xfs partition trouble

September 04, 2008 — BarryK
eprv, I looked at the gtkdialog file, there is an empty frame:

Barry, the HYPERSTONE is a cheep 500MB CF card formatted as Linux swap. I use it for those (not so good) Linux distributions that require a swap partition, to preserve the bigger 4GB TRANSCEND CF card. The XFS partition is on the TRANSCEND, sda1 on my system. Tried it now with Puppy301 pmount is working but that partition is not detected, I think there is no XFS module there, modprobe xfs returns an error. Thanks for your help, maybe just adding an explanation pop up in pmount for that situation is sufficient.

"Hmm, odd. Pmount should not even have created the <frame> tag for that drive. Can you please post the output of 'probepart' here? (and identify which one is the HYPERSTONE drive).
