Hello

Don't know if it's really a "bug", in mi SuSE 8.0 Box,
my GP32 isn't recognized, then I install the software
using an VMWare Workstation "Windows XP" image, and
when copying the INITRD and ZIMAGE I get an error like:
Invalid Extension, only 3 characters are allowed for
extension file name: initrd...

Since I haven't a card reader... is there any fix?

Thanks

    Under linux, you need to use gplink software (provided in
    tools package) to upload code into the gp32.
    If you are already using gplink, what is your error message ?

    heck, if the filenames are too long just rename them to
    initrd. and zImage., shouldnt be a problem then oo

    Give a look on gplink (http://dexy.mine.nu/gp32/gplink). It allows one to
    perform file transfer through Linux nativelly, using libusb.
