Hi All,

I've just installed OZ 3.5.4 on my sl-5500, (opie-image, 32-32 zimage) it flashed just fine, hooked up to the internet useing a xircom cf card no problem, opened package manager and updated list no problem, tried to install "task-opie-multimedia" problem...

installed to ramdownloaded and started install just fine
then had the following errors...

"Error linkling '/media/ram/packages/opt/QtPalmtop/pics/opieplayer2/skins/default_landscape/skin_down.orig.png' to '/opt/QtPalmtop/pics/opieplayer2/skins/default_landscape/skin_down.orig.png'

and many others that look like the skin links

the opie players show up in the applications tab but error out not finding the opieplayer2 skin


I fairly new to the zaurus but like it when it works smile.gif

Please help I need to hear my MP3's


Thanks smile.gif

Did you try using the default mediaplayer in sharprom? That one works fine. I never got anything working on the opiemediaplayer.

Dear Tom,

I think I know the cause of this error, it is described in this thread...

Postnote : I have submitted this as bug # 1755 on the Opie bugzilla.

The problem is with the package manager, or perhaps one of the programs it is calling (?ipkg-link).

1. You can try installing opie-aqpkg instead, which does not seem to have that problem.
2. After installing with 'package manager' you can enter this command in the shell...

CODE
ipkg-link mount /media/ram/packages/


(there is probably a way to use 'ipkg-link add', you can try to interpret the instructions in the wiki.

3. You can manually create the missing directory, which would be /opt/QtPalmtop/pics/opieplayer2/skins/default_landscape. You will probably have to create a whole lot of other missing directories as well.

Cheerio, David.
