so far i've tried to make it run in the MD. However, if this can be installed in NAND instead of using the MD as the based system (say like pdaX), the performance should be much better since the loading speed is quite slow - for heavy disk activities are involved on loading from MD).

Please advise whether there is a guideline for that turns to reality. Thx.

There is also another problem on the /dev/shm as well.
[initscripts: BOOT FAILURE: can't fsck /dev/shm/root because /dev/shm is mounted nodev]

However, I have searched the Debian bug fixed site and found out the following work-around:-

attached is my modified /etc/init.d/ aligned to the suggestions raised in that URL

i have tried this using my 3100, but i found the following traps

a/ the boot menu options are different: it has no (Internal Flash Experiment) option, only the CF option is displayed (the internal CF)

b/ when i choose this option the kernel was trapped by saying "Warning: unable to open an initial console".

it seems like there should be a step on flashing the Internal installation on the Zubuntu. Please advise for any extra steps involved. Thz.

Thanks for ZDevil screen caps.

I have no wifi / LAN card that can connect to internet. therefore the "failed to load codename message" cannot be evicted in the installation process normally.

I have tried the following command in the CONSOLE (in the very late menu options )

Code: [Select]
debootstrap --arch arm etch target/ cdrom/
with the SD card having extracted the contents of the '/dists' inside the debian.iso and still no luck getting into the package selection screen (saying cannot find 'cdrom/dists/Release' file, and df gives the cdrom/ dir is mounted to SD card already). Has anyone got any workaround to get in that screen ?

I have tried tons of times and cannot get thru the "Failed to determine the codename for release" message.... even tried the workaround on the suggested 'choose-mirror' installer module add-on....

i have no wifi / LAN card installed right now and is there any work around to mount the debootstrap on the dists/etch/.../Release on the faked cdrom? since after browsing several debian help in the web, I think the problem is dealing with that.

Zaurus - pdaXrom / New Pdaxrom Release R197
« on: April 19, 2007, 10:24:57 pm »

My first check....

/etc/sysconfig/x11mousebutts still needs to reconfigure as follows in order to use "Fn" key as the right mouse button (i.e. no changes starting from beta4....  )

hold_right_button 0
right_button 69
middle_button 50
power_button 117

for screen rotate issue, I haven't got that problem in my sl-c3100

re: [200-21] case, just hold the [Fn] button in console, and press 'A' key, you can get the 'a'  character displayed....

this is due to the keymap for your machine isn't loaded....

would you please make it available at your feed so that i can try that ?....

thanks ~!

Quote,,, are also available as ipk in the pdaXrom feed... is also available in the pdaXrom feed.
python-compile again is in the pdaXrom feed and can be used to compile .pyc files
[div align=\"right\"][a href=\"index.php?act=findpost&pid=157777\"][{POST_SNAPBACK}][/a][/div]

would you pls kindly tell me the corresponding ipks? since I have googled a lot on the .py s and cannot locate them to their packaged ipks....

thanks in advance!

Zaurus - pdaXrom / Zope In Pdaxrom
« on: March 31, 2007, 08:44:10 am »
Owing to my one of the recent project requirements, I need to investigate a system called Zope (and its ZODB which is a OO database). It is easily installed in XP environment, but surprisingly, I found that the zaurus support to this is quite less..... Therefore, that triggers me to try to install this Zope inside my lovely pdaxrom....

All in all, the experiment is in vain (how come my recent trials are all in vain?....   ), but I would like to share my experiences during the trials, and hope (maybe) any interested parties to play around this stuff on their spare time.

1/ Since the python in pdaxrom is 2.4.1, which is quite out-dated in view of Zope current environment, we need to grab the previous versions of zope source code to compile - the one i chose is zope-2.9.1.tar.gz. During the compilation process, I stopped at a step which reports the python header is not fully satisfied, and using some others experiments certifying the header is really not fully satisfied. Therefore I gave up that direct compilation approach.

2/ searching thru google i found that there is a version called something related to zope-2.5.1-python_2.1 to zaurus environment. that means previously zaurus should support this zope server; and surprisingly, debian also support zope server as well! and found a package called zope_2.5.1-1woody1_arm.deb for arm processor debian....

3/ based on these observations, I tried to convert that deb to ipk. This is easy to be done by a simple script called When I really tried this converted ipk installation (my installation destination path is in /mnt/ide, which is not in the NAND area), I have encountered the following missing python scripts (and create a directory called /usr/lib/python2.1 linked to /usr/lib/python2.4): -

 a.,,, - all can be easily obtained the python script code from the internet. However, for, add a '-q' option do exactly the same as '-f' option (to fool the compiler seems the debian python has another option -q which is for quiet mode, but i don't know how to make it, therefore I used -f as the substitute. (line 103 added for description, line 112 added for force endorsement)

 b. This is obsolete (desperated in python term) in python 2.4.1 but still exists in python 2.1. on searching the web, you should be able to find the declaring as 'desperated' script, and apply it .... however, since there is a DOS version of, you need to find that one for bullet-proofing. I adopt the one generated by h2py from /usr/include/sys/fcntl.h and put it in /usr/lib/python2.4 directory (together with

 c. when you do that, you need to compile those .py files to .pyc, search google on related topic for python compilation to .pyc [should be something like
  import py_compile

 d. since the installation trials may involve the missing directory in /usr/lib/zope, you need to symbolic link the /usr/lib/zope to /mnt/ide/usr/lib/zope between installation failures so that you can pass the installation trials.

after you have done the following remedial actions, you should be able to install the converted ipk successfully.

4/ starting the zope server is simple : zope-z2 -w80 (port 80 for web, default is 9673, as seen in the help page when you carries -h parameter), then you should see your pdaxrom CPU time is nearly 100% !  And some warning messages shown up repeatedly in the terminal screen..... Therefore, I tried using telnet 80 port as a trial, can still cannot catch the port authentication.... therefore, I certified although the server is up and running in pdaxrom, the server processes cannot be utilized in the appropriate manner....

Hope these sharings can ignites some zope users investigations to Zaurus, and can be able to make the zope server be used in Zaurus. I really don't mind if anyone can share me a full set of python 2.4.1 headers in pdaxrom  so that I can compile the zope server directly on board, in order to alleviate such a tedious repeated trials....  

Sharp ROMs / Qtopia 2.1.2 In Sl-c3100 (wanna Work In Sl-c3100)
« on: March 31, 2007, 07:51:42 am »
i haven't mentioned that when I hexedit the initrd.bin (inside the c3000 archive), I found that the header is in fact OZ!3.1 rc2, which is very astonished to me: since even for the pdaXrom (for example, beta1), the initrd.bin header is in fact SHARP!1.20

therefore, when i tried to 'fix' the header as SHARP something, there is a errorno beforet the kernel panic: that means, the initrd.bin flashed is even cannot recognised in that sense.

In view of this, this 'Qtopia' is a in fact a derivative from OZ rather than SHARP rom....

further support / development from other parties to that of coz is obscure, but at least i hope this can be a 'better' Qtopia from that of 1.x.x originated from sharp ....
