Two things - if your Pi won't arrive for while, you might wanna delay compilation till right before it comes. You might wanna used gparted to just reformat the storage section, but if it's permission issues you might wanna check out what the permissions are try to change them instead.robbo100 wrote:Hi,
I have been following the instructions http://wiki.openelec.tv/index.php?title ... spberry_Pi to get OpenELEC 4 PRi working.
Sadly I have had to send my Pi back because it was faulty, but I want to try to get the SD card ready for when the replacement arrives.
The problem I have been having, is that my second partition on the SD card (ext4 format called "storage") does not allow read or write access from either the Ubuntu PC that I am setting it up on, or on the Pi. During bootup to OpenELEC the Pi reports that it can not write to \storage\xyz. Also, within Ubuntu, when ever I click on the "lost+found" directory in the "storage" partition I get the warning
"The folder contents could not be displayed. You do not have the permissions necessary to view the contents of "lost+found"."
Also, I can not make a new folder or copy any files to the partition either.
How do I fix this? I am following the instructions to the letter!
On my card, permissions in the storage folder are 755, owner is root, and group is root.
