Yup,
I've downloaded kdebase, kdelibs, libxml2, libxslt, qt-mt, pcre and libart-lgpl. I would like to install kde to my SD card, but I don't know how to do dry.gif ... Which files do i have to install to my SD card, and which ones do I have to install to the rom?

Can anybody help me? rolleyes.gif
Thank you cool.gif

Hello,

You don't say which Zaurus you have, or if you have any kind of network connection. You'll find all the info you need by searching the forums.

As a pointer for what to search for, you'll probably need to format your SD card with an ext2 filesystem, and then just run package manager, point it at the ipk files you downloaded, and when it asks, tell it to install to SD.

I'm pretty sure there is a discussion about this somewhere on here ...

Good luck,

Mike.

On a C1000...

I used dd to create a 240mb ext3 partition on my sd card, mounted it on /mnt/img, added /mnt/img as an ipkg target, installed kde etc (from commandline) onto image, linked /usr/lib/kde to to relavent dir on the img, linked /home/root/.xinitrc to startkde and voila.

Did it that way so I could keep the sd card as fat and use/loose kde on a whim, used ext3 so the image would have a decent chance of surviving the odd hard reset etc etc.

Ok, I'm really sorry but I'm quite a noob... So I have some questions for you smile.gif

I installed kdelibs and kdebase packages onto the card, there was a lib I had to install seperatly (forget the name) i put that in the root. see the kde with screen shots thread for the packages (thats where I got them from anyway)

My 240mb ext3 file image is mounted on /mnt/img, so add the following line to the end of /etc/ipkg.conf
CODE
dest sdimg /mnt/img

Copy the kde packages to your Z, change to the same directory and
CODE
ipkg -d sdimg install kdepackage.ipk


if you just type ipkg at a command prompt it gives you the usage instructions.

Ok, thank you very much.

I just now have one little problem (and I hope it's the last one smile.gif )... I downloaded the fdisk package for my Zaurus (and installed it), and I'd like to know how to format a SD Card (ext2) with my Z tongue.gif .

I've tried this
CODE
umount /dev/mmcda1
mkfs.ext2 /dev/mmcda1
mount /dev/mmcda1 /mnt/card
but it doesn't work sad.gif .

Anybody biggrin.gif ?
Thanks cool.gif

in a terminal, do :
# df
If it lists :
...
/dev/mmcd/disc0/part1 .... .... .... ... /mnt/card
...

then i'd say : yes.
