Hi there,

I'm trying to install qpdf2_freetype-2.2.1-20040217_arm.ipk on my C3000. (read about it on meanie's site)
when using the GUI installer, there is no package inside to be found, using terminal

#ipkg install qpdf2_freetype-2.2.1-20040217_arm.ipk

zcat: qpdf2_freetype-2.2.1-20040217_arm.ipk: nog in gzip format
zcat: stdin: unexpected end of file
ipkg_install_file: ERROR unpacking control.tar.tgz from qpdf2_freetype-2.2.1-20040217_arm.ipk

I already tried about 10 versions found on the net, I can not install one. Could somebody point me to a version that installs OK, or tell me what I'm doing wrong?

Hi fellow Zaurus users,

while playing a bit to much with my C3000, trying to get VPNc working I modified
/root/etc/rc.d/rc.rofilesys and now and then the Zaurus just reboots while installing software.

could someone please post their unmodified C3000 rc.rofilesys or mail it to

Thanks for helping me to heal my Zaurus :-)

after recovering my Zaurus from a failed openbsd install, I restored everything, however hdd3 seems to be empty en read only.

in /home/zaurus Documents is symlink to /hdd3/Documents (and hdd3 is empty)

I tried fsck, found some problems but this didn't help. Also tried resetting the device back to factory settings, but hdd3 remains empty.

Is there anyone on this board who can help me? thanks!

Hi everybody, I have a problem with my C3000. I tried installing OpenBsd using the ipk, but encountered some errors while installing OpenBsd. Now I want to delete everything OpenBsd related on my zaurus, so decided to completely restore the zaurus back to japanese. Every time I reboot now (even after restoring) I get the openbsd bootloader asking to boot openbsd or linux. how do I get rid of this? I was searching in de Diagnotsics Menu and found a HDD restore option, is this wat I'm looking for? thanks in advance for helping me to restore my zaurus!
