General Discussion / Installing to CF or SD?
« on: September 24, 2004, 03:38:29 pm »
Okay I've tried this with a couple of packages and keep getting the following error:

# ipgk install -d sd ice_bloxx_1.0.0_arm.ipk
postinst script returned status 2
ERROR: fbvncserver.postinst returned 2

I received the same error when trying to install zsafe.

My sd card is formatted as VFAT. Is that a problem. I did read somewhere about how you used to have the cars formatted ext2 or ext3 because of the symlinks it creates. But I thought that was fixed in later ROMs?

Thanks for your help.

I'm running OZ 3.3.5 and I read somewhere that you can install apps on the CF or SD cards but I can't seem to figure out what to do. Are there any How-tos on how to do this?

General Discussion / Can't mount CF or SD cards

Got it working.

Ended up reinstalling the OpenZaurus ROM. Now everything appears to be working fine.

Just purchased a used SL-5000D. Came with the 16MB CF and a 64MB SD card.

When I do a 'mount' it doesn't show the cards.

If I do a 'mount /dev/cf' it says 'mount: /dev/hda1: unknown device'

I also get the same sort of error with 'mount /mnt/card'

The unit is using OpenZaurus 3.3.5.

Also if I manually remove the CF card it does pop up "Ejected: ATA/IDE Fixed Disk" and it does detect the card when its reinserted.

I'm a total Zaurus newbie here. I'm sure I'm missing something.

Any suggestions?

I've also tried doing a mkfs.msod /dev/hda1 and it says there's 'No such device or address'.

Any help you could give would be greatly appreciated.

PS I also looked into the unit and I don't see any bent pins, etc.
