so I managed to install the pdaXii13 and I found it to be pretty comfortable system. However, there are few issues I have which obviously have to do with me using the device in a wrong way:
- after fresh install df -h shows zero free space on /. However it is possible to move around and edit data in e.g. /etc/. The problem is, that I do not really know how much space I still have free.
- after a while (e.g. I am not installing things wildely!) I managed to finish the device already 3 times. It always ends up with "Unable to ... no space left on device". And that's it then. Nothing can be deleted with rm, nor can I mount devices (during reboot something fails and all mounts are over) to possibly fix stuff (copy a fresh new image from USB stick to SD card). Only a fresh reinstall helps.
Now all this points to some misunderstanding on my side. Questions/Issues:
1.- I have system installed in NAND (where else, right? I have C1000...). But I shouldn't fiddle too much with / partition. So what should I do instead? How much can I put additionally to / so that I won't brake it? Again, df shows complete non-sense.
2.- Probably I should install all the apps to SD card. On Meanie's pages I read that I should have then the SD card formatted in some strange way (two partitions etc.) It is not clear to me how to go on from this point. How will I ensure that nothing goes wrong on the main partition while using the device? If I install something to /mnt/card will it really end up there, or will some packages mess with /?
3.- Anything else what I should know about?
It boils down to a simple question: HOW TO USE pdaXii13 ON AKITA MACHINE? WHAT IS THE STANDARD MODUS OPERANDI?
Thanks for comments.
Finally a small bug report to Meanie:
- wifi-radar in the Sally distro does not work out of the box because of missing python-threading package. It would be nice if that one was included directly in the image... BTW, it is also missing in your custom feed, si had to download it from elsewhere and manually add to the already downloaded feed you provide.
