ps it also wont download and/or unzip a zip test file i uploaded to my email acc. containing some jpgs and pngs

I'm unable to download any zip files-can you tell me what I'm doing wrong? I modified the conf file so it looks like this:
Quote:
# List extensions you want to have downloaded by FreeDownload
# Make sure you don't specify permitted extensions like azw or mobi, your files would be downloaded twice
ALLOWED_EXTENSIONS='pdf epub rtf zip cbz mp3 rar'

# Where should FreeDownload put your files ? The directory will be created if not present
# If / is missing at the beginning of the path, "/mnt/base-us/" (AKA user store) is prepended
DOWNLOAD_DIR=documents/Downloaded

# Where should FreeDownload put files with 'mp3' extension ? The directory will be created if not present
# You can specify own download directory for any extension in a similar way
DOWNLOAD_DIR_mp3=music

# Where should FreeDownload put files with 'aax' extension
DOWNLOAD_DIR_aax=audible

# Resume previous download if a local file with the same name exists
# Target files are overwritten if this option is disabled
RESUME_DOWNLOADS=yes

# Unzip any file with .zip extension into its own subdirectory after download
# ZIP archives containing illegal (non-utf8) file names won't be unzipped
AUTO_UNZIP=yes

# Log all downloads and errors to freedownload/freedownload.log
LOG=yes
Lines c

I hate the Whispernet, it could be nice to replace the internal "3g" module with a wifi one...

Question How to install?

I am new to the Kindle Keyboard 3g/wifi.
I consider myself an advanced user of the computer, but i can not figure out how to install this hack.

Can someone kindly point me to an install and an uninstal guide and how to access the configure file.

Thank you.

Is there any way to make the browser open "new Window" links in the same window? A couple of great sites have all their download links set up to open new windows which makes it useless for kindle...

Why /mnt/base-us/ in freedownload script? Also need a little help

I had tried installing this by running install.sh directly from my kindle over ssh, it appears to place all the files, and have the correct pid files, modified the wrs.ini, made the rc.d scripts, pgrep shows that freedownload and freedownloadd are running (Also install.log shows all steps completed). However when I try to download anything over wifi it doesn't show me anything in the launchpad bar at the bottom. Looking at the debugFile that is being written to from wrs.ini shows nothing, the file exists, but cant be cat'd.

I noticed that the freedownload script is using /mnt/base-us/ instead of /mnt/us/ since I dont have a dir called /mnt/base-us/ I tried to change this, but it made my kindle freeze whenever webkit was started.

Why is it that you are using /mnt/base-us/ instead of /mnt/us/ ? Also do you have any ideas on why freedownload doesn't want to work for me?

This doesn't seem to work for me. After a proper install of the 'install.bin' file and a restart it continues to pop up an error upon trying to download files.


Also, +1 for requesting an option for it or another possible hack to open new windows in the same browser. That'd work great for downloading attachments from Gmail. Of course, this feature would only work for me if I can get this hack working in the first place.
