Hi,

I am a new zaurus user. I just received my new zaurus and installed openzaurus 3.5.4.1 (Spitz) on it. Now I cannot seem to see the internal microdrive. Can anyone help me locate the 4Gb hard disk.



I would really appreciate it. Thank you,

Zombie

I understand that the partitions on the hdd should be /dev/hda*

Check to see whether these are in fstab - so you can see where they're mounted, if they are.

Otherwise just mount them somewhere convenient.

the version of openzaurus you installed installs directly to your microdrive. if it boots it has booted to the microdrive and everything you see is the microdrive

I went out on a date today and was watching some music videos on my zaurus while parked in the coffeebean waiting for virgin to release final fantasy 7 on dvd at midnight. What i had trouble was finding my internal 6gb in the file manager. What happened was that the cf bluetooth was suspending after I closed lid and when i started up the z, the internal drive was gone. Just right now, i bounced into meanies website and found that the internal drive is hda3 and just figured out how to unmount and mount the drive. I had these commands added to the qconsole so i wont have to retype the commands. crazy stuff. fstab couldnt tell me this at all. anyway. My expirience has nothing to do with what's going on with you. laugh.gif

good luck!

god knows how many times i need to thank meanie.

Hello! I had similar problem, OpenZaurus 3.5.4.1a2, Borzoi. I couldn't locate that 4 GB my Zaurus should have on its hd.

Fdisk output:

Disk /dev/hda: 4095 MB, 4095737856 bytes
16 heads, 63 sectors/track, 7936 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 1008 * 512 = 516096 bytes

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/hda1 1 292 147136+ 83 Linux
/dev/hda2 293 371 39816 83 Linux
/dev/hda3 372 7936 3812760 83 Linux
--

Last lines from /etc/fstab:
#
# Harddisk
#
/dev/hda2 /home ext3 defaults 0 0
/dev/hda3 /media/hdd vfat defaults 0 0
--
hda3 is mounted as vfat, althoug Id 83 means ext2/ext3. df and du didn't see /media/hdd.
I tried to scp a 100 MB file to it, if was filled when about 80 MB was transferred.
Solution I could think of:

In console/terminal:

mkfs.ext3 /dev/hda3

Edit /etc/fstab -line (using vi, or editor you like)
/dev/hda3 /media/hdd vfat defaults 0 0
to
/dev/hda3 /media/hdd ext3 defaults 0 0

mount -a (or reboot)

and /media/hdd is now 3752816 1k-blocks.

Sounds kind of like the problem I had a while back.
