Live USB with peristence, swap partition and extra storage partition
I have a 16GB Corsair Survivor flash drive that I have partitioned into three parts. The first partition (4.3 GB) contains the Ubuntu 11.10 live USB distro in which I used a USB tool to create. The second partition is a (6.7 GB) storage ext3, and the third partion is the remainder as a linux swap partition. The OS works fine but the other partitions are not usable. When I open my /etc/fstab there are no drives listed only
overlayfs / overlayfs rw 0 0
tmpfs /tmp tmpfs nosuid,nodev 0 0
Moreover, the I did mount both partitions by going typing "sudo mount -a" in my terminal and fdisk -l listed them all. But I still cannot write to the ext3 partition and I cannot even find the swap partition.
So my question is how can I utilize the other two partitions. I have dropbox installed in my /home folder but I cannot sync the entire dropbox folder because there is not enough space. The dropbox folder is 6 GB and the casper-rw file(persistence) is only 4 GB, which cannot be increased because the file system is fat32. I want to move my /home folder to the ext3 and utilize the swap partition to improve system performance.
