Rom Discussion On Tosa

Is there any other rom with wifi working out of the box or from the connect icon for the 6000..it seams a shame to waste that feature and have to input script to use it every time.
[div align=\"right\"][a href=\"index.php?act=findpost&pid=139037\"][{POST_SNAPBACK}][/a][/div]

I have not found one other then the QT based off the sharp rom.  I have had some sucess with wlanfe and wlanfe2 but they only give me a gui frontend to work with the wlan-ng driver, they do not search out for the networks around.  Though it might not be that hard to add that functionalitly since you can uses:

Code: [Select]
wlanctl-ng wlan0 dot11req_scan bsstype=any bssid=ff:ff:ff:ff:f
f:ff ssid= scantype=both channellist="01:02:03:04:05:06:07:08:09:0a:0b:00:00:00" minchanneltime=300  maxchanneltime=500 append=true

I even have a script(found it on the internet) that prints out all of the networks around me.  I have not had time to make it into something better such as a efl or gtk app.

Here is my wlan_scan script:

Code: [Select]
#!/bin/sh
PATH=/sbin:$PATH

ChannelList="01:02:03:04:05:06:07:08:09:0a:0b:00:00:00"
ChannelMinTime=300
ChannelMaxTime=500

modprobe ohci_hcd
modprobe prism2_usb prism2_doreset=1
result=`wlanctl-ng wlan0 lnxreq_ifstate ifstate=enable`
exit_code=$?
eval $result
if [ $exit_code != '0' ] || [ $resultcode != 'success' ]; then
        echo "wlan init error"
        exit 1;
fi

result=`wlanctl-ng wlan0 dot11req_scan bsstype=any bssid=ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff ssid= scantype=both channellist=$ChannelList minchanneltime=$ChannelMinTime  maxchanneltime=$ChannelMaxTime append=true`
eval $result
if [ $resultcode != 'success' ]; then
  echo "wlan scan error"
  exit 1;
fi

index=0
resultcode=success
while [ $resultcode = 'success' ]; do
       result=`wlanctl-ng wlan0 dot11req_scan_results bssindex=$index`
       eval $result
       if [ $resultcode = 'success' ]; then
                basic_rates=''
               for ((i=8; i; i=`expr $i - 1`)); do
                       eval "rate=$basicrate$i"
                       if [ "x$rate" != 'xno_value' ]; then
                               basic_rates="$rate $basic_rates"
                       fi
               done

               support_rates=''
               for ((i=8; i; i=`expr $i - 1`)); do
                       eval "rate=$supprate$i"
                       if [ "x$rate" != 'xno_value' ]; then
                               support_rates="$rate $support_rates"
                       fi
               done
               echo "SSID   = $ssid"
               echo "TYPE   = $bsstype"
               echo "MAC    = $bssid"
               echo "CHAN   = $dschannel"
               echo "WEP    = $privacy"
               echo "SIGNAL = $signal"
               echo "NOISE  = $noise"
               echo "BASIC RATES  = $basic_rates"
               echo "SUPORT RATES = $support_rates"
               echo '-----------------------------------------------'
       fi
       index=`expr $index + 1`
done

Thanks manik, I was able to fix the screen rotation issue pretty easily following your suggestion. Here are my solutions and the wiki will be updated.

Code: [Select]
1)modify /usr/bin/rotate.sh
change "left" to "right"

2) modify /etc/sysconfig/clamshell/scripts.d/x11src

make the corresponding lines look like the following

landscape(){
/usr/X11R6/bin/xrandr -o normal
xmodmap /etc/X11/kb/tosa.xmodmap

portrait(){
/usr/X11R6/bin/xrandr -o right
xmodmap /etc/X11/kb/tosa_right.xmodmap

3) make a copy of tosa.xmodmap to tosa_right.xmodmap
fix keys in tosa_right.xmodmap

the latest OZ 3.5.4.2-rc2 is pretty good, I reflashed to Opie and it looks pretty good. Well worth giving it a try.

there is a way using compatibility libraries to install Opera - see the OZ threads, but it's not quite trivial.

konqueror is getting pretty good these days. Even Dillo is now far from useless.

ok..dl'd OZ 3.5.4 (newest I could find for tosa.)

Thought I'd try altbooting to a cf...maybe even give e17 a whirl......  
but all came to a screeching halt when I completely failed to find an updater.sh file!

Anyone have the updater?  would you mind posting it or pointing me to it?  the only feed I could find for tosa:  

http://linuxtogo.org/mirror/openzaurus.org....4/images/tosa/

 had an updater.sd.md5, but no actual file

It should be 2.6, but a 'uname -a' in the console should give you the correct answer

2.6.17. faster. no more orange lines, either.
Networking seems to come up automatically, though I have to write in a few profiles.


definitely a big improvement on the 6000. Thanks

nice! Does that mean if there was a pdaxrom beta4 for Tosa, it should be able to use the same driver?

they'd  pretty much using the same kernel, I think...so a tentative yes?
BUt pdaXrom doesn't go past beta1....  a shame, too --OZ is noticeably faster and smoother with the 2.6 kernel than with the latest tosa 2.4 pdaX or 2.4 OZ

Ok. 3.5.2 is really nice on the 6k so far. Even though i have 2 z's it is heartwarming to see the 6k kept up to date-its a marvellous box and with an up-to-date linux is still way better than most handhelds released this year

The next question is----  is there an Angstrom release for the 6k (w/ eabi, n ot that I'd immediately have a use for eabi, It just seems sensible)?

at any rate, I think I'll give e17 a spin on the 6000 this week

ps - meant to say (above) 2.6 was noticeably faster than any of the availble 2.4 systems on the 6k as far as I can tell. fixed it.
