Price dropped and also added free shipping to anywhere in the world.

I would really like to see it become useful for a fellow forum member laugh.gif

You could check this thread for general pointers: https://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=11810

You could try to install this Meanie's package which include drivers:

http://www.users.on.net/~hluc/myZaurus/stu...tch_0.4_arm.zip

If nothing works, you must patch the pegasus module with the necessary patches. To find what the patches are, you should follow the changes in the source code of your current kernel up until the first official kernel that supported that chipset (perhaps it is 2.6.13).

Please state the exact Pananasonic cell phone model and the usb data cable model so that I can look it up.

It is also important to plug the cell phone to your Zaurus and post here the output of the commands

dmesg

and

cat /proc/bus/usb/devices

If you can't do it from the Zaurus, you can always try plugging the cell phone to a pc with linux installed and try the same commands.

I am waiting for your results so that I can modify the module and make it work for you :-)

This is a mini HOWTO regarding connecting to the internet using either GPRS or Data calling through a Nokia mobile phone, a DKU-2 usb cable (the one provided with newer Nokia phone models) and Zaurus SL-C3000 (it might work for other mobile phones and/or SL-C3100).

The reason for all this is battery consumption both for the mobile phone and the Zaurus (as using bluetooth quickly drains power from both devices).

I have tested it with Nokia 6230, Nokia 6680 and Nokia 9500 Communicator and it is working fine with all of them. My guess is that it should work with most Nokia mobile phones.

I used the patches for acm.c from the kernel 2.4.23 and a small modification. Many thanks to all the hard working people who are developing the kernel.


First of all we must make sure that the needed devices are created at boot time.

Download the attached file and then as root:

1. Copy the file acm_devices into /etc/rc.d/init.d/

2. # chmod 775 /etc/rc.d/init.d/acm_devices

3. # ln -s /etc/rc.d/init.d/acm_devices /etc/rc.d/rc5.d/S99acm_devices

4. In order to create the devices for the first time either reboot the Zaurus or

# cd /etc/rc.d/init.d
# ./acm_devices


Now we will use the modified kernel module acm-nokia.o:


1. Copy the file acm-nokia.o into /lib/modules/2.4.20/kernel/drivers/usb/

2. # depmod -a

3. Plug in your mobile phone using the USB cable.

4. If you run lsmod you should see acm and acm-nokia loaded and if you run dmesg you should see a line saying

ttyACM0: USB ACM device

5. If you want to be absolutely sure that it worked, download minicom from: http://www.elsix.org/index.php?w=project&p=923 (direct link: http://users.adelphia.net/~dyson/zaurus/minicom_2.1.tar.gz) and follow the instructions: http://users.adelphia.net/~dyson/zaurus/minicom.txt for installing it.After its installation edit the file /etc/minirc.dfl and replace on the second line whatever device there is with /dev/ttyACM0. Run minicom. It should initialize the modem-mobile phone and if you type ati3 you should get the model of your phone.


Now comes the last part: the internet connection itself.


1. Create one new IRDA connection from Settings --> Network or use an existing one. (for GPRS instructions look here: https://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=9837)

2. We now have to modify it so that it looks for the new modem /dev/ttyACM0. Find a file in /etc/ppp/peers/IRDA******* (where * are random digits) and edit it

Insert a new line with:

/dev/ttyACM0

And also just to make sure, go to the line which starts with connect '/usr/sbin/chat and delete the portion which says:

ABORT "NO CARRIER" ABORT "NO DIALTONE"


You should now be able to browse the internet.


If you can get connected but cannot view web sites,

check /etc/resolv.conf

and make sure it looks like this:

# Domain name searches will fail until you point this to a real DNS server.
nameserver 149.254.1.14
nameserver 149.254.1.15

(where the ip addresses 149.254.1.14 and 149.254.1.15 are your provider's DNS servers)


Good luck with your efforts.

Please report back if you are successful (don't forget to include your mobile phone brand and model) so that others can benefit.

