I have tried to install several programs on my 4 GB SD card, but I always get the following error message:

"Not enough storage memory for installation"

I have 2773MB available on the SD card, so I don't really understand the problem.
The only thing I can think of is the sharp installer doesn't want to install to a 4GB SD card.
The SD card is formatted as ext2.
I used the command "mke2fs -m 0 /dev/mmcda1" to format it so I wouldn't have the 5% overhead loss.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Doug

Since you said I had to run "sudo ipk the_ipkg_name" I installed sudo_0.1_arm.ipk.
This is an old version I used to have on my SL-5500 ... I couldn't find a newer version in any of the feeds.

I copied the code you gave me to a file which I named "ipk" (because you said to run "sudo ipk") and made it executable.
In the terminal as root, I cd to /mnt/card where I have "ipk" and "amortize_1.0.0_arm.ipk" located for testing.
When I run "sudo ipk amortize_1.0.0_arm.ipk" I get an error message something like "not found: sudo ipk".

So I must be doing something wrong.

Sorry to be such a pain, but I'm lost.

Thanks,
Doug

I'm going to guess that the directory you put the 'ipk' file into was not in your path, in which case you'd need to specify the path to the executable. If you're in the directory containing the executable, you could do:
sudo ./ipk amortize_1.0.0_arm.ipk

A better solution, if you're planning to use this script, would be to put it into a directory that is in your path. That could be /usr/bin or some other directory where you store executables.

BTW, you don't need to run sudo if you're logged in as root. The sudo command allows you to run commands with root privileges while you are logged in as a normal user. If you're root, just leave the sudo part off.

I've tried all combinations of the command and I can't get past the "not found" error.
I installed pdaXqtrom using Meanie's pdaXqtrom-install.sh script and didn't have any problem at all.

Thanks for the reply,
