New Pdaxrom Release R198
« Reply #60 on: April 20, 2007, 04:39:35 pm »
i have some problems myself with the new release, as for my both 1GB Hama CF-Cards canceled working.

i reinstalled through uboot two time, but i still cant access the CF-Cards.

One of them i freshly formatted with Fat16.

Is there a command to mount them manually ?


And i would like the commands for formating Memorycardds with ext2 on the Z, for
both the card and the cf please
I had written them down, but i forget where  

i just know it was something with "etx2mf..."...
SHARP SL-C1000 @ pdaXrom 1.something.
after years of not playing with the Z now owning one again,
and restarting as a total noob again. ^^#
I apologise in advance for (m)any dumb questions...

Mounting should be something like
# mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/cf
(on my zaurus it's /dev/hdc1, but I have a C3100)

Formatting :
# umount /mnt/cf
# mkfs.ext2 /dev/hda1
# mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/cf

Good luck,
Chero.

Here's a fix permanent fix for the non-mounting problem.  It's in the first page of this thread from ZDevil:

Code: [Select]
II. Fix the card mounting issue (thanks to louigi600 for providing this)
You will notice that upon reboot after flashing, both SD and CF are not mounted.
To fix this, edit /etc/fstab. Use your favorite editor to do so.
Open the file, in the lines for /dev/hda1 (for CF) and /dev/mmcblk0p1 (for SD), change
CODE
noauto,owner

to
CODE
owner

Save the file, exit the editor.
Then the cards will be mounted automatically.

I think you need to reboot before this works.

ok, automount seems to be another problem i didnt even noticed

i get the mount working, but the CF-Cards seem to be empty under pdaxrom, what they are not. Maybe a driver problem or such *sigh*

For now, i go back to beta3, i need a working system today

Thx anyway

I am really hoping to get some networking going so I can help with debugging r198 on the C3100.

Unfortunately, it looks like the drivers are not working for my wifi card.
In dmesg, I get:
spectrum_cs: Cannot find firmware: symbol_sp24t_prim_fw
It's a socket revK low power wifi card which works well in beta3

So, I gave my ppp over bluetooth connection a shot.
Looks like the driver loads and the bluetooth card gets attached properly:
1.0: ttyS0 at I/O 0xc48403f8 (irq = 137) is a 16C950/954

but when I try using the ppp preferences, the search button doesn't work, it says "Can't get DUN info".  I have tried changing the setting from rfcomm0 to ttyS0 and my phone is definately discoverable.
Is there a way to set up the bluetooth pairing manually or am I doing something else wrong?

I feel like I may have jumped in a bit too deep but I am hoping that if I can get at least one of these going I can give it a go... I'd really appreciate a little help!

Just not to be too negative though:
- it's definately faster (even without icewm so far!)
- seems stable and robust
- supports screen reorientation
- suspend is OK and faster than beta 3, even with xmms playing (with ALSA)

Thanks, Capn_Fish.

One more question,,,maybe this is of interest to others too.  After installing uboot and r198,  if I want to return to my beta3 setup can I just do a nand restore?  Or is it a one way ticket??  :-)

[div align=\"right\"][a href=\"index.php?act=findpost&pid=158845\"][{POST_SNAPBACK}][/a][/div]

This requires three steps:
1. Do a NAND Flash Erase (in the DM menu);
2. Do a NAND Flash Restore with the original Sharp Rom image (also in the DM menu);
3. Then flash Beta3 as usual (using the "OK mode")

This probably can go to the FAQ in the new Documentation.  
[div align=\"right\"][a href=\"index.php?act=findpost&pid=158847\"][{POST_SNAPBACK}][/a][/div]

Sorry if this is a stupid question. But I am trying to go back to beta3. I can get into the DM menu fine. I did a nand flash erase no problem. But I don't have the original sharp rom. Would the Cacko rom do? or if someone can point me to the rom that would be great.

I know the pdaXrom team does not recommend it but I went from the latest (R198) back to my NAND of pdaXii13 without any intermediary steps.

Antikx, you rebel!  You sure love to live dangerously.    

Between charging your Z with an iPaq adapter and flashing you Z with NANDs from other models; your "antics" could very well give [a href=\"http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Super_Dave_Osborne]Super Dave Osborne[/url] a heart attack!

I am having a problem getting bluetooth ppp going in r198.
It is a socket card and dmesg returns the following:

1.0: ttyS0 at I/O 0xc48403f8 (irq = 137) is a 16C950/954

but when I try to attach the card, I get

# hciattach -p ttyS0 bcsp 921600 flow
BSCP initialization timed out

any ideas what to try next? The card worked OK in beta3.
