I succeeded installing yonggun kernel and eabi system (thanks to all developer).

Now i am interested in comparing this distribution with the titchy one. I followed exactly the "easy" installation steps from the neilandtheresa-site and .... errors! sad.gif
I thought the oabi installation might be rather simple. Copied all four files on a 512 MB sd-card, vfat16, formatting ... extracting ... rebooting ... installing ... errrrrrroring ohmy.gif

Copying the contents of the business-cd fails, stuck at 60%, stuck at 70%.

Have reconfigured the original sharp nand and hdds six times. I wonŽt wake up neil&theresa, but are there any unmissunderstandable (helpfull) instructions to install titchy?

-----------------------------------------
At the end formatting it with mkfs -T vfat /dev/sdb1 and loading all files directly on the sd-card solved my problems smile.gif . For me, formatting was the trick.

FWIW, maemorandum, I got Titchy installed....but took a while, installer has some unique aspects to it.... wink.gif

Only thing is that since I'm now using eabi, I don't remember all the details of how I got it going...

However, there some useful threads in the Debian forum section on Titchy install and there's also a link somewhere to someone's flickr page that has step by step photos of display during install that was helpful too....

Having said all this I'd probably just stick with eabi....but of course it's up to you....

Thank you, archimark.
Perhaps i should wait for fixed packages instead of installing a complicated system.
Other question: Is it possible to install the "clean, fresh, configured eabi rootfs tarball" and replace the eabi rootfs-tarball with an oabi rootfs-tarball? Does this work?

cool.gif I suspect that you have a corrupt download of the debian iso. I'd be inclined to download a fresh copy and try again. smile.gif I've used the original method many times, I break things easily, and IMO it is the easies way. YMMV.

I'd recommend reformatting your SD card and then putting fresh copies of the files from the Titchy site and the new iso onto your card. smile.gif

blink.gif Just a stupid question: you did rename the iso to debian.iso, didn't you? unsure.gif

Cheers

Thank, you tux. Yes, i renamed the iso-file. Alternatively i tried the network-iso, too - same problem.
I did it from the apple-macintosh which was no problem with the previous distributions. Maybe this could be a problem here. Later i will download it on a suse-linux. The 512MB sd-card is formatted as vfat16.

I will give it a try. But first of all iŽll buy a 8GB cf-card to backup the microdrive in order to get my system back - if oabi fails.
