Title: Howto place root partition on sata disk
Post by: sirionnetworks on March 11, 2014, 01:48:09 pm
Hi, just wondering if somebody can help me to get my attached ssd sata disk on a A10 Lime functioning as root disk , so i only need the sd card for the boot partition ?

I already enabled sata in the kernel config

I can see /dev/sda and partitioned it exactly as the sd card setup from 
http://olimex.wordpress.com/2013/12/13/building-debian-linux-image-for-a10-olinuxino-lime-with-kernel-3-4-67/ (http://olimex.wordpress.com/2013/12/13/building-debian-linux-image-for-a10-olinuxino-lime-with-kernel-3-4-67/)

but it doesn't matter what i change it still uses /dev/mmcblk0p2 as my root partition.

I tried the uenv.txt file on /dev/mmcblk0p1
modified /etc/fstab for root to /dev/sda2
changed the boot.scr to /dev/sda2

nothing helps...

Thanks in advance
