1  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Help with File systems on my Sheva plug running ubuntu on: January 13, 2011, 09:52:02 AM
Loving my Plug!!  I have a SheevaPlug running the standard UBUNTU distro as the OS.  I have moved the RFS to an SD card using the excellent instructions in the FAQ. 

Problem:
Recently my SD card failed. (lots of input output errors on command execution.)   I use the Plug currently as a webserver and a NAS.  So lots of data passing back and forth.  Was thinking I should use a hard disk as the RFS as a way to up reliability.

My Stab at a solution:
I want to use my USB Passport drive as the Root file system.  I have a powered hub and it mounts fine.  I hope I am simply missing something as I assume most people would want to have the RFS on a larger drive.  Or is it the case that you base the web on the hard drive and the RFS does not matter?

Questions:
Is this the right thing to do? i.e. even if it is possible,  would the experts recommend another way of using storage on my Plug?
Is there a definitive FAQ to show me the steps to doing this?

Sorry if this is a newbe question or there is another place that addresses this and I havent found it..
