How have you formated the CF card? How have you downloaded SliTaz?
The card is win95 32 format. I have the Linux kernels on there also.

I just use a web browser to download to my Download folder and I think
this is where the problem might be. What do you suggest.

If I try to unzip with Linux I get;
Not in GZIP format.

I suggest to download SliTaz with a right click on the link and then with the menu point "Save target as" or something like this.

OK, that worked.

Installed and running. I'm loading the ramdisk off my PATA drive (ide1.0) and booting from CF0.:-)

How can we create an img gz file?

For example:

Code: Select all

find . -print | cpio -o -H newc | gzip -9 > ../rootfs.gz

For SliTaz it's very important to optimize and reduce the binaries and libraries. With the command strip can you optimize and reduce the binaries and libraries.

Code: Select all

strip -v *

The PKG_CONFIG_PATH is also important to compile binaries and libraries for SliTaz.

For example:

Code: Select all

export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/home/christian/distro/rootfs/usr/lib/pkgconfig
There are a lot of pkg configs in the pkgconfig directory.

Code: Select all

bigreqsproto.pc
ice.pc
inputproto.pc
kbproto.pc
renderproto.pc
sm.pc
xcmiscproto.pc
xextproto.pc
xproto.pc
The files include the paths to the header files etc.

For example ice.pc

Code: Select all

prefix=/home/christian/distro/rootfs/usr/
#prefix=/usr
exec_prefix=${prefix}
libdir=${exec_prefix}/lib
includedir=${prefix}/include

Name: ICE
Description: X Inter Client Exchange Library
Version: 1.0.8
Requires: xproto
Cflags: -I${includedir}
Libs: -L${libdir} -lICE
