Unable to configure terminal application in a Sharp Zaurus PDA
 
I am using a Sharp Zaurus PDA. I installed the terminal application that came on the CD with it, but now i have a problem. I need to set it up so that the terminal automatically runs the commands:
ifdown
ifup

in that order when i open the terminal program. I already set it up so that one of the Application keys opens the terminal. I tried to make a .login file for it, but its a read-only filesystem, so you cant create a .login file, and you cant modify anything above /home/root

The filesystem in Zaurus is very strange. It improperly mounts network drives and it improperly uses the /home directory. It put the root directory in the root directory, and it has 6 objects in it:
Applications
Documents
Settings
modules
systeminfo
usr

I have installed an SSH daemon, and it works properly.


I tried to give you every bit of information i have, but if you have a question, ask away.


HELP!!!

I found the file system with the Sharp ROM to be a bit weird too.
One suggestion I will make is to look at installing Open Zaurus. I found it to be more like a real Linux distribution.
Another thing about OZ, is it treats the flash ROM as writable, so you do have a full read/write filesystem , which might aid your problem in creating your .login file.
