Hello bmarkus I need your help please:
I made some progress now with my cubietruck. I used a new CT kernel from the cubietruck forum and copied it over my current uImage. I left everything unchanged and I have a cubietruck system now working at the command line and has dhcp connection to the internet. That is great so far. According to the README file in the dCore Allwinner A10 repo I should be able to install an X-desktop.
I set up my tce directory on mmcblk0p1 (/dev/sdc1) using tce-setdrive. I have only one FAT32 partition on my micro SDcard which is sdc1=mmcblk0p1. Now - when I try ro install the first extension:
$ importsce -b Xprogs
I am getting errors like this:
tar:can't create symlink from /usr/local/share/pixmaps/screenshot.png to logo.png : Operation not permitted.
tar:can't create symlink from..... and so on.
Other stuff is copied and my /mnt/mmcblk0p1/ shows all the boot files and my /tce with all the content from my importsce operations. I also modified uEnv.txt to start x at boot. But it does not start x and it seems that it can not execute code.
Question: What might be wrong?
Am I supposed to put the /tce into the boot location /mnt/mmcblk0p1
Or should I shrink the mmcblk0p1 (/dev/sdc1) partition, which is now 100% FAT32 and make a new mmcblk0p2 partition using ext4 or ext2 and put the /tce onto that partition?
If I could find a solution for this problem I could have a dCore -X for cubietruck.
BTW: This board is selling like hot cakes.
