OESF Portables Forum _ Zaurus - Arch Linux ARM support _ Linux Kernel 5.0

Posted by: greguu Apr 17 2019, 09:53 PM

I have not updated the rootfs for ALARMZ (ArchLinuxARM Zaurus) for a while. I hope there are still some of you out there using it. It would be really good to know if you are. If you like to try a newer Linux Kernel on your Zaurus, please check out this post on the Voidz section in the forum. If there is enough interest, I will release a newer ALARMZ rootfs including the 5.0 kernel.

Note: If you like to test and run the kernel, you will need to download, install it and update your boot.cfg manually.

Thanks for this release. It is heartwarming to see the Zaurus still running the latest version of the Linux kernel. And yes, it would be nice to find out how many users are using Voidz and/or Alarmz.

Just checking in as a new user of Arch Linux on Zaurus C3100 . Currently updated to latest packages with 4.14.kernel.

After all this years I am still a big fan of SHARP/Zaurus and cant't wait to see new developments to come up.
Glad to see, OESF is alive and back again!

Rgds,
Stefan

Glad to see you back Stefan ! I'm also still a Zaurus fan, and others too here.

Congrats for your Zaurii collection, really impressive! Have you bought them on the japanese Yahoo Auction site, or have you managed to find all of them locally?

Hello Varti,
I purchased most of my Zaurus-Devices step by step through eBay over the last 10+ years.
Nowadays it is more and more difficult to get hands on moderate priced Zauries.
But some Zauries are still advertised to be broken, even they are easily to be repaired. :-)

In the other side, SHARP CE/PC-xxxx are offered a lot on Japanese Auction-Sites like "buyee.jp".
It seems Zaurus-Devices are not very popular in Japan!

Rgds,
Stefan

Last year I have managed to pick up 12 different Zaurus models within a month, on buyee.jp, I have paid between 5 and 40 euros for each of them. The 7xx models are quite common, and so are the xx00 ones. What are difficult to find are the 5600 and the a300, I have seen only a couple of them being sold last year. Currently I have counted 7 SL models being sold, you just need to have patience and check every 2-3 days for the ones you're looking for to appear.

We're now off-topic, better to open a new thread, I can move these posts there if you agree.
