Hi ArchiMark,
Have you been successful with installing Ubuntu Jaunty 9.04 Armel in this thread?
I tried it with varying results. I have tried 2 different installs.
I already have the multiboot kernel installed and working.

[ Snip.........]

Hi Jon,

No, haven't used my Z for about 6 months or so.....been super busy at work.....long story...........

If and when I ever get some free time, I might give it a go.......

Yay! I got it working. I'm now able to calibrate the touchscreen and stylus input works on my SL-C3100!  
I changed some settings as shown below.
I'm not sure if in all three places these settings were all matched to '1' or one of them was originally set at '2' But I managed to set them all to '1' and that is what got my touchscreen working, and a functional desktop.

at my c1000 its not nessesary to kill tskeys
its sufficient to edit /etc/zaurusd/mach-config-vars and put TSKEYS_DEVICE=/dev/input/event2 instead default value



https://www.oesf.org/forum/index.php?showto...st&p=181584
BerndS: i don't have acces to a 760,
but from command line, does the ts_calibrate program work?
if not:
1) do a grep -i handlers /proc/bus/input/devices
and check the second line starting with a "H: Handlers="
2) then grep TS ~/.profile
this line should have the same event* as the previous command
if it's not the same, nano ~/.profile and change the TSLIB_TSDEVICE line and specify the proper device
3) then logout, login, and run ts_calibrate again
4) if it doesn't work, try editing /etc/ts.conf and uncomment (remove the #) at the line module_raw corgi and run ts_calibrate again

Great news, Jon!

And thanks for sharing all the details....will come in handy if I get time to try this (see my reply post above just above this one...).

Will be very interested to know what you can do this version....ie, can you use a decent web browser and other apps, etc.....

Thanks,

Mark

Hi again ArchiMark, and anyone else that reads this.
I finally got WiFi and other tweaks working, but....
The feeds are gone now. I really need to acquire wifi-radar or wicd.
I have old copies of these, but the python dependencies are making these old packages fail to install.
There are no packages to be downloaded from the feeds that I can tell. I even looked for network-manager, and it is not available. I always forget commandline stuff. I guess I need to print a small howto to get connected whenever I restart my Zubuntu Z.

new repository is: http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/jaunty/
I just looked at this url using firefox.
http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dist...n/binary-armel/
There is only a "Packages" file. It is just a text description of all the packages, but I don't see any packages there.
A week ago, I think I tried this repository in zubuntu 9.04 and it didn't work.
I'll have to get the multiboot kernel re-installed and try again. I reflashed my Z for reasons stated below.

I tried 3 different methods to get Cacko to run from NAND using the multiboot kernel and only one method worked for me.

1. At first, I used this method here: https://www.oesf.org/forum/index.php?showtopic=26759 post #2
The command in that post only worked once for me and I had the wrong kernel-cmdline.
When I tried to replace it, I couldn't access the /boot/ directory. I kept getting message that it was readonly
Next, I had to use a command in meanie's big pdf to mount the root partition as rw.
I still couldn't get Cacko to boot using the multiboot kernel, except eith the next method. method 2.

2. This method is to have the Cacko kernel, kernel-cmdline, and image.nfo on an SD card and that will boot Cacko.
(when I had the multiboot kernel installed). Using this method, you need to swap SD cards to boot Cacko or zubuntu.

3. It's been a week and I don't recall the 3rd method I tried to get Cacko to boot from NAND and zubuntu on the SD card

A week ago, I was trying to get Cacko to boot and used a "cackofix" to make Cacko run independently of my microdrive
That messed up my original Cacko install.
I restored my Z with Trisoft NAND and then re-installed Cacko. I haven't installed any of the newer kernels for Cacko yet.
I need to get back to this before I forget what all I did.
Here's 2 other threads showing methods to get Cacko to boot from NAND and have zubuntu on SD/CF
