    Does this make the card in the organelle R/W? :-)

  2. thetechnobear on said:

    no, the OS partition on the sdcard is read only for a good reason.

    what this supports is if you have a second (writable) partition on the internal SD card, then yes, it will use that , when a usb stick is not inserted.

    currently this means, getting a bigger SD card, and manually following the steps I describe here:
    this is how Im running my organelle now :)

    Id like to get C&G to be happy with this approach first, then perhaps we can script it… so it can be run as a patch. but bare in mind, if it goes wrong , it can ‘toast’ the sdcard (well you’ll have to format it again)

    there might be an option or repartitioning the C&G supplied 4gb SD Card, so there is 2GB for the OS, and 2GB for patches/samples, but i need to look at this is more detail, the issue is C&G already allocated the whole partition, and I’m not sure if it can be compressed.

    … and of course, doing it on users ‘factory’ sd card, means they are without an organelle, till they fix it
    so perhaps doing it on a bigger second SD card, is better for most people anyway… so you keep your ‘factory’ card intact

    That’s what i was thinking. setting up a simulation and keeping the factory card separate.
    But i do have the leisure of two of them. i still wonder if we could still get away with scripting it to write to the internal drive /tmp and put a limit on that with a shell script might be safest

    > How do you assign favourites
    details on forum… but basically , load a patch as normal , then ‘show favourites’ -> add current to favourites.
