1.1.0r121 Is Out!
« Reply #45 on: September 25, 2006, 08:06:27 am »
that's not the only problem on 860.

mapping in aterm is wrong, xterm doesn't work at all, and when you leave X mapping is not working anymore.
Wifi is buggy, touchscreen input sometimes lags or lose precision (when you use the on-screen keyboard you press a key and another one is actually pressed, while the cursor is far away from that...). Charging light turns off after a few seconds even if not completely charged. Not usable, actually, even for easy tasks.

2devs: Did you know of all these bugs? Have you an 860 to work on? It looks like you're working only on xx00. Maybe our bug-reportings about 860 aren't that good. Let us know about it.

Hi folks,

sorry, I was a bit fast to complain on charging. I don't know what happened, but now charging on my C860 seems to work. After I unplugged power it started to charge and since then it works fine (stopping when it is full, restarting correctly).

Apart from WiFi, which I was not able to test yet, everything so far works fine for me! This version seems much better than Beta4 which was already the best one so far.

- Backlight control works fine now
- Installation was smooth
- Installation of apps is 100% accurate
- It seems even faster than Beta4!

This is a really amazing release!

Is there any possibility to perform a NAND-RESTORE with this version? (which is essential for switching between versions during the long period of finetuning!)
I tried SD and CF with FAT. NAND-Backup works fine but NAND-Restore always ends up with "format error". The old Beta3-Nand-Backup restores without problems.
Any experiences so far?

Hi,

as I said: no problems so far (I'm still searching for the right mouse button, FN+"mouse click" does not work??).

Concerning charging:
I unplugged power and after a few seconds the icon changed from green "charging" to blue "battery indicator". After a few seconds I plugged power again and the charging light went on plus the icon changed to green "charging" again.
Charging works fine now. Charging lamp goes off when full which was not the case in Beta1.

All I did on installation was:

- install new u-boot
- install new release
- install rox, gnumeric, kdepimpi, planner, vim and all depending packages
- change desktop to rox
- applied bugfix to get brightness-keys to work (see [a href=\"https://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=20563]https://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=20563[/url] for details)

WiFi I will test today.

ok, now try this:

open Aterm
write "xterm" and enter
try to write something in xterm - if you see strange characters that's a problem
press CTRL+C in Aterm to close xterm - if you see strange characters instead of xterm closing, that's a problem
now exit from X (menu, exit, ok)
try to press "a" - if you cannot enter the "a" character, that's a problem

Let me know

Hi there,

just installed r121 to my C860. I found that the apm for 860 is
not working. the battery is at 5% all the time and is not charging
at all since the charging (amber) light is not on.

Can anyone help ?

BR,

Felix.

Hi iczer3,

Your C860 has the same apm issue as my 7500C. I guess the reason why anunakin says it's OK is because he uses C3100, which at least has some different hardware than C7x0.

I'm just thinking about the possible ways to fix this issue:

1. We can ask Sashz to modify his code or the configuration for C7x0 and release another build. (But Sashz needs to find out what caused the problem)

2. Since the apm in OZ/GPE is working pretty well, can we borrow something from it's rom? My knowledge doesn't allow me to do that by myself now. But someone might be able to do that. I think the apm is a very essential part for pdaXrom. (Right now if I unplug my 7500 it will shut off right away. The testing guys in my company will call it a "Lines down" level 0 defect).

BTW, has anyone tried to build pdaXrom using pdaX86 LiveCD and the pdaXrom builder? I found that it's a very time consuming process and takes up a lot of disk space. But I suppose anyone can use that to build his own pdaXrom with his own fixes and sumbit to Sashz for review.

Anyway, I really hope the apm and the sound issues can be fixed for C7x0 soon.

Keep up the good work Sashz!

Hi! all!!

What's nice advice for me!
I use r121 on C860, but poweroff/on didn't work fine.

apm in OZ/GPE works fine,  so I checked apm.
Its version of OZ/GPI is v3.2.2, but the one of pdaXrom is v3.2.1!!

I built latest apm package, v3.2.2-8, for pdaXrom and updated on my Z.
Then poweroff/on works better than before!!

I have been trying poweroff/on many times since apm was updated, but never failed!!

You can download my apm ipk from this URL below.
If you have some problem with apm, you might become happy by using it.

[a href=\"http://comomo.shacknet.nu/files/pdaxrom/r121/feed/apm_3.2.2-8_armv5tel.ipk]http://comomo.shacknet.nu/files/pdaxrom/r1...-8_armv5tel.ipk[/url]
(Sorry, this web is Japanese only, but no problem to download it.)

You can overwrite the original apm package with it by using "ipkg install" command.

Enjoy!!

Fatty

I have exactly the same issue in Beta4, which didn't happen with the previous version from Beta 3 backward. I did raise the issue but no one ever reply, so I assume that was  only my issue then.

Symbol Spectrum24 Firmware

Copy these to CF/SD

Code: [Select]
# mkdir -p /usr/lib/hotplug/firmware
# cp /path/to/firmware/* /usr/lib/hotplug/firmware

Unplug and plug back in...

LIGHTS!

[div align=\"right\"][a href=\"index.php?act=findpost&pid=142141\"][{POST_SNAPBACK}][/a][/div]
When I plug my Symbol Spectrum24 wifi card, the light blinks.
However I can't connect to the net.
My wifi router is set to DHCP, no wep key, ESSID airlinkplus.
I used these 2 scripts:
eth0.up
Code: [Select]
#!/bin/bash
ifconfig eth0 192.168.0.5 up
route add default gw 192.168.0.1
echo "nameserver 192.168.0.1" > /etc/resolv.conf
ifconfig eth0
and wlan0.up
Code: [Select]
#!/bin/sh
ifconfig wlan0 down
iwconfig wlan0 essid airlinkplus mode managed
ifconfig wlan0 192.168.0.5 up
route add default gw 192.168.0.1
echo "nameserver 192.168.0.1" > /etc/resolv.conf
ifconfig wlan0
thanks to anunakin
Then I did
Code: [Select]
# sh eth0.up
eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:A0:F8:B4:58:7D  
          inet addr:192.168.0.5  Bcast:192.168.0.255  Mask:255.255.255.0
          UP BROADCAST NOTRAILERS MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
          RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
          RX bytes:0 (0.0 b)  TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)
          Interrupt:137
and
Code: [Select]
# sh wlan0.up
wlan0: unknown interface: No such device
Error for wireless request "Set ESSID" (8B1A) :
    SET failed on device wlan0; No such device.
SIOCSIFADDR: No such device
wlan0: unknown interface: No such device
wlan0: unknown interface: No such device
SIOCADDRT: File exists
wlan0: error fetching interface information: Device not found

I don't know much about wifi just that it worked under beta1.
To access my router, I use 192.168.1.1 in my browser.

ok... with the spectrum wifi card... it registers as eth0...
so try this...

**eth0.up**
Code: [Select]
#!/bin/sh
ifconfig eth0 up
iwconfig eth0 essid airlinkplus mode managed
dhcpcd
sleep 5
ifconfig eth0

Code: [Select]
# sh eth0.up

Oh and note... you don't need to run both scripts only 1 or the other... in this case run the one I have above...

After that runs when ifconfig should show you your ip! Surf away!

Are you asking this so I can debug it... I will work on that... it is a keymapping issue... I am working on the issue now... I did all the steps above and the ctrl+c is the only issue I had... I will look into it...

Does suspend work for you guys?

When I try to suspend the device by pressing the on/off button, the unit suspends, but then immediately turns on!

It suspends for as long as I press the button...
