Hi guys. I've been looking at the Ubuntu forums, and got stuck on the library issue killing apt updates in the most recent release. Zubuntu is very cool, and, as a result, I'd like to go with a full-on ubuntu-with-working-repos setup on my Z. Do we have one? Is one looming in the future? As I said I've really enjoyed the versions of this I tried, and I appreciate the work that has gone into it. At this point my Z's best hope for staying in regular action is a real distro of jjust this kind.

Iphone 3gs here, though I really like the look of the new 'droid. The Iphone does quite a lot, and my Z's will become tiny webservers and stuff like that as soon as a stable OS with 'real' distro feeds is working. That is really close, of course.

All this seemed to do is to remove most of my system..then crash. Presumably I missed something?

I don't use them much anymore,and might be willing to part with them if they go to a good home for a reasonable price.

I have cacko working from Nand, but a card installable cacko image, that worked from media more or less like zubuntu or angstrom would be really interesting, too.


I would imagine it wouldnt be any different. Just partition your SD card, extract the Cacko root fs to said partition, place a Cacko kernel in and appropriate kernel-cmdline in /boot on said partition and kexec-boot should be able to see it.

Is your Cacko installed in a kexec-boot system? Were my assumptions about the installation process correct (i.e. is it easy enough to find the kernel amongst the Cacko install "media", and will the kernel-cmdline work?

I have two C3200s and I have never made use of the NAND partition on either of them. What I have seen of the Sharp rom disgusts me, and I am not in the slightest bit interested in Cacko from what I know of it (no offense to the developer) but that funky cut down version of pdaxrom could be fun to have in NAND.

I would really love Poky in NAND too but I have no idea how you would do that.

To be honest NAND scares me just don't know much about how it is all laid out or if there is important stuff there...



My cacko is installed in a kexec system. The easiest way to make the kernel-cmdline work from the nand install is to do cat /proc/cmdline > (partition)/boot/kernel-cmdline. works like a charm. I'd probably just copy the kernel-cmdline from the zubuntu default setup to the sd or cf partition and see how that went. The part I'm not sure about is how to extract the cacko root fs from nand to a partition...

Incidentally, while I kind of agree that the sharprom is ugly, cacko does make for a handy zpod/pda option. I moved to zubuntu form a really solid pdaXrom setup because pdaXrom is decent as a media player, but it isn't very pdaish, and other than the bvdd acceleration in the 2.4 kernel is just completely outclassed as an X based linux desktop by the newer software in zubuntu. This is of course assuming one is looking for functions, and not simply wanting to play with systems. I think my next system to play with will probably be bsd...

Will alsa work? the mixer seems to "understand" the Z's capabilities pretty well, I just don't seem to have any sound actually coming out yet... suggestions?


Open alsamixer from the console and enable all mixers you can find disabled (labeled as [MM]), then carefully disable those you dont need or which have implications on the sound quality.
You might also want to use a headset to adjust headset sound.

Thanks. I reflashed to minimize complications. reinstalled mplayer, etc. alsamixe "sees" everything, but I can't seem to get sound output, which makes me think I'm missing something really obvious. I've been playing with the "mm" buttons, but without getting sound. Couls anyone tell me what their alsa-mixer has truned on to get sound output?

How does one change the desktop in Jaunty? I tried installing GDM, but that pretty much killed the installation. I find I prefer the lxde desktop in Cortez's hardy to icewm, and I'd like to try it in jaunty.

Hmm, not too fond of the Omegamoon kernel?
How about an upgrade to the 2.6.30 kernel then. I just got a working version ;-)

I can't seem to open omegamoon.com
Otherwise this is perfect timing smile.gif

Keep us posted on this? (Including how you got something working) The Yonggun kernel looks like it has some very nice features...

you need connman-gnome frontend to connect, is the tray application
connman is the daemon
anyway, if you still can't connect just remove the connman package and restore /etc/network/interfaces file

tried connman-gnome. no joy so far. I'll poke at it this weekend. At worst, even flashing doesn't take very long, and my screwing around in a new system might simply require that I flash a few times before I have a feel for it (though I have been using ubuntu on my desktop for years). Thanks

I don't think either IceWM or JWM has desktop icons. You could use something like PCManFM to do it, which shouldn't eat TOO much memory.

I may be wrong about my RAM usage/lightness comparisons, but I seem to recall that JWM, IceWM, and EvilWM actually used similar amounts of RAM (as reported by top). Fluxbox was ever so slightly heavier. Like I said, the speed differences are likely more due to lack of optimization and/or what tasks are running at the time.

What do you mean by "better matching of input with the Z?"


I didn't think JWM supported icons, just mentioning it as something handy.

Better input matching meant menu keymapping, ability to use the "screen buttons," that sort of thing. I'm sure much of it can be done manually.

