Well i really like the simplicity and speed of pdaxrom and it has taken me some time and a lot of switch's back and forth from other roms namely opie before i have been able to work enough out that it is usable and fun smile.gif

having this machine has been a great impetus to learn more about Linux.

ill post in this thread my progress with: compiling apps, useful tips, and even take suggestions/requests from other members.

Do you know how to make ipks? It's much more convenient for people than a zip file...If you don't know I'd be happy to post a tutorial.

ok, i just fixed the "mkipkg" script to solve the following error/problem:
(this is the one i previously suggested downgrading tar for...)

QUOTE
tar: --exclude=CONTROL: Cannot stat: No such file or directory
tar: error exit delayed from previous error



the script is attached to the first post and here's the changes:


original line 124:

CODE
tar -C $pkg_dir -cf $tmp_dir/data.tar . --exclude=$CONTROL



new line 124:

CODE
tar -C $pkg_dir -cf $tmp_dir/data.tar --exclude=$CONTROL .

reading your comment had strangely re-energised me to have another go with frsh gusto, what with the chat scripts generated by gpe gkdial, i figure ive got a better chance of getting my modem working atleast which is what was major factor in leaving this rom...

does any one know of a dialer for pdaxrom ??

gpe was also really annoying me, its way slower and chuggier with cluncks and just trying to install with ipkg take 5-10 times longer, nice to have matchbox though... (being a nube thought it was a pdaxrom thing...) wink.gif

anyway i recon it would have finished flashing by now...

onto finding some feed for the hungry dog...

oh, and ive also discovered the wonders of text-based email clients and have decided to slow down and have more fun ...

Glad to hear you are back at it. wink.gif
pdaXrom for the clamshells comes with pppdialer. Is that not included on yours, or is that not what you are looking for?

QUOTE(telemetric_au @ Apr 12 2007, 10:24 PM)
it comes with no dialer, but does have pppd in a feed, which imlearning more about, which is good... there is no dialer with the 5500 version, is the source available for the one on clamshell ?? (as i looked into gkdial and wvdial before my last rom flash-out too no avail as they were too much for me and the collies versions)
*



the sources are available on ibiblio site, but their storage device on which pdaXrom was located on is dead, so have to wait until they buy and install a new one...

the pppdialer application is a QT application and is linked to QT 3.3.5 on the clamshells. The package manager in fact is also a QT app. I am not sure whether the 5500 has a GUI package manager, but I suspect that it does not because the QT library is quite big and by default is even too large to fit on the clamshells' display....

no it doesnt have gui , but you can install it, but yes it is way too big, as is sylpheed, so im looking into text based email smile.gif

found the source for ppdialer: http://www.filewatcher.com/m/pppdialer-0.0...113116.0.0.html

do you think i can compile it and run it ??

Never know until you try.

I believe that Mutt is available for pdaXrom, but I don't know for sure.

updated the first post with some new apps, such as pine and a 'finished' x11vnc

added a link to 5500 mirror, and here my tip:

in the feed there is a dillo, different version to the "dillo2" pre-installed, this feed version is much better and can actually handle logins and search engines smile.gif

oh, and embeded devices make great upload/download machine's for at night when your sleeping, no fan, low voltage, and portable.

So, how do you install pdaXrom on a Collie? I have looked at earlier posts, but have been unsuccessful in installing it. How are folks installing on to the SD card?

Thanks,

Hi there,
All the files needed seem to be at :

ftp://ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions...urus-5000D-5500

I am doing the install now, all seems good except that mounting local fs [failed] but that make sense as I have only put the initrd and the zImage and booted like that.

Generating a key takes a long while so be patient.

Then I got a command line login and logged as root. no password.

then run startx
then comes a calibrating cross and the gui starts with nothing installed but aterm and dillo2.

I believe the window manager is matchbox.

On the ftp server there are more files, I assume they must be put somewhere on the sd card at boot but not sure what format for the sd card.

first off hello, secondly you can get there wink.gif

yes, you only get dillo and aterm, when i first put it on i seriously thought something was wrong and i missed some crucial step or my files were corrupt... "how can you do anything with this ! ... " but you soon learn there plenty of binary's (apps) there behind the curtain, and enough to do most things. and before long you love the cli and realize it is better for most things that it can do.

now first off, you need to free up some root space as after fresh install youve got under 100k or so and you can get maybe one app on there, probably not, and will find you can only install a few onto a sd or cf as when ipkg does this it symlinks the contents of the package residing on the media card to the root, which takes up some small space.
(the command df shows space info)
up until now ive been moving as much as possible over to my sd, freeing up to a maximum of 4mb on root which may be too much. there may be a few things you want on root, as i can still boot up without sd inserted (but not into x), and may want an ftp client/server etc, if i want to transfer some photo sd-card photo's to my z etc.... and there is a limit to what you can move of and symlink back as many things are needed before the sd is mounted by boot.

a note in regards to the install; you'd want to have your sd or cf formatted as ext if your gonig to install or compile on it

here is what i move off: /opt /root /var, /usr/X11R6, /usr/share, and /usr/apps
once they are mv'd over you symlink them back, e.g ln -s /mnt/card/opt /opt
(note initially opt doesn't exist, but you should create it and symlink it as it will get created/filled on root soon enough) (another tip, you may want to cp -r (copy) the directories over then delete them once they copy properly to avoid loosing something and having to reflash if the mv fails part way...)

now about editing, vi (editor) doesnt work in x(matchbox) but will outside, this can be reached by not doing startx, using 'killall X' from aterm in x or using ctrl+alt+del, which equates to a collie equivelant of calander+contacts+backspace

if you want a different editor you can install leafpad or vim from the feed, alternatively you can transfer the file onto your computer via card or network and edit it from there.

download this tar ball: (120mb)
ftp://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distri...500/feed.tar.gz
it is all the packages of that main feed and will be extremely usefull, as you just unzip it onto a card, direct your /etc/ipkg.conf to it (by removing/editing the first 1-3 lines of ipkg.conf), and do 'ipkg update'. then you can just install anything from it such as leafpad with : 'ipkg -d sd install leafpad' and it will determine the dependencies automatically and install them.

(a tip, if you edit /etc/ipkg.conf so the sd or cf option is the only one by using # at the line begining regarding root and the other options, 'ipkg install leafpad' will automatically go to sd or cf rather than root without specifying it using -d) smile.gif

if you prefer not to get the whole feed and download just a few ipk's or have others from elsewhere not incorporated into a feed and it respective 'Packages' file, you can install them with 'ipkg install -d sd package.ipk' or 'ipkg install package.ipk' (if you've mod'd ipkg.conf)

alternatively you can just access the feed directory of the net if you get your z connected, eg ifconfig/iwconfig

if you want to start compiling you'll need make, gcc, and gcc-headers atleast.
