Hi,

I ve tried for a while to install opera 7.30 on sharp 3.13 rom on the Collie.

here is the story so far :

http://www.tyrannozaurus.com/?q=node/408

At my latest post sdjf asked me a snapshot of the error I get when doing qinstall [packagename] from command line. It opens the qinstall GUI and the following message (see shot) appears.

The origin of the opera ipk is :

http://www.tyrannozaurus.com/feed/contribs...30.9965_arm.ipk

and I ve checked the mdsum.

Any suggestions?

I may be wrong, but I have gotten this message before on my C3100 with Cacko.
Try either of these things:
1. Rename "opera_sl-5x00-7.30.9965_arm.ipk" to "opera-sl-5x00-7.30.9965_arm.ipk"

2. or the filename may not be an issue. Since the error says failed to extract, look into this.
When a package decompresses itself, it does this in this directory. (on my C3100)
/home/tmp/ipkg or /home/tmp/ipkg/inst
Check the permissions of that directory, maybe this version of Opera will not extract because of a permissions issue in the temporary directory.

3. The package could be "packaged wrong" (maybe the control file is in error) I'm no expert at this, but the second thing above seems to be a problem with some packages.
I once tried installing a package that wanted to create files/dirs in a place that permissions wouldn't allow. I found this out by using the commandline to install it. Once I "relaxed" permissions of said directory, the package completed the install without the error it was giving.

Hope this makes sense,
Jon

whoops...when I asked for a screen capture, I meant to copy all the text that appears on your screen in the console into a file so you can post the data. That's the whole point of calling qinstall from command line, to get that information which hopefully gives more clues than the cute picture.

Sorry if I wasn't more clear. The first install with the other ipk got messed up because there wasn't enough internal memory, but you've solved that problem and the question now is what exactly is going wrong.

When you try again, please post the command and all output to help us debug better.

you also mentioned ownership issues. Does anyone know if the ownership issues of an ipk makes a difference?

thanks,

Here we are :

If I do qinstall oper... from command line I don t get any verbose, it installs and back to prompt wwith no comment.

So I did ipkg install ope...

and here is the verbose :
CODE
root@zaurus:/mnt/card/Paquets> ipkg install opera-sl-5x00-7.30.9965_arm.ipk
Unpacking opera-sl-5x00-7.30.9965...Done.
Configuring opera-sl-5x00-7.30.9965...tar: ./opt/QtPalmtop/bin/opera: input/output error -- No space left on device

tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors
Done.

I think that means it is crashing immediately. When qinstall works, I think I always get output of some sort on the commandline IIRC. I wonder if qinstall on 3.13 is not as good as on 2.38?

That means there is no room in internal memory to install! I would do both a "df" and a "free" next time right before and after your attempt to install.

If there really is enough space left on your Z, that message could be a serious indicator. If you never close your console, that could be taking up unbelievable amounts of space.

I trust the ipk as it's the one I used. I know when I get that message on my SD card that I've reached a bad spot and need to reformat, but don't know the status of internal memory on your Z.

Poke around in /tmp/ to see if there are files there that are space mongers. Also, do you use qtmail? It and any other apps can take up space if they hang...do a "ps ax" to see if stuff is getting held in abeyance and messing you up. You may want to post your "ps ax" here to ensure you don't mistakenly kill something that could mess up your Z.

The alternative is to install right after a soft reset...but still do a df before and after.

Are you sure the upgrade is worth this? What won't Opera 6.0 do for you?

We also need input from a 3.13 user. Maybe, as Jon_J noted, there are differences in the directory structure between the ROMs that could be causing problems. It may be adding duplicate stuff you already have in other directories and don't need.

But remember to empty the "install" stuff out of /tmp before you try again.

He has Opera 6.0 and for some reason wants to upgrade to 7.30. He's having trouble with upgrading.
