When I type "which gcc" nothing comes up, and no I did not skip step 4.


Does the word "source" mean where the file is located on the card.
When ever I do these two commands
#cp -R /mnt/card/ztmp/* /mnt/card/.zgcc
#cp -R /mnt/card/itmp/* /mnt/card/.include
an unable to link... :operation not permitted error comes up.  Could this have something to do with the SD card or something like that because I type the su root.  I was also thinking that maybe it's because I have a 5500 instead of the 5600 but aren't they pretty mucg the same.  I am running a Sharp Rom that was for the 5600.

Is your SD FAT formatted?

Symbolic linkages require Linux ext2 formatted media.

Reformat your SD to Linux ext2 format and you should be on track.

Would you happen to know of either a good program for reading/writing ext2 fs cards in windows, or how to get a card reader to work in Redhat Linux 9

Also I have trouble mounting the card on the Z.

SanDisk 8 in 1 card reader.

Thanks.

Hi,

Partition Magic is not for accessing ext2 filesystems, you know ?

There exist a commercial ext2fs driver by Paragon.
You can find here a plugin for Total Commander (read only access).
And this may be useful too.

But IMHO its better to use the Card Reader on a Linux box. If your Redhat is ready for USB usage the Card Reader should work out of the box. The cards can be accessed through SCSI devices (/dev/sd??).

You should be able to reformat directly on the zaurus.  I have compiled e2fsprogs for the 5600.  Dont know if it would work for the 5500 though (It should).   If you manage to find an ext3 module for your system, that would be even better so you dont have to deal with a bunch of fscks.

Zynergy Rootfs 1.1
Custom zImage

I got the card reader to work in Linux and formated the card into ext2.  This time the operation not permitted error did not come up.  I go through the rest of cmisip tutorial and I still can't get the shm stuff going and the gcc and g++ aren't recognized.

Also haveing trouble installing perl.

Hi TuxGeek,

any success so far ? If not, what exactly you have done ? It was very easy for me, to install dev-img on my Zaurus. Copy the dev-img and install script to SD-Card (allready ext2 formatted), run install script as root and ... voila ... ready for compiling.

Hi Tux Geek,

I presumed that your SD is ext2 formatted.

Please post the contents of this command "df" here.

Next, did you see any .zgcc and ,.include diretories under /mnt/card?
