I have a C1000 and have recently purchased a 4gb Hitachi Microdrive (3.81 available)

I am using it in under Qtopia 1.5.4 as supplied by Figlabs.

Initially I was able to see the drive in File Manager, and copy files to it but not save them directly from the Hancom applications (I checked it was 777)

Then I changed the partition table to 2 x 1.91GB drives.

When I put the CF card in the Zaurus, it mounted the first partition which worked wonderfully in Qtopia (including Hancom) but I could neither mount nor see the second partition.

I am happy with having the drive split, but would appreciate help on how to recognise the second partition.

Incidentally, I am also a victim of the 2GB SD limit, and I am thinking of partitioning this card to 1.9 + 0.1. so info on mounting the second partition of that would also be useful

Bless you all,

Make sure you have the second partition in the fstab. Also make sure you have a mount point made in the /mnt folder. Basically just copy what the fstab has for the drive, I think it shows as /dev/hda1, so make a /dev/hda2, and make a directory in /mnt as /mnt/hda2. This is all off the top of my head, so I'm not 100% sure, but this should point you in the right direction.

I tried to do this,

basically the entries in /mnt are just links to files in /usr/mnt.rom,

I cannot add a cf2 directory as it is telling me it is a read-only file system and it iwll not let me chmod

help

thanks

That's wierd, I put a /mnt/usbstorage on mine. Maybe remount root as read write?

I would need to be walked through how to do that, as I am not so au fait with Linux
