LOL, well its the darkest theme I can seem to get on it.  The ubuntu theme is too bright too me.  Tried the icewm themes, but it bombs them back too the default icewm theme ... so its what it has to be for the moment

I have finally got this installed and I am having a hell of a time getting my ambicom wifi card to work.  Can anyone help me out.  Its listed as eth1.  I have done a iwconfig eth 1 essid myid and done the dhclient eth1 but it wont give me a address.  The wifi router is wide open.

Works really nice and much faster than my old pdaxrom! Got wifi working with my d-link-card and installed bluetooth (still testing). Only one small issue I noticed: date&time seems to be broken. Has to be done by commandline.
My only problem: (I'm not quite familiar with icewm, I used rox-session with pdaxrom): How can I bring icons on the desktop? Any hint?

Well, one way would be to use the zaurus backup to make a complete image of your internal disk and NAND. I plan to do this once I get everything how I want it.  Then, if anything catastrophic happens just restore those two images and it should work again.

Hi,

I've got a battery-drain issue. I realize that my c3200 with Andromeda get switched on while suspended and it is in the leather case with lid closed.
First I suspedted that the power button is beeing pressed accidentally, however it was not the case before [Andromeda].

I try to investigate this state. E.g. to log and forbid unattended wake-up while lid is beeing closed.
Tell me, where is a wake-up script and how it should detect the lid switch?
As far as I know, Andromeda uses apm method, but could not get further with this.

What your opinion?

I have that problem as well. Mine will also turns on randomly on debian eabi. But it's not much of a problem because I only go into eabi to crack wep and then boot back into sharp rom to actually use the zaurus.

We have the same issue !
Did somebody found a solution, because the Debian distribution isn't usable with this issue (i.e. we need to reset the Zaurus after each the battery drain, and re-input the date/time) ?

On my SL-C3000, the issue of the battery drain seems to be related to the following :
  • on dmesg
    Quote
    sharpsl-pm sharpsl-pm: Error: AC check failed.
    sharpsl-pm sharpsl-pm: Charging Error!
    EDIT:
  • Power status
    The power status applet is changing from "Computer is running on battery power" to "Computer is running on AC power" when no power supply is plugged. The power status applet seems to indicate the On-line/Off-line of /proc/apm
    • Without power plugged
        Sometimes Online :
      [blockquote]
    • apm : "On-line, battery status high: 100%" and the charging led is off
    • cat /proc/apm : "1.13 1.2 0x02 0x01 0x00 0x01 100% -1 ?"[/blockquote]
      Sometimes Off-line :
      [blockquote]
    • apm : "Off-line, battery status high: 100%" and the charging led is off
    • cat /proc/apm : "1.13 1.2 0x02 0x00 0x00 0x01 100% -1 ?"[/blockquote]
  • With power plugged
      Sometimes battery status high
    [blockquote]
  • apm : "On-line, battery status high: 100%" and the charging led is off
  • cat /proc/apm : "1.13 1.2 0x02 0x01 0x00 0x01 100% -1 ?"[/blockquote]
    and after many plug/unplug/plug of the power, the battery status is charging
    [blockquote]
  • apm : "On-line, battery charging: 100%" and the charging yellow/orange led stay on
  • cat /proc/apm : "1.13 1.2 0x02 0x01 0x03 0x08 100% -1 ?"[/blockquote]
[/li][/list][/li][/list]I didn't find what is triggering this malfunctioning.

EDIT:
Did somebody is encountering the same symptoms ?

I have downloaded andromeda.
The kernel is for hda1 and sd.

I have something already installed in these two partition.
I want to install andromeda to sd partition 2.

Is there a kernel for sd p2. Or can this kernel accept a cmdline to specify root=/dev/mmcblk0p2
BTW:I am using angstrom kexecboot kernel.

Try http://yonggun.tistory.com/68 with the Kernel image zImage.bin.mmcblk0p2.

I used the 2.6.24.3 kernel because I had issues with 2.6.24.4.

I haven't messed with my Zaurus for a loooong time now. It is sitting in a shelf with a "would like it to work dual boot w/ Ubuntu + Cacko" but it doesn't. I am in the middle of an examination period now and I really want to put Andromeda back to my trusted little machine and hope that I can get my Prism Planex GW-CF11x card to work flawlessly. So because free time is scarce at the moment and I would like to take my SL-C3200 with me during the summer vacation I would like to know if there are any updates in yongun's kernel (which is the latest) or an updated EABI image (since we had the release of Debian 5.0 in the meantime) or anything else (post install script fixing minor stuff) I might consider to have it up and running in a little time. I just want networking to work (probably WPA too) so I can have unlimited space to upload photos from my camera.

A second question would be if there is a problem with sdhc cards? I was using Andromeda w/o problems with a 4gb card but due to heavy usage it got some bad blocks and discarded it for a new 8gb kingston one but it doesn't seem to work. And if anyone had/has a problem with that kind of wireless card could point me to one that does indeed work "out of the box"?

Thanks again in advance and sorry for the length of this post.

PS: If anyone from Greece or Ibiza is up to the challenge to help me fix the machine please say so!
