Accessories / Formatting a 1GB SD card
« on: July 30, 2004, 04:39:54 pm »
I partitionned the card with fdisk on my PowerBook and can use it from my PowerBook (I no longer get the errors in the log file). But I can no longer mount it on my Zaurus. I tried both /dev/mmcda2 (as mmcda1 is the partition map) /dev/mmcda1 (in case the Zaurus does a translation), but I get:

mount: Mounting /dev/mmcda2 on /mnt/card failed: Invalid argument

This may be because the Debian/ppc fdisk created an Apple partition map (strange...). Where can I get fdisk for the Zaurus to try that instead? The link on http://www.killefiz.de/zaurus/showdetail.php?app=205 is no longer valid.

Also note that I've just tried the card (vfat formatted) on my PowerBook via a PCMCIA-SD adapter, and I have no problem with it.
Well, in fact, I had lots of errors reported in my kern.log file (on the PowerBook):

Code: [Select]

with several reset per second... Could this be the same errors as in my Zaurus, except that the Zaurus linux kernel doesn't try to go round them?

When the partition of a device changes you usually have to reload the module for the device to recognize the changes.
Does this mean that I need to reboot?

Also note that I've just tried the card (vfat formatted) on my PowerBook via a PCMCIA-SD adapter, and I have no problem with it. So, it seems that the partitioning is correct after all and there are some compatibility problems with the Zaurus.

After running fsck.ext2 (well, I don't know if this is the cause), I managed to reformat the partition to vfat. But anyway, I also got I/O errors.

I did some tests in the train: I noticed that I could create files and read them, but a "ls" showed nothing... until I unmounted and remounted the SD card. The card was sometimes automatically remounted as read-only (ro). With fsck.vfat (IIRC), I also had an error concerning the partitions.

Now I'm back home, and I no longer noticed the above problems, but during a recursive (remote) copy to the SD card, it was remounted as read-only.

I've just had a 1GB ATP SD card, which I reformatted to ext2, but I quickly had I/O errors. I'd like to reformat it to vfat to test it, but I get the following error:

Code: [Select]
# mkfs.vfat /dev/mmcda1
mkfs.vfat 2.8 (28 Feb 2001)
mkfs.vfat: Attempting to create a too large file system

I can't use the -F 32 option either (error mkfs.vfat: unable to allocate space for FAT image in memory).

Any idea?

Software / Scrolling problem with Opera after using Kino2

I've noticed that the problem disappears after the screen saver activates or after suspending the Z.

In fact, there are similar scrolling problems with other applications, like Netfront and Zeditor (but not with Terminal and Qkonsole).

Software / Scrolling problem with Opera after using Kino2
« on: July 27, 2004, 07:59:10 pm »
After using Kino2, scrolling no longer works correctly in Opera 7.30, in particular the scrolling line by line (page by page is better): some rectangular parts of the screen are not redrawn. Quitting and restarting Opera has no effect; it seems that I need to reboot!

Does anyone have any information about this problem and if it can be solved?

Note: I have a Zaurus SL-C860 with the original ROM (1.40 JP).

TIA,

Vincent Lefèvre.
