Hi,

I would like to install OZ 3.5.4RC with GPE onto my C3000 but the installation fails. After erasing the flash, it fails with:
--------------------------------
...
HDD RO file system
Now formatting...
Now extracting...
xf: not found
Error!
...
--------------------------------

I downloaded (and placed in the root of the CF card) the following files (from the download folder of 3.5.4RC):

- gpe-image-spitz-20051021200253.rootfs.tar.gz (hdimage1.tgz)
- updater.sh.spitz (updater.sh)
- zImage-2.6.14-rc1-spitz-20051021200253.bin (zimage.bin)

Since there wasn't any pivotboot image file in the 3.5.4RC download folder, I took the pivotboot file from the download folder of 3.5.3 (pivotboot-image-spitz-20050428205242.rootfs.img) and used it as initrd.bin.

I am new to the Zaurus world so I may be doing something completely wrong.

Any help is appreciated!

* you need to upload gnu-tar to your medium. Be sure to use the supplied updater.sh, not an older one
* 3.5.4-RC ships with kernel 2.6 for the 3000 which boots directly from hda1 - no pivotboot image needed.

Thanks a lot.
It works now with the gnu-tar copied to the root folder of the CF card.

I recently post as comment on the C3000 installation page on the OZ website about how to installa the 3.5.4RC1 on the C3100.
