I am trying to install EABI on my c860, but the untar of the root-fs to ext2 formatted 2GB SD fails with "tar: decompression failed" and "tar: Short header" I have re-downloaded and done the checksum. Am I missing something?

Sorry this is such a cosmetic post, but I am trying to customize the look and feel of my desktop/panel. I am running pdaXii13 with openbox/rox on my c860.

Anyway, I have edited some of the application icons in the pixmaps folder, recreating 48x48 pixel png files with an alpha transparency. They appear in rox just fine, and if I drag them to the desktop there they are in all their glory. (Got to admit to just revamping some from OSX Tiger, but maybe I'll get creative when I've got it to work.) But... In the panel or panel-menu they just apear as scrambled, interlaced fuzz. I wondered if there needed to be smaller versions, but rox is able to display reduced size versions on the fly with no problem.

Perhaps I need to output the png differently - I am using Fireworks - but I am stumped.

PS. Recommend any icon editors?

My SL860 freezes when I take out either a card or wifi card from the cf slot. Complete lock-up. I am running beta2 with xfce4.
If it is a bug with beta2, can anyone suggest a workaround? I am almost resigned to shutting down whenever I want to swap out the CF. I am using the matchbox card applet by the way. Happy to use terminal if there is a code or script that will get me past this.

Count me as a newbie when answering this query. I would like to know how I preserve my settings, documents, and if possible my installed applications when installing a new ROM.

I would like to use my Z more, but what holds me back is the fact that unless I have my documents on a card, I lose everything when I update the ROM. I would like to be able to preserve my whole environment as far as possible. I can't afford business critical documents to be inaccessible while I get my Z back to where it was before I reflashed.

Thanks for any help!

I hope this isn't something to do with the screen flickering mentioned in pinned thread, or I wouldn't have started this thread. My problem is just that on wake-up any open applications crash while they flash on and off the screen. Dillo seems to survive, but big apps like Firefox crash, or at best get backgrounded.

I am presently running the beta but might go back to an earlier rc if no one can help. I am not convinced it is the beta though, as I saw it happen with rc12 before I reflashed.
