I have a 5600 zaurus and I am loading OZ 3.5.4 on it (2.4 kernel). It seems to work nicely, but internal flash is low. I would like to move root to SD card. I have looked for altboot.ipk and altboot-conf.ipk in OZ feeds but can not find them. Are they still around?

I also tried Henteges altboot.tar.gz but couldn't quite understand the instructions. My Z keeps crying about 2.6 kernel found while looking for 2.4.
Thanks.
Mark

Thanks for getting back to me. uname -a shows 2.4.18. I installed the 250pxa kernel from http://mirror.hentges.net/www.openzaurus.o.../images/poodle/. I did find altboot.conf, it was buried a little in /www.openzaurus.org/3.5.4/feed/upgrades/machine/poodle. I can now boot from sd card! Cool!

I was using the sharp rom for a couple of years but it's a little limited as to what you can do. I mainly used it because it synced easily with Outlook. But now I am using Linux desktop so I am not tied down.

Is the 3.5.4 oz pretty stable? It seems ok so far. Now to get WPA working. I'm having a little trouble finding info for poodle, so I'll probably be back. Cheers.
