I recently acquired a c700 with Cacko installed. It appears to have a minimal set of applications installed. I have installed and have working the Pelrun 2g+ mmcd driver and a 2g SD card formatted as fat16. I would like to be able to run installed software from the SD card and would think that an advanced file system would be required so that the attributes the linux depends on could be preserved and read. The jffs2 file system is the default for the resident flash memory. Is ext[2-3] sufficient? I am searching this forum and getting threads that discuss multi-partition cards with fat16 and ext2. Is there a recent thread that discusses the pro's and cons?

I prefer using google to search oesf. Try the following search, which turns up good threads and a how-to:

site:oesf.org partition fat16 ext2 OR ext3

Be sure to put the "site:oesf.org" in with no spaces, and to capitalize the "OR".
