Slypheed - Inbox To Sd?
« on: June 17, 2006, 07:52:13 pm »
I was looking at the configuration files for my mail client, and i didn't notice an entry that tells it where to download the inbox ....   I would like to store my mail on an SD card so I'm not using up my preciouse internal flash --- I might be able to do it with a symlink ->   but can't I just set up slypheed to dl straight to the Sd card instead of tricking it ?


any tips?

I did this with a symlink - I created a folder called Mail on /mnt/card and symlinked ~/Mail to it.

I did the same with ~/Documents and that makes upgrades/reflashes much easier.

I moved my whole home dir to SD, but I've got a lot of problem with simple symlinking, so if you decided you want to use andrewwoods' solution, you can do something similar:
Code: [Select]
mount -o bind  /mnt/card/myhome /home/root
SL-C860: pdaXrom 1.1.0beta1
SD: 1GB A-data, GPS: Haicom HI-303S, Bluetooth: Nokia DTL-1 CF, CF WiFi: ASUS SpaceLink WL-110

I don't understand the syntax ->

mount -o bind

What exactly is that doing?  I think a symlink would be easier than mounting / unmounting (especially during suspends) .. but how is this method better?  I don't yet understand exactly what it's doing.
