But I'd have to be able to install optware and I haven't a clue on how to do that without writing to the read only part of the O!Play (:

Well you could try (and this is untested):
Then create the tmp and ipkg dirs and follow instructions from previous post. The directory is /usr/local/tmp is mounted read/write by standard and (as an added bonus as i've read in other forums) does not get replaced on a firmware update...

Koenradus Wrote:Yeah I noticed you said that in an earlier post.
Can you please execute the following commands and post results ? Just curious what else is different ..
1) cat /proc/cpuinfo
2) cat /proc/meminfo
4) df -h

Will execute this tonight, when I'm home.
I did a quick scan for xml files (du -ah / | grep xml) and that gave me 0 files.
I will post a full list of all files on the O!Play on pastebin when I get home as well.

1) cat /proc/cpuinfo
The file list for the O!Play can be viewed or downloaded @ Pastebin.
I will look into what makes up the GUI. If you have any further requests let me know.

To get ftp going is there a slimmed down description that you could provide? The only reason I am asking is that at this time there is no disaster recovery for the O!Play which is odd. At least one person seems to have bricked their unit by following the Peter apparoach (in avfroums.com in the uk) which remount the r/o part as r/w and modified some files.
The easiest way would be to have optware installed without ever touching the r/o part of the memory.
Yep, that was me. In retrospect my suggestion would be to mount /opt to an external hard drive. Or otherwise be damn sure there's enough space on the internal flash memory. The problem is that you can't easily find that out - because of dependencies. I wanted to install mpd which is normally small but it wanted a whole bunch of space hungry dependencies and it blew up, taking the O!Play with it. Perhaps you can mount /opt externally, try to install ftp or whatever software you want and then AFTER seeing how much space is needed, you should be able to determine if it'll fit on the O!Play's internal flash.

Does that brick it? Or were you able to recover? Mm... on second read of your post I suspect you mean you bricked it... Dude that sucks. I will be sure to wacht out for that. If you would mount /opt on an external drive I suppose it just stops if that is filled, do you agree?

hmm .. looks like you have double harddrive then hijack204 .. Does your remote have a volume button ?
- Koenradus - 2009-10-12 19:34
Haha :-p, yeah that would be great. But alas... no joy...

The second generation ones do have volume button on the remote .. .. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/images/B002MCZJ3C/sr=8-1/qid=1254899148/ref=dp_otherviews_4?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&img=4&qid=1254899148&sr=8-1
