I was looking for a driver for Sharp's CF camera and found a thread that mentioned pdaxrom has a newer driver that works in 2.4.20 kernels.
I downloaded this ipk (zcamera_0.0.1-2_armv5tel.ipk) and like all the other ipks in this format, I couldn't open it to extract the file I was looking for.

I tried this in both windows and on my Zaurus.

In windows, I tried winrar, winzip, and pkunzip
none of these worked.

On my zaurus, I tried Meanie's ipktools package.
I tried compatipk, unpackipk, and ar
I also renamed the file to *.deb and tried deb2ipk

I also tried ipkg-tools, and that didn't work.

What do I need to have to extract a file from a pdaxrom armv5tel ipk?

I think I finally found this driver, but I still need to know how to open and extract files from these ipks.
I also did a LOT of searching and didn't find a method/program to open these.
I searched for about 4 hours last night for a solution to this, besides installing pdaxrom.
Sharp/Cacko ipks can be opened with many different programs. This is how I get a file, if I only need just one file that is inside an ipk.

For a pdaXrom ipk using Linux or on your Z, you would do:
tar xzf name-of.ipk
tar xzf data.tar.gz

cacko ipk files and pdaxrom ipk files are the same format. if it doesn't open, then it probably is due to a corrupted ipk file. download it again or download it from a mirror site

Your'e right Meanie.
Most of the ipks I downloaded for pdaxrom have been posted in the forum and firefox buggers them up.
All the pdaxrom feeds that I have saved in text files are now gone. (I got the links from your page last January)
Why do they move so much?
I don't usually use pdaxrom armv5tel ipks, but on the rare occasion when I have downloaded one, it was corrupted.
