My headphones got tangled, and ripped the headphone cables, and ruined headphone jack of my 6000. sad.gif

I'm hoping to find a replacement, many thanks.

email to miskinis@hotmail.com for quick reply, thanks!

[a PM to someone offering a web site and FTP server, from almost a year ago]


Yes, I must agree the forum is somewhat of a ghost town. sad.gif

If you are still offering a free website, and/or FTP server, PLEASE count me
in. I use my Z (SL-6000) daily, and I'm about to look through a "mile" high
pile of CDROMs for PdaXqtRom, and a bunch of other stuff.

It seems almost all of my old links are now invalid, and I'm finally about to
try to get videos working on the 6000.

I'm not sure I'll ever have the interest (or opportunity) to use my computer
engineering skills in the marketplace, and I'm gravitating towards other
interests, such as songwriting, and recording, etc. again.

Anyway, PLEASE let me know, John

Hi Folks,

As you can see from lack of recent posts, I really haven't been doing much with the
Zaurus these days. I have a completely working SL-5500 which is black from removing
the silver paint on the front to look really cool and unique. I did this before I got an SL-6000.
The other SL-5500 is missing one sound channel, maybe just the jack, maybe not. It
also as a small and barely noticeable wear spot on the screen I think due to the previous
owner's repeated clicking of the opera icon on the stock ROM.

Anyway, it would nice to be able to keep one of the power supplies as a spare for my
SL-6000, so I'm willing to entertain offers for various combinations of things, as I have
2 cradles, 2 power supplies, 2 flip covers, 1 standard leather case, and 1 aftermarket case.
I suppose I could throw in a 64MB CF if I had to, but would rather not.

Oh yeh, a note on the black one. The flip cover will not attach as tight as it use to, since
in process of removing a slight layer of the paint, that funny shaped indentation for the
flip cover became a little shallower mostly on one side.

Anyway, reply, or PM, and I will try to answer questions, and may post pics soon if there
is any interest. I am in the USA and prefer paypal.

Hi Folks,

I tried this a few months ago, and gave up. I would very much like to
persue this effort again from scratch. In an effort to get off on the right
track this time, I'd like to discuss this, and hopefully end up with enough
information to be able to build it myself, and also write up a detailed HOWTO.

I read the http://mail.pdaxrom.org/contrib/docs/kerne...mpile-3100.html guide,
but the links to the source don't work, and I also need the 5500 sources.

I assume the correct pdaX86 ISO to boot is the one under the
http://mail.pdaxrom.org/download/1.1.0beta1/ directory ?

And, I'm confused as to why that kernel compile guide mentions that the
pdaX86 system is configured with all the build tools, but then mentions that
he installed pdaXrom builder and cross-compile tools.

I've had some problems booting some of the pdaX86 ISO files on my laptop.
I'm going to burn the one from the beta1 location above shortly, and see if it
will boot as a starting point.

Hi Folks,

I have been experimenting with setting up my SL-6000 as an access point, since
I saw hostapd in the feed, and this is very interesting. I am plugging in a LinySys
WCF-12, which I am able to setup as wlan1 manually (using iwconfig and dhcpd)
to connect TO an access point. I am stuck though, when I try to use it with hostapd.
I get as far as:
# hostapd -d /etc/hostapd.conf
Configuration file: /etc/hostapd.conf
Opening raw packet socket for ifindex 6
Using interface wlan1 with hwaddr 00:06:25:24:8d:28 and ssid 'testap1'
Flushing old station entries
Deauthenticate all stations
Received 146 bytes management frame

MGMT: BSSID=00:84:e1:ef:40:00 not our address

The hostapd process continues to run, but the light on the WCF-12 just blinks.
I'm new to hostapd and not sure if that MGMT message about the BSSID is
an error. I have experimented with many things, since I could not find much info
on the web, and I'm hoping that someone else in the forum has used hostapd
on pdaXrom, and can tell me what might be failing. I can't figure out where it
is getting that BSSID, nor where to specify one. Many thanks for any info!

EDIT: More info, from when I kill the hostapd daemon:
Signal 15 received - terminating
