Thx for the quick response.

changed this

mount -t reiserfs -o loop /mnt/fatx/e/rootfs /mnt/rootfs

for this:

mount -t reiserfs -o loop /mnt/e/rootfs /mnt/rootfs

and it all seams to work nicely :)

just need to change the fstab without an editor now :)

cheers

To create the loop file system dd if=/dev/zero of=/mnt/fatx/e/rootfs count=2500 bs=1024k yes | mkreiserfs -f /mnt/fatx/e/rootfs Then you will have to boot your system using the stardust CD use ctrl+c to get out of the installer. mkdir /mnt/rootfs mkdir /mnt/hda2 mount -t reiserfs -o loop /mnt/fatx/...

emerge fluxbox

will give you version 1.14r2 and if you want the development version, then;

emerge x11-wm/fluxbox/fluxbox-0.9.6_pre9.ebuild

If you have a native install small enough you can create a loop filesystem on e: copy the contents of your hda2 into it then reformat the drive in ext3 and copy everything back. If you have too much stuff installed on to your linux partition you could swap your harddisk into a PC and copy the files...

spathi Yep, you are right. I'm sure you can use ext3. I'm using native 'f' install. Its the xbox specifics I'm not sure of. Should be able to move the data on /hda2 'somewhere else', reformat it to ext3, then move the data back. Change fstab for /hda2 to ext3 and that should be it. Maybe I am making...
