Hi smile.gif

Maybe you think this is a bug, or can give me a hint on how to solve it:

1) Trying to install netfront from network: I get the "sorry ipkg had a problem" either into SD or internal RAM installation

2) I got some ipks in a CF, I plug it in, and I choose "Install Applications" in the Package Installer ... it takes a moment to scan for ipk to install ... and when it brings the list, it lists each ipkg repeated like 9 times.

The IPKG install application will list every IPKG file as well as every copy, so it will show it 9 times if you have 9 copies in flash, SD & CF storage.

Select a specific IPKG file from the file browser to make sure you install a specific file.

You may also want to try installing an IPKG file from the command line as it may provide more information about the problem, it's relativly easy to do.

Run Console
Enter LS <Return>

Identify location on flash drive from the files/folders shown

Use File browser to copy IPKG file to this location

Return to Console & repeat LS command to confirm file is in place.

Type SU <Return> to get into higher level

Enter ipkg install filename.ipk <Return>

Say NO if it asks if you want it to try & install applications that has previously failed.

Should say if the application has been installed or why it failed.

Exit console & reboot, to refresh icons.

Mike,

Thanks ...

I just finished installing Netfront ....

Now I wonder if anyone knows:

Netfront 3.x LITE (the one in the cacko feed) is newer than Netfront 1.x (FULL I assume) available in Sharp site for download (for C3000) ? or is it just that lite version has different number ?

Lite suffix means it's originaly for the Lite ROM version, but can be installed on the full ROM too. It's exactly the same version as you can get from Sharp site, except it will run on any Zaurus smile.gif
