Zisofs Pdaxii13 5.4.8
« on: August 10, 2007, 06:08:49 am »
I had been able (through the installation of what, I don't know--maybe kde??) on my previous 5.4.7 system to run mkzftree. My Z no longer knows that command, afer a clean install of 5.4.8.   On checking around, I found that I couldn't find either the isofs modules or any zisofs tools packaged for the Z on 2.4.20.

suggestions?

Well--I just dl'd and compiled zisofs-tools. took seconds   all is well, especially in that it depended on stuff I had already installed in my quest to mkzfstree.

incidentally, while screwing around with my new 5.4.8 setup, I installed all of the modukes from the "sound" thread (didn't know if they were already in) and installed all of kkakazov's libraries. all seems to be running smooothly.

I didn't. I suppose I should. At the moment, my Z is running tidy on custom version of the gutenberg librabry (all texts in .txt in English) preparatory to making a 22000 book ziso . It is taking a loooong time (the original iso was 10.5 gigs--I have my Z hooked up to a 320G usb hd to do this, and I'm beginning to suspect I should not have done the thing with a single index page). So, [a href=\"http://freshmeat.net/projects/zisofs-tools/]here[/url] is the link to the sources. The whole thing is small and compiles with no special tweaks in a matter of seconds.  I'll shoot for the .ipk when my Z is available   (of course, I'm playing with zipedia, too)

--of course, this is why I was hoping someone with a 2.95 cross complier set up would compile a newer (3.0-3.1.2) squashfs module -it allows tighter compression and smaller files than zisofs. I guess I'll get around to it, but I haven't done any module building since playing with Guylhem Rom on my 6k

I just dowloaded the zisofs-tools-1.0.8.tar.gz file. After that
I want to unpack it on the zaurus with:

tar xvf zisofs-tools-1.0.8.tar.gz

but  I get the following error message:

Cannot change ownership to uid1026,gid 1026: Operation not permitted

Hmm, what goes wrong???

Ok, I should google before I ask.

This opperation can't be done on vfat! Copy the files to ext3 on zaurus it works fine.

Next problem:  ./configure failed because no gcc found :-(

adf,

I compiled it succesfull and now I want to create a ipk for later installations but I dont' know how to do it. I didt this never before!

Could you please write down the different steps you will need for creating a ipk of the zisofs-tools!  Please !!!

This would be very helpful for me to compile more apps and create new ipk  :-)

Regards

Glad to hear this is moving along!  My Z is still running tidy on an extracted gutenberg iso....

Capn_Fish,

thanks for helping me! I will try to create a ipk from the zisofs-tools on the side
http://freshmeat.net/projects/zisofs-tools/ because compiling and running the apps works fine on my zaurus.


Following the instructions the first thing is to check whether the following command returns anything:

grep DESTDIR Makefile

I got nothing back so I suppose that the variable DESTDIR isn't set. Is this normal?

Further you write ....... "If the above step worked (returned stuff) type this command:

make DESTDIR=/temp-place-to-install-stuff/appname/Data/ install

Should I execute this command too although DESTDIR isn't set?




Thanks
climber

As far as I know, it's not supposed to work if
Code: [Select]
grep DESTDIR Makefilereturned nothing, but in some cases I have had it work.

There are a couple things you could do if it doesn't work. You could set an odd prefix when building the stuff (like /usr/local/MYINSTALL), install it, copy the tree to the plce where you are building your ipk, move the data from /usr/local/MYINSTALL to /usr, then edit the packageconfig file (packagename.pc, I believe) and change the prefix there. It should work then.

I asked the same question a while back, and Meanie had some good info. Look for a thread with "destdir" in the name, and you should find it.

Hope that helps.
