Linux would probably consume less resources than Windows right? So maybe since it seems Windows will not allow acceptable mp3 playback, we can use Linux for an mp3 player. Problem is do any drivers exist for that Pansonic PCMCIA sound card under Linux? I have not found any yet.
This is a Linux-supported sound card with a DSP.
I here the price is out of this world though...
The search continues. I have found many places that say specifically that Linux does not support ANY PCMCIA sound cards beacause of DMA, etc.
I have the latest version of FreeBSD running on the CF-01. It took a bit to get XFree86 4 running as the chips driver was buggy but it works now.The next step is to make the touch screen work under X. I came across some comments that some software works on both the CF-01 and the Fujitsu Stylistic 1200. I have found code for the 1200. What I am not sure of is how the CF-01 touch screen works. Near as I can tell all of them use a serial (COM) port to obtain the touch screen information. I need more information on which serial port is being used, if one is used at all. Anyone who has more info on how the penc.drv works or how the hardware works would be appreciated.
So has anyone gotten Linux up and running? In particular, has anyone gotten the pen support working or network cards? I am trying to use my cf-01 for a computer engineering course in which i will mainly only be working with programming c++ and perl. I hope someone can help... Thanks.
... or how about FreeBSD? (I'd actually prefer FreeBSD). Some details from Fred about how he got it all functioning would be great.
Is there a driver for the Panasonic PCMCIA sound card? Once that is done I reckon I can get rid of Windows from the unit, I only need it to play MP3s and talk via my SMC wireless card (I understand there is an Intersil driver, no?).
