the market (this is nice so hotspots won't get slower because a 802.11b card connects or on hotspots which are 802.11g (+WPA or WEP) exclusively).

Card name: Linksys WCF54G Wireless Compact Flash
Chipset: likely the Hermes II.5 chip (WL60040) (or possibly Hermes II chip (WL60010)?)
Drivers source: http://www.agere.com/mobility/wireless_lan_drivers.html
(Pick the 7.22 version drivers, does not support older chips anymore but it reportedly supports this chip).
Review of the card: http://www.tomsnetworking.com/Reviews-177-ProdID-WCF54G.php
Possible problems: Driver is kernel 2.4 only, driver http://www.linuxdevices.com/cgi-bin/board/UltraBoard.pl?Action=ShowPost&Board=linuxpda&Post=327&Idle=0&Sort=0&Order=Descend&Page=0&Session=
works on x86, so far only a report of crashes on Xscale (Zaurus Cacko).
Driver download extras: HCF directory contains firmware images to allow the card to operate in either station (STA) or Access Point (AP) mode.

Check also the following threads (I tried to make a summary of the info in this post).

There is a popular wireless CF card which isn't supported by pdaXrom, at least, I thought it was very popular and therefore I bought it.

SMC2642 EZ Connect 2642W

This card is recognized either as "anonymus memory" or as Sandisk connect SDWCFB-000".

#cardctl info
PRODID_1 = " " (yes one space)
PRODID_2 = "SMC2642W 11Mbps Wireless CF Card"

#cardctl ident 0
Product info: " ", "SMC2642W 11Mbps Wireless CF Card", ""
manfid: 0x601, 0x0005

Other ROMS support this card according what I read in these forums. Would you add support to this card?. I tried all kind of configurations in the /etc/pcmcia files, but now I'm clueless.

6000 (probably other too for some of this)

USB keyboard map incomplete--no punctuation, that sort of thing

IR Keyboard Belkin f8u1500 Doesn't work

Sharp CF camera

Maybe publish a list of usb Bluetooth dongles? I have one that doesn't work, but it might be easier just to find ones that do.

USB GPS?? I don't have one atm, but I haven't seen reports of their use (could be me).

USB cameras via V4L support in the kernel?

On the 6k
Power button doesn't suspend
ctrl/alt does nothing
"special keys" Mail home menu, etc do nothing
Record button does nothing.
Suspend/resume while wireless is on brings back a "dead" connection (light is on , no data will transfer)

And.. something that doesn't work on any rom that I have seen, but seems wanted: 2gig sd... or at least 2 gig mmc (which I think hasn't been tested)

Posted by: dominate Sep 27 2005, 03:23 PM

hi all.... just running pdaxrom after playing around with the sharp rom and openzaurus opie and gpe distros for a while.... i can't believe how sweet pdaXrom is! exactly what i want!

anyway, back on topic... i have the ambicom wl1100c-cf wireless card... it works very sporadically in pdaXrom, although always worked perfectly in the others... what am i missing? it has worked for me a couple times, but even then droped and reconnected quite a bit. Other times, i can't even get it to connect to my network.

I've read a bunch of the discussion on using hostap drivers, but i'm confused... i don't have ANY wireless drivers in lsmod (at least when it's not working), and only a couple even installed in the modules directory, so i'm assuming most are built in. also, my card shows up as eth0 not wlan0.

What am i missing?

thanks!

It's prism2 based card - use hostap_cs or orinoco_cs for it. It was released by many manufacturers and IIRC it is based on Intersil reference card.

apmsleep does not seem to work correctly on the 6000. It suspends but does not resume. Cant seem to right click (even after reading other threads). Windows still open like they are on a clamshell (have not looked for a fix).

Wireless works like rc10, it *seems* faster to me, even firefox seems to open faster. All in all a fairly large step in stability and speed. If apmsleep worked and I could script up alarms, pdaxrom would be 100% usable for me.

