- I have X/Qt installed to the "ROM" area on Hiro, so it doesn't "take up any space". It runs just fine, but updating it will be a bugger. (snicker)
- I have Debian & OpenOffice installed to an ext2-formatted SD card, but OpenOffice has been a little wonky, and I found this thread that seems to relate to it, and provide directions to correct it.
- I followed these directions, but apt-get kept trying to hit the web for its update run. I poked around here at OESF and found (a thread I have no link to) that says sources.list can be edited to contain "deb files:<path> debs" and it will work. It doesn't, complaining that <list> can't be parsed.
- So I do a "man sources.list" (yes! i *really* wish sharp put that in!) and find out it wants some extra stuff after the path, and it seems it wants *two* things there, not just one, but it's not too particular about what those two things are.
- I update sources.list and now it get some error about not being able to find <really monster long path>Packages.gz, and maybe I should run update to fix it. Well, I did run upate to get the error to start with.
- So I'm kinda stuck. Man on apt-get didn't help a lot. Any ideas? I'd like fonts to work in OpenOffice a little better than they do now. Thanks!...
