Hi

I have a Zaurus SL-C3200 with default install and i am getting permission denied when trying to copy file from cf  card internal drive here /opt/QtPalmtop/bin/frodo
Tried terminal chmod 777 filename and does not fix permission denied error. And tried FileLaunch and Explorer same problem.
Not sure if i need sudo - [sudo_1.6.3p7-2_arm.ipk]?

Not sure where from here? Hope someone can help?


Regards
Conrad

What ROM/OS are you using, is this on the standard Sharp ROM? Anyway, AFAIK any chmod operation on any Linux distro requires sudo, if it's not installed you should try installing it.

Hi

Found this http://distro.ibiblio.org/pdaxrom/download/contrib/voider_feed/sudo_1.6.8p8-1_arm.ipk

But i have another error: Zaurus is not in the sudoers file when i try to use sudo. I have set the root password and zaurus password

I have tried this fix to edit sudoers and add zaurus

# User privilege specification
root    ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL

Insert the missing user right below of the text above as shown below.

zaurus   ALL=(ALL) ALL This part is different. root    ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL
 
https://alexandrerosseto.medium.com/linux-user-is-not-in-the-sudoers-file-1a937d3b2a35

The file saves, but i have the same fault. :Zaurus is not in the sudoers file.

Hope someone can help?
 

Thanks
Conrad

Hi

Figured the first error out. I was tiring to chmod on a fat drive.  :P
