no, i don't have a cxx0 so am not able to build and test it, nor do i have the time to do so.

however, as i mentioned before, you can use the custom script to apply all the patches and fixes (but be careful because all the patches and script assume Cxx00 machines) and you can even build your own initrd.bin to flash it if patching is successful and you want to share the working build with others.

i can help you with applying the updates/patches manually and creating the initrd.bin, but you do need to do a lot of testing and fiddling with your Z before you get something stable. And you need to be willing to do lots of NAND backups and restore during the process...

Thanks for the link and batch install script.

I reverted back to cacko as I was going on a trip. Will backup cacko and retry pdaXii13 when I get a stable internet connection.

btw, when I flash pdaXii13, I should resize NAND flash to 121 MB right?

Incidentally, pdaXrom is faster than pdaXqtrom ... but somewhat felt slower than cacko/sharp rom.

Hmmm ... so for Akita, how do we upgrade pdaXii13 base to full? Any links to packages so we can just do a single update instead of pulling down packages from feed individually? Thanks!

I got the C1000 and am testing out pdaXii13Akita as we speak.

Quote
To upgrade pdaXii13 base to full on C3100/C3200, make sure your microdrive is mounted.
if /media/fakeroot does not exist, create it manually. after you reboot, it should prompt you to format hdd2 and hdd3 followed by asking you to copy /etc and /home before X is started.

if it doesn't happen, exit X and run mkfs.init

if nothing happens, remove /etc/.hdd and run mkfs.init again.

if still nothing happens, check what cat /proc/deviceinfo/product says and if it is not reporting the right model, then modify mkfs.init and remove the device check line


btw, since I dont have a C1000 and dont have much free time atm either, I will not be updating pdaXii13 akita. If anyone wants to continue on enhancing it or fixing bugs, you can download the tarball that contains the contents of the initrd.bin file and a script to generate it. The tarball also contains mkfs.jffs2 for the Z so the initrd.bin can be build from a Z. Just add.remove/replace files under the nand directory and run the mkinitrd to generate a new initdrd.bin

you just do whatever you need to do as if you were installing beta3.

i just had beta3 installed using the default nand partitions for like 3 minutes just to rip the contents of initrd.bin

install pdaXii13 Akita just like you would if you were installing pdaXrom beta3
(except the numbers and order of the menu items are in a different order)

when you finish flashing the nand, just reboot and enjoy pdaXii13 base.

if you want to upgrade to pdaXii13 full, then after pdaXii13 base has been installed, run the updater/flash tool again and partition your MicroDrive and reboot your Z after that (of course you don't need to do this if you had already re-partitioned your microdrive before).

then run the updater/flash tool yet again and use it to extract the hdimage-full.tgz (of course you need to have copied the hdimage to your sd/cf card before you got into the updater/flash menu.

reboot your Z and say yes to everything it wants to do

I read on the tyrannozaurus forums that Meanie had updated pdaXii13 akita so I thought I'd give it another go. I can see the updater has a 'Install hdimage' option now but other that that I'm getting the same problems as last time I tried  

I don't suppose you need to reboot after flashing the NAND/ before installing the hdimage? I didn't think it would be necessary but maybe I'm wrong? I installed the hdimage straight after the NAND had been installed. The pdaXii13 Akita instructions are a bit vague on this. It also asks you to format the user partition (or something similar) after installing hdimage, I said yes to this even though I thought it had done this already when installing the NAND. Then I rebooted.

I still get the Module Dependencies FAILED error during boot

Although I installed the 5.2 hdimage with the akita installer successfully, its not booting into ROX and it obvious that the hdimage-full /usr isn't being used as none of the progs (mplayer etc.) are present.

So, last time I was in this state, Meanie said

"To upgrade pdaXii13 base to full on C3100/C3200, make sure your microdrive is mounted"...

Mounted where? Anywhere? What exact command should we use to mount it?

Also, how can I fix the Module Dependencies error?

Please write some more verbose, comprehensive instructions for installing pdaXii13 Akita full and then place them on its download page please Meanie.

Thanks again!

Meanoo:

I've just tried installing pdaXii13 akita on my c3100. It installed OK but I get a FAILED when it tries to load Module Dependencies on boot.

After I'd tried booting pdaXii13 I ran the latest pdaXii13 spitz installer and installed the 5.2b hdimage. After rebooting nothing seemed to have changed and it didn't ask me to copy /etc or /home from Microdrive to NAND as it says in your install instructions. What commands should I use to do this? Is there anything else I will need to do to complete my upgrade to pdaXii13 full?
[div align=\"right\"][a href=\"index.php?act=findpost&pid=150908\"][{POST_SNAPBACK}][/a][/div]

Hello Danboid,
it seems that you are the winner.
Until know I can run only PdaXii13 NAND version. Thats it. Before I have done a flash to the NAND version I have done a repartition to the recommended partition. The PdaXrom Beta 3 could mount all 3 partition. After I reflashed to PdaXii13 NAND version there was no mount of all 3 partition ofd the microdrive.
I removed also the .hdd file and afterwards I have done mkfs.init. It shows me that he has seen new partition, but at the end there was no mount to them.