Great Job!!

I apologize for the somewhat redundant post in the "rc 12" topic but this topic seemed more suitable...

Anyhow, I'm using rc12 with a C1000 and while a USB mouse works fine trying to use a USB keyboard is a no-go. Switching USB function to "serial" causes the built-in keyboard to stop working (touch screen works fine) and no keypresses from the USB keyboard are registered. Unplugging the keyboard and switching the USB function back to "storage" freezes up the system.

I've tried both a Fellowes "stowaway keyboard" as well as a standard mac usb keyboard.

Any ideas?

Posted by: MONVMENTVM Oct 13 2005, 05:57 AM

how do you use the usb mouse? i just plugged it in but nothing happens... dmesg says something about usb device not activated.

I just plugged it in and dmesg picks it up properly. After that I open up the "USB Function" app and switch to "serial" mode and it just works. I don't know if it matters but this is with a Kensington Orbit two button trackball.

I'm also using a C1000 so perhaps this is C3100 specific. Did you upgrade from rc11 or was this a freshly flashed rc12?

Posted by: MONVMENTVM Oct 13 2005, 09:26 PM

was a fresh rc12. there shouldnt be any difference between the c3100 and the c1000... if you look rc12 is the same rom for both devices.

do you have /proc/bus/usb ? i saw that some usb functions need it (lsusb needs it... and also usbh!). but i dont have it.

i also tested with the DM-menu. under "test mouse" it said to connect the mouse (which i did); then the lights of the mouse appeared and it said that the mouse is ok and working... so the hardware should be ok. i think that i dont have some files...

i also plugged in a card reader... but nothing happens.

dmesg says the following (just the things wich sound interesting for me):

I'm using the same card on a C3100. It seems to die after a certain amount of activity. IE if I have it connected but leave the connection idle all is well -- but not very useful smile.gif

When I start downloading files or browsing the web etc, then after a random number of bytes (or number of seconds?) the connection dies and I start getting these errors on dmesg:

CODE
eth0: Error -110 writing Tx descriptor to BAP


When this happens the following usually brings the card back up:

CODE
cardctl eject 0
cardctl insert 0


And I have to keep doing this everytime the connection dies sad.gif

I have also tried using the hostap driver as per this post:

https://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=7151&st=0&p=44759&#entry44759

But evidently the hostap drive isn't available because I get this error:

CODE
module /lib/modules/2.4.20/pcmcia/hostap_cs.o not available



This is the major stumbling block which prevents me from using pdaXrom. Any help appreciated smile.gif

Yup, same over here, running RC12 on an Akita with a D-Link DCF-660W. Transfer from network to Zaurus works ok, but the uplink is totally broken, locks up whenever transferring a larger file from the Z to the network. Sometimes the driver locks up so badly that the card can't be reinitialized with the cardctl eject/insert trick, and even reboot won't work so that I have to reset the device. sad.gif

Have others fallen victim to the same bug? Maybe it's an RC12 issue? The D-Link DCF-660W is a fairly common card, supported by almost any Zaurus OS including the venerable Sharp ROM.

BTW, the hermes.conf file also lacks an entry for the DCF-660W, so it's recognized as a "Sandisk Connect SDWCFB-000" instead. Here's the entry that I use now, can someone please confirm that I'm using the correct module?

CODE

agraef: use hostap-modules instead of orinoco for that card.

most of Prism2 cards works better with hostap_cs then with orinoco_cs driver.

Yes but how? Correct me if I'm wrong but the hostap modules don't seem to be supported on pdaXrom?

Just to make sure, I just tried the card on Oz and it works perfectly (using hostap-modules, of course), so it's not a hardware issue. And it's not RC12-specific either, RC11 exhibits the same symptoms.

Posted by: Hrw Oct 18 2005, 05:05 AM

Well, at least not out of the box and not in the regular feeds. But I'll try to see whether I can get one of the older hostap packages someone posted in another thread to work.

