I have a 101a, would love to test it.  Where do I get the ps.fi2 and ps.fir files for the G16 101a?
I did get the file g16-101a-1.5.0-4832-full.zip, but can't get to the load firmware option.  I did unzip it to the newly formatted card.  :)

The G16 port doesn't have a ps.fi2 (yet). If you are a Windows user, see my previous post.

Linux user.  Also, I did not want the card to boot directly since I never used CHDK before.

ATM Bootable Card is your only option for running CHDK on the G16. It doesn't affect the way CHDK interacts with the camera (only makes it slightly harder to install - for non-Windows users - but much easier to use).

Ok, will find an old Winblows computer.

Thanks for really quick help!

Not too old, hopefully. CHIMP won't run on XP.

If you're OK with running Java, there is a Linux installer.

AFAIK, booting via the "firmware update" method (using a ps.fi2) is not available for any Digic6 camera. 

For installing any CHDK build not available via the autobuild download page, on Windows, Linux, or Macs, see http://www.zenoshrdlu.com/stick/stickx.html

I hate to be a pain, but it fails with my card.
Seems the card must be mounted first, so it is.
I think this is the problem:
/dev//dev/sd/dev/d1
But I don't see any way to change that.

 Here is the log file:

More info...
I don't have a /dev/sd/
/dev/sdd is the card.

Did you try to run the java jar file directly or did you use the bash script (which sets up the directory stuff and invokes java using sudo).
