I need to add a command to one of the startup scripts in the root (normally read only) partition in nand. Does anyone know if that partition is REALLY full as the filesystem reports? Will adding a few bytes to a file tip it over the edge and corrupt the file?

you should be able to remount the root partition as read-write (cramfs can be a read-write file sys, unlike squashfs which is immutable). I've made small changed to Cacko without killing it.

Maybe you could find some junk file which can be removed beforehand.

And, if you do a NAND backup beforehand, you can recover from any mistakes!

let us know how you get one, good or bad wink.gif
