how to mount the GPT partition under ubuntu or chrome os.


Hello.

I'm trying to install Fedora 17 on the sd card of my samsung / arm chromebook. I'm following this tutorial :

https://www.berrange.com/posts/2012/...le-chromebook/

I'm freezed at this point :

vbutil_kernel –pack /tmp/newkern –keyblock /usr/share/vboot/devkeys/kernel.keyblock –version 1 –signprivate /usr/share/vboot/devkeys/kernel_data_key.vbprivk –config=/tmp/config –vmlinuz /boot/vmlinuz-3.4.0 –arch arm

because I don't know how to mount the /boot partition. This is the partition scheme of the ssd card where is installed ChromeOS :

localhost # cgpt show /dev/mmcblk0

1 label "STATE" type linux data
2 label "KERN-A" type chromeos kernel
3 label "ROOT-A" type Chromeos rootfs
4 label "KERN-B" type chromeos kernel
5 label "ROOT-B" type Chromeos rootfs
6 label "KERN-C" type chromeos kernel
7 label "ROOT-C" type chromeos rootfs
8 label "OEM" type linux data
9 label "reserved" type chromeos reserved
10 label "reserved" type chromeos reserved
11 label "RWFW" type chromeos firmware
12 label "EFY-SYSTEM" type "EFI system partition"

I tried with the mount command :

mount -t auto /dev/mmcblk0p2 /mnt

but it says : you must specify the file system type. Is there another way to do so ? Really I need to get the vmlinuz-3.4.0 kernel file from the orginal chromeos installation to complete the tutorial. thanks for your help.

Does this device boot to a cd or usb? Might be easier to http://www.yumapk.com/how-to-install...hromebook.html

I'm on the samsung ARM chromebook model,like this : http://www.samsung.com/us/computer/c...XE303C12-A01US
it has no dvd support. ubuntu and chromeos boot from the sd card,that's internal for chromeos and external for ubuntu.

Is this supposed to be a new partition?
Quote:
mount -t auto /dev/mmcblk0p2 /mnt
If so did you do step #5?

Are you creating partitions to install & then mounting them? Most of all did you resize the partitions on the drive to have free space to create a new partition to install to?

I'm not creating new partitions. The partition scheme that I've posted has been created from a long time. I would like to access the partition labelled mmcblk0p2.

If you use -t in the mount command, then you have to specify the filesystem type. You say you're going to do that when you use -t. If you don't want to specify the filesystem type, then don't use -t. Just use the ordinary mount command. Note, the authors of some of these guides don't really know what they're doing, or what they're talking about. You have to use some knowledge if you want to succeed.

The code you posted won't work, even if you do get the mount right. The commands bundled need two dashes '--' in front of them, not the single dash you posted. I think I've seen that tutorial, and you have to manually change the dashes to two of them. He's copied everything from another site, and the formatting was wrong on the original site, and still is.
