Most important missing/to be fixed in pdaXrom?
« on: October 26, 2004, 05:06:36 pm »
We are almost done with the next and maybe final RC - so we decided to do a "poll" on what you guys would love to see fixed and/or implemented in the upcomming final pdaXrom 1.1.0.

So post your comments and wishes in this thread - and if your wish is already posted by someone else please don't repost.

We can't guarentee we can fix it or add the feature you wish for but we sure will try - except for those asking for Half Life 2 etc. ;-)

Then when we have looked through all the request/ideas we will probally setup a real poll.

I continue to have problems with libraries not linking correctly when installed to SD.  I started a thread a while back for it, I could find it if you want.

WiFi support for a Corega WLCFL-11 card would be great.  The configuration file from the company says it would work with prism2_cs, if that helps at all.

Three things i'd like.

1.  Keep on doing what you're doing.  The rom is fantastic and I cant even imagine using any pda that cant run it now.

2.  On that same note, I gotta nudge for support for the 6000 series

3.  Dual booting to a sharp or cacko rom would be killer

Again, thanks for this amazing rom

RC5 is great the way it is, except for one gripe that I have:

Either via a config option somewhere, or a replacement package, remove the right click after 500ms 'feature' from tslib.  It's VERY annoying when dragging windows around, etc.  I would much prefer to run an app such as xmonobut or similar to allow middle/right-click via a keyboard press + tap with stylus.

Other than that, keep up the great work!

I'm using RC5 right now and love it, echo murple.  There's there's really only three things I can think of that could make it better.

1. A setting that'll automatically underclock when you've had cpu cycles to spare for a while, say after a minute of playing mp3s.  Or maybe just put a button to do that on the light and power screen.

2. ReiserFS and NTFS support.

3. The ability to transform into a giant robot.

- a fix for ratoc usb host support (last pdaxrom's release working with it was 1.0.5 or rc2, don't remember exactly, rc3 wasn't creating device files automatically by default, rc5 isn't ever claiming about plugged devices in dmesg)
- xserver support for configuring external pointer devices, not only touchscreen one
- support for bluetooth hid
- quake 2 in the feed
- xvkbd as a replace for xkbd
Motorola A780

  • XMMS Shoutcast / Icecast support
  • More optimised Mplayer compile including all windows media formats enabled at compile (they're present but not enabled)
  • Remove the TSlib 500Ms click/hold feature as listed above, I hate it. It would be better to use say the home+1-3 keys to choose which mouse click is simulated when the screen is tapped.
  • Working CPU/Mem applet that automatically deducts the KAPM-IDLED process tally
  • An automatic NTP update client that always runs and sync's the clock whenever an active Internet connection is established
  • More games

This has been fixed and will be included in the next release.  See this thread if you want to install it early.

It seems I'm the only one to be content with this feature. It's the only way to do right mouse clicks in portrait mode.

Apropos portrait mode: Is there any chance that the font resolution problem will be fixed in the final release?
