[maemo-users] n810 Internal Memory Read Only?

Good Morning All,
	I use Claws mail, which I set up to stores the actual mailboxes
	on the internal memory of my n810. I also have the maximum swap
	enabled on that card. Nothing else is stored there, or writes
	there as far as I know. There was an empty tmp directory there
	that I don't know where it came from. What happened was Claws
	started crashing, either immediately on startup or when
	accessing a mailbox folder. The card was only about 1/8 full as
	reported by the Nokia file manager. Trying to move the Claws
	folders to the external card with the file manager failed, but
	it did copy some files. The error message was some files read
	only. Using xterm and cp had much the same results. Once the
	files I could transfer were done, file manager would not allow
	me to format the internal memory. Error message was card in
	use. Control panel would not allow me to disable swap.  I could
	not remove swap with rm -rf in xterm. Error message was system
	file cannot delete. I ended up accessing the card with my
	notebook via the usb cable, and deleting everything with
	Nautilus. I then formatted the internal card and all is well
	again. I moved my sig files back to the internal card but I
	cannot seem to copy the mailboxes w/o causing Claws to crash.
	It would be nice to  have them back but not worth spending a
	lot of time on it. It appears that all the files have the
	correct attributes as reported by Nautilus. I think the cause
	might be that my n810 battery ran out at the same time the card
	was being accessed. Does this sound right, or should I be
	worried about other gremlins? 

Best Regards,
Peter The Plumber sm