EDIT: Bad luck, RC12 comes with kernel 2.4.20, but all those older packages are for RC10 and the 2.4.18 kernel.

EDIT#2: I found that this apparently only affects the C1K/C3100 release (based on kernel 2.4.20). At least with RC11+12 for the C1000/C3100, most of the wlan drivers (hermes, orinoco etc.) are not built as separate modules, but are compiled into the kernel, and the hostap modules are just missing. So I had to build my own, see https://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=15608&view=findpost&p=101297 for a tarball with the binaries.

Anyone got the Fellowes Stowaway keyboard working yet? USB mouse worked automatically for me too, but when I plug in the keyboard the keymapping is completely random. sad.gif

If the external keyboard could work properly with pdaXrom, it would be a killer combination -- did it work previously in pdaX? or do we need to wait for the next rc to have this feature?

Hi,

I had problems with my Socket Low Power WLAN card using rc10 and rc12 on my SL-C1000. It would work fine as a normal WiFi, but would not go into monitor mode for some Kismet action. I ended up recompiling the tetsu kernel, taking out the compiled in hermes chipset driver and compiling some modules from the latest source of the drivers.

I just had to do it again when upgrading from rc10 to rc12, so I put down a bit more detail on what I did http://www.neonbox.org/zaurus/index.html.

First, you have to add your card definition to /etc/pcmcia/hostap_cs.conf

Edit this file and add :

CODE
card "PLANEX COMMUNICXATIONS INC."
  manfid 0xd601, 0x0010
  bind "hostap_cs"


It's time to flash your card (credits to gryning).
Download the latest firmware from :
http://www.red-bean.com/~proski/firmware/1.8.4.tar.bz2 (extract rf010804.hex)
http://www.red-bean.com/~proski/firmware/primary.tar.bz2 (extract pm010102.hex)

Then use this script :
CODE
#!/bin/sh
cardctl scheme default
prism2_srec -gs wlan0 <path>/pm010102.hex
prism2_srec -gp wlan0 <path>/pm010102.hex
iwpriv wlan0 reset 1
prism2_srec -rp wlan0 path/rf010804.hex
iwconfig wlan0 mode 2
cardctl scheme planex

Where <path> is the path to the firmware.

Use ifconfig -a and you will see your card interface, now put it up using ifconfig <interface> up and it will works.

If it's doesn't work properly, verify that you have hostap and hostap_cs module loaded (lsmod | grep hostap) and try to plug the card one more time.

Actually this script has to be run manually. But you can modify it to act as an init.d script and / or create an hotplug / hostap config to made it run when you plug your wifi card.

That is what I have been doing and even though Wlan0 is detected when I plug the card in I can not seem to be able to get it to go on line. After I run the script the light goes on but it will not send just receive. When I go to the lan/wifi icon and try to input my info the light goes out and I can't get it to go on again without rerunning the script and the same things happen all over again. It may be time to buy another card. Maybe I could donate this one to the cause. The problem with buying another one is that they're not that easy to find and which one would be better than what I've got. I have read some other posts and think I have some ideas. Thanks for all your help.

Well I thought I would give it one more try and I finally managed to get it to work. What I was doing wrong was that I had not saved a scheme in the lan/wifi setup, once I did that it worked as soon as the script is run. Thanks again for all your help.

I need some help to put to work my CFVGA adapter, a voyager this has a cirrus logic chipset....

I also have CF VGA adapter, but mine is Pretec PocketPresenter with Epson S1D13806F00A1 chipset. I would like very much to get it working with pdaX, because it works with Cacko (not without a trick - I had to run "cfxgamirror 1" instead of "cfxgamirror 0" by default).

