Anyone know how to send a WOL Magic Packet from a Zaurus?
31 Aug 2006
Work and life changes have caused me to leave my Z sitting in the case for some weeks, going on months now.

I'm considering selling it with accesories. Here is the list:

Zaurus SL-C760 (FYI: same hardware as 860)
Power adaptor that came with it (100V, 50/60Hz)
- The Japanese use 100V, not 110, but this has been used on 110V here in the US for almost three years with no problems or excessive heat.
USB Cable (The 760/860 do USB client, not host)
Large battery w/ large cover (that comes with the 760
Small custom battery w/ small cover.
- This battery was bought on the forum. It was custom made. It has more power than the normal small battery from sharp. I love being able to make my 760 small, and still get plenty of use from it. Makes it more pocketable
Socket Low Power WiFi card
-Has been tested to work with SHARP Rom, Cacko, and pdaXrom. It probably will work with any ROM.
Socket Low Power Ethernet LAN card (10Mbit, works with all ROMs that I have tried)
Compact Flash 5in1 Adaptor
-This lets you plug 5 other flash cards into the CF slot. I used it for reading SmartMedia cards from my camera, and for copying files from one SD card to another. It is not tiny, it sticks out of the slot quite a bit.
Case Logic case with belt clip that fits very nicely.

I also have a few SD cards. 1gig, 256meg, 128meg. I would be willing to throw one of those in for the right price.

I don't want to Ebay this poor guy. I'd rather see it go to a good home.

I'm not sure what price to ask. Here is a quick break down of the item prices via retail:
SL-C760 - $300 used from Conics.net (I originally paid about $700 for it almost 3 years ago!)
Socket WiFi Card - currently $70 Low price on Froogle
Socket LAN Card - curently $70 Low price on Froogle
Small Battery - Purchased on Forum for $50
Case - $15 (what I paid for it)

Total: $505 not including any SD card.

If you are interested, please make me an offer here or PM me. I won't be offended by any offers, just don't be offended if the offers cause me to decide not to sell it. smile.gif

I am in the US, but I'll ship anywhere if you want to pay for it.

There comes a DAY, when you don't need a pdA.

P.S. I have the box, Japanese manuals and the CD too.

P.P.S. It is currently running pdaXrom Beta3 quite succesfully, but I am willing to flash any ROM onto it that you want.

[EDIT]: I also have a Belkin IR Keyboard (FBU1500-T) that I use with pdaXrom.

Mplayer 1.0pre8 is out ( http://www.mplayerhq.hu/design7/news.html ), and it supports some file formats that pre7 did not. Some that I have wanted to use for some months now.

So how do I build mplayer 1.0pre8 for pdaX? Or is there someone that knows how that wants to throw it together for all of us?

My Socket WiFi card used to work fine, "out of the box," but on Beta3, nothing.

dmesg tells me this:
spectrum_cs: Cannot find firmware: symbol_sp24t_prim_fw
spectrum_cs: Firmware download failed
hermes @ IO 0xf6000000: Timeout waiting for card to reset (reg=0x0000)!
wlan0: failed to initialize firmware (err = -110)
spectrum_cs: register_netdev() failed

Any ideas?

Ok, I had to reflash my Z today, so I figured I would use Beta3.

When I open a document in AbiWord that was created with Microsoft Word, the text is ALL question marks.

Anyone have ANY ideas? I've scoured the web and the forums, but it appears it is supposed to "just work."

Thanks for any suggestions.


Remove abiword 2.4.2
Install abiword_2.4.0_armv5tel.ipk from the Beta2 feed here http://zaurus.spy.org/feeds/cacko/pdaXrom/...eta2/c760/feed/

All is happy again.

There is apparently a problem with the abiword 2.4.2 from here http://mail.pdaxrom.org/contrib/1.1.0beta3...s-7x0-860/feed/

I don't know if this will affect Beta4 and on or not.
