it is. But I simply put /opt/ usually - so without the SD I can still boot, only in txt mode

Please guylhem can you tell me the right procedure for moving /opt/ to SD ?
Thanks !
eddiectc
my procedure is tar the opt first, then untar it in the sd, then rm the opt, and make a symlink there
or you can use cp -d to just copy the opt to the sd, then rm the opt, and make a symlink
after all, u need to reboot

cd /mnt/card/sdroot
tar -cvf root.tar /opt
tar -zvf root.tar
rm -rf /opt
ln -s /mnt/card/sdroot/opt /opt

Hi,

I have been trying to move /opt to SD card; but when I follow eddiectc procedure, I get an error in the command "rm -rf /opt" - read only file system.

Any help will be appreciated.

On a 6000 with the stock rom anyway /opt is ro, but I believe if you move /home/QtPalmtop somewhere else and make the symlink from there you achieve the same effect.
