Hi daalnroti,
My 2 USB to ethernet adapters both work in ArchLinuxARM
====================
Linksys USB200M 10/100 Ethernet Adapter
Device 006 ID 13b1:0018
driver, Asix
Needs a powered hub, I tried with and without powered hub.
====================
Belkin Components F5D5050 100Mbps Ethernet
Device 002 ID 050d:0121
driver (dmesg shows driver is Pegasus)
This one works fine without a powered hub. It just lit up as soon as I logged in.
====================
I haven't got my Socket Rugged 10/100 card working yet. It seems to be using pcnet_cs and spits out a lot of errors in dmesg.
In dmesg it says it is NE2000 compliant, but we know it is not. I 'll try to copy the dmesg errors to a file and post them here.

Hi Jon,

good news!

In regards to the Rugged one, try to blacklist the pcnet_cs module and do a reboot. This way it might pick up the right driver.

Cheers!

I blacklisted pcnet_cs and it appears no modules are loaded when inserting the Socket Rugged 10/100 card.
only 2 lines in dmesg

Here is a photo of the Socket Rugged 10/100 CF card if anyone is interested in seeing that is different than the other Socket card with similar name.
1rst pic is Socket Rugged 10/100 CF card.
2nd pic is Socket 10/100 CF card (no "Rugged" in the name).

Hi Jon,

it seems the required module would be axnet_cs. This was not included in the 4.2.3-c3x00-v0.3 release.

You can try the 4.2.3-c3x00-v0.4 release : https://github.com/greguu/linux-4.2.3-c3x00...leases/tag/v0.4

I have added the following options :

CODE
[*]     National Semi-conductor 8390 devices                                                                                        
<M>       Asix AX88190 PCMCIA support                                                                                                
<M>       ASIX AX88796 NE2000 clone support                                                                                          
[*]         ASIX AX88796 external 93CX6 eeprom support                                                                            
<M>       NE2000 compatible PCMCIA support


Try also with keeping the pcnet_cs blacklisted.

Cheers!

Thank you including this module.
I don't have it working yet.
This is what I tried. I updated my SD card with ArchlinuxARM with the above archive and copied the 4.2.3-c3x00 directory
to /lib/modules/ and the updated zImage-4.2.3-c3x00 to /boot. I double checked the /lib/modules dir and made sure the new files were copied over.
I then booted my Zaurus into Arch with my Socket card inserted. There was no connection, I pinged google with no results.
I made sure that pcnet_cs was still blacklisted. I checked dmesg and got the same results as in my last post.
Then I used "lsmod" and "axnet_cs" was not listed.
I then used "modprobe axnet_cs" and it loaded but under lsmod, it is not being used by anything.
I then unplugged my Socket ethernet card and plugged it back in, "axnet_cs" is still loaded.
I then tried "ifconfig eth0 up" eth0 not found
I used ifconfig -a and I get 3 entries
lo
irda
lo
BTW, after unplugging the ethernet card and plugging it back in, and issuing modprobe axnet_cs again and ifconfig, my dmesg output remains the same.

try a "modprobe 8390" before axnet_cs. Also I would it give it a go without the blacklisting, just in case.

Hi daalnroti,
I tried modprobe 8390" before axnet_cs. I also removed the blacklisting from pcnet_cs
lsmod shows

I think I may have found the cause for the troubles with this card.
There was a bug in the driver or the chip (ax88790) in this card.
http://www.mail-archive.com/linux-pcmcia@l...g/msg00051.html
It looks like I'll need to compile a module for this card, but am not sure where to start.
Thank you,

Hi Jon,
unfortunately this patch is 9 years old and was made for kernel 2.6.15. It does not work with the kernel in use (4.2.3)
Also looking at the source of linux/drivers/net/ethernet/8390/axnet_cs.c of the current kernel it seems it already has support for the AX88790 chipset.
There are no recent reports of this card working with newer kernels. You may have some luck playing around with the modules I compiled.
Try 8390 and axnet_cs without the pcnet_cs. The module should at least find the card and show something in dmesg. If not, then it is not supported (anymore) I guess.
Cheers.

Hi ALARMZers!

