Pdaxii13 On The Sl-c3200

Ling,

1) No, 2 times....A and C....

2) Here's my partition table:

Device
/dev/hda1           1       4264       2149055+  83   Linux
/dev/hda2      4265       4761        250488     82   Linux Swap / Solaris
/dev/hda3      4762      11905      3600576      C   W95 FAT32 (LBA)

3) Can always change using fdisk, right??

4) You're not...

 


Or you can also try Meanie's latest pdaXii13 NAND approach here:

Mark,

[Snip]

1)  Did you actually install the kernel and bootloader a total of three (3) times? It looks like it (2A, C, and 3).

2) What did the default partitioning scheme give you?

[Snip]

3)  I am actually wondering if I need any FAT as most of my boxes (the one I am typing on now) are linux.

4) Don't mean to be a pest and appreciate your feedback.

Hi Romulus,

Well, not that much too write....I just followed the 4 steps that Meanie instructed in post #27 in this thread:


1. flash pdaXrom beta3 (don't worry about the hdd for now)

2. flash pdaXii13 using the older updater.sh from http://www.tyrannozaurus.com/feed/pdaXii13/files/updater.sh

3. rerun the option to flash kernel and initrd

4. reboot


That's it! Actually it's really quite simple...(assuming that you've had some experience flashing a Zaurus before, if not, still OK, it's not that hard....)

Just used a CF with the pdaXrom B3 on it at the root level to do Step 1 and had put the other files for pdaXii13 in a folder on the CF card.

Then for Step 2, I just moved the pdaXrom B3 files into a folder and moved the pdaXii13 files (http://www.tyrannozaurus.com/feed/pdaXii13/tmp/ except for getting 'updater.sh' which I got from other link shown above) up to the root level of the card and did Step 2, which includes a few other steps....

A. Choose 'Option 3' to "Install kernel and bootloader".

B. Choose 'Option 4' to "Extract 'hdimage.tgz' (either 'base' or 'full', depending upon which one you downloaded and put on your card...I installed the 'full' version).

C. Choose 'Option 3' to "Install kernel and bootloader" again.

D. Choose 'Option 6' to reboot. It will take a few minutes for this first bootup...so be patient...eventually if all is OK, you'll see the display calibration screen. Do that and then the display will come back in a 'grayish looking dot pattern' with a little 'X' in the middle, then that will disappear and then the pdaXii13 desktop screen should show up.

[For more info, see 'Installation' section of Meanie's "Zaurus SL-C3000 - customising pdaXrom" document at"

http://www.users.on.net/~hluc/myZaurus/pdaxii13.html

This section has instructions as to how to flash your Zaurus and what order to do the steps of upgrading to pdaXii13.]


That's it!

 


ArchiMark .. Thanks for the procedure that you used.. however, I ran into some difficulty.

Originally, I started with Cacko and a factory configured hard drive.

1) Installed Beta 3 per the instructions given on the pdaXrom website
2) flashed NAND with pdaxii13
3) repartitioned with the recommended partition configuration
4) extract hd-full.tgz
5) reflashed nand with pdaxii13

I get a lockup at the following location on boot:
EXT3-fs: Unrecognized mount option quiet
 hda: hda1 hda2 hda3
 hda: hda1 hda2 hda3
 hda: hda1 hda2 hda3
 hda: hda1 hda2 hda3
kjournald starting. Commit interval 5 seconds
EXT3 FS 2.4-0.9.19, 19 August 2002 on ide(3,1), internal journal
EXT3-fs: mounted filesystem with ordered data mode.
Check Battery!!!!! <--- not exact message on this line but something to that effect

If I repartition with the recommended format.. wiping out the hd-full.tgz, the unit boots up without a problem.

I'm not sure why this is..  Any help is appreciated

Rick

Hi Rick

Its not a lock up at that point- your MD light was still flashing right? You just need to wait and wait and wait- first boot takes about 15 minutes or so to pass that point. Subsequent boots stalll there for about 5m

See my c3100 install guide (which I need to update to reflect bugs in 5.2 final)

Thanks.. that was exactly what was happening.  It's looking great.. any tips on movie playback for this distro and after some added packages.. it'll be great.
Thanks  

Rick
