I'm fortunate to have a C3000 and a C3100. I've been using pdaxrom beta2 on the C3000 for a while and enjoyed the simplicity of installing applications because the whole of the microdrive is available.
However, frustrated by the bugs in the C3000 beta I've decided to install pdaxrom beta 3 on my C3100. While this is much more stable, one of the greatest frustrations I find is that installing applications is not so simple. It seems obvious to use the space on the microdrive so why is this so difficult?
I'd rather not install apps to CF because I use this slot for wifi or bluetooth cards.
I'd rather not install apps to SD as I have a debian chroot environment on SD and I'd like to keep that clean
There is no sign of my microdrive on df.
filesystem blocks mounted on
/dev/root 51200 /
none 12288 /dev
/dev/mtdblock3 72704 /home
/dev/mtdblock3 72704 /mnt/user
/dev/mmcda1 499928 /mnt/card
Can I make an ext3 partition on the microdrive for installing apps?
What solution do other people here use?
