Instaling Appz On Sd Or Cf Card
« on: November 16, 2005, 09:45:29 am »
on internet i see link to document (in this moment the document isn`t recheable)  which describe how to use cf or sd card only as storage for appz. I would to install appz to sd/cf card.
i hear that appz are saved in /opt
so one solution can be that i create record in fstab for /opt which will be on cf/sd card...
it`s this good idea? or is any better solution of this problem?

i try in oz 3.5.3 in package manager set as target for appz a cf card, but package manager in every try hang up. So any idea how to solve it?


i read a document on opie.handhelds.org about moving /root to cf/sd card
can i apply it only for appz?

thx for help

You would have had better luck posting this in the OZ section of the forum and telling us what model you have, and if you are using Opie or GPE on it?  

Do you have your CF-card formatted with ext2? This is necessary for it to work properly.

Please note that the gui package manager has a memory leak that only allows you to install 1 or 2 apps at a time without hanging up... If this is the problem you should use ipkg with the command line in a terminal.
