There's an automatic formatting function in the overobuntu builder that will
automatically create the correct partitions (and partition sizes) for any
size SD card. You can download the overobuntu builder by going to
gitorious.com/overobuntu, or by running the following from your terminal:
git clone git://gitorious.org/overobuntu/overobuntu_builder.git
Run overobuntu, with the following parameters:
replacing /dev/mmcblk with your device. DO NOT use mmcblkp1, etc, as these
refer to a specific partition rather than the card device itself. Make sure
you use the base card device (ie: /dev/mmcblk on my machine).
Once Overobuntu has started, click on the "Card Options" menu, and click on
"Format SD Card". This will automatically correctly format any sized SD
card to boot on the Gumstix Overo, with a FAT partition for the boot files
and the remainder partitioned for the root file system.