First, you have to add your card definition to /etc/pcmcia/hostap_cs.conf
Edit this file and add :
CODE
card "PLANEX COMMUNICXATIONS INC."
  manfid 0xd601, 0x0010
  bind "hostap_cs"


It's time to flash your card (credits to gryning).
Download the latest firmware from :
http://www.red-bean.com/~proski/firmware/1.8.4.tar.bz2 (extract rf010804.hex)
http://www.red-bean.com/~proski/firmware/primary.tar.bz2 (extract pm010102.hex)

Then use this script :
CODE
#!/bin/sh
cardctl scheme default
prism2_srec -gs wlan0 <path>/pm010102.hex
prism2_srec -gp wlan0 <path>/pm010102.hex
iwpriv wlan0 reset 1
prism2_srec -rp wlan0 path/rf010804.hex
iwconfig wlan0 mode 2
cardctl scheme planex

Where <path> is the path to the firmware.

Use ifconfig -a and you will see your card interface, now put it up using ifconfig <interface> up and it will works.

If it's doesn't work properly, verify that you have hostap and hostap_cs module loaded (lsmod | grep hostap) and try to plug the card one more time.

I have Planex wireless card and i have problem that it could not detect on RHEL4.
I tried this tip, and It worked, it was brilliant
But, after restart system or reinsert card, I could not find wireless card.
Now , how can I download new firmware into flash of card. I want to use "-f" parametr.
But, I tried several time, there was some error .
I only changed "g" to "f" on script.





Please advice me, to download firmware into flash of card.

i can only tell you that i highlight and paste this script and run it every time i want to use this card. Beyond that i have no idea how to make this automatic.

Hello.

I tried to use the Netgear WG111 USB wifi dongle on my C3100 (pdaxrom 1.1.0-beta1).
When I plug it (with USB setting "serial"), it does find any driver. I am not quite familiar with USB support with Linux, so I wonder if it either unsupported, or if I have something to do before inserting it (modprobe some module ?).

With USB storage, it works without any problem.

1- Have you a USB OTG adapter cable?

2- If yes on (1), Have you tested with a powered USB HUB?

Posted by: TJBK_TJB Apr 23 2006, 01:52 PM

I've been having trouble with USB to serial adapters. The first one I tried was a Belkin F5U109 USB Serial Adapter. The driver reported by dmesg is the Magic Control Technology USB-RS232 converter driver v1.1 (mct_u232.c). It appeared to work at first, but then I realized that sending data did not work. So, I purchased an IOGear GUC232AWM USB to Serial Adapter. When I connected it, dmesg reported that it was a PL-2303 converter. It seems to function well, but it refused to function with the two programs that didn't work with earlier, though it seems to do more. The two programs are http://www.gpsbabel.org/ and http://cgpsmapper.com/ (a statically-linked x86 binary with user space qemu).

I use the cable adapter "mini USB host", but i do not use a hub. Should I ?

(I also noticed that i can use my Ipod as an external drive !!!)

OK! I think WG111 must works with wlan-ng ...
try install and loads driver from wlan-ng

ThinkOutside Stowaway BlueTooth Keyboard.

Can discover device, but cant connect/use keyboard. Default sharp rom, & OZ works fine. Pdaxrom beta 3+4 & cracko it doesn't work.

Any hints on comparing whats different between pdaxrom & sharp/oz roms to make this device work?

I will love you forever if you can help *crossing fingers for help* lol

I've been trying for awhile to get a deleo usb gps device working on a C1000. When i attach the gps the output from dmesg shows the pl-2303 converter attached and says it has attached it to ttyUSB0. Im using beta4 now and cant find ttyUSB anything in /dev (i have seen it in previous versions though). I was interested to hear you say "It seems to function well". I'm a bit new at Zaurus (or even linus) devopment and was planning on trying cat /dev/ttyUSB0 to see the raw output from the gps to check if that was working before i then go on the get gpsd running. But since i now can't find ttyUSB0 and don't know what else to try I am stuck. Is there something i'm overlooking or some other package i need to install?

Thanks guys.

I've been using beta2 as neither beta4 nor beta3 was not quite working out for me. I did not get to testing my USB serial device, so I never tried it myself. So I don't know.

