man, I just printed out my website so I have a hardcopy of the stuff to follow for my C3100 and turns out that there's more than a hundred pages altogether. I am thinking of revamping it a bit to add C3100 stuff to it as well and then make a pdf version of the website available for download. It could almost be a mini book.

Meanie,

I have copied your website in to a Word file. I called the file "C3000Bible", and I read it often. It is the most useful source I have for my C3100!!!

It would be wonderful to have a version in PDF, with more C3100 stuff in it!

Thank you for all your hard work on this!

Thank you Meanie!

Could you please also add at the very end the section related to XQt and Debian ( [a href=\"http://www.users.on.net/~hluc/myZaurus/jumbo/xqtjumbo.html]http://www.users.on.net/~hluc/myZaurus/jumbo/xqtjumbo.html[/url] )?

Since that section is not fully covered under "customization", that would provide extra information for some people (including myself).

Thank you again.

I was planning to do that for the next update anyway. So much to do, so little time

i have some question
what is the speed of running debian application without pocketworkstation?
is it faster than running under pocketworkstation?

after reading about flashing the Z with a new image containing thoese library, i have a thought that you may create a new rom which supports these modified debian package(maybe bulid on top of cacko)
but i know you have so less time

Hey, I was looking at your site, and I saw that you picked up a couple of difference Mini-A usb plugs. One of which was a iRiver one.

I live in Japan and since my last exword has just died, I have decided that I need a dictionary with true writing support to make sure my written Japanese improves.

I was looking at the c1000, until I found out that the nice multimedia dictionary doesn't come with it, making me rather sad. Any comments on this at all?


But now what I really am surprised about was the lack of min-A in Japan. I can not find it anywhere physically. I spent a day walking around Akihabara looking for it and did not find a single store that had it, which you can bet shocked me. Any ideas?

I don't have a c1000 so you probably might like to ask someone who has one. It lacks the thing that is important to me, space. My C3100 has 9GB with the extra CF and SD
damn, I cannot believe it. I always thought akihabara has anything you want. Last time I was there I was flabbergasted and shocked at what it had to offer. I have seen quite a few different photos of Japanese people's Zaurus with mini-a cables attached to them and all the cables looked so differently, some just had a plug-adaptor and some had very short cables, even shorter than the iriver one, so I always thought it would be easy to buy one in Japan since there was such a big variety.
Usually, Australia is the last one to get anything  so since we have mini-a cables here, I assumed there were at least a dozen different ones to choose from in Japan.
I thought akihabara was electronics paradise

Thx, I just had my friend order me one from the iriver site in America, he'll bring it to me when he comes to Japan in 2 months, along with a gig sd card.

But back to akihabara being disapointing, I've on several occasions not been able to find something, or find that it is much more expensive in akiba, it's strange since I speak Japanese and have been with Japanese people who know the area quite well.

Thx for the help, and you have an awesome site!

thanks, i spent quite some time for the contents of the site but it has paid off. i was able to ramp up and customise my 3100 very quickly.

i am surprised you didnt order the cable from the iriver site in japan or go to the iriver store in shibuya

Did you try Mobile Senka? They run this site which has the USB host cable listed. It's a little on the expensive side, though.

I'm sure it's available at other places as well, but the thing with Akihabara is that you really have to know where to look.

Your site is the best man!

One thing I can't seem to get working is swap file activated at bootup.

I tried uncommenting rc.local and putting the command
Code: [Select]
swapon /hdd3/swapfile in there, but it doesn't seem to work.

Also, adding the entry to /etc/fstab doesn't seem to work either.

Either way when I boot and run
Code: [Select]
free or
Code: [Select]
cat /proc/swaps or
Code: [Select]
cat /proc/meminfo i see no swap active.

I always have to manually perform the swapon command  

I have a C3100 with sharp rom and stock kernel.
