I just tried to flash OpenZaurus 3.5.1 to my SL-C760. I dowloaded the following files:

opie-image.rootfs.img
updater.sh
zImage.bin.forHusky

from http://www.openzaurus.org/official/unstable/3.5.1/c7x0,c8x0/ and also checked for their MD5 sums to be OK. I copied them to my CF card, with renaming them in the following manner:

opie-image.rootfs.img -> initrd.bin
updater.sh -> updater.sh
zImage.bin.forHusky -> zImage

and then go for the reflash procedure. All seems to go well, and the Zaurus reboots. but, when booting, there are a lot of error messages, like:

Inode #XXX was a directory with children - removing those too..

and

Cannot remove child "pan.png" ino #XXX because it doesn't exist


and after a while, I get the following message:

Kernel panic: No init found. Try passing init= option to kernel

and the whole thing hangs.

now, what am I doing wrong? I tried to use the bootstrap-image.rootfs.img file instead of the opie-image.rootfs.img. Also tried to rename zImage to zImage.bin, but to no avail...

Should be:

zImage.bin.forHusky -> zImage.bin

What did you have on it beforehand?

as you can see in the last line of my original post, I did try zImage.bin as well, with the same result..

I had Cacko ROM 1.21 on it before (and also now, afterwards, as I could not make OpenZaurus work)

OpenZaurus only works with the default partitioning. If you used Cacko to repartition your flash, OZ won't work.

No idea. Never changed mine. An educated guess would be 32/32 on the C750 and 64/64 on the C760 and C860.

Am getting a similar situation on a C760 - only mine is an output of the busybox usage screen (which doesn't list 'init' as one of the commands busybox implements..?) and then a kernel panic: attempting to kill init.

To make sure there weren't any weird partitioning problems I did a full NAND flash restore to its factory (fully Japanese - much fun) configuration.

The OZ installation still won't get out of the gate. Went through it twice to make sure that I hadn't messed anything up.

I installed the basic bootstrap - just to see if any of them would boot on the 760 - and it booted and runs happily. Seems the 760 opie image is hosed?

I had problems as well when I tried 3.5.1 a while ago.

I've just done it again, but first I flashed the original Japanese ROM. This seemed to reset partitions and anything else and OZ flashed perfectly without any problems.
