Thanks to your book that I now know more about how to create extensions for DSL. So the story is that I am trying to create an extension (preferably .unc for lower end computers) for chinese input environment such as xcin. (ref.
http://seba.studentenweb.org/thesis/linux.php) What I need is chinese fonts (surprisely it is already included in dsl-4.0), an input method editor like xcin, and proper locales (>= 2.2.4-1).
In order to install xcin from "apt-get install xcin", the locales needs to be (>= 2.2.4-1), so I tried "apt-get upgrade locales" and the following is what I got:
|Code Sample |
[/home/dsl]# apt-get upgrade locales
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
The following packages will be upgraded
bzip2 libbz2-1.0 mpg321 pcmcia-cs
4 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
E: Could not open lock file /var/cache/apt/archives/lock - open (28 No space left on device)
E: Unable to lock the download directory
The question now is "Is there anyway we can get around the problem and install xcin?" "Can locales be separated as extensions?" "Can locales be upgraded using extensions?" "Can any of the files or directories embeded in the CD image appended or modified using extensions (like mount --bind)?"
Thank you for your assistance!!