Hi I'm a new user to pdaxrom 1.1.0beta1 "Kathrin"
running on a c860 (I'm also doing some testing with a c760 on the beta4 release)

Previously I was a fairly satisfied cacko rom user but I wanted something
that gave me more the feel on a minature computer rather than a handheld,
something for which it would be easier to port normal linux applications to
so here I am.

Right after the install I started testing if all the hardware I frequently
use on my zaurus (wireless lan card, GPS receiver and bluetooth card) worked correctly.
Unfortunately one I need most while on standby is the bluetooth card that
system reports to be unsupported. On the cacko rom I managed to get it
working, altough I forgot if I hadto fiddle a little or if it worked
straight away.

Hope you can get me going with this card soon ;-)

Here are the essential card details:

I've been trying for awhile to get a deleo usb gps device working on a C1000.

probably talking out of my hat but almost sure beta4 uses udev so there will be nothing in dev for ttyUSB untill something is conected. for that to happen a udev rule is needed for the device (had to read up on this to get a usb network working between debian and a 5000d). would sugest reading up on udev and how to write rules fot it. if someone has already made a rule for your gps device (for a laptop/desktop/toaster) then that should work for your zaurus to.

Seems that there's no primary firmware available. I hope I'm correct that this card uses a PRISM based chip ...

Anybody an idea how to proceed?

Do you have a piece of hardware thats not working under pdaXrom like a CF network card, USB controller etc?

Please post your cardctl ident and cardctl status and all other info you can find about the card (links to drivers etc.) - then we will try and fix them one at a time and try and make sure that pdaXrom supports as many accessories as possible.

We will probally be holding an IRC meeting with all user who are having problems with hardware but this is meant to be a warm up to see how many problems there are and how much time it will take to fix them.

I realize I am quoting a three year old post in a thread that hasn't seen a message in six months, but this is the most appropriate thread and it *is* pinned...

I am running a pdaXii13 full install from a SanDisk Ultra II 2gb SD card on an Akita, so far without issue. I am trying desperately to achieve some sort of network connectivity and have, to that end, just acquired a Trendnet TE-CF10 (yes, ten), This thread seemed the best bet to get it working, beginning with this (reposted at the time) info.

QUOTE
CODE
card "TRENDnet TE-CF100"
manfid 0x0149, 0xc1ab
bind "pcnet_cs"


I have tried it with the "100" and with a "10". I have tried it with the actual information reported by cardctl ident ("Ethernet", "CF Size PC Card", "1.0", " ") and I have tried it with the (later suggested) "Unknown NE2000 Compatible Ethernet". I have tried it with and without "function: 6 (network)" and even added the commented out "function: network_adapter" mentioned in one post. Nothing worked--in fact it never mattered what I entered in /etc/pcmcia/config, the card eject panel in icewm always reported it as "TRENDnet TE-CF100" (yes, one hundred).

I suppose it was due to my own tunnel-vision that it took me several hours to finally check lsmod to find out the module wasn't even being loaded and subsequently try modprobe pcnet_cs to discover that the module bound by 11,000 entries in /etc/pcmcia/config couldn't even be found...

I've looked in every beta1, beta3 and ii13 feed I can find (which is probably relatively few) to no avail. But then I realized that this is a fresh install of 5.4.9, my entire set of customizations consisting of adding some wallpapers, editing ipkg.conf so that /mnt/card2 will show up as a possible destination, and now one edit (several times) to /etc/pcmcia/config--which means that 5.4.9 doesn't include that module.

Is there some way I can get it, or would I need to reflash to some indeterminately older version of pdaxrom, get the card working and then attempt to upgrade back to 5.4.9 from there? Or am I stuck with an unconnected Zaurus until I can score a wireless card, since all the ethernet cards require this (seemingly) now non-existent module?

Thanks for any help you may be able to provide :>
