I have the same problem, try to correct with accessing this command as root, without results, but this started since the upgrade to version 1.11 of BootMenu in this thread:

http://talk.maemo.org/showthread.php...ght=Backupmenu

and report the problem but apparently not a bug in the dependecy could someone tell me to do.


Someone else who has updated bootmenu, has the same problem?


PD:when I enter the command:
Code:
root
cp /usr/bin/evkey/ /usr/sbin/evkey/
cp: canīt stat ī/usr/bin/evkey/ī: Path has non-directory component
I get this error

Just remove the slashes at the end:

cp /usr/bin/evkey /usr/sbin/evkey

I copied evkey over to sbin, and now I can access the menu. However, it is not responding to input. Tried booting twice already...

can someone upload the file here?
its already expired.
i only use eMMC, i.e. only N900 32GB for everything.
and by "sdcard", does it mean to extract contents to MyDocs?
thanks.

During setting 2nd device for family member, I've encountered same problem - backupmenu was basically unusable, due to /usr/bin/evkey instead of /usr/sbin/evkey. I've modified backupmenu scripts to search in /usr/bin/evkey - it made backupmenu to start, but doesn't respond to any key pressed.

So, only one working way was to cop evkey between /usr/bin and /usr/sbin. It's rather workaround, than a proper solution. Why the heck it's like that? It's bootmenu's fault, or backupmenu's one?

BTW, it almost screwed me - I prepared Maemo mounting scripts to use ext4, and turned device off. I liked to start backupmenu, connect it in mass storage mode (read&write) and repartition it - yet, due to non-working backupmenu (via evkey disaster) I ended up with Maemo configured for one filesystem, yet, no possibility to reformat it before boot. Only fact, that ext3 can be mounted as ext4 saved me from reflash (I was able to boot using ext3 mounted as ext4, and copy evkey).

Of course, not demanding anything - it was my fault to not check backupmenu before (frankly, I trusted it, as it never failed me before ). even now, it seems to me, that latest bootmenu update screwed something.

mmm, I symlinked evkey from /usr/bin to /usr/sbin and it works fine...
