Question about Dell Axim X5 Pocket PC

2 Answers

Using Axim with Linux?

Can the Axim sync with a Linux desktop? I am also curious if there is any development of running Linux on the Axim, Ipaq users do? Can anyone point me to someplace that has this information that relates to the Axim?

I know that the Xscale processor has a JTAG interface that will allow you to monitor / program etc the processor from your main system. This JTAG interface is supported by some open source linux/windows development tools .the hardware can be found at Macraigor Systems LLC.

I think the official answer from Dell is that Linux is not supported (as they don't include a conduit for it)....though I have a feeling it can be done.... As for running Linux on the Axim, there hasn't been anything developed yet. Chances are most of the stuff for running Linux on the iPAQ would work for the Axim, though there would have to be some tweaking to account for the hardware variance.

You can only sync your inbox through Activesync with Outlook not Outlook express. There is a full version of Outlook on the CD that came with the Axim. You should be able to move your data from OE into Outlook.

Infrared Beaming Problem


My Axim is behaving the same way. I find that if I try to transfer something from my Palm IIIc to my Axim via infrared, it rarely sends the data immediately, and it often times out. I have found that I can often get it to work if I request the transfer on the Palm and then "stimulate" the Axim via tapping a menu selection or by momentarily blocking the view between the devices.

If it works with the iPAQ it should work on the Axim. For the most part, anything for Pocket PC 2002 and/or ARM based processors should work just fine on the Axim. I haven't tried it on the Axim either, but there is not reason it shouldn't work.

Two Axims on the same desktop computer


You can both do it, just not simultaneously - meaning don't sync at the same time. You can set up your own partnership with your own preferences. Using Outlook profiles or Windows XP/2000 user settings, you can even have your own Outlook database to sync against so you don't comingle data. Post back with your OS if you need help getting this set up.

USB Sync Cable


I dont' think so. No other PDA does - it would be quite a drain on the USB port. It isn't like powering the tiny LED in an optical mouse.

IPAQ 4150 - Sync Problems


It might be a hardware problem - if you get it both with the cradle and a sync cable, then it might be the connector at bottom of Ipaq. But I don't know for sure. If it's intermittent like this then it doesn't seem like a software problem.
