Workpad Z50

The postman just delivered my Workpad Z50!!  :)

I've ordered a 1GB CF card which should be here the next couple of days.
Now need to find some ram for it.
Has anyone here got a spare sodimm for a workpad they'd like to sell??

Regards

Sevan / Venture37

Just thought I'd join you in the celebration, I just have to send the 
money for mine first (on monday) but I too shall soon own a Z50, I 
thought maybe we could trade notes on first use of it.

I am thinking of getting a 1GB cf card as well, though I am tempted by 
the 2gb. Anyone on here ever used a 2GB cf card w/ a Z50?

I think I mentioned this before. I run my z50 from a 2GB CF card.
I can't remeber the brand, but it works fine.

Hello all,
Has anyone gotten a JRE running smoothly on NetBSD/hpcmips?  (Or close enough to smooth)
Peace,

Fujitsu Pencentra 130 vs 200

Hi,

netbsd/hpcmips 3.0.1 boots fine on a Fujitsu Pencentra 130, although PS/2 
keyboard isn't recognized.  Henceforth, I will try again with serial console.

I'm also trying to boot netbsd/hpcmips 3.0.1 on a Fujitsu Pencentra 200.  Is 
this model supported or not ?  (http://www.netbsd.org/Ports/hpcmips/ doesn't 
mention it although the TX3922 CPU is supported)

In brief, on Pencentra 200, this is what happens:

pbsdboot.exe (w/ menu pencentra 130 framebuffer) -- Error: Mapping interrupt 
vector failed. -- frozen

hpcboot.exe (w/ menu pencentra 200 framebuffer) -- Error: No symbol and/or 
string table in binary. (not fatal) -- OK -- Push yes to boot / OK -- frozen

Any hints ?

I note there's a kernel *configuration* for TX3922 CPU available in the 
source.
http://cvsweb.netbsd.org/bsdweb.cgi/src/sys/arch/hpcmips/conf/TX3922?rev=1.76&content-type=text/x-cvsweb-markup

Is the relative installer missing ?
There's only netbsd.gz and netbsd-TX3912.gz
ftp://ftp.fr.netbsd.org/pub/NetBSD/NetBSD-3.0.1/hpcmips/installation

Thanks

I got my z50 in the mail! z50 questions...

Hi all,
  I got my z50 in the mail! cool. So, I have a few questions for all of 
you who are using hpcmips w/ a workpad z50 out there.

1. Where can I buy a brand new battery? How much do they cost? How long 
will it last when it's a brand new battery (under netbsd obviously) ?

2. What wireless cards would z50 owners recommend?

3. Does anyone happen to know if the old zip drive pcmcia scsi adapter 
is really a re-badged adaptec 1460? (I got a free iomega pcmcia card 
that is apparently a pcmcia -> scsi adapter, and it says 1460a on the 
back in small letters...)

Thanks for any and all z50 info,

Nick

Z50 Wireless Cards

>2. What wireless cards would z50 owners recommend?

D-Link DWL-650 rev A through J
Linksys WPC11 versions 1 and 3

Be careful - D-Link and Linksys have made several versions of their wireless cards
that have the same model number but are completely different inside.

4gb hitachi microdrive compatible with ibm microdrive? will it work in the z50?

Hi all,
  I went to compusa to get a cf card for my new z50, and I noticed that 
they carry a 4gb hitachi microdrive. First of all, is it compatible with 
the ibm microdrives? It looks to be the same, cf II or whatever. Do 
these cards take any more battery than a regular cf card?

thanks

Hitachi bought IBM's disk drive operation, inluding the microdrives. 

However, those bigger ones (over 1 GB) could be problematic - I have 
one, and it is very weird in how it is recognized (or not) by various 
computers I have, including a Mobile Pro 790 that does not see it at all 
with its WinCe software in the CF slot.  A MoPro 800, that I got running 
for a little while with NetBSD 3.0 could "see" it when attached via USB 
flash card reader, but got errors.

HTH,
Rory
