My problem turned out to be due to my fault.
I'm very sorry, mtas.

After I tried Adam's script, I checked my installed ipdf's size.
It was about 74kb. (The copied ipdf should be 80.9kb.)
Because I think my iLiad's disk may be full,
I tried deleting the Chinese font file(mshei.ttf) and ran Adam's script.
Now all OK. I can read pdf files

My iLiad's temporary free disk space is:
Filesystem 1k-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/tffsa1 73045 71190 1855 97% /
/dev/tffsa5 28065 2 28063 0% /mnt/protected
/dev/tffsa6 131180 110244 20936 84% /mnt/free
/dev/tffsa7 581 46 535 8% /mnt/settings
/dev/hda1 2026104 137364 1888740 7% /media/cf

And the deleted mshei.ttf is 1858kb. Is iLiad's free disk space such severe?
Or isn't my iLiad normal?
(Recently I installed some Japanese fonts to CF.
I may take some mistakes during it.)

My iLiad has almost 5MB free on the root drive. You may want to put the fonts on your memory card because of the extra storage they are using.

I have a sort-of tutorial here: http://forum.irexnet.com/viewtopic.php?t=1168

Code:
root@ereader:~# df -h
Filesystem                Size      Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/tffsa1              71.3M     66.6M      4.7M  93% /

It actually turns the last stroke into an "erase" stroke, meaning that it will (largely) erase any scribbles the stroke passed through. I also find the manual refresh (press and hold arrow up) useful when there is a lot of ghosting (say when starting on a fresh sudoku). Excellent work with the installer and all - fun to see people using the patch. :-)

I see in another post that the CPU speed is stuck at 100mhz after exiting ipdf. I've fixed it and updated the binary and pdf (the ipdf2.9.1-rincewind.patch). I believe that if you exit (the old IPDF) with the top most button (the ladder-arrow thingy), it will exit at 400mhz - just until you get upgraded. :-)

What was the date of the update to the binary? I only grabbed it last night (about 18 hours ago) from the url I linked to at iRex forum, so hopefully its the fixed version already..

Modified: Tue 08 May 2007 07:42:55 AM CEST. MD5 of the last is 9d760418337137b0d85a697bbc4dca8a. To test if you have the latest one, open a pdf, press "News" or one of those buttons. If your iLiad is dog slow (ok, dogger slower :-)), you don't have the latest version.

I'll make a small ipdf.html page with dates and versions later...

Thank you very much for your info and advise.

I'm anxious about my too little free space.
But because I moved some fonts to my SD successfully,
I can enjoy the nice ipdf without any trouble, I believe.
Thank you all!

I decided to give it a try on my own and modified an existing installation script to use the latest version of ipdf. It seems to have worked! I don't think that is enough to be called an iLiad developer, but there you have it.

Well done. I'd say you qualify
