Sorry but I'am stuck. Everytime I try ipkg-link mount /media/card the z pops up with a "package not found" message for every app I have stored on card fs.

Even when i try and relink a single app say something "like ipkg-link add opera" get an error message "package opera not found.

I have the latest hentges oz build on my z which is a sl5500 (collie)

This is causing me problems getting opera to work again after a soft reset.
I've checked the forum but nothing sticks out on on this .
Any suggestions?

Two possibilities I can think off:

1. The dest entry for /media/card is not present in /etc/ipkg.conf

2. The package db files which live under <mount point>/usr/lib/ipkg/ have vanished or become corrupted.

See if either of those are true.

I seem to remember editing ipkg.conf for some reason not so long ago and I may have changed this by mistake.
Anyway for the sd entry I had:

dest sd /media/card/packages

so I changed it to:

dest sd /media/card

now ipkg-link mount /media/card works fine

thanks lardman!
