I recently installed pdaXqtrom onto an SD card on my C3100 (standard Sharp ROM) and it all works. Fine! smile.gif

Then I decided to install something else (can't remember) which also required opie-sh. So I installed opie-sh. Then I decided that whatever it was I'd installed I didn't want to keep and so uninstalled it together with opie-sh.

A little while later I found that I couldn't start X or X applications via their icons. I eventually put 2 and 2 together and re-installed opie sh. Everything worked again. biggrin.gif

So it appears that installing opie-sh replaced something similar installed by pdaXqtrom. I could leave things as they are but I'm afraid that sometime in the future, when I've forgotten about all this, I may decide that I don't want opie-sh and uninstall it again. sad.gif

Can anyone tell me what in pdaXqtrom would have been overwritten, where it would have been installed and where I could find it again without going through the whole install again (One and a half to three hours worth).

Why not unpack the ipk with tar (something like tar xzf opie-sh.ipk) and take a look if you know it's this very package?

The package comes as a gz file anyway and I have unpacked it but cannot find anything that remotely resembles opie-sh or similar.

I assume it's a ipk file? This is a tar + gz (or ar + gz) with a different suffix and contains a file control.tar.gz (meta info + install scripts) and data.tar.gz (the files). Unpack these. It's either a file in the data archive or a script in the control file that's causing this problem, I'd say. I can be wrong of course.

If you started the program from the command line, you would most likely get an error message. Probably some symlink to some library got deleted during deinstall.
