This is a problem with the IRK.conf file, that I thought was fixed in the current version.  In any case, the easiest way is to drop out of Opie, install it from the command line, and then copy the /etc/skel/IRK.conf file (I think that's the location) to ~/Settings/

Then you should be golden.

OK I found IRK.conf in /etc

There was a folder called IRK.conf in ~/Settings/ and it was linked to /media/card/home/root/Settings/IRK.conf/

I deleted the folders, copied /etc/IRK.conf to /media/card/home/root/Settings/IRK.conf then
ln -s /media/....../IRK.conf ~/Settings/IRK.conf

Rebooted and I now have a fully working infra-red keyboard.

Many, Many, Many Thanks.

Forget the ZUG feed, download the IRK package from here

then follow the instructions in this thread.

Samac, I get the following error when I try to install "irk_0.11-r2_arm.ipk" ...

"Nothing to be done
An error ocurred, return value: 4.
Collected errors:
Cannot find package irk.
Check the spelling or perhaps run 'ipkg update'

I issued "ipkg -d sd --force-depends install irk_0.11-r2_arm.ipk"

What's wrong? sad.gif

Read the entire thread the answer is there, pay special attention to the threads that acpkendo contributed.

Samac, thanks for your note there.

Yes, I have read the entire thread many times and tried the steps outlined by acpkendo as well ...

Do not use the ipk from the ZUG feed on OZ--none of the packages from external sites I've used have worked on 3.5.3.

The solution had something to do with strange dependency errors and/or the naming of the packages--Mickeyl commented that ipkg was too smart for its own good. The solution is as follows:

1) download the ipk to the Z (sorry, can't help you as to why it won't download--maybe try downloading to a desktop and transferring)

2) disable all feeds in /etc/ipkg.conf or via the package manager (you needn't erase them, just disable).

3) run ipkg update (or update via the package manager)

4) install the local copy of IRK (ipkg install ./irk-blahblah_0.11.0-r0_arm.ipk, or via the package manager). With no other dependencies in the database, it should install cleanly.

5) reboot (you can probably just restart Opie, but I haven't had a lot of luck with that).

6) re-enable all the feeds in /etc/ipkg.conf or the package manager

7) update


It is very apparent that acpkendo's post is the one I had to try as it is about the only instruction there is! rolleyes.gif and I have tried it like at least 3 times and hence I reposted asking for help as I keep getting the same error messages.

I am out of ideas how this installation will not even show the input method in the input selection. If there is anyone else with an alternate feed or installation steps that works for Belkin Universal keyboard (IR) with hentges rom oz3.5.3, please advise!

Thanks!

Have you tried to use the irk-belkin_0.11-r1_arm.ipk from the 3.5.3 opie feed?

I tried both, but I'll give it another shot (again) ... unsure.gif ... another shot for me is better than admitting defeat! ... oooh ... hentges is doing practically everything I need ... I really hope it works this time ...

btw, does it matter if I have different versions of the IRK builds in my CF or SD card even though I am issuing the right command? Thx!

Just retried, now the error becomes

"Nothing to be done
An error ocurred, return value: 4.
Collected errors:
Cannot find package irk-belkin
Check the spelling or perhaps run 'ipkg update'"

How?

btw, when I run "ipkg update" as per acpkendo's post, should be having the wifi card in? I am already running the latest oz3.5.3 and the hentges rom, will "ipkg update" mess things up? I've read some where that ipkg in the hentges rom is already the latest and should not require an update again. What gives?

No it won't mess things up, and you have to be connected to the internet to run ipkg update (not to be confused with upgrade!) and you will need all the depends like lirc_0.7.0-r5_collie.ipk from the /machine/collie feed.

ok, apparently I did not click on the "update" after disabling each entry in apkg. Now it gives error one, missing dependency on lirc ... biggrin.gif

hmmm ... lirc fails to install ... grrr ...

You will also need the lirc-modules_0.7.0-r3_collie.ipk smile.gif

Hi Greg,

Thanks for your time and help.

I just tried installing lirc-modules_0.7.0-r3_collie.ipk and got the following errors:

mknod: /dev/lirc: File exists
postinst script returned status 1
ERROR: lirc-modules.postinst returned 1

shall I remove /dev/lirc? ohmy.gif

EDIT: I just deleted /dev/lirc and retried ... it still had the status 1 error without the mknod failure... hmmm

No! When I say you 'need' something for it to work... you should check to see if you have it before you try to install it.smile.gif

OK... I just checked and the Hentges rom comes with lirc and the lirc-modules installed. I followed acpkendo's instructions in this thread like samac said and had no problems installing the irk-belkin ipk. The problem is I don't have a keyboard to check it out... I was just trying to help you make yours work.

I would suggest you clean up the mess you probably have from this (sorry about that) and follow acpkendo's instructions using the irk-belkin ipk.
