[SOLVED] TinyCore can't make more than one partition persistent
« on: October 05, 2017, 04:57:09 AM »
Hi, I have a VM running the TCL, with 2 Virtual Disks (sda and sdb.

When I install TCL on sdb with tc-install-GUI:

1- I take the core.gz form sda
2 - Choose ext4 in Formating Options
3 - In "Boot Options Reference List" I define "home=/dev/sda1 opt=/dev/sda2"
4 - In the extension Installation I pick the tce directory from sda1

Doesn't matter if I put a different directory on sda2, it never makes it persistent, and after installation I can see it.

I don't understand why.

Try opt=sda2

Still nothing.

It always return the same error "Invalid device specified. Skipping persistent OPT request!"

Was it formatted? The installer will only format the install partition.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

Yes. Evertime I install, partitions are formatted.

Yes. Evertime I install, partitions are formatted.

How about the output of "fdisk -l".
Did you format the partitions manually ?

De disk was formatted by the tc-install wizard

Output of fdisk -l, just showed what was previously thought. The second partition was not created.

Disk /dev/sda: 17.1 GB, 17179869184 bytes
64 heads, 32 sectors/track, 16384 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 2048 * 512 = 1048576 bytes

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks  Id System
/dev/sda1   *           1       16384    16777200  83 Linux

I believe the options you picked are [frugal] [Whole Disk].

That would wipe out the entire disk.

You should use [frugal] [Partition] instead if you wanna partition the disk yourself.

I was marking [USB-HDD], which prevents me from choosing [existing-partition].

I tried to pick [frugal][existing-partition] but there was no difference.
