Can you provide details on what partition map we should create when formatting the USB Drive. Additionally, I am wondering how much space you assigned partition 1: swap and partition 2: ext4

Not sure what everyone else is doing, but I partitioned a gig for swap and 7 as ext4. Everything appears to be functioning for me.

I know 1gig for swap is absolutely massive. Conventional wisdom says swap to be twice the RAM for kernel panic purposes. So anything above 64Mb should do the trick.

Just finished reading through the forum and found this from bongk:

"I configure it with 500 MB swap on sda1, 3 GB ext4 on sda2, and the remaining 500 MB as fat on sda3. I don't mount the fat or use it for anything yet but thought it could be nice to have that flexibility for data logging, etc. You'll need to load an additional module to mount the fat partition..Ill post instructions a bit later today"

Awesome! I like the idea of another partition for flexibility. do you suppose there is enough room for the FAT and HFS extensions?

My understanding is that you should be able to mount FAT32 and ext2 out of the box.

As for HFS you should be able to install kmod-fs-hfs and get it mounted (i haven't tried it).

To install it you would use the following command:

opkg install kmod-fs-hfs


Below i have included some interesting packages related to different filesystems.

--------

block-hotplug
block-mount
fdisk
hotplug2
kmod-fs-hfs
kmod-fs-hfsplus
kmod-fs-msdos
kmod-fs-ntfs
kmod-fs-vfat
kmod-nls-base
kmod-nls-utf8
kmod-scsi-core
kmod-usb-core
kmod-usb-ohci
kmod-usb-storage
kmod-usb2

Post information is so good. Give me some details about FAT32 and ext2.
