It's quite frustrating that none of the zaurus distros come with nano preinstalled sad.gifsad.gif

does anyone know how i can install it? what libs do i need, etc.

I downloaded the nano binary from ZSI, and ncurses-base and libncurses5 from ipkgfind.

couldnt someone make a nice ipkg of all that? sad.gif

I accidently deleted some file (cant remember what, but i get a kernel panic when i try to boot now)

And i cant reflash any image on to my SL-5500!

Ive followed the instructions completely and still nothing, the lights just stay off when i let go of the buttons and reset, help!

Ive tried this on three different OZ roms (3.3.5/opie, 3.5.1/opie, 3.5.1/gpe).

I assume this happens on all windows XP versions although I am using SP2 (Am I the only one? Alot of people i know have had great trouble installing it)

If you plug the zaurus in while its on, USB Networking fails and windows gives you the "USB Device Not Recognised" error, which i have _never_ seen before.

However, if you turn the zaurus off using the battery compartment slider, then turn it back on, and plug it in before it's booted, usb networking works fine. However, if you unplug it after you plugged it in and its all loaded up, the "USB Device Not Recognised" error come back.

This doesnt happen on the Sharp ROM, i havent tried anything else yet, i did a quick search and didnt find anything on the boards, has anyone else seen this before?

Zaurus SL-5500, OpenZaurus 3.3.5 (Clean install)

The workaround for wireless encryption on the OZ FAQ doesnt work.

Error for wireless request "Set Encode" (8B2A) :
SET failed on device wlan0 ; Operation not supported

Im using a Linksys WCF12 Card, wireless with encryption works on Sharp ROM / Qtopia

USB Networking doesnt work on windows either

Ive tried the New Sharp ROM 3 drivers, as well as the old old drivers that came with my Zaurus CD, as well as the drivers from the UK sharp site (the really olllld drivers).

Forum search revealed nothing, neither did google search.

Infact USB cradle is useless, windows just spits out "Internet Connecton 3 has limited or no connection to the Network"
