Hey you crazy kids,
I've upgraded my SL-5500's OS from OZ 3.3.5 to 3.5.2. It seems to work very well, I even managed to mount samba shares which I couldn't do before.
However, it keeps crashing, and sometimes when I restart it by flicking the battery switch, it cannot create cache files, links or anything because the internal storage is suddenly full. This makes no sense as I install everything to sd. This has happened a few times now and the only thing that solves it is reflashing, pressing the reset button makes no difference. Last time it crashed I was trying to make mplayer use the compat libs, because it didn't play mp3's properly.
Has anyone else had this problem with 3.5.2?

If your SD card hasn't been mounted correctly, although it looks like you've installed to SD, it will in fact go to root.
That said, I don't think the 5500 ROM has much space left over so it may have just filled up with files. What have you been running? Would the programs have produced anything to fill up the space?

I'm using the 58-6 zImage, so that doesn't leave it much space I suppose. When I first turn it on after flashing it says there is 1488KB free on root. I check this after I install any packages, it always stays the same. Its just when OZ crashes that its filled up. I guess it creates temp files that it then can't delete when it crashes. Can't find them though.
