I'm running Cacko 1.23 on an SL-C860 and am very satisfied with that. However, I would like to be able to update and install packages from the device itself.

I have a problem with Package Manager, which is started with the "Add/Remove Software" icon:
I can start the application, and press the "Install packages via networks" button. But if I press the "Package Servers" button and try to change or add feed servers, the Zaurus freezes up - completely! I cannot even ssh into it any longer, or do anything from a ssh session that was already running.

Any ideas?

I have a problem executing the 'top' command on an SL-C860 with Cacko 1.23 installed. It seems the binary file making up the 'top' utility is corrupted. Has anyone else here seen this?

This is what I experience:

root@zaurus:~# top
bash: /usr/bin/top: cannot execute binary file
root@zaurus:~# ls -l /usr/bin/top
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 16 Dec 22 19:11 /usr/bin/top -> /usr/bin.rom/top
root@zaurus:~# ls -l /usr/bin.rom/top
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 53476 Sep 15 08:46 /usr/bin.rom/top
root@zaurus:~# file /usr/bin.rom/top
/usr/bin.rom/top: data

After having installed Cacko 1.23 on an C860, I have tried using the "Add/Remove Software" utility. I experience some strangeness when doing that. I have trawled through the threads in this forum, and cannot find any other description of this problem. I try to describe the problem below. Please answer in this thread if you have seen something similar or if you have a solution. Thanks in advance.

1) I can open the "Add/Remove Software" utility without problems.
2) I can access the "Install packages" and the "Uninstall packages" buttons without problems.
3) When I use the "Install packages via networks" button, I get an overview showing nothing (I donĀ“t know if it should).
4) I can use the button with a yellow icon, and see which servers are set. Default only the default Cacko feed was set.
5) If I use "Cancel" (either the Cancel button or the 'X' in the window) there is no problem returning to the previous overview. If I use "OK", the device freezes up. From that point I can only get in contact with the device by removing the battery and booting again. The freeze occurs whether or not I have changed anything before pressing "OK".
6) Any changes made before pressing "OK" stay (even though the freeze occurs). Any changes made before pressing "Cancel" do not stay.

I am trying out OZ/GPE for the first time. I have installed 3.5.3 on an C860. It seems that I cannot get outside my LAN after configurating the wlan0 interface. I can ping the LAN address of my router/gateway, but cannot access any addresses outside the router.

There was no /etc/resolv.conf file, when I looked under /etc. I have created that now, with the correct IP addresses of primary and secondary nameservers. That doesn't help.

Any ideas?

I have a saved copy of kino2_0.22_arm.ipk which I downloaded quite some time ago. Today I went to this site's download section to see if there is a newer version. The version there is kino2_0.3_arm.ipk.

Which of these is the newer version? I should think that 2_0.22 is newer than 2_0.3. I find it hard to believe, however, that I have a newer version than the one in ZUG's download section, since ZUG is hosting new Kino2 releases now, as I understand it.

One more thing: I am unable to find Kino2 through the categories in the download section. Only when I enter 'kino2' in the search textbox, do I get a link to a Kino2 .ipk package. Can anyone here find Kino2 through the categories?
