In good condition. I recently messed around with OpenBSD, so that's what's on there now. I assume any interested party would know how to put whatever ROM/distro on there they want, though I can restore the Sharp ROM if desired.

Comes with:

-Original charger
-USB host cable
-stylus
-2x batteries (original and Cameron Sino replacement; the latter holds at least some charge)
-Wi-Fi card


I'm thinking maybe $50 shipped within the US. I'd rather get this to somebody who would use it than make a killing, so feel free to make an offer.

PMs should make it to me relatively quickly, assuming the forum's PM email notification works, as should replies here.

I believe hping2 can do WOL. A quick Google seems to imply there are binaries/packages floating around.

Perhaps I should also mention that you can do:

CODE
iwconfig WIRELESS_INTERFACE essid any
DHCP_CLIENT WIRELESS_INTERFACE


That should connect to an open AP within range, if there is one. WIRELESS_INTERFACE is probably "wlan0" and "DHCP_CLIENT" is probably "dhclient" or "dhcpcd"

I'm just taking a stab in the dark here, as I have little knowledge on this topic. Assuming you don't need to load a driver, you should be able to plug in an ethernet cable and run
CODE
dhclient eth0


I'm going to assume that the pxa2xx stuff is built-in to the kernel, hence the module not loading.

One thing that might help is the output of "dmesg" after plugging in the card (cleanest way to do it is reboot, then plug in the card, wait a couple of seconds, then run "dmesg > somefile"; the output will be put in "somefile" for easy copying). If you want to look through it yourself, look for something at the end indicating that the card was recognized. It should be somewhat obvious.

That just about exhausts my knowledge on this matter, so I hope it helps.

I suppose it depends on how the stuff was compiled. That's the whole idea of armel, right, that it runs on many/most ARM CPUs?

I would guess there is a Z build somewhere, but it's not public (or officially so) at the moment.

My impression is that at least one of the devs has a Zaurus already.

Also, you should be able to add the Mer repos (assuming they're Z-compatible, which I don't know one way or the other) and install stuff over ZUbuntu already. Anybody feeling particularly adventurous can add this line to /etc/apt/sources.list:

CODE
deb http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Maemo://Mer://Stable/Ubuntu_9.04/ /


You probably also need these in /etc/apt/preferences:

CODE
Package: *
Pin: release a=jaunty
Pin-Priority: 800



Package: *
Pin: origin download.opensuse.org
Pin-Priority: 801


Just remember, I haven't tested this myself, and can't/don't support it. It may or may not work, and you possibly will FUBAR your install. Anyway, have fun.

Add it to your ~/.fluxbox/startup file (see the example above). You may also want to add it as "nopasswd" in /etc/sudoers.

Note that if you want it to remember keys, you also need to start gnome-keyring-something-or-other.

Hmm... I was doing that off the top of my head. You could try to just copy startfluxbox to /usr/bin/x-session-manager. That's where it needs to go anyway, but I figured I'd keep the symlink intact.

EDIT: It should be /etc/alternatives/x-session-manager

I built some non-Hildonized Webkit and Midori packages a while ago with N810-specific CFLAGS. It runs absolutely amazingly.

Sorry, Midori isn't a package, just a binary (tarred & gzipped). I'm too lazy to find/upload the extensions, but if people want them, I can dig them up.

Anyway, enjoy!

Here you go: https://www.oesf.org/forum/index.php?showtopic=26719

I've got some non-Hildonized Webkit and Midori .debs (N810-optimized!) that I'll post in the Mer section as well.

Here's my simple how-to for installing Fluxbox on an N810 with Mer. N800 users may want to stay away, as this disables the built-in keyboard.

1. Install and remove some packages:

CODE
sudo apt-get remove osso-xterm
sudo apt-get install fluxbox xterm


2. Make Fluxbox start up instead of Hildon stuff:

CODE
sudo rm /etc/alternatives/x-session-manager
sudo cp /usr/bin/startfluxbox /etc/alternatives/x-session-manager


3. Edit some files for usability:

CODE
#~/.fluxbox/keys

#Fullscreen button on top and window-switch button on face
F16 :NextWindow
Shift F6 :FullScreen

# fullscreen button, -, and + (in that order); chenges mouse buttons
F6 :exec xmodmap -e "pointer = 1 2 3";xsetroot -cursor_name left_ptr
F8 :exec xmodmap -e "pointer = 3 2 1";xsetroot -cursor_name right_ptr
F7 :exec xmodmap -e "pointer = 2 1 3";xsetroot -cursor_name hand2

#Requires chmodding, not necessary if you don't FUBAR / uninstall all of the Hildon stuff
Shift F7 :exec echo  0 > /sys/class/leds/keyboard/brightness
Shift F8 :exec echo 30 > /sys/class/leds/keyboard/brightness

Control Mod1 Left :PrevWorkspace
Control Mod1 Right :NextWorkspace

# click on the desktop to get menus
#Very nice to not have to change mouse buttons
OnDesktop Mouse1 :HideMenus
OnDesktop Double Mouse1 :RootMenu

#whatever else you want to stick here


CODE
! ~/.Xmodmap
! A little strange, but more usable than the default

clear Mod1
clear Mod2
clear Mod3
clear Mod4
clear Mod5

! Top row
keycode 24 = q Q 1 F1
keycode 25 = w W 2 F2
keycode 26 = e E 3 F3

keycode 30 = u U 7 F7
keycode 31 = i I 8 F8

keycode 60 = period greater bracketright braceright
keycode 59 = comma less bracketleft braceleft
keycode 65 = space

keycode 108 = Mode_switch

! Keypad, menu, and screen keys
keycode 70 = Tab
keycode 104 = Return
keycode 111 = Up Prior
keycode 114 = Right End
keycode 116 = Down Next
keycode 113 = Left Home
keycode 71 = F16
keycode 9 = Escape


add mod1 = Alt_L
add mod2 = Mode_switch


CODE
# ~/.fluxbox/startup

#!/bin/sh
#
# fluxbox startup-script:
#
# Lines starting with a '#' are ignored.

