I want to partition a CF card for Linux. I've been able to browse and edit files in the existing ext2 file system, so I know this works, but now I want to start over. The card is recognized when I put it in the PCCard adapter and plug into my powerbook.
myhost:/dev mls$ fdisk /dev/disk1
fdisk: /dev/disk1 is not a character device or a regular file
Do I need to mount it differently, or have I reached a limitation here? Any help would be appreciated.
fdisk is telling you the problem: the device is not a character device. Try /dev/rdisk1
Thanks! Obviously my *nix skills are pretty rusty...
As an aside, I see in the readme file that you take donations a couple of ways. Will you also be accepting donations through sourceforge in the future?
I won't be setting up Sourceforge donations anytime soon. I don't really want to deal with another payment processing system. In fact, I prefer Amazon items from my wish list to actual monetary donations.
