File system size after using Gparted

Hello, On the back of a fresh Arch install I've used Gparted on a live CD image in Virtual Box to resize the partition /dev/sda2 to fill up the 4gb SD card. Before the process, the used size was 1.75GB but after using Gparted the used size is 2.4gb. I assumed, perhaps naively, that the used size wou...

Re: Creating an iso

Hello,

By ISO I did mean IMG, sorry for the confusion. Both answers have certainly been helpful, thanks. I wanted to end up with a file that i could copy, store and re use as and when required.

Re: General Firmware Question

Thanks for the reply,

At lease I can learn through making mistakes and know replacing the image can fix problems.

Another question on the firmware, is it possible to have a number of SD cards with different OS's or configurations on them for different purposes and just swap them around?

General Firmware Question

Hello, I've read a number of posts about firmware updates, in particular using the updater written by Hexxeh. What I don't quite understand is where the firmware is stored, is it on the SD card (in the OS image somewhere) and its loaded to the Pi during boot or is it permanently stored on the hardwa...

Re: Debian default partition

Thanks Spider,

There are many ways to do it as far as i can tell, plus a couple of YouTube's covering different ideas.

I just need to get the thing then I can start learning it.
