Hi Folks -

I'm taking the plunge today and love everything I see of pdaXrom so far, save the problem I'm experiencing installing apps to SD. I've tried my SD formatted FAT16, FAT32 and EXT2 (using the EXT2FSD utility found at SourceForge). Every time I try to do an install, I see the message in the log:

tar: ./control: Cannot change ownership to uid 501, gid 501: Operation not permitted

I know the package is being saved successfully at /mnt/card/home/home/tmp/ipkg so I know the card is mounted and rw accessible. Currently my SD is formatted FAT16 for simplicity sake. TIA for any eyes and hands that can help me through this.

Regards,
Stac

You can install only to unix filesystem (ext2, 3).

roughly do this :

unmount your SD
CODE
# umount /mnt/card


Format it as ext2
CODE
# mkfs.ext2 /dev/mmcd/disc0/part1


Pull out your card, re-insert it or
CODE
mount /dev/mmcd/disc0/part1 /mnt/card


Try installing again.

NOTE : ALL THE DATA ON THE CARD WILL BE LOST.

OK - I reformatted the card to ext2 and gave an abiword install another shot...

and get the very same error message... the SD card, if this means anything, is an ATP high speed 1GB card (9.8MB/s R/W)...

Is there a way to reformat the card to ext3 on the Z itself so I can try that?

TIA!

Chero - thanks very much - formatting the card as ext2 ON THE Z seems to have made the difference!

It's really nice and warm in here :-D I gotta tell you, I've had my Z-6000L for a few months now and have been on the fence about whether I wanted/needed it anymore because I was really disappointed that it looked like a dead-end. Now that I've found this place, I feel like my machine has found a new lease on life and I'm staying...

Donation on the way... and kudos to everyone for the quick help!

Stac
