I'm new to linux and I need help for mounting the spare partitions of my xbox.
I've done a FRUGAL install of xdsl.

here is the information from fdisk and mount:


root@0[/]# fdisk -l

Disk /dev/hda: 81.9 GB, 81964302336 bytes
16 heads, 63 sectors/track, 158816 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 1008 * 512 = 516096 bytes

Disk /dev/hda doesn't contain a valid partition table

root@0[/]# mount
/dev/root on / type ext2 (rw)
/dev/hda50 on /cdrom type fatx (rw,nosuid,nodev,umask=000,uid=1001,gid=50)
/dev/cloop on /KNOPPIX type iso9660 (ro)
/ramdisk on /ramdisk type tmpfs (rw,size=44540k,size=39241k)
/proc/bus/usb on /proc/bus/usb type usbdevfs (rw,devmode=0666)

now the question is: what I have to do to find and mount the other partitions (the F: drive I used to have with Evox/XBMC for example)

I've dir the /dev folder but there is so much stuff in it ...

thanks a lot for your help !!

why is the partition table unreadable ?
Do I have to do a native install for mounting the F: drive ?
or to rewrite a partition table ?

Should show right up when you use a file manager and look into the mnt directory. How big is your hdd? If f drive is bigger than 127 gigs then you are not going to be able to read it. There is also a limitation of size on g but I dont know what it is off the top of my head. The reason for this is cluster size. Xbox-Linux will not read 32k or 64k partitions.

do you know how to use emelfm yet? if you are trying to work thru the command prompt, you will find it much easier to browse your file system via emelfm.

ok, sorry for this reply lag ...

The problem was just to know which device to mount and i found answer here: http://www.xbox-linu...sk_Partitioning

I just had to mount the hda55 device and it works fine, for drive F simply:
mount /dev/hda55 /mnt/F

The not-so-serious Fdisk 'invalid partition table' problem drove me into wrong direction rolleyes.gif
