1) about the size :
- there is an ipk around somewhere that does show the size
- I'll check the size of the packages (after installing)
2) about df not working for /mnt/cflinux :
- are you sure you installed to cf, or did you install to /mnt/cflinux (which is a common dir if nothing is mounted to it - ls will work then).
- what does df show ?
3) about mounting at startup :
- search the forum for "partitioning SD". There is a thread where is explained what to do.
- to mount it manually, I think the command is "mount /dev/hda2 /mnt/cflinux" (/mnt/cflinux must exist)
4) about installing :
- did you replace (package.you.want.to.install) with the correct names ?
1) After "manual mounting, i've got :
- df on /mnt/cf : 324392 k-bytes (my FAT partition)
- df on /mnt/cflinux : 170339 k-bytes (ext2)
2) I've no longer observed this phenomenon : "ls" working and "df" non working. Now, both of them run fine.
3) Despite a dedicated line into /etc/fstab, my partition /mnt/cflinux is still not automatically mounted (line = /dev/hda2<TAB>/mnt/cflinux<TAB>auto<TAB>noauto,owner, as well as for /dev/hda1 which mounts perfectly and automatically as /mnt/cf).
The thread about "partitionning SD" speaks all along about the file /etc/sdcontrol. But I'm not SD, I'm CF ...! and I've found nothing like /etc/cfcontrol.
I think that there is also a CF access pb due to the fact that I go in the USB system tool, and select the Disk choice, precisely on the CF device (which gives access to /mnt/cf). Then, my Z + its CF acts as a USB key. But I have observed some dysfunctionning after such uses ...
4) about installing : Yes ...! I've perfectly taken the correct name ...! :-))))
Each ipkg command gives me error like :
# ipkg -d /mt/cflinux install /mnt/cf/kdebase* <RETURN>
ERROR: File not found: /usr/lib/ipkg/lists/cacko-unstable
You probably want to run `ipkg update'
Installing kdebase...[AND HERE, AFTER A LOOOONG TIME:]Done.
*** Command: add
*** Locating package
Package "kdebase" not found on external storages.
. One thing surprising inside that is that it begins with an error message (till ... update').
. Then the line "Installing ..... Done." seems to indicate that something has correctly run.
. And then a second error message ("...not found ...") which seems desesperate for this way of installing.
5) Of course, KDE fails to start normally, without surprise after all that :
a. If I start the normal WM, and then type "startkde" in an aterm, I have : startkde : not found".
b. If I try a "ls /usr/lib", I have a long listing, but "ls /usr/lib/kde" gives "ls ... no such file or directoy".
c. But "ln -sf /usr/lib/kde/bin/startkde ~/.xinitrc" gave no comment, and "startx" has started something strange : I have had 3 great "term" windows opened, no task bar, nothing graphic, and hopefully, typing exit, all has shut and i could come back to the normal command-line. I made "rm ~/.xinitrc", reput the original one which I had copied as .xinitrc_old, and now my "normal" WM starts again. It's an adventure ...!!!
6) I've found (but I don't re-find where) that I also had to install : libxml2, libxslt, libart, pcre, qt-mt, and I've added kdepim qt-headers because it sounded respectively interesting & reasonnable ...
7) And for the end : ... Do you have sense of humour ...? I've been said on an other side that "XFCE" would be preferable to KDE which asks too much processor-power and is too complex for a machine like the Zaurus. And ... I see that you use XFCE ...? What do you think about the compared installation and uses of KDE & XFCE ?
TIA for all helpers, and 1st of all for all readers ...!
