I was using special kernel v14a (currently using v15) from http://tetsu.homelinux.org/zaurus/kernel/
with a C760.
The package installed without error but when I rebooted it crashed, rebooted hung again at the gui. Was able to ssh into the machine and remove the package but qtopia would not start again even after reboot.
When I get some time to tinker I'll try again and take note of the error messages
That is really unexpected.
We do not touch the Qtopia file system or any of the standard libraries. What we do is to add a /home/myPDA file hierarchy and add the launcher Application to /home/QtPalmtop/bin.
The launch procedure is a shell script (/home/QtPalmtop/bin/myPDA.sh) which does the following:
1. telinit 2 to shutdown Qtopia
2. launch the Xserver (from x11zaurus)
3. launch daemons zapmd, ztsd (for the X11 touch screen), gdomap (for distributed objects)
4. launch the window manager
5. launch initial applications
6. sit there and wait for the window manager to quit
7. telinit 5 to reboot Qtopia
So I have no idea yet why the flash image could be touched. A potential source for a system crash migh come from simply using the zapmd, ztsd and x11zaurus binaries for which we have no source codes. They might do harmful things to the kernel we don't know.
One more thought: did you install to a memory card or to internal memory?
If you want to look into log files, the launch script and all applications write their stdout/stderr to /home/myPDA/Library/Logs/Console/theuser/console.log
