Pdaxrom Not Loading Sd Or Cf
« on: May 16, 2006, 10:10:34 pm »
Interesting, I was just sitting there trying to make zpsx to work. Then I rebooted the Zaurus when it came on neither the CF or SD started. I went to aterm typed in reboot. It is stuck on line "INIT: no more processes left in tis runlevel"   and that's it! It's just stuck there. I tried taking out battery, leaving zaurus dry for a few minutes. Turned on, same thing. Tested SD card in sd reader, reads it fine. CF card is a Symbol wifi card.
Anyone know what happened:(? Maybe there is a way to manually make it run?      

Thanks in advance!  

-My poor Z

---Update: Also when it boots after I manually power off it says: "Inode #6581 was a directory with children - removing these too..." Children? Shoud I be worried?
----Update: There is like 10 lines of these with different Inode numbers.
----Update: No the light on the Symbol card doesn't light up on boot, or when in startx.
----Update: Found that in /dev/ there is no mmcd????? This isn't right! right?

Do you have a console? Try checking the filesystems on the cards - e.g. e2fsck if ext2 formatted.

I can't even access the card. In /dev/ the mmcd is not there!
Can't access the CF either!  Maybe it corupted/deleted itself?

I think these are all run by pcmcia - what is the output of 'dmesg'? Maybe the driver failed to load or one of the startup files is missing/corrupted so it isn't being loaded?

Karlos, I decided to reinstall to beta 3.
Thanks for your help. But I just thought re-installing would be quicker, since I have most apps already on my sd cards which I want to install.

Thanks again for offering your help. I really appreciate it.
