Angstrom & OpenZaurus / Installing ipks
« on: December 07, 2003, 09:52:58 pm »
I\'ve now tried it from the command line as well. Maybe a bug in OZ 3.3.5

I was thinking it might have been due to using an 860, but since you\'ve got the same problem on your 760 it must be generic.

I\'ve tried chmod\'ing the status file in question and also su\'ing first but the problem persists.  Mind you, the error points to a problem recording status which shouldn\'t have affected the install.  I wonder if doing a manual install would work.  Unfortunately, I\'m too new to this world to know how to take the ipk apart and manually do it.

I\'ve installed a bunch of stuff using the Settings-]Packages app and stuff seems to install somewhat.  I get an error though during install

\"file_move: ERROR: failed to rename /usr/lib/ipkg/status.tmp to /usr/lib/ipkg/status.  No such file or directory\"

I look in the directory and there is no status.tmp but there is a status file.  Afterwards there is an icon for the app installed, but when I try to run it, it just puts a picture in the bottom status bar and then that disappears. So it looks like the app tries to launch but then fails.  This has happened with about a dozen apps i\'ve tried to install (mostly games from the OZ site)

Angstrom & OpenZaurus / OZ 3.3.5 on 860 - problem - shuts itself off

Hey, cool - it works now.  I wonder what i\'m doing to mess things up.  I\'ll try only shutting down from the menu item for a while to see if that helps.

Typically I just press the on/off button on the side of the Zaurus.  Should I be using the \"shutdown\" on the menu?

I installed OZ 3.3.5 twice today.  It seems fine after flashing and works OK for a while.  Then after being off for a bit, it won\'t boot properly.  It boots to the main PIM screen but then shuts itself off after a half second.

Any ideas?  Should I be logging out before shutting off or anything?

General Discussion / What the heck is going on?

I think the ZUG format etc are all great.  Being a Zaurus newbie and considering the amount of help I\'ve had over the past couple of days, I\'d say keep everything the way it is.

So the site hoster made a mistake, its a drag but what\'re ya gonna do.  Stuff happens.

Here I am.  My new zaurus is in transit.  I haven\'t even laid a hand on it yet, and Sharp is pulling the plug.

 :cry:

which zaurus did you purchase?

I\'m getting an 860.  Its in the country (Canada) at customs so I should have it tomorrow or Friday.

P.S.  Even without Sharp support - I\'m sure I\'ll still enjoy it.  As long as I can get the development tools, I\'ll be able to do everything I want with it.