Please give me some advice, how I can mount all 3 microdrive partition correctly.
Maybe a printout of your fstab will help or any other hidden file where the mounting might be.

As I understood the update to the full hdimage will work only if the microdrive partitions are mounted.

This is a cry for help. We need definetly a correct written documentation.

On the other hand. The Nand version is really fast if you run everything with a
NAND resize of 121 MB.

Have fun.

Romulus703x.

Some questions about this new 'Akita' version, Meanie (or others...) please...

I've now got the other pdaXii13 'Spitz' full version working quite nicely on my 3200.

1) Wondering if there's any reasons for me to switch over to this new 'Akita' version???

2) What is benefit of having it reside in NAND versus MicroDrive on 3200??

     - Is it speed-related? Faster boot time??
     - Easier to install because of flashing??
     - Less trouble if there's MicroDrive problems??
     - More room on MicroDrive??


3) Any downside to using this Akita version versus the other Spitz version?

4) Are both versions the same bug-fix wise??

5) Assuming that I decide to switch to the Akita version, what is the easiest way for me to do that since I already run Spitz version??

6) As I understand it, the Akita version is a 'base install' version. Once you install 'base' version, how do you upgrade to 'full version'??


Thanks for any and all help with these questions!

Just want to avoid/minimize hassles and screw-ups for me and others too....

 

Mark

I have created an experimental version of pdaXii13 which lives on the NAND instead of the MicroDrive so it can be flashed for C1000, C3100 and C3200.
In essence, I extracted the akita initrd.bin from pdaXrom beta3 and added my patches and scripts and recreated the initrd.bin.
This basically means, it is pdaXrom beta3 bug fixed with the same fixes as pdaXii13 on the C3000 so it is equivalent to pdaXii13 base.

To differentiate between the two versions, I will call the orginal pdaXii13 for the C3000 which installs to the MicroDrive pdaXii13 Spitz
This new version for the C1000 which installs to the NAND will be called pdaXii13 Akita

being a self proclaimed geek, you should be able to figure it out by yourself or demote yourself to mere user

i will only work on the C3000 version of pdaXii13 since all my work is done natively on my C3000. i do not have a cross dev environment and cannot afford to have downtime since I am away from home most the time.

i already done the best i can by building the initial framework that allows akita and similar models (3100/3200) to flash pdaXii13, but i cannot test it nor can i continue to work on it further. someone else needs to pick up the work and fix the bugs for the akita family(c1000/c3100/c3200).

- find out why depmod is complaining during boot and fix it

- have a look at rc.rofilesys and fix the mounting issues (if any) -- the first partition on the microdrive (/dev/hda1 or /dev/hdc1) needs to be mounted to /media/fakeroot

everything *should* fall into place after that. if not, fix it

there are no step by step install instructions because it is an experimental build which has not been tested yet. the akita edition is not a fully tested and working release. its purpose is for people who want an akita build to have something to start from so they don't have to start from scratch. it is not my intend to build a fully working akita version of pdaXii13. this is left for others to do that are interested in getting pdaXii13 to work on akita... i can help out a bit, but someone needs to do the work to get it fully working and tested..., otherwise, i will just change the website back to its original wording which was "pdaXii13 is for C3000 only and will not work on any other similar Zaurus model"

Geek != developer, although I suppose to be a true geek you should at least know how to program. I have dabbled in C, Pascal and BASIC in the past but can't say I've ever coded anything of worth ('cept the little scriptish thing that was konqkonv - a DVD video conversion tool for Konqueror) however I could never honestly say "I'm a programmer" nor would I want to be- it truly bores me to tears and besides girls are much more interested in the fact that I'm a good drummer  

I really don't want to be known as a geek either as they're widely regarded as quite sad people but I had a pretty major operation just before xmas which has hampered my mobility and I've been unable to work so I've had LOTS of time to mess with the Z and spend WAAAY too much time posting and reading on OESF. This has led to my delusions of geekery which I really must knock on the head asap!

Me, I'm a 'tech enthusiast'- is that OK?  

Anyway, after quitting X and doing

mount /dev/hda1 /media/fakeroot
mkfs.init

It DOES at least appear to copy over a couple of partitions but after a reboot I end up with pdaXii13 akita non-full but with much more errors at boot time and after doing this I am unable to modify any files such as /etc/rc.d/rc.rofilesys as I just get 'No space left on device' errors. Maybe the trick is to edit that file BEFORE running mkfs.init? Mr. Tech Enthusiast feels out of his depth now and decides to go running back to the hackish c3000 install method he used before!  

Is there anyone out there who is willing and able to take over from where Meanie has left off with pdaXii13 on the c3100/c3200?

Thanks for revealing the mysterious mount command and for getting us this far Meanie!
