Here's a Phone, by Road GmbH called S101, in the style of the Nokia Communicators, but with what looks like a Psion keyboard and with a version that runs Linux kernel 2.6 and Qtopia:

I've finally got around to updating the Bluetooth BlueZ driver ipk.

This is only for Sharp ROMs and variants of Sharp ROMs, excluding Cacko ROMs, that use the 2.4.18 kernel. So for example this includes Sharp ROMs on SL-5500, SL-5600, SL-6000, SL-C850, but NOT SL-3000.

Here's some of the improvements:
  • Ambicom BT2000C Support. Thanks to tetron for spotting this had been included in the latest drivers. EDIT: Actually it doesn't look like this is working sad.gif
  • Socket Card Rev G Support without requiring the extra bluez-csr-serial ipk. Thanks to maslovsky for sorting this out
  • Hopefully Dlink, Mavin, Billionton, BrainBoxes, and Dell cards should all be supported 'out of the box'
  • Should work 'out of the box' on the SL-6000. (It moves /etc/pcmcia.bm3.conf out of the way on installation and back again on removal) Thanks to DrWowe for spotting what was wrong previously
  • EDIT: Included hci_usb driver would should allow SL-6000L owners to use USB Bluetooth dongles with the appropriate USB cable.
EDIT: The PAN profile should be working now as I resolved a kernel module problem.

Before installing the new ipk, backup your files under /etc/bluetooth and /etc/pcmcia/peers. Then you can easily restore them after installing the new ipk. (You will need to run '/etc/rc.d/init.d/bluetooth restart' after restoring rfcomm.conf and hcid.conf)

Also uninstall all bluez packages before installing this one, including the bluez-csr-serial, which is no longer required with the new package.

So here is the new ipk (Note: the 1st, 3rd and 4th underscores [_] in the filename need to be changed to dashes [-] after downloading):

Ack, just when I wanted to download a file from the ZUG downloads the ZUG server bandwidth utilisation is maxed out sad.gif

Seriously, what gives? I've never seen the bandwith usage this high before. I don't see any Slashdot articles linking to the ZUG.

I've tried several times to upload files, such as ipks, to the forums using Konqeuror (with several different 3.2x versions), but every time I get the error "You cannot upload a file of this type".

Yet uploading the same file with Firefox works fine. The file is sent by Konqueror, but something goes wrong with the upload somewhere.

Has anyone else had this problem?

Curious tie up between Danger (make of the Hiptop) and Sharp:


Sharp seems to be going towards Symbian, so I doubt we'll see a Linux Qtopia PE based phone sad.gif
