TN003 - Installing on a SD card

Typically you won't have enough memory space on your internal Zaurus Flash memory to install QuantumSTEP. This can be solved by installing to an SD card.

Note: QuantumSTEP runs much slower from an SD card than from internal memory. We are trying to find the reasons.

Here are the steps:

  1. Backup all data on your SD card or use a fresh one
  2. If the card is not already formatted with an EXT2 file system:
    1. Open a shell on or to your Zaurus
    2. umount /mnt/card
    3. mkfs.ext2 -v /dev/mmcda1 - this will reformat the card as EXT2 and wipe out all data!
    4. Wait approx. 1 minute to complete the process
    5. eject and reinsert the card
  3. ln -s /mnt/card/ /home/myPDA
  4. back in Qtopia, click on the QuantumSTEP installer .ipk file
  5. Install to Internal Memory (this will nevertheless install most parts to the SD card)
  6. be patient - installation will take several minutes to a slow card
  7. The Applications tab should now show the QuantumSTEP icon
  8. Do never unplug the SD card while running QuantumSTEP
