Full Version: Help W/ Debian Install (xqt Installed)
OESF Portables Forum > Everything Else > Archived Forums > Distros, Development, and Model Specific Forums > Zaurus - Everything Development > X/Qt
so I ventured out to Meanie's site, and decided to jump in the pool. XQT was installed with the jumbo cram file. Everything went well. Now I am trying to get the Pocket workstation installed.
I type this: ./ /hdd3/debroot

I get this info
creating swaffile /hdd3/swapfile
dd: /hdd3/swapfile: No such file or directory
mkswap: /hdd3/swapfile created
swapon: swapon: No such file or directory

Okay, so I figure someone will be able to understand all this and help me. Please be gentl - I am a newbie. I
figure that I need to change something so it is not read only. I used the cram files and the generic files. I have 1gig SD card and a 4gig CF card. latest Cacko 1.23 'Nastya' ; X/qt works, cuz I explored some of the new icons and they work i.e., ( gimp, Ethereal, Dia, FileManager etc).

Thanks for your help. I would like the debian, cuz I would like to install some really nice bible study proggies and get ruby going!


try sudo ./ /hdd3/debroot or run it as root - maybe that will help....
hdd3 is the hard disk of a C3*00. I don't think this script is meant for the C860, which I guess from your sig is what you have. You might need to edit the script to point to the mount point of your SD card (or CF).

just type ./ /mnt/cf/debroot or ./ /mnt/card/debroot
biggrin.gif Whhhhhhhhoooooooooooooooo tongue.gif I got it running!!!!! laugh.gif I used this
./ /mnt/card/debroot

Meanie Your are the greatest! Your scripts are great even for newbies like me! Thank you the rest of you who cared enough to also give replies!

Now to figure out debian and get some good bible programs going!
