Extending omega 2 + memory

  • Hi everyone,

    I have an omega 2 + and I'm trying to extend the RAM memory.
    After the USB is mounted to "/mnt/sda1" (i checked and there's no directory such as "/tmp/mounts/") I typed "dd if=/dev/zero of=/mnt/sda1/swap.page bs=1M count=256" and this is what I got:

    root@Omega-6E16:~# ls /mnt
    mtdblock7  sda1
    root@Omega-6E16:~# dd if=/dev/zero of=/mnt/sda1/swap.page bs=1M count=256
    dd: can't open '/mnt/sda1/swap.page': Read-only file system

    Any ideas?

    Thank you for your help.

  • @Jorgehst is the USB drive mounted? I suspect not so you are just mounting a device that has no file system access

  • Sorry, that was incorrectly worded. I men you are trying to write to a file system that is not mounted.
