I was looking to buy one of those new baby monitors that can stream video to your iphone/android phones but they are somewhat expensive and most have pretty bad reviews. I was thinking that there must be a better solution. I haven't carried my C1000 in over a year and was thinking it might make a pretty good low power personal webcam server.

Could anyone recommend a compatible USB camera that works in low light? Also, I've more or less defected from linux to Mac so I'd also like recommendations for the software? I'm guessing Debian is still going to be my best bet for the OS.

I'm starting to get excited about the project. It might be my last chance to geek-out for a while, and I'm looking forward to giving my favorite old toy a new job.

Long live the Zaurus.

Sharp released package for installing flash for the Ubuntu/ARM based NetWalkers. It might work on ubuntu/debian. JKKMobile posted a copy of the installer here http://www2.jkkmobile.com/FlashLite3.1_Firefox_plugin.tar.gz

I hosed my ZUbuntu install a couple days ago in a misguided Maemo/Mer experiment, so it will be awhile before I can try this myself. I looked at the tar file and extracted the installer. Its pretty simple, the tar has couple .so files an a installer.sh that just copies them to the correct directories. It may work. Anyone want to give it a try?

(edited title to make it clear that we are talking about using NetWalker's flash package on the Zaurus, sorry)

I'm struck by how much faster apps start and run while being using X11 forwarding through a ssh connection. The difference is almost nearly double the start time for local apps. Some things are even faster. Searching Synaptic over ssh, for example, is nearly instantaneous compared to running it local.

I'm concerned that I have something screwy with my local configuration that is slowing me down. Is it possible that the reduced load of not having to draw X windows is making a that much difference?

I'm a C1000 owner looking for the "full disto" experience. I dabbled with OpenBSD, and got it working for a while, but I never got the hang of it. I went back to pdaX because it offered the closest thing to a desktop environment on a Z. Debian seems like something to be excited about.

The standard install method seems to be from the z1000_debian.txt document. The problem is that I don't want to commit to uboot. Also, it seems like a much better idea to install debian to a SD card then NAND, just for the extra space.

Does anyone have a method for booting a debian filesystem on SD to share? Maybe Altboot?

I lost my Z yesterday... I misplace things regularly, so I didn't think too much of it until I noticed an extra device on my network. I looked into it and sure enough its my Zaurus. I must have it plugged in somewhere or the battery would be dead. Its responding to pings... Hmm, yeah I just tested ssh, and I can log in. I can't figure out were it is in my house, and my house is not that big.
