Here's a manual way to install an ipk:

CODE
(on an ext2/ext3/jffs2 fs)
tar -xf some_ipk_arm.ipk
tar -xf data.tar.gz
cp -r (new directories that are made) /


The first line extracts the stuff from the ipk, the second extracts the data, and the third copies the data into your filesystem.


I got the following error when tryint to open the ipk file (from the SD card):

Cannot change ownership to to uid 501, gid 501: Operation not permitted.

HELP PLEASE!!

What other ROM can I load on my 750 that has:

Word
Sheet
a web browser
todo list
calander function
easy to load and flash to my Z-750
terminal program (shell)

I am getting desperate here as I need to get my Z in shape for some upcoming work travel that I have very soon.

I like pdaXrom -- I just need to get a calender and todo list programs oin here and I am having a hell of a time learning how to do it properly. Everything that I have tried so far has failed. I need HELP FAST!!

Sounds like you need Cacko. It has all that built into the full version.
Hancom Word (or TextMaker if you want to spend the dough. See below.)
Hancom Sheet
Netfront or Opera (both are on the Full version)
Sharp ToDo
Sharp Calendar (See Below)
Flash to SharpROM using a NAND backup from Trisoft or Conics then flash upgrade Cacko Full using the Cacko Installer.
Konsole

The Sharp Calendar will wake your Z and ring an alarm properly and consistently under Cacko. Don't monkey around with KO/PI, KA/PI or PMP/PI unless you have the free time.
If you don't mind spending money, buy a copy of TextMaker from SoftMaker to replace the Hancom Word that Cacko comes with to get a real word processor.

I think that will work.

Note that Cacko is MUCH different from pdaXrom.

EDIT:

http://tyrannozaurus.com/old2/?q=cacko

That page has the download and flashing instructions.

Can you give me a good cacko feed? I want to install gcc (or g++) so I can do some c++ work.

here's 3 Cacko feeeds. I didn't see "gcc" in any of them.
http://www.zaurususergroup.org/feed/
http://web.mol.ru/~zaurus/feed/
http://bryandeluca.com/cacko/feed/ [not browsable - need to know pkg name, or use packagemanager]

Search google for "zgcc2-95-2" I have a copy, but it is 24mb (opps 20mb). I doubt you'll find it in a feed.

Those were crosscompilers. Oops! Let's try that again.

2 more places to get packages for Cacko. Use a browser to browse packages with descriptions:
http://www.handheld-linux.com/swi/index.php
http://www.elsix.org/ There is a link at the top of this forum for this - "ELSI"

Thanks for all your help guys!! I am running Cacko on my Z and I am loving it!!
The PIM software is treating me great ans I can still get the command line stuff that linux is known for.
This is really helping me with learning linus too!!

I do have one more question: can some one help me with how to sync my Z with MS Outlook and with my linus box at home? I have a laptop that is running Suse 10.1.

That's a difficult thing to do, IIRC. My impression is that it only works some of the time and is a pain to set up. I believe the conclusion reached was, at least for contacts, to just export and import them between machines.

I haven't followed this all that closely, so I hope I'm wrong.

Still can't get my Z to sync with outlook. Hmm .... software just dies on my Windos desktop when I try to sync.

By the way -- does anyone know what the default root password is for the Cacko Linux on a zaurus?
