Both jpmatrix and I found that the rootfs tarball is corrupted. It seems something went wrong went i run "tar -cpjf" (but it worked for the very first tarball). Now I am making a new tarball. Will upload it in a few hours (if things go well). Sorry for this. smile.gif

Update:

A new tarball is ready. It is tested (twice actually) and it is fine. Now waiting for jpmatrix's ftp to be up again. wink.gif

Hope the 'new' tarball and scripts are thoroughly debugged. I also hope I won't be trying to use it any time soon. smile.gif The EABI install I did using cortez's method, in combination with the ZDevil scripts and your tips at the wiki, is still OK! Thanks also to dlj0 for his X tips.

Obligatory stupid question:- Is it possible to do this install without u-boot?

My reluctance to use u-boot is from the same cause I'm reluctant to use angstrom or any of the earlier OPIE stuff. When I scan the relevant forums: so many recurring problems.... sad.gif

My only real complaint with my EABI system is the inability to use X as non-root. But I'll figure something out soon I hope. (Before someone asks what I'm worrying about::- My fingers sometimes outrun the brain and root is very dangerous on those occasions! rolleyes.gif )

Cheers

Of course if you already have a working setup running, you don't need this rootfs. It is for fresh and new install. Yet it is also a better backup rootfs than the unconfigured ones in case things got messed up.
A few users and I have verified that the rootfs is working, and it is working without using any more after installation scripts.
To be fair, u-boot and a distro are two totally different things. Indeed so many users (I for one) have qualms about the un-userfriendlieness of uboot. But talking about the distros themselves is a separate issue here.
As for running X as non-root user, flux has already come up with a good solution, which has already been wikified iirc.

Tks ZDevil!

Your 1st tar ball did help me bringing up real Debian on my dog! Unluckily, as I messed up with wifi setting, I rebooted it and only found that /dev/hda1 failed to be mounted again. Not sure what caused that, so it's been put aside for a while (well, also because I'd been busy for some days).

I'll try the new tar ball again and report.

OT: say hi to dinorex also laugh.gif

Sorry to say this but ... (after editing the md5sum file to remove some white spaces) :

QUOTE
wasp@home:/storage/dl/zaurus-debian$ md5sum -c zaurus_eabi_rootfs_071201.tar.bz2.md5sum
zaurus_eabi_rootfs_071201.tar.bz2: OK
