I'm tempted since I have to re-flash anyways.

Does this Beta fix the suspend/resume problems? Is that what "kernel updated with cacko patches" means?

I just flashed beta2 on my akita. While I haven't used it much yet, I did test my wireless card, a D-Link Air DCF-660W that I reported as not working in beta1. It seems to work fine in beta2. I'll report again after I've used the new beta release more extensively, but so far looks like good work.

Flashed and waiting tonight to cross compile all GPE PIM stuff and new ver. of GPSDRIVE to test the new GTK+ packaging.
Suspend and resume seems to work better.
The only problem is the poor battery power, that for a PDA with internal HD is a very big hassle!!!
BYEZ!!

Does this mean you no longer need to sit around while it restarts the window manager after being switched off for a while?

What I really want to know is are the kde dev packages available for this new beta? Well, more to the point, as I'm really not that bothered about being able to compile my own pdaxrom KDE apps (although it would be very good) I just want a kword package for pdaxrom! Surely I'm not the only one wanting something better than HancomWord on the Z? Last time I tried pdaxrom (beta1 for C3000) Abiword was very buggy and damn slow so I'm hoping kword will be better (I WOULD NOT run it under KDE, of course- KDE + 64MB RAM = yuk! )

Yes it means this, i found it more responsive and faster in resuming.

I' m sorry danboid but i didn' t use KDE on Desktop because i find it too slow, i will sure not keep it on the Zauri.
I tried to install KDE with all the QT on the Zauri last month was terrifiing!! Too slow! I don' t really know how you can use it with a thing that u have to bring with yourself in car or while moving.
Just starting thunderbird is too slow for me, think that.
BYEZ!

Yes, I know KDE would be unusable on a Z (unless, maybe, you're lucky enough to have a modded Z w/128MB RAM) but you don't need to run KDE to run KDE programs like kword, you just need the kdelibs installed. I was told the reason that kword hasn't been ported to pdaxrom yet is because the kde dev packages for the last beta never got released so I just want to know if this has changed and if KDE has been updated to 3.5.1?

I flashed today to the Beta 2 and found the orinoco drivers from my Socket WiFi card are working. dmesg shows a firmware error:
Code: [Select]
spectrum_cs 0.15rc2HEAD (Pavel Roskin , David Gibson , et al)
spectrum_cs: Cannot find firmware: symbol_sp24t_prim_fw
spectrum_cs: Firmware download failed
wlan0: failed to initialize firmware (err = -16)
spectrum_cs: register_netdev() failed

I may try and recompile the kernel as I did for last version but was hoping the orinoco drivers were already patched for the monitor mode issue...

OK, I found that simply copying the orinoco modules from Chris Bryden fixes the problem.

Simply
Code: [Select]
# cd /
# tar xzvf /location-of-file/orinoco-modules.tar.gz
Then pop in your card and away you go.

To get the card to go into monitor mode for kismet, you'll need to
Code: [Select]
# iwconfig eth0 mode monitor
Cheers,
Jerry

You are my saviour

Thnak you so much

I confirm that it's faster to resume now, no more redrawings twice like I had with beta1 especially using ROX-desktop.

Thanks Pdax Team
