I have created an experimental version of pdaXii13 which lives on the NAND instead of the MicroDrive so it can be flashed for C1000, C3100 and C3200.
In essence, I extracted the akita initrd.bin from pdaXrom beta3 and added my patches and scripts and recreated the initrd.bin.
This basically means, it is pdaXrom beta3 bug fixed with the same fixes as pdaXii13 on the C3000 so it is equivalent to pdaXii13 base.

To differentiate between the two versions, I will call the orginal pdaXii13 for the C3000 which installs to the MicroDrive pdaXii13 Spitz
This new version for the C1000 which installs to the NAND will be called pdaXii13 Akita

got stuck with three important projects all at once and having fun juggling priorities and trying to manage time to work on each.

There won't be any more releases for a while sad.gif

Meanoo:

I've just tried installing pdaXii13 akita on my c3100. It installed OK but I get a FAILED when it tries to load Module Dependencies on boot.

After I'd tried booting pdaXii13 I ran the latest pdaXii13 spitz installer and installed the 5.2b hdimage. After rebooting nothing seemed to have changed and it didn't ask me to copy /etc or /home from Microdrive to NAND as it says in your install instructions. What commands should I use to do this? Is there anything else I will need to do to complete my upgrade to pdaXii13 full?

I do get the following request when trying to install a package from the command line.

" The following package ere previously requested but have not been installed: libgaim libgaim-protocols libgaim-ssl
Install them now [y/n] ? "

When I select yes it gives a file not found error. Even after I run an ipkg update. When I select no it lets me install the program I want to install eg. gnumeric.

I'll just load Gaim anyways to satisfy this however just an fyi from a clean load.

Great work Meanie. I never tried Beta3 however I'm liking it so far.

To upgrade pdaXii13 base to full on C3100/C3200, make sure your microdrive is mounted.
if /media/fakeroot does not exist, create it manually. after you reboot, it should prompt you to format hdd2 and hdd3 followed by asking you to copy /etc and /home before X is started.

if it doesn't happen, exit X and run mkfs.init

if nothing happens, remove /etc/.hdd and run mkfs.init again.

if still nothing happens, check what cat /proc/deviceinfo/product says and if it is not reporting the right model, then modify mkfs.init and remove the device check line


btw, since I dont have a C1000 and dont have much free time atm either, I will not be updating pdaXii13 akita. If anyone wants to continue on enhancing it or fixing bugs, you can download the tarball that contains the contents of the initrd.bin file and a script to generate it. The tarball also contains mkfs.jffs2 for the Z so the initrd.bin can be build from a Z. Just add.remove/replace files under the nand directory and run the mkinitrd to generate a new initdrd.bin

Just tested it out last night, works out of the box once I repart the flash ROM to use 64mb. However rebooting the unit now gets me into the prompt login and I cannot get back to X again. sad.gif

Will reflash and try again. Also, need to get the remaining packages to try out. smile.gif

Hmmm ... so for Akita, how do we upgrade pdaXii13 base to full? Any links to packages so we can just do a single update instead of pulling down packages from feed individually? Thanks! smile.gif

I got the C1000 and am testing out pdaXii13Akita as we speak. smile.gif
