  • Can you run fdisk -l and blkidand post the results here, please?

  • as far as i know, sd-cards are not handled like hd… and extra some sd-cards are working under linux and others not, the same with some usb-drives…

    But i remember on testing to install system on sd-card that there are needed some modules [sdhci sdhci-pci]?

    May be mmc_core & mmc_block

    @joekamprad
    May be mmc_core & mmc_block

    MMC
    SD

    But i think it is abad idea to have ext4 on a flash-card… because of to many writes for journaling e.t.c.

  • I am not an expert on such hardware specifications ;)

    But i would use a non-journaling filesystem…

  • For disabling the journaling on Ext4 FS use the command:

    mkfs.ext4 -O “^has_journal” /dev/xxx

    That is a CAPITAL letter o, not a zero in the command
