I am trying to determine the name of my CF card in Linux to partition it for the J720. I am using andLinux with Windows.

This is the printout I get when I entered dmesg | tail in the console:
[root@andLinux ~]# dmesg|tail
EXT3-fs: mounted filesystem with ordered data mode.
VFS: Mounted root (ext3 filesystem).
Trying to move old root to /initrd ... okay
Freeing unused kernel memory: 128k freed
Adding 262120k swap on /dev/cobd1. Priority:-1 extents:1 across:262120k
EXT3 FS on cobd0, internal journal
NET: Registered protocol family 10
lo: Disabled Privacy Extensions
eth0: no IPv6 routers present
eth1: no IPv6 routers present

I don't see anything with "Attached SCSI removable disk" to tell me the name of my CF. The CF card is in a USB card reader and plugged in.

Is my CF card in the above printout?

Thank you!

I have NOT initiated a mount. I was just following the instructions found at http://jlime.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=92&t=1242 and got to step c of the partitioning your CF card section.

Do I need to mount the card, find its name, then unmount it to partition?

If the card isnt mounted and you are the 'root' user type 'fdisk -l' and it will list all attached devices.

Cheers.

Thanks for the suggestion, RTFM, but nothing happens when I typed in 'fdisk -l'. It just go down to the next line with the prompt: [root@andLinux ~]#

Maybe it has to do with andLinux?

Possibly. I've read about andLinux, but its a non standard sorta thing. Maybe try with a live cd like puppy linux or damn small linux for good measure.

Cheers.

Thank you. I got a Live CD and managed to partition the card. Still having problems figuring out how to download and get the files onto the card butthat's because I'm not familiar with Linux. Will keep going over the How-To for now.
Thanks, again.
