I have FSO and SHR bootable from the flash card, so I boot into one of those then: mount -t jffs2 /dev/mtdblock6 /media/cf vi /media/cf/init.rc I've changed the mounted partition to mmcblk0p3 in mine to stop it writing data all over my FSO rootfs. _______________________________________________ Openmoko community mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.openmoko.org/mailman/listinfo/community
