OK, so I got all the packages, formatted the SD card, did all the instructions at http://wiki.debian.net/index.cgi?PocketWorkstation-XQT and everything appears to be loaded, but I click on the pocket workstation icon and nothing happens. I have enabled it to run with root priv, etc, but I know I must be missing something. All help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

When I repackaged the xqt-startup-scripts without the depencies I threw in that icon. The icon won't do anything if the .xinitrc file doesn't point to script inside the debroot directory, and that it knows where that directory is.

Most likely what's happening is for one reason or another it's not seeing the script named startd in the debroot directory, or it's not executable (chmod 755 startd). It's also possible it doesn't know where the debroot directory is. Did you create an /etc/debroot file? Change to your debroot directory and type pwd > /etc/debroot if you haven't.

If none of this works, try and run startx from a terminal and see what errors appear.

Thnx for the reply.

Here is what I get when I attempt a startx from the terminal:

#startx
mcookie: not found
xauth: creating new authority file /home/root/.Xauthority
xauth: creating new authority file /home/root/.Xauthority
Using authority file /home/root/.Xauthority
xauth: (stdin):1: bad "add" command line
xauth: creating new authority file /home/root/.Xauthority
xauth: creating new authority file /home/root/.Xauthority
Using authority file /home/root/.Xauthority
xauth: (stdin):1: bad "add" command line

xinit: No such file or directory (errno 2): no server "X" in PATH

Use the -- option, or make sure that /opt/QtPalmtop/bin is in your path and
that "X" is a program or a link to the right type of server
for your display. Possible server names include:


giving up.
xinit: No such file or directory (errno 2): unable to connect to X server
xinit: No such process (errno 3): Server error.
xauth: creating new authority file /home/root/.Xauthority



This is my second attempt at getting this installed. After the first attempt and things went downhill, I started with a clean slate (aka, formatted the 6000 and went back to factory defaults) and proceeded to follow the instructions.

Thanks for the help

I would check that error out. xinit is used to start your Xqt server, then a client (like a window manager, in our case in the chroot environment) is started, when the client exits, xinit shuts down the server. This should be being called from the startx script, so check to make sure the path for the X server is correct in there. If it's looking for a executable named X instead of Xqt, and they aren't linked that could be your problem. Change the startx script, and create a link.

Made suggested changes and no dice... (at least, I think I made them right, if you want to dummy them down I can verify)

I have debroot located at /mnt/card/.debroot

Any other clues? Is there a different set of instructions that may be better?
