I'm new to OZ and OPIE, so maybe I'm missing something...

I followed the instructions for flashing OZ with OPIE and everything seems to work fine with that. My only problem comes when I try to install the cardfs-$whatever.bin file. I copy the file to both a CF card and an SD card, and OZ won't recognize either file at boot.

I tried this with both OZ 3.5.3 + OPIE 1.2.0 and OZ 3.5.4.1 + OPIE 1.2.1 with Hentges's appropriate cardfs files.

With OZ 3.5.4.1, I get a blue screen asking me if I want to search for cardfs and I type "ok". In OZ 3.5.3, I don't get this screen and it also doesn't detect the cardfs files on either the SD card or the CF card.

Any ideas on what I'm doing wrong? An alternate method maybe of installing the software from the cardfs file?

I know that my Zaurus at least recognizes my CF card or otherwise I wouldn't have been able to flash it in the first place.

Thanks in advance!

The cfs has to be on the CF card with the the zImage and the initrd.bin. The SD card has to be formatted ext2 and, from my experience, empty. During the installation, the Hentges ROM will recognize the card after it asks you if you want to find it. It will ask you the destination of the cfs, which would be your SD card. I have installed the Hentges cfs about six times without a hitch using 3.5.4.1. My collie did not respond to 3.5.3 very well.

I followed your instructions (which were very similar to the ones on the Hentges website) and still the same results...

Chris has been helping me out quite a bit setting mine up and the way he described worked for me. I'll give you a few steps I had to do to get mine working right except I never had any problems w/ it finding the cardfs file.

1) Loaded the zImage, initrd.bin, cardfs-opie-collie.bin, and hentges-opie-imagerootfs.tar.gz to my 64meg CF card.
2) Flashed using FAQ (SD Card was NOT inserted yet)
3) altboot came up, picked opt1 installed OS (I haven't messed with a loopfile yet)
4) i did not chose to look for cardfs image yet
5) got the wierd "card found" screen you can't get around, pulled CF card, rebooted and it went into OS fine. Reinserted card, got the msg but you can hit ok now.
6) SD card setup
a) I had previously zeroed out my card as recommended by chris using the alt-boot faq, I couldn't format it though cause my zaurus had the root copied to SD, that is why I had to start over
cool.gif When i put the ard into the zaurus it would not mount, so I quickformatted to FAT using my windows machine
cool.gif inserted back into zaurus and formatted my SD card ext2 according to the alt-boot faq
7) copied the cardfs file over to the SD mount, rebooted
8) let bootup search for Cardfs and it found it ok, installed to SD card ext2 filesys

so far everything is working perfect for me, just need to get the opie-packagemanager working because apkg seems to be trying to download files from a non-existant directory inthe feed (there's no colli directory in 3.5.4.1 feed that hentges is based on)

I think the problem may actually be with my SD card being 4GB. I've read elsewhere that it may not be supported. I will try with a smaller card when I get the chance, and see if the cardfs is recognized.

Thanks, all smile.gif
