Help on installing apps in SD card in SmartQ7 / reformat

Hello guys,

I have been trying to install Okular in this for couple of days and I finally succeded, just to find out that there is not enough space.

I am using apt-get install because there is no single .deb package for it. There are dependencies that amount to about 135MB.

I have put a SD flash card.
Is it possible to use apt-get install and still install in the SD card?

If not, could someone direct me to a way to re-flash the device. I was installing libraries left and right and ran out of space. Now have no way of removing and re-installing this is the only way. Can I do that?

Any help is appreciated.

Cheers.

If you have filled the internal memory it is probably better to re-flash and start again. If you read this thread here; http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...t=54988&page=2 from thread #22, it should help you get up and running again.
When installing apps you really should use something like apt-get or gnome-apt to avoid the 'Dependency Hell' that can arise otherwise.

Thanks heaps Nation. I flashed to Ver.4.0.
It seems much better.
