Hi All,

I've been running OpenBSD exclusively on my Zaurus for a year or so - and I recently been trying to restore the initial Linux partitions that are shown in my fdisk output below:

zaurus:fred ~> sudo fdisk wd0
Disk: wd0 geometry: 11905/16/63 [12000556 Sectors]
Offset: 0 Signature: 0xAA55
Starting Ending LBA Info:
#: id C H S - C H S [ start: size ]
------------------------------------------------------------------------
0: 83 0 1 1 - 19 15 63 [ 63: 20097 ] Linux files*
1: 83 20 0 1 - 39 15 63 [ 20160: 20160 ] Linux files*
2: 0C 40 0 1 - 1080 4 4 [ 40320: 1048576 ] Win95 FAT32L
3: A6 1080 4 5 - 11904 15 63 [ 1088896: 10911344 ] OpenBSD
zaurus:fred ~>

Could anyone do:

dd if=/dev/wd0i of=linux1 bs=512 count=40

and

dd if=/dev/wd0j of=linux2 bs=512 count=40

And let me have copies of linux1 and linux2 as created above?

Or any other advice on how to restore the orignal linux partitions back to my Zaurus would be appreciated.

Thanks

Fred

Hi Jpmatrix,

That looks great - I'll give it a try.

Thanks