JWM is about the same heaviness as IceWM, IIRC. It also lacks some things (like full-screen maximization), leading me to dump it.

If you want light, go EvilWM. You need to edit the source to reconfigure keybindings, but it works wonders.

Also know that some of the heaviness/slowness you may be feeling is due to Ubuntu not using Zaurus-friendly optimizations.

Hope that helps.


Ice is fine, I simply seemed to recall jwm being actually lighter and looking pretty similar.Quite possibly I am mistaken.

I wouldn't mind desktop icons and better matching of input with the Z though smile.gif

Just out of curiosity, which Cacko kernal did you wind up using? I could not get eviljazz's kernel to work with this, no matter what I tried.
Glad you got it working though.

I did a restore form trisoft's image, flashed cacko..had issues for a bit. what I ended up doing was flashing cacko, doing the no hd patch (which I suspect of having side effects) installing eviljazz's fastfpe cahchedfb kernel AND the modules, catting the cmdline over to the /boot/kernel_cmd and adding the same eviljazz zImage to the /boot dir. It seems to work, but I am having wifi issues..sadly now I am having them on both cacko and zubuntu because I installed connman and can no longer get dhc to work, but that is a story for another thread, and I can use the cacko boot to install a new zubuntu image if necessary smile.gif

I'm using cacko from nand in a zubuntu dualboot setup. The cacko install has the eviljazz fastfpe-cachedfb kernel and his modules installed, and has had the disk-free patch applied. When I insert my Ambicom wifi card it is correctly identified by an on-screen pop-up, and then remains, apparently, uninitalized (and unavailable). The card works fine for zubuntu jaunty, and I think used to be automatically recognized in cacko/sharprom. I'd like to get wifi going in cacko as well as zubuntu- Any suggestions?

Has anyone considered running jwm in jaunty? I tried it with default settings from the icewm menu, and it clearly needed some keymapping and tweaks, but I seem to recall that jwm is actually lighter than ice, and might be worth the effort.

When you boot Cacko the first time, before flashing the Zubuntu-kexec kernal, you can use:

cat /proc/cmdline > [location of kernal-cmdline file on SD]

to have the correct cmdline info on your SD partition. It may be different depending on your Z model.

Hope this helps...



I had to reflash and install evil jazz's kernel and modules before I did cat /proc/cmdline, etc.. but it worked great.

Now I just have to get sound in zubuntu and make cacko use my ambicom wifi smile.gif

Are the errors related to missing files? The mtdparts option in kernel-cmdline must match the partition sizes in your internal flash.



tried using cat /proc/cmdline > kernel_cmdline

Got garbage, inode errors, and finally a spawning too fast error. Previously I'd been stuck on the cacko blue loading screen.
I'm trying the eviljazz fastfpe/framebuufer kernel, because cacko will be a z-pod (no sound in ubuntu, mplayer working) using quasar and kino2

Any suggestions?

other then the lack of sound, zubunty jaunty is running fine

Thanks y'all for the replies. Will check it out. smile.gif

Cacko image ... think 1.23 is floating around ...



So I guess the file to be extraced is the .bin file in the cacko package? How does one extract this bin file to a partition on a flash device? Obviously this is what flashing the z does, but I'm not sure how to go about it manually and find myself with a working cacko image on my internal drive. Atm dual booting from the Z's internal flash has proved utterly hopeless- zubuntu works great, cacko finds new and interesting ways not to boot despite my various attempts.Booting from a card partion seems like a better way to go, anyway

This is how I configured my C3100.

I installed cacko normally to the NAND.

I installed the patch avail here to remove the need for the part hard drive partitions:

https://www.oesf.org/forum/index.php?s=&...st&p=176430

Then I created a couple of partitions on an SD card, one to hold the Zubuntu OS and one to point to the install of cacko on the NAND.

All I did to get cacko working is in the /boot partition on the sd card was place the zImage file and the kerel-cmdline containing the text below

console=ttyS0 root=/dev/mtdblock2 mtdparts=sharpsl-nand:7168k@0k(smf),32768k@7168k(root),-(home) jffs2_orphaned_inodes=delete EQUIPMENT=0 LOGOLANG=1 DEFYEAR=2006 LOGO=1 LAUNCH=q


what this does is load the zImage file from SD then loads the rest of cacko from the internal memory.

Ok..I'm missing something. All I can manage following these directions is to hanf on the cacko blue loading screen. I bet I entered the kernel_cmdline wrong. What should it look like in the text editor?

Also, did you resize the cacko root partition to 32 as the cacko directions call for?

I'm having the stuck on the blue "loading cacko and qtopia screen. Any suggestions? D&M nand utils of some kind reflash cacko? I'd like to get this going, mostly for eviljazz's audio updates.

Zubuntu (jaunty) is running great, though.
