3.5.2 - Problems, Fixes, Questions
« Reply #60 on: December 15, 2004, 05:10:33 pm »
CoreDump - Have you heard of any problems installing tkc app onto the latest Hentges ROM.  I have a 64-0 kernel and a 128MB SD card and installed the cardfs-opie-full-openzaurus bin file on first boot up.  All went great and looks great.  But when I try to install any of the tkc app's to the sd card the install seems to go ok but the applications will not run.  Any ideas?

As with all pre-oz-3.3 software, you'll need oz-compat to use it on OZ ROMs > 3.3.6

It makes no difference if I run them with or without the oz compat libs.  None of thekompany apps will run for me.  I've removed and re-installed and reset with compat libs but no joy.  I can't figure it out.

I'll try to install tkPlayer later today and report back. It worked fine w/ 3.5.1 and I don't see a reason why it shouldn't work w/ 3.5.2

First, Coredump thank you for a great image.

Second, why does the usb-ethernet so flaky.  It seems a hit or miss when I connect via usb to my W2k system.  Also, if I am trying to sync with Intellisync in the security settings  I get ~50 pop-ups on my Z about allowing or denying unauthorized connections (I also have accept sync from any selected).  With Opie selected I don't get the annoying pop-ups but the sync does not seem to work consistently.

Any ideas, help, etc would be appreciated.

Thanks

John

I don't use USB, so I don't know. Might be your Windows or even a 3.5.2 bug

This has come up with 3.5.1, too. I don't know if there is a solution for it, yet.

tkPlayer launches, but crashes on some files.
Other files are played back correctly.

There is a solution to the USB problem here:
USB Solution

You have to run a script before putting the Z in the cradle, but it works.

Figured out the syncing issues:

1.  Need to link /home/root to /root (like Oz3.5.1)
2.  Use Opie instead of Intellisync in the sync dropdown in Security.

Thanks

CoreDump: just wondering where the kernel images have gone to be used with your ROM?

URL: http://hentges.net/tmp/do_not_use/

seems the kernel dir vanished over night

If you have problems with resuming from suspend, remove opie-wirelessapplet (which isn't installed by default)
I dont see opie-wirelessapplet installed on my 5500 when I check in AQPkg yet I'm still locking up at every suspend.

I've run out of space on my z and it won't let me install anything else.  I flashed the 64-0 image!  
I've got a 256mb flash and when i was using oz3.2.1 I moved the /opt, /root, and /home directories to the sd and symlinked to them.  When I tried that with this version of oz, it fubared the install and I've had to reflash.  I want to be able to install everything to sd and have my z use the sd for everything, before trying to use the internal memory.  Any ideas?
If it helps, I don't intend to remove the SD from my z ever so i can use it like a kind of hard drive.

Thanks in advance.

@powered_by_penguins:
You might want to read this:
http://www.hentges.net/misc/openzaurus/car...to.shtml#mvroot

It works but still has some issues. If you can live w/ (harmless) ipkg error messages,
go for it.

@ all:

I've just uploaded a new version : T3 final
It fixes some small bugs in the installer. I'm using it for a few days now, and it apears to be
stable  

Please understand that I'm not testing each and every installed application.
