Wireless X-terminal mini howto:
I used the IA-1 with DWL-122 as a pure wireless X-terminal. The reasons are:
1) I didn't really need a standalone terminal
2) I wanted to run much more applications (Opera5 and a few other apps in Midori are pretty limited)
3) I wanted to access my usual desktop seamlessly from any terminal boxes
4) I needed Japanese fonts which did not fit in 16M flash rom
One way to resolve the problem above is vncviewer. However I was a little curious how far IA-1 can go. It was quite easy to make IA-1 to be a dumb X-terminal. If you have similar problems (or if you are just curious), please try:
1) setup xdm, gdm or wdm running on your home Linux server to accept XDMCP
2) After Midori is starting up, goto pure console mode by Ctrl+Alt+BS, then run X with -query option
(192.168.0.123 is my home Linux server IP. Please change it to yours)
X -query 192.168.0.123
That's it. Now you should be able to see the graphical login window of your home server machine! You can also configure X font server so IA-1 can use various fonts. The only but the biggest drawback is security. X passes key strokes without encryption.
btw, I decided to sell all of my IA-1s at eBay as the market price is recovering ($30 -> $70 avg). The price range for the last 30 days is $50-$89 at eBay. It seems IA-1 hacking is getting back its populatiry. I enjoyed the hacking very much, and I met nice people here helping each other. Though I will move on to new toys, I hope to keep in touch with you.
