For some reason I got the same problem.
Just flash the kernel from yonggun: http://yonggun.tistory.com/72 (rename to zImage without .bin)
and flash with an updater.sh which just flashes the kernel: http://support.ezaurus.com/developer/sourc...pdater.sh.c3200
(this is for sl-c3200)

Hope this helps.

Thanks, I will try to flash kernel first.
Update: Kernel flashed, extracting root. I have some doubts ...
Ok, Root extracted but I don't see other hdd partition. Do I have to add them manually to fstab?
Where should I unpack modules? To root? Is rootfs on the internal hdd?

First off, thanks to 2or0 for a great tarball.  It seems like a great system.

I was just hoping you could help me with an issue I have.  The system recognizes hardware such as usb ethernet and cf cards, but does not attach them in /dev.  
For example, when I insert (or have it in during boot) my 16gb cf card, dmesg shows: pccard: blah blah
but no /dev/hda1 is created.  I also get nothing with my usb ethernet even though dm9601 is loaded, and the hardware is recognized.

I would assume this is related to a couple of errors that occur during bootup:
i2c: error: exhausted retries
i2c: msg_num: 0 msg_idx -2000 msg_ptr: 0
etc...

and also hald will not load until I manually start dbus


If you have an idea what is wrong, please let me know.

PS - I can elaborate on what I did etc if needed.

Hi, I found this Andromeda Debian very excellent!
However I stucked with usb networking.

My Z has a configured usb0 interface, but my Debian laptop not.
How can I make it to have the connection?

I've tried g_ether, cdc_*, usbnet, zaurus modules so far.

laptop#: modprobe g_ether host_addr=00:dc:c8:f7:75:05 dev_addr=7e:44:7c:4f:a0:6c
FATAL: Error inserting g_ether (/lib/modules/2.6.24.2v2/kernel/drivers/usb/gadget/g_ether.ko): No such device

PS. Couldn't figure Sakura terminal behavior for font size inc/decrease. Is it a keymap issue or...?

@Raul: there is none included by default... there might be something in debian feed, but you need network working first  
So you have to edit /etc/network/interfaces. There is an example for a wifi connection on eth0 in there, I had to write a similar one for eth1 and then ifup eth1. (Dmesg tells you which name your card has been given.)


@Osage: things to check:
- are the modules present and did you do depmod -a ?
- there is a command to start usb networking, something like usb_gadget start (I can't remember, maybe gadget-usb start ??)

A small update;

For the ethernet problem: modprobe ohci_hcd fixed it.  It is now in /etc/modules

For the CF card:   I tried another CF card (256mb) and it worked fine.  My 16gb worked great before.  Is there anything that has changed between this rootfs and zdevils that would cause this?  I am using the same kernel as before.

EDIT:
CF Card problem fixed by installing PCMCIAUtils.  Noticed that neither this or pcmcia-cs were installed.

Thanks,
Canguy

Wow, this looks great!

One question - I've had problems with other Debian installs whereby my Zaurus 3100 would keep turning on (un-suspending) in my pocket, even though I had the lid shut, and draining the battery before I knew it.  Would your distro happen to handle this issue, say in a similiar fashion to Cacko? (whereby when the lid is shut the Zaurus suspends, and can't be un-suspended until the lid is open no matter how many times or how long the power button is hit)

Thanks - again, amazing work!
Hugh

Sorry, I don't get it. When I'm trying to install this (from a SD card), en choose to install in on hda1 (I have 2 partitions, 5.5 gig / 0.5 gig), it says it can't find hdc. I read that this was some kind of mistake when u compiled it? Is there a workaround?


Btw I can host your files on a 100mbit server, if you like..

You have to put cf card (memory) into cf slot, then it will work.

@Shem:
Or you can untar manually the files where u want them and use an updater.sh to only flash the kernel. I did it that way.
