<p>Just to get one thing straight - are you sure the 2gigs for apps and /home are not enough? Or, did you just run out of rootfs space (i.e. Didn't placd your app under /opt ("optify" it), and hence think you need to repartition your mmc)?

<br>> Hi guys. I want to repartition my flash.
<br>> I want to have more space for apps and more space to develop on.
<br>> For starters I want to try the swap solutuion. I guess it is a good first
<br>> step for me.
<br>> I have 3 questions:
<br>> 1- I want to have also more space for apps, this solution won't help me
<br>> there, right?
<br>> 2-I have an N900 with PR 1.3 so are the NUMBERS bellow in the "table"
<br>> file correct for me? (I'm not sure if those numbers are for the N900 or
<br>> another device running maemo)
<br>> 3-I've read in the tutorial about other solutions for repartitionning
<br>> more oriented to having different Operating Systems like ubuntu. I have
<br>> an SD card, could I install Ubuntu there as I did with the NitDroid
<br>> project or would I need to repartition the internal flash?
<br>> Please, If you could, write me a comment or advise.
<br>> thanks and whish me luck.
<br>> We assume you have the standard Nokia partition layout on your device.
