Linux on an SH3 powered device
I was recently given a "PocketPC" (HP Jornada 520 - 133MHz SH3 16RAM/16ROM) and was wondering if we had anyone here with Linux exp on these devices. I have found the linuxsh project on SF but their site is now down and no files have been updated in ages.

Using IcebootCE and working on pre-built images I have been able to get the device to start to boot but then everything goes black (lcd problem I'm sure) and I have to reset the device, putting me back in the stupid "Welcome to PocketPC" screen.

Any help would be great, I can't stand using any version of Windows and it's going to be a little bit until I can get another PalmOS powered device.

CDs not automounting as user
I’ve installed udev, hal, and gnome-volume-manager in hopes of getting my CDs to mount automatically when inserted. It works perfectly—that is, when I’m logged in as root. When I’m logged in as user, however, I still have to mount manually. Anyone have any ideas? I figure it’s a permissions problem, but I’m not sure which permissions to modify. I’ve rewritten udev rules, chmod’ed the mount points, but no dice. Google has not been especially helpful either.

Running Debian sid, by the way.

(Of course, if you need any more specific info, feel free to ask and I’ll see what I can do.)

UPDATE: Turns out that I didn't have the necessary permissions to execute /usr/bin/pmount. Fixed! (Now, to get Nautilus to display discs inserted in my drive as such, not as hard drives! If it ain't one thing, it's another...)

This isn't strictly linux related, rather it's OS related and linux users are usually interested in OSes.

Short xpost for those of you inclined. I'm creating an operating system and looking for comments on it. At this point, I already have portions written.

This is the post in my journal defining what I consider to be the Ultimate operating system.

Has anyone gotten both heads of a dual-head Radeon working with X11? Googling turns up lots of failure, and hints that somebody knows somebody who has made it work, but no real success.

My attempts to work out the correct XF86Config syntax for this have been frustrating to say the least, and I'm never sure if I did it wrong or it just doesn't work. I'm running Ubuntu Hoary, so I have X.org X11R6.8; I have a Radeon 7000 installed in a PowerMac (though the last shouldn't matter).

Config file snippets of even partial success with a different card, and, well, any help at all is welcome and appreciated.

Cedega HL2
Had Half-life2 Running with Cedega (WineX) nicely... until the Steam update.
Now I'm getting some bunk error.

"Program: D:\point2play\Steam\c_drive\Prog Files\blahblah

pClientAccountinfo->m_pAccountEntry->m_pAccount->1stLoggedin()"

Anyone else getting this or know how to fix it?

wine on ppc
the last post just made me think of this, but is it possible to run wine on a ppc architecture, or does it require specifically x86 hardware/drivers/etc? maybe i can start playing doom3 and half life2 on my powerbook ;)

Aw hell....
I have completely blanked on my password (changed it since the boyfriend tends to snoop on my side) and can't seem to make it change in root (under users/groups). Running Fedora Core 3.... can anyone please help a girl who's toasted from a long, long work shift from hell? :)
