I’ve just purchased a SanDisk 16GB class 6 Micro SD card from Alza.cz, wich is one of the most reliable stores here in Czechia. It was really cheap. They offer two better class cards of this size (a little bit more expensive) but no bigger sizes. I hope I’ve chosen a good piece.

I’ve just finished the installation of your precompiled module. Everything has gone well. Thank you in advance!

I’ve checked the card for bad blocks but fsck.ext3 hasn’t said if there are any. It has just said that it was updating the badblocks inode. Maybe there just aren’t any. It seems that no new filesystem corruption is being introduced when using your precompiled kernel module. I’ll report after further testing.
