Update all applications from last Sharp Rom. There are 1.40 for SL-C860:
http://support.ezaurus.com/sl-c860/update/...ate/kyodaku.asp
What's the difference?
Differences for 1.40JP ROM are...

1. Mobile network service (Kyocera KWINS)
2. FOMA Software (NTT DOCOMO 3G Card drivers)
3. Mail update (problems with some Japanese ISPs)
4. Fix for problems when trying to mount SD Cards using the Z configured for storage (sometimes mount read only ??)
5. Input alphabetic characters into the manufacture number during registration (????).

I think the only useful bit may be 4.

Would it be possible to include the latest 2.6 version kernel in the new ROM?

I'm not sure if this is workable (Sharp problem?), but I'd like to be
able to enter whitespace in the ESSID name in the WLAN Networking tool.
It somewhat bugs me that I have to go edit config files for this one
simple task while otherwise the Networking GUI fullfills my needs.

Besides, the Symbol Spectrum WLAN card drivers need updating. It
seems that the included version does not like access points with 802.11b
AND g functionality. I've debugged this for two days now and it seems
to be a linux driver problem. The newest Symbol Windows drivers work
fine, so the card itself is OK.

kuijer001,

I'm sure if you could provide a working 2.6 stable build for the Zaurus we would all be happy to get it and I'm sure Masolvsky would love to include it.

At the moment it doesn't exist for the Z, there are a few closed binaries because of closed spec HW in the current Kernel and I think there are some bootloader problems with 2.6 on the Z that still need nailing.

I would check out the OpenEmbedded website if you are interested - I think that they are focussing on this - don't know what they are doing re: SD Card drivers etc. though.

A wonderful job with the current ROM.  

In general, I would favor in the next release any improvements that improve application load-time, and this is particularly important for the PIM apps like KA/Pi, KO/Pi, etc.  In terms of the filesystem, I would opt for one that has worse compression but is faster.

On a related note, I notice that the Zaurus' display system is not as fast as [much simpler] Palms'.  Ie, menus are slower, switching tabs in Qtopia you can see the screen redraw, etc.  If this can be improved upon, great!  If there's any discussion on this that anyone knows about, please provide me the link!

Best, Sriram

I didn't see this answered, so I'll ask again.  What are the odds that us poor beknighted SL-5500 users will see this version?   

It'd be nice to have some updated, working options for a change...
Sorry, but very little chances. We couldn't even find anyone willing to maintain a version for 5600 and I just physicaly cannot keep up with all Zaurus models...
Where can I get the source for Cacko?  I'd be very interested in it on the 5600.  I have no doubt building/maintaining a ROM is a lot of work but I'd like to give it a go.

Cheers.

How about including libssl.0.9.7 in the ROM this time?  Since Cacko has libcrypto for SSH but not any of the other OpenSSL libs, it does not have the complete set of libraries for other apps (Kphone comes to mind).  So, either including all of OpenSSL, or a seperate package with just the missing libs would be nice.

Thanks!

I have one, what about fixing the problems with cacko and the hardware clock? Mine doesn't want to keep time properly...
Gorgeous C860, 256 Sandisk SD, 1Gig Pretec 40x CF, PDAIR leather case & the really cool retractable iPDA USB sync/charge cable. Powered by PDAXROM BETA 1.

My wish - to have a Command & Conquer style game on my Z! (FREECNC!!!) Simcity 2000 would also be great.

flandry i don't have any problems inserting headphones at any point. It is done in hardware, but having built the remote control I know that the socket is a four pole one and the two outer pins have to be joined together (by a standard headphone plug) for this to change to the headphones.  If i'm using the remote i have to hit a button before the speaker switches off.
You're right, it's only an issue with the remote, not just headphones.  Still seems there must be an easy fix.

But i've got a better one on my wishlist: unmuting when adjusting volume from the remote.  I'll have it muted for typing in a meeting, and then plug in the headphones and go, only to realize it's muted.  Of course this one could be resolved by me being less of a flake, but  again it seems to me it should be an easy fix.

I'm definitely having problems with the clock, so if there is some way to keep that properly synced it would be great.

Hi,

I am also glad to see that the Cacko ROM isn't dead!  

Maybe it has been addressed before but I coldn't find it:

What I need is a bug fix in the IMAP mail connection if this is possible. My mail account at web.de has predefined folders with German umlaut like "Unerwünscht". This causes the IMAP to creates a folder "ünscht" and then stop with an error message.

The other solution would be to use a different mail client. But this would also mean to use a different address book and so on.

Many thanks for the nice Cacko Rom

The only problem I have is writing to my 1GIG sd (msdos format) card.  Large writes like MP3 files cause the file system to go "read only".

I am happy to see the Cacko ROM continue.

Well... this thread has been running for three weeks. Any decisions about a next release? My only concern with the modular approach is about how long it will take to update/test the modules once the new core is released. I hope that this ROM continues to progress.

Well I for one would like to see the latest version of fdisk (2.12a) and e2fsprogs (1.35) in the next version.

If you check out my 'New versions of fdisk....' thread then you will see three people with similar experiences to myself. Older versions showing incorrect geometry with fdisk and successful partitioning with the newer version of fdisk.

I can say that e2fsck 1.35 particularly is an important addition when using ext3 formatted cards - I will definitely be putting these tools on my system if they don't make it to the ROM.

A couple of things are holding me back from putting this file out for general use.

i. I NEED MORE REPORTS !, if someone feels like they would like to help out then please give the tools a test and please drop a note on the thread (the 'New versions..' thread please), it's important, we need to know that people are using these tools without problems - and if there are problems then we definitely need to know about that too.

ii. Existing tools in existing ROMs, the current IPK installs the tools to /usr/local/bin and then it is up to the user to set up the path so these files are hit first. - On Cacko 1.21b the files are in /sbin which is read only (no surprise there) - It does mean, however, that the tools can't reside in that directory and you do have to sort out the path.

Anton, I would suggest that if you aren't happy with testing feedback on these tools before you are ready to ship the next ROM version that you shift the fdisk and e2fsprogs to an IPK install so that people have the option of installing either the original or the newer set of tools without having to faff around with the path statements.