I hope you've had a good xmas daal and everyone else reading this!? I did eventually see your messages on IRC, daal, about the new kernels etc! It's good to hear stuff is still happening with ALARMZ! As you all may have guessed I've not been messing with the Z much recently but I did buy a new USB wifi adapter for it on xmas eve that I've still not tried yet. It was only £3 and claimed to support Linux on the box so I figured it was too good not to buy at that price. I expect it won't work without being plugged into a powered hub but even if so it'll still be useful to have. In "computer land" I've mainly been testing the MusE DAW for Linux and the excellent Budgie desktop, which I run under Arch on my laptop now. It's essentially GNOME 3 done properly and much more lightweight! It uses about the same amount of RAM as MATE but with more features like integrated menu search, compositing and better app/desktop preview icons etc and a base that is current with / based upon the latest GNOME 3.

Today was my second day at my new job so that ensures that not only do I now have much less time for messing wth the Z but much less time for (non-work) life in general. At least I won't be sinking into debt any more!

The main reason I decided to post is to notify everyone here that there has recently been some significant work on the Linux libertas wifi driver - a series of 6 patches for the libertas driver has just been posted to the Linux wireless ML. Hopefully these will fix my CF wifi probs under modern kernels. Seeing as 4.4.0 is almost upon us I suspect it may not make it in time for that but hopefully it'll make it into 4.4.1.

Best wishes for 2016!

Happy New Year!

Like Danboid my work load has increased significantly so my Z time has dropped, well to zero really. Long story short we are a 4 man department, one position was eliminated, one person retired, and the other besides myself is now on long term medical leave due to back issues.

My next 6 months is pretty well scheduled at this point and I don't see a ton of free time so my participation is going to be slim to none.

I'll keep an eye here and try to do updates when possible.

Happy New Year to you all!

Glad to see everyone's still around if not too busy going into 2016.....

Hopefully, we can all have more fun with our little Z's this year. But like others, work and life seems to be getting more in the way than I'd like......but will try to keep up with what's going on here...

Will certainly want to test out the new kernel and rootfs when it's available......thanks, daalnroti....

All the best,

Mark

Hi Mark,

no worries, hope you find time to play with your Z. I aim to use the 4.4.x series kernel for a long term ALARM base.
I try to dedicate some of my free time to this project and keep it going. As always, any feedback and support is very welcome.

Cheers!

Hi Daalnroti,

Thanks, sounds good.....

Will provide feedback once I've installed and used your new release....

Just let someone else know about ALARMZ.....hopefully, they will check it out....

Hi all,

I was able to install ALARM on my C3200, which is pretty exciting. And it looks like suspend works by hitting "On/Off", which is cool as hell. Out of curiosity, what kinds of functionality are folks still trying to get working?

Hi Volt,

first, great to have another user. Thanks for giving ALARM a go on your C3200.

Well, we try to keep the C1000/C3200 alive with an up to date kernel and hope to maintain most of the core functionality.

Personally, I do not have the time to get a fully customised distribution going with a graphical interface and all the apps.

Arch lets you do that easily if you dig through their Wiki and Forum. However, Xorg is pretty demanding on RAM and hardly usable imho.

Using clever console apps like tmux etc you can get much productivity as a SSH client due to the good keyboard.

The C3x00 hardware is pretty well supported, there are a few glitches and some features need testing.

Outstanding issues are at this stage:

- C1000 support - There are still issues with kexecboot,backlight init and other things.
- Framebuffer console blanking causes a white screen the first time, the following blanks are "off" and black.
- Official kernel 4.7+ support, currently there are SPI issues and other things not working in mainline, current kernels are patched with backports from 4.6.7
- Kernel 4.12 introduced a minor keymapping issue. (you need to use left or right shift keys to get all uppercase letters)

What does work on C3x00:

- Ext4 and F2FS for OS
- NTFS, FAT for storage if needed
- USB storage and HID
- SD cards
- CF cards
- WiFi on USB and CF for supported cards
- CF card LAN works for supported cards
- Suspend / Resume
- Online charging (you need to re-plug the power cord after a boot)
- ALSA (Sound)

well, we are only a few users , so your feedback and testing is welcome.

Feel free to ask for help here in the forum or join the IRC channel.

Cheers,

Greguu
