    Hi there,

    for 2 years I was using a palm Pre with preware homebrew
    apps, meanwhile it's a Pre+ with WebOs 2.x.x aboard.

    I am quite content, as i use Linux in private as well,
    but lately I installed some patch that prevents my
    device from booting.

    Instead, the (hp) logo displays all the time (for hours),
    but, luckily, I can login using novacom/novaterm.

    I could provide some logs if this helps.

    I hope being able to remove that patch (don't remember
    its name by now) - from the command line?

    Any chance to find a log of lately installed packages?
    I looked in /var/log, but didn't spot the right one.

    Thanks so far,

    There's a log in /media/internal. All the undo patches are also there in a hidden folder. You just have to find the right one and lsdiff it back.

    Thanks for the hint.
    tells me, that it must be something different. I remember the last patch, 2 days ago,
    no probs after that.

    Then it must have been any other installation (app?) that had asked for reboot,
    but I said "later" then, and the boot hang occured today after manual reboot.
    (I did so because installing apps from the hp app didn't work any more, after
    hitting the install button, it came back after a second).

    Maybe do a fs-ck and integcheck? integcheck will verify system files and see if they're corrupt. See the resource link in my signature for the guide on it.

    Thanks man, you are very supportive.

    I looked further down my file system, is it normal to have a /var of 100% usage?

    Palm Pre:/var/log# du -x . |sort -n |tail
    4 ./reports/efs
    4 ./sa
    8 ./uploadd
    16 ./lost+found
    28 ./rdxd/uploaded
    32 ./reports/librdx
    40 ./reports
    292 ./rdxd/pending
    324 ./rdxd
    2008 .

    -> backup rdxd/pending/*.tgz & delete them. After this I get surprisingly:

    du -x /var |sort -n |tail
    10204 /var/mft/usr/lib/hwtest/ted/images
    11064 /var/palm

    Hi there,
    with your help, and with my general Linux experience,
    I found out that /var was 100% full.

    One of the largest folders was /var/mft, I moved it
    to /var/file-cache/ (hoping that this directory is not volatile)
    and created a symlink to the old spot:

    # cp -a /var/mft /var/file-cache/
    # rm -rf /var/mft
    # ln -s /var/mft /var/file-cache/mft /var/mft

    Now, my device boots again!
    I just have to find out how to resize /var up.

    Cool, it looks like you still have he original factory test photos. You should take a look.and share it with us.

    Test Photos? What do you mean? Are you talking about my paste snippets from "mount" etc. revealing the original partitioning? Tell me, how I can help you
