Full Version: How To Mount Qtopia 2.1 Rom On My Desktop

I down loaded qtopia-2.1.2-6000-beta-rom.zip for the Zaurus 6000 and unzipped it.

Is it now possible for me to mount initrd.bin contained in the zip file on my x86 running Suse 10. I've installed mkfs.jffs2 on this system.

Any hints appreciated.

I goggled around a bit and found out how to mount and load Trolltech's Qtopia 2.1 beta distribution. These steps were found on "http://www.oesf.org/index.php?title=C3000_Device_Specifics"

modprobe mtdcore
modprobe jffs2
modprobe mtdram total_size=5120 erase_size=16
modprobe mtdchar
mknod /dev/mtdblock0 b 31 0
modprobe mtdblock
losetup -o 16 /dev/loop0 ./initrd.bin
dd if=/dev/loop0 of=/dev/mtdblock0
losetup -d /dev/loop0
mount -t jffs2 /dev/mtdblock0 /mymountpoint
cd /mymountpoint

I am attempting to modify it with Qtopia 2.2
