OK looks like I'm not having much luck getting anything semi-complicated working on my Zaurus :-(
This time I tried Pocket Workstation. I downloaded http://www.chuckster.org/zaurus/zaurus-deb...-v18-b01.tar.gz and http://www.chuckster.org/zaurus/xqt-debian-install.zip and ran the install script. It all seemed to go OK except for the following errors:
/bin/ln: `/home/root/.icewm': File exists
Debian files extracted.
ln: /etc/rc5.d/S50mnt: No such file or directory
ln: /etc/rc6.d/K50mnt: No such file or directory
I notice that rc5.d and rc6.d are in fact in /etc/rc.d/rc[5|6].d so I manually made the symlinks to /etc/rc.d/init.d/mntloop .
However, wherever I look the debian executable doesn't exist! When I try to execute startd, it can't find icewm-session (and can't unmount /proc - operation not permitted, that's probably a side effect of something else). Anyone got any ideas?
Given all these problems I've been having getting pre-packaged things working (which I presume are pretty standard things), what are the chances my original install is a bit weird? (This IS a secondhand Zaurus - purchased from Sofmap, I presume they already did the factory reset though.) What might be the most painless way of returning the whole lot (ROM and HDD) to the factory-shipped state so I can start fresh (before I've got too much stuff installed)?
