I recently got Opie 1.2 with OZ 3.5.2 (48M for RAM, 16M for storage) on my Zaurus, and it's very good. However, when I look at the storage info in the sysinfo program, I see many entries:
Internal Storage /dev/root: 14M
Internal Memory: 15M
Internal Memory: 23M
SD Card
CF Card
What mystifies me are the many internal memory entries. The root directory (first entry) has only 904KB free, which makes installing libraries and programs near-impossible. Where's that 23M of internal memory coming from? Is there any way I can repartition the memory to make the root bigger?

If you are using a 5500 then your root filesystem is actually the internal flash of the Zaurus, It is a fixed size.

You can however un-install programs from root and re-install them on your SD or CF cards freeing up space.

Also be aware that linking programs with ipkg-link eats up space on root.

It's been a while since I installed a non 64-0 image but you should have a destination called ram which would be your 16mb of ramdisk.

Ok, and I link libs installed on the ramdisk to the root FS with ipkg-link?
