Hi,

I am having a few teehing problems with OZ at the moment.

When ever i try to install local .ipk file (from the OZ feed) I get the message simbolic linking failed.


Also does anyone know of a tutorial on getting USB networking to work with OZ and Fedora Core

Cheers

Are you trying to install to SD? If so, is it formatted ext2? If not, symlinking will always fail since fat16 cannot handle symlinks.

Some always fail due to the way the symlinking is performed.

For example for the file (afaicr this is how it works):

/media/card/packages/opt/QtPalmtop/bin/foo

it will first of all try to symlink the file itself:

ln -s /media/card/packages/opt/QtPalmtop/bin/foo /opt/QtPalmtop/bin/foo

then move down the filename:

ln -s /media/card/packages/opt/QtPalmtop/bin/ /opt/QtPalmtop/bin/
ln -s /media/card/packages/opt/QtPalmtop/ /opt/QtPalmtop/
ln -s /media/card/packages/opt/ /opt/
ln -s /media/card/packages/ /

At some point, most probably before the last step, this symlinking chain will fail as the file in question already exists. This is normal.

Not sure if there's anything for fedora core specifically but there are usb howtos on the oz.org website and a pinned thread in this part of the forum, have a look in there and see if anything works. When you work out how to do it please add it to the pinned thread if it's not there already,

Cheers,
