It's a binary (executable file)... copy or symlink to /bin or /usr/bin

I got it copied to the CF card but when I try and copy to internal, I get a message "unable to open: read-only file system."

What are you using to copy? Try the following from the command line:

cp /mnt/cf/pico pico

If your Zaurus is online, the simplest is probably just to try:

wget http://www.users.on.net/~hluc/myZaurus/custom/pico

Don't use
cp /mnt/card/pico /bin
This is trying to replace the directory /bin by the file pico, good thing the Zaurus is not letting you do this. maybe you can try
cp /mnt/card/pico /bin/pico
or
cp /mnt/card/pico /usr/bin/pico

But if you copied it to your home directory, using the first command I suggested you can run by typing
./pico

I get a message "unable to open: read-only file system."
This message is clearly telling you that you can't write in this read-only file system of your ROM.

If you tell us what model Zaurus and what ROM your using perhaps someone here can help you?

I just got an SL-5600. It has ROM v 1.32

I am having a hell of a time trying to get this thing setup. I am used to using various versions of RH. Some things are the same, some are different.

Ok... so iirc there's a /home/root/usr/bin (if not tell me!)
So with terminal (and pico on your CF-card) you would do:
Code: [Select]
cd /mnt/cf
su
cp pico /home/root/usr/bin
cd
mount / -o rw,remount
ln -s /home/root/usr/bin/pico /usr/bin/pico
mount / -o ro,remount
exit
Then when you use pico do:
su
pico /whatever/file

Let us know if this works for you?
