To unblank you simply tap the screen with your stylus.
D'oh!  About the one thing I didn't try.  Thanks.
don't feel bad... I asked the same question.
I pressed every button I could think of -- including the power button....
which finally worked.

hi, I have the same evil WiFi problems, I tried changing the wireless.opts file, it didn't fix my problem but it did change the way the light on my WiFi card flashes. I still cant ping any comps on my network though I can ping myself

I have the LA4100 Spectrum24 CF WLAN Card, if you know of a way to fix this quickly and easily is it not too late to include it in the update so I can do a full reflash?

Thanks

New updates available in IPK feed - do the ipkg update, ipkg upgrade as described in last update.

New fixes:
- symlink dies on reboot should no longer be a problem.
- more network card support as posted by g33k

Anyone have problems with sound?  I suspend my Z 860, come back a few hours later, fire up XMS, and it says there is a problem regarding my soundcard.  I exit and restart X but the same thing happens.  If I reboot the entire Z, it works again.

Clock and time -
do time work in all  cases, or does the clock "forgets itself" after suspend?

i thought i have read above some ambiguous bug report about clock dont get sync.

?

My XMMS complains about esound driver when i first load it after rebooting. Pressing playing again after hitting ok (to get rid of dialog box) gets it going grand from then on. ..
 
One problem with XMMS that i would like to get around is to have the main volume control and the xmms volume control, working on the same audio channel. The xmms one works within the limits set by the volume control applet... Changing output device  from esound to the oss doesn't help.

Last night i had the system crash a few times when i hit the power button to suspend... I tried shift-home today, and the power button works as it has always (haven't checked after reboot yet).

Lastly, there seems to be some problem where i loose all my applets on the taskbar on the right hand side of the screen... Haven't found out what causes it but it has happened a few times....

Loving Rox!  It's great to have a file manager (apart from mc) at last. Anyone know of one around (or a way of configuring ROX) to give a tree view on the left hand side? If you haven't got a file manager get rox installed! Take a little time to setup mime-info, it's so great being able to click on a file and have dillo pop open, or xmms...

Lastly anyone know if theres a way to zoom text in Dillo?

xmms is running with esd sound because of problems with it working together with volume applet. But strangely sometimes xmms complains about it not running okay.

The problem with loosing the applet is when there is too little space for the applets in the bottom bar - then matchbox strangely removes the applets. This often happens when zooming in (running 320x24).. We are lookng into it.

thanks to the pdaXrom team for the new release. It made my christmas more than usual exciting.

A few random issues after a couple of days:

Running X as nonroot is still not fully functional: no sound availible - insuff. permissions for /dev/dsp apparently. Dillo is seq-faulting. Haven't explored further.

Aterm-applet sometimes produces a small empty window at the border of the display.

Right clicking with Fn not working on windows or panel but ok in mc


However this is banalities compared to the overall performance and functionality - keep up the good work!

When will all the updates be available in the main rom download for re-flashing?

I'm stuck without my WiFi card working, without WiFi I have no way of getting my Bluetooth card from working  

On another note, is there any software out there that will let me scan for Bluetooth devices other than a DUN search for phones. It would be nice if I could connect to say another pda with Bluetooth, laptop, Bluetooth headset for wireless headphones.

My laptop can do it and it would be amazing if my pda could too

Thanks

Sorry fox, 99% of Bluetooth CF cards don't support any type of audio profile. This appears to be a hardware limitation of the cards.

Laze,

there is a minor problem with the feed http://mirror1.pdaxrom.org/current/

If I do the ipkg update, then  ipkg upgrade tries to upgrade packagemanager!

Package: packagemanager
Priority: optional
Section: X11
Maintainer: Alexander Chukov <sash@pdaXrom.org>
Architecture: armv5tel
Version: 1.0.4-3
Depends: qt-mt, startup-notification
Description: ipkg QT X11 frontend

The file doesn't exist! There is instead http://mirror1.pdaxrom.org/current/package....4_armv5tel.ipk

Please fix.

BTW Why is kopi Version: 178-1 in the feed ? Ain't the old version?
By mistake I installed it and messed up kdepim 1.9.5 ...

Hi,

I have a persistent problem with Rc8.
Whenever I change the date/time on my Z and do I suspend and subsequent wakeup from the GUI my keyboard and stylus input freezes.
After wakeup I see the clock being reset to the last systemtime *before* the date/time change.
System still runs afaict because if I wait long enough the clock gets updated.

I do not have NTPD running.
It happens if I change date/time with the 'date' command or the 'ntpdate' command.
It does not matter if I have my Wifi card inserted or not.
I have *all* updates installed which are available in the current feed.

Any ideas?

When X is running you can currently only change the date/time using the Date & Time application because it has to restart openbox afterwards (due to the way timing is handled in the matchbox applications and applets).  Setting the time when X isn't running (i.e. from the console before you run startx) is fine.  ntpd is also not affected because it doesn't "set" the clock it adjusts its speed to gently shift to the correct time (except in the ntpd script that runs at bootup, it "sets" the clock).  If you need to periodically use date or ntpdate to set your clock then have a look in /usr/bin/datentime.py (lines 53-57) to see what it does after setting the clock.
