4gb Sd Support \ Usb Storage / Suspend
« on: August 10, 2006, 07:07:27 pm »
Anybody tried a 4GB SD card with 3.5.4.1 GPE on a spitz?

I would like a big 3rd partition in FAT32 format easily accessible over a cable/ USB storage link. Is there a GPE GUI tool for setting up a USB storage link, is it just automatic or does it require some manual setting up? I've never got USB networking to work so please don't suggest that as an alternative- way too much hassle.

Does suspend work fine under OZ/GPE 3.5.4.1 on the spitz?

Tried the card< worked fine.  What you want to do is like the pdaXrom thing--pointing windows at a partition on the sd and having it think the z is a usb thummbdrive of that size, right?  Looked at that briefly in OZ, had other network problems while travelling< fled to cacko/pdaxqt (which defintely does not do this) and haven't tried since.  It seemed like the guil should handle it, though--I take since you are posting that it doesn"t?

As you can see in my sig, I'm running Cacko ATM. Last time I tried installing OZ/GPE, I goofed it by not partitioning my drive first so I ran out of space on / very quickly. This coupled with the lack of video overlay (accel) and missing cookies/javascript support under gpe-minibrowser sent me back to Cacko. I'm willing to put up with no video for a while if I can get everything else running stably. I can use Yahoo! mail under OZ/Dillo right?

To be honest I don't remember if I even tried to get usb storage working last time I tried OZ. I did get it working under the super-unstable pdaxrom b2 for c3000 but I had to be logged in as root on my PC if I wanted to read and write to my ext2 / , which was the partition (it was the only partition on my Z) being shared. That shouldn't be the case under OZ as I will have a FAT32 partition, but is there a util for this and does it work?

Whilst I was experimenting with pdaXrom I got to see a recent version of gpe-pim. How up to date is the one currently in 3.5.4.1? Does wake on alarm under gpe-calendar work out-of-the-box now?
