You might try doing the same as what we did for unrar -
search the packages.debian.org site for whatever the name of this fuze-zip package is, find a pre-built binary.

(Most of the Kindle's system looks like it is from Debian, not hand built by lab126).

I am curious why you use the path with more characters to type. I always use the shorter path (which also has more privileges, in this case). On other embedded systems that I work with, the "base-" mounts are read-only compressed filesystems, and the shorter mount names are the writable overlay filesystems. The underlying kindle filesystem is writable, but the "base-" mounts still have restricted privileges.

So, out of curiousity, why did you choose the longer "base-" mount name when they gave you two options, and most examples (including the startup scripts) only use /mnt/us/ ?

If you want to know, I'll explain: simply, I didn't know there was such a difference between /mnt/us and /mnt/base-us...
And this is the first time I face a problem using base-us so using base-us wasn't a problem for me!

Hello again!!

As I have little spare time, I'm playing around with fuse-zip...
I managed to find an armhf version here (hope it is correct!).

I extracted the fuse-zip file and placed it in /mnt/us.
I tried mounting hello.zip in /mnt/us/hello folder using:
Code:
/mnt/us/fuse-zip /mnt/us/hello.zip /mnt/us/hello
but I get:
Code:
/mnt/us/fuse-zip: not found
I did everything just like I did with unrar, but no luck!

Any help?
Thanks to all for all the patience!

Try armel version. armhf doesn't work (well, it should, but, I guess, exact set of compiler flags used for package building is introducing [slight] incompatibility with KT CPU).

But, honestly, even armel fuse-zip from Ubuntu Precise archive (which you're linked at) will not work. Firstly, it will requre libzip. And with presence of libzip, it will require FUSE 2.8 (KT 5.1.0 has FUSE 2.7).

So no chance of having fuse-zip on kindle?

I found libzip...and now it says:
Code:
/mnt/us/fuse-zip: /usr/lib/libfuse.so.2: version `FUSE_2.8' not found (required by /mnt/us/fuse-zip)
Is this useful?

I love this forum because every time I learn something new. Just discovered with this thread that packages from Debian of the proper architecture can be used on the KT.

Playing tetris from bsdgames in xterminal now. I know, there are probably a ton of other packages more useful than this, but this come to mind to do the test