I am glad to hear that you finally found it biggrin.gif

Check /etc/resolv.conf

and make sure it looks like this:

# Domain name searches will fail until you point this to a real DNS server.
nameserver 149.254.1.14
nameserver 149.254.1.15

(make sure that the ip addresses 149.254.1.14 and 149.254.1.15 are in fact your provider DNS servers)

Also, get connected through GPRS and try the command

route

on the terminal and post the results here so that we can see what happens exactly.

Sorry to hear it didn't work.

First of all try the suggestion of the member oliverb in: http://www.expansys.com/forumthread.asp?co...LACK&thread=291 as it looks most promising for your case.

If it doesn't work, please check the following:

1) I also believe that you couldn't go that far if you had any problems with the usb dongle. But just to be on the safe side, you can check for sure if the USB Bluetooth dongle works:

Download minicom from: http://www.elsix.org/index.php?w=project&p=923 (direct link: http://users.adelphia.net/~dyson/zaurus/minicom_2.1.tar.gz) and follow the instructions: http://users.adelphia.net/~dyson/zaurus/minicom.txt for installing it.

After you install it, run minicom -s and on the serial port enter the device /dev/rfcomm0

If minicom initializes the phone, you can try the commands ati0, ati1, ati2 etc to see if the phone will respond identifying itself.

2) I think the problem probably is in the ppp settings on the Zaurus or in the W800i GPRS Settings. I imagine that you can access the internet from within the phone. Look here for some info: http://jimmac.musichall.cz/weblog.php/2005/Aug/14

3) I have tried to search further on the internet but because it is a new phone there is not much info.


I am sure you are very close to working it out smile.gif

Back to the original discussion,

if and when in some years your zaurus internal drive dies,

you can always do what real men do cool.gif

open up the zaurus and replace the internal flash drive with a new one, probably with 3x or 4x its current capacity. rolleyes.gif

I have connected to the Internet with a C3000, a Longshine USB bluetooth dongle, the usb host cable and using several Nokia mobile phones:6680, 9500, 6230, 6310i.

I have checked my log in /dev/shm/tmp/qpe-pppd-log and I have noticed this difference with your log:

Your line: lcp_reqci: returning CONFREJ.

(connection rejected)

My line: lcp_reqci: returning CONFACK.

(connection acknowledged)

This means that from the first time your Zaurus fails from the first time it attempts to establish two-way connection because the default options instruct it to detect dial tone.

You can try one of the following to force it to disable dial tone detection:

1) Use the command ATX0 as the initialisation string or append X0 to your current initialisation string.

2) In the terminal:

ls /etc/ppp/peers/

You will see several files like DIALUP11123434 or IRDA124342 or BLUETOOTH242342342. Note the file beginning with BLUETOOTH****** because these is your dialup (bluetooth) profile files. Use this file on the command below:

vi /etc/ppp/peers/BLUETOOTH******

Go to the 3rd line and delete the portion which says:

ABORT "NO CARRIER" ABORT "NO DIALTONE"


Good luck with your efforts.

Please report back if you have success so that others can benefit.

The latest version of Tickypip 0.1.2 has a small bug. It doesn't look in the correct directory for the level files (/opt/Qtopia/share/tickypip/levels).

I cross-compiled it using the bug fix located at http://www.openembedded.org/oe_wiki/index.php/JasonHaslup

and fixed the ipk with the new tickypip binary.

So in order to have a full working Tickypip:

1) Download the ipk attachment on this thread.

2) Install the tickypip_0.1.2_arm_patched_for_levels_directory_bug.ipk package using Add/Remove Software on your Zaurus

3) Download the levels at http://www.hrw.one.pl/_pliki/oe/files/tick...els_1.1.tar.bz2

4) Execute the following command to unpack the levels and transfer them to your Zaurus:

$> tar xjbf tickypip-levels_1.1.tar.bz2
$> scp levels/* root@192.168.129.201:/opt/Qtopia/share/tickypip/levels/

5) That's all. Enjoy Tickypip!

Thanks to Christian Hammond for the Tickypip, Jason Haslup for the bug fix and Marcin Juszkiewicz for the Tickypip levels.

Please do not hesitate to respond to this thread with your observations and remarks.
