Hi, Nico (Sam Hell).

To set the partition higher than 45MB,  You must use C760's Kernel rather than C750's one.

See.

/etc/X11/kb/corgi.xmodmap
See the xmodmap man page for altering tips. Online manpage
I made myself a Hungarian keymap, so ask me if you can't figure it out how to get an umlaut a.

Cool thx

i´ll try it immediatly, in the hardest case i have to copy and paste the ä,ö,ü
from a german text into the keymap

Unfortunatelly gtkboard is "this big". You would need to rewrite the code of the games to be smaller.
You know that you can move windows if you try to grab and drag them anywhere while holding down the ALT (usually Address) button? It's not convenient but it's usable.

Yes i know that, but it´s a little bit odd to scroll i.e. tetris first up, look what
kind of stone comes done, scroll down, find a place for it and then wait until it
falls into the visible area  (worst case scenario  ).

I don't know anything about this, try to watch the "log" window or (better) try to install the ipk with the command $ ipkg install packagename.ipk

That´s the problem, the logfile in the packetmanager is empty.
But thanks for the command, i will try that from now on.
(i´m a friend of Shell´s anyway...)

Good luck, have fun,
Zumi

i´m having fun, but the luck "lacks" a bit...

Thx a lot from germany to hungary



@hine: the installation on the C750 functions with a partition of 45MB, and to be
honest... i´m far to new in linux to play with kernel´s.
But thx for the tip, i copied the url and keep that for later in mind.

Have fun @japan


cya,
Nico

Hi zumi,
please give me some more hints about the german keyboard. I changed my corgi-file in /etc/X11/kb, but whatever I put in, afterwards the fn-key didn't work at all. I found a file called de with german keyboard symbols changes, but I don't know exactly where to link the information. I would like to make a keyboard layout, which can be switched on instead of the russian mappings.
Any help appreciated. Thanks in advance.

hi folks !

i had tried quite a long time ago to launch a corgi.xmodmap file collection but it did not wok.

See : https://www.oesf.org/forums/inde...8&hl=collection

 Maybe we should launch it once more and, why not, have some ipks availiable. I think Cacko rom has some thing like that... it would be very interesting for those who, like me, use their Z as a word processing tool !

see you !

Hey, I don't know what's wrong with the file editing. This is not a do-it-every-day-work that you can't do once...
It's not hard, you only have to mate the characters with words like grave, acute, circumflex, tilde, dieresis, ring, etc...
Look into these xmodmap files (the Hungarian has a lot of special chars in it) to get the idea.

That would be nice

And could you tell me why installation of ipkg´s from cf or sd doesn´t
function (per packet manager), only with "ipkg install" in the shell?

What am i doing wrong???

and @hine: thx again for the hint, have flashed the zaurus twice today, and
now i also got the bigger partition
It isn´t that hard to achieve anyway... why don´t you said that earlier? *joke*

So even i got it now running very well with a lot more space available.

scannig for additional xmodmap files (and according national flags' PNGs) would be very appreciated!

i have made the czech keyboard files, for switching kbd mapping i use the original 'keyrus' applet (which is somehow dirty solution -- only two mappings can be "installed" simultaneously, original files are only replaced, however, no compilation is necessary.)

see also discussion at: Czech ZUG or pdaXrom C860 Czech keyboard mappings (both in czech language)

I have managed to get x up and running using your great instructions for a c750, thanks!!

Hi, I am very much new to linux and cant decide between cacko or pdaxrom so am experimenting (cacko has been unstable with screen going off and rebooting).

Apologies if this is too newbie-ish but I am finding it difficult to navigate around like finding files on my sd and opening them in say xpdf. (Cacko seemed =much easier for moving around). Also, most important for me - can you point me to packages for 1)some sort of handwriting - surely the 750 needs this for portrait mode? and 2)vncserver/client?

Final question - should I make my sd ext2 rather than fat so I can install say Perl and mySQL on it, or even Gimp? Space is a BIG problem on the 750.

Many thanks again for your help and this brilliant site - I would have left my zaurus in a drawer without all your enthusiasm and knowledge!

1) only on screen keyboard is readily available.
2) search a bit the forum, and look at Feed Changes to see where you can start to look for ipks
3) ext2 is better, because vfat does not support some features of ext2 (like symbolic link), though some SD doesn't not like ext2 too much and you won't be able to see it in windows as is.

While you are at it  read the forum guidelines, like one thread per question, and try to search the forum first.

Mark -- Please don't be offended by this... what happens is that when there is 1 question in an initial
post and a thread of followups -- it makes it better for searching for information.  If a thread switches
from one topic to another, it only convolutes the information.  It may seem silly to create 3 4 or 5 new
topics (ie: threads) just for 3,4 or 5 questions... but the questions that are easily answered will be answered
quickly -- and the items that take a lot of work and dicussion will remain current.

Next, the more this is done, the easier it will be to search for answers and hit a relevant thread
and not a thread about one or more random things where your answer is buried some 12 screen
pages down.

I thought I might post this here, too. In the thread "Xwindows crashing" I reported
that the Xwindows would crash after two seconds or so (for a list of dmesg and
other facts see my latest post there). I have reflashed and the result is always the
same: for a while everything works and then, after a reboot, it has the same
symptoms again.

Guys,

It states in the bug fixes list, the following:

But when I load up my 6004 Rev B Socket Wifi card it is not detected properly. I am using RC8 without the additional patches that came out Dec 25th. Does one of those fix the problem for me? Please help. Thanks!

Guys,

I'm sorry to bug you again, but I've still had no success with this and I would very much appreciate any help from anyone who has this working, even some words of encouragement would be nice. For example if a single soul was to confirm that this is working for him/her I would continue to chip away. Thanks!