# Change your keymap:
xmodmap ~/.Xmodmap

gksudo nm-applet &
xterm &

#Left and down don't autorepeat by default
xset r 116 &
xset r 113 &
#gksudo /etc/init.d/ssh start &

# And last but not least we start fluxbox.
# Because it is the last app you have to run it with ''exec'' before it.

exec fluxbox


4. Reboot

CODE
sudo reboot


You should boot into Fluxbox after that.

EDIT: Added N810 package (eg, compiled with N810 CFLAGS)

EDIT2: Corrected the path for x-session-manager

Yeah, I've been using Fluxbox on my N810, and right/middle clicking is a breeze. I should probably give EvilWM a go on it, but the keyboard is crummy enough that I don't really want to.

Fixing things is the easy part. I do it when things annoy me, and sharing how to do it is trivial.

run 'xev' from a terminal, then press the button you want the code of. It will show up in the terminal.

For clarification, it shouldn't matter which kernel is being run. Issues arise with different glibc versions, which also changed between beta3 and beta4/r1xx.

You should be able to use 'xset' to change repeat rate.

As for mapping, it's likely one of:

/etc/keymap.map (or something similar)
/etc/X11/Xmodmap
~/.Xmodmap

Well, yes and no. The pdaXrom ipks are tarballs, but Angstrom ipks are ar archives.

I'm not sure which is more optimized, the Angstrom MPlayer or this one:

http://www.tyrannozaurus.com/feed/beta3/fe...-1_armv5tel.ipk

Feel free to try both.

Yes, the install method is "download and extract the ipk to /, install deps (from Ubuntu repos) as necessary."

Extracting (as root):

CODE
cd /
tar -xf /path/to/mplayer_whatever_armv5te.ipk
tar -xpvf data.tar.gz
rm data.tar.gz debian-binary control.tar.gz

I might as well throw my latest in here as well...

My current setup just uses Fluxbox's event grabber to run "xmodmap -e 'pointer = 3 2 1'" or similar commands. I also have it change the cursor so I can visually check what button will be pressed at any given time.

The other option (I haven't tried this yet) is to add
CODE
Option          "EmulateRightButton"    "1"

to the "input" section of xorg.conf. That SHOULD enable press-and-hold right clicking.

Like I said, I haven't tried it, so YMMV.

Hope that helps somebody.

OK, it turns out this is really easy. I'm going to do this from the prospective of two Zaurii running Zubuntu, so adapt it however necessary. This is a rough draft, so please don't expect everything to be absolutely correct the first time around.

Note that you COULD do this over traditional networks, but that the latency would slow things down to some extent (and it's pretty awesome to have a mini USB network cluster going).

A generic example can be found here.

0. Get USB networking between all of the involved devices going (not going in-depth on this, look it up):

Sample /etc/network/interfaces:
CODE
iface usb0 inet static
address 192.168.2.4
netmask 255.255.255.0
gateway 192.168.2.1


Then run:
CODE
ifup usb0


If all went well, you should be networked.

1. Install the necessary tools (both machines):
CODE
sudo apt-get install build-essential automake autoconf python2.5-dev


2. Download the latest distcc source (3.1 as of this writing, both machines unless you want to compile and transfer):
CODE
wget http://distcc.googlecode.com/files/distcc-3.1.tar.gz


3. Build distcc (both machines, once again, unless you want to compile and transfer):
CODE
tar -xf distcc-3.1.tar.gz
cd distcc-3.1
./configure --prefix=/usr --without-get --without-gnome --disable-Werror
make
sudo make install


4. Add a "distcc" user (both machines):
CODE
useradd distcc


5. Start the server (both machines, I believe):
CODE
distccd --daemon --allow "127.0.0.1 xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx"


6. On the machine "doing" the build, export the hosts:
CODE
export DISTCC_POTENTIAL_HOSTS='127.0.0.1 xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx'


7. Run the build ("host" machine only, NUMBER_OF_THREADS should probably be the number of machines available + 1, IIRC):
CODE
cd /to/source/dir/
pump make -jNUMBER_OF_THREADS CC=distcc


8. Check to make sure everything is working (on "host" machine only):
CODE
distccmon-text


If you see something like:
CODE
object_abc.o [0]: localhost
object_xyz.o [1]: 192.168.2.3


Sample speedups:
Building distcc using distcc (N810 and SL-C3100, using "pump make -j3 cc=distcc"):4 minutes, 49 seconds
Building distcc using only the N810: 4 minutes, 52 seconds

That's not really the speedup I was hoping for, but I'll try to build some other things and see how it pans out.

Anyway, I hope somebody finds this useful.
