Does anyone have a tarball of a beta4 install available that I can use? I want to attempt to use it under altboot but I need the beta4 files. The install files contain rootfs.img and kernel.img but that is in jffs2 and ppcboot format respectively. I could probably build it myself if I had a PC to run the Builder but at the moment I just have my 2 Zauri to work with so any help would be appreciated.
I am getting sick of OZ since it has too many flaws in areas where there should not be any...

would that be a way to run Pdaxrom Beta 4 on the C3000? I am too weary of OZ's many bugs, Opie works fine but doesn't have the apps I need, Gpe is far too experimental...

Dear Meanie,

I am trying to install the builder to get the files but it will probably
take a few days since I am not that skilled. May be sashz can help ?

BR,

Dear Meanie,

I have installed the builder and have done the first 2 steps as documented
in the pdaxrom-builder fast start. How do I build the rootfs.img and kernel.img ?
The only files in the bootdisk are the u-boot files.

BR,

Felix.

And yet you don't seem to have filed any bugreports in the bugtracker or elaborated on what those bugs are.

actually, I did file quite a few bugs until I got sick of filing them. oz is really a great distro in theory, clean and lean code, etc... however, when it comes to actual usage in terms of usability and productivity, it is a long way from being perfect. i don't expect oz to be perfect, but whenever someone mentions something about oz not being 100% perfect, then some people get very defensive which is very off putting to say the least.
and just so you know, I still think Sharp distro is the most stable and usable (with some tweaking) even though it is using older libraries and kernel.
imho, neither OZ/GPE, OZ/OPIE or pdaXrom is ready to replace the Sharp distro yet.
but still, i want to see what they have to offer which might persuade me to switch one day in the very far future....

Dear Meanie,

I have built the kernel.img and rootfs.img.
But then I cannot find the elusive rootfs tar files.
Will they be stored in the /tmp area ?

BR,

Felix.

Dear Meanie,

I've found the root files. Can you advise where I can upload them to you ?

BR,

Good Business... its good to see someone is putting a good effort towards getting the lastest release working one C3000 or getting to work using altboot anyway...

I've not tried beta 4 or 5 (121) but from what I've read it sounds even less stable and more experimental than OZ/GPE although I'd like to be proved wrong.

Why do you want beta 4 Meanie? Whats better/ more stable about this release than the latest pdaX? I would much rather see a 2.4 kernel based beta3 for the c3k.

Keep us updated please Meanie!
