I have installed Open Zaurus to an SL 5500. Now I show the following.

Total Memory 62412 kB

Used 10124 kB

Buffers kB

Cached 12256 kB

Free 40004 kB

Internal Storage /dev/root

Used 14352 kB Available 112 kB

SD Card

Used 12368 kB Available 226822

Inspite of showing free memory when I try to save data to the device it says no memory left. I have tried creating a local user account but it will not write to /home.

Hope this is not to basic a question. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Hi,

If understand your issue correctly, you are trying save to a place that has no
space (not memory as in RAM) left. You have plenty of memory left, but that
is not where /home is located. I believe this occurs when using (installing)
the 64-0 configuration. It's been a while since I used OZ, but if you "move"
/home to the SD card, you will then be able to save as much as the SD card
has free. I suspect that you will find instructions or posts that will cover that,
most likely in one of the three OZ forums.
