I am a complete Linux noob, hence posting in this forum
Can you help me? I am trying to put two partitions on a 1GB SD card but getting nowhere. Just so you know, I have also tried this with openSUSE 10.3 & 11 with the same results.
I can create the partition table the way I want, the problem comes when trying mkfs. This is what I get:
$ fdisk -l /dev/sdd1
Disk /dev/sdd1: 1019 MB, 1019099648 bytes
32 heads, 61 sectors/track, 1019 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 1952 * 512 = 999424 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x312e4143
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sdd1p1 1 257 250801+ 6 FAT16
/dev/sdd1p2 258 1019 743712 83 Linux
$ sudo /sbin/mkfs.vfat -n boot /dev/sdd1p1
mkfs.vfat 2.11 (12 Mar 2005)
/dev/sdd1p1: No such file or directory
If you need more info, please let me know.
