rootfs.bin is not a file inside your DR device. rootfs.bin is the file system (i.e. all the files and directory structure that is to be copied to the device when installing or updating the system).

With terminal access with tools like rxvt you can enter into that real running file system of your device.

But note that you need to get the uds binary from a DR1000 (rxvt on a running DR1000, or the instructions above with a DR1000 rootfs.bin from a Linux computer), so installing rxvt into a DR800 won't do it.

Thanks for pointing me to it.
I tried the new version and now the installation works flawlessly, thanks again Iņigo!

Now I'm trying it.. And I didn't know that a post can't be deleted..

---
Finally it works on my DR800SG.. Thanks for Iņigo and CoolDragon who advised to me
I felt that the device appears a totally different one! So fantastic.. Maybe it became the uncomparable device now on the earth I think..

btw, how could we show at once all of the four icons(pen, eraser, zoom, panning) which are combined in one 'shortcut arrow' icon at the right in the bottom status bar? I think it would be more convenient..

Congratulations for your new device!

We have limited room for icons in the status bar, no more than 10 or 12 as much. So I had to choose which ones to show. I didn't include the ones on the cycling button because you can reach them there. Also I've included new ones: bookinfo, fullscreen and rotate screen.

My plans for the future are:
- clock
- additional cycling button. As my quick test removing some icons/actions from the current one, I don't know if this is really possible, as some behaviours are hardcoded on the uds binary and we can't modify it.

Hehe, mine as well I have already started and have a good idea how to do this on a limited icon space. Hopefully will have smth working next week. We can discuss implementation details in another thread or PM.

@Iņigo:Very much thanks. And I didn't know well that there isn't enough room for more icons because I use it on landscape mode nearly all the time.

In fact, CoolDragon's attachment pictures just reminded me of the icons arrangement.

It amazed me at the first time I saw it.

But I found it out now that the cycling icon isn't so inconvenient for me when I'm used to it

Hi, I'm trying to mount from a Fedora Live-CD
When I try the first method:
[root@localhost liveuser]# modprobe jffs2
[root@localhost liveuser]# modprobe mtdram total_size=90000 erase_size=256
FATAL: Error inserting mtdram (/lib/modules/2.6.33.3-85.fc13.i686/kernel/drivers/mtd/devices/mtdram.ko): Cannot allocate memory

When I try the second:
[root@localhost 6638-3431]# modprobe loop
[root@localhost 6638-3431]# modprobe mtdblock
[root@localhost 6638-3431]# modprobe block2mtd
[root@localhost 6638-3431]# losetup /dev/loop0 rootfs.bin
losetup: /dev/loop0: device is busy

As my Linux experience is almost none, what is wrong?

Dear Catharsis,

You ran into the same problem I did. It is why I used the loopback method.

[root@localhost 6638-3431]# losetup /dev/loop0 rootfs.bin
losetup: /dev/loop0: device is busy

The second method assumes no loopback has already been used. As you are using a livecd most likely it will already be using a loopback device so /dev/loop0 will already be in use.

Try to use loop1 instead of loop0 in the losetup command. Rember the further steps of the second method need loop0 replaced with loop1 if you do.

i.e.

try the following:

[root@localhost 6638-3431]# modprobe loop
[root@localhost 6638-3431]# modprobe mtdblock
[root@localhost 6638-3431]# modprobe block2mtd
[root@localhost 6638-3431]# losetup /dev/loop1 rootfs.bin

Thanks bran. After running losetup -a I discover that loop5 was the first free loop and I could mount and extract the file.

Glad to hear you understood my hint about looking for a free loopback device. I'm also glad to her you got it to work!

Have Fun with the dr800+

Regards,

I finally got a hold of the DR1000 file and installed this. Absolutely wonderful, this really greatly enhances the utility of the device. Love the tabs and all the new menu options.

Auto shutdown never worked reliably (under any 2.0 firmware) for me even before installing this. So I have settled into the habit of doing a manual shutdown every time.
