I want to resize the partition tables of SailfishOS to allow 4GB of / and still be able to maintain a properly working device (granted, I don’t mind this if I can have my Android_storage on an SD card). Most of my important stuff is on the android_storage, so migrating that to the SD card (even if I have to re-link it later is fine). If I could move the entirety of /home and just link the paths to /dev/mmcblk0 that’d be fine as well…
I just feel like the 2Gb / partition fills up way too fast.
Did you take a look here
If I make these modifications, can a system update still happen properly?
And especially -if / is quite full- it only can happen with this modification
So, to recap, I should be able to move my /home to my SD and expand my / partition to fill the main eMMC?
If this wasn’t my main SFOS device, I’d already be doing it…
I’ve expanded / of my X and X10. Works great.
Do the linked articles talk about moving /home to sd? At some point having ring tones & alarms in sd caused problems because sd was mounted at a bit late state during booting (iirc).
I’m not sure, since I’m still actively using this XA2, I can’t test it personally…
don’t know the partition sizes on X & X10, but it is probably not needed to move /home to SD card. you can always symlink parts of it, if needed, and keep the main home on internal storage.
Sorry if I hijack this a little Rinigus - I want to install Flatpak and I don’t have enough space on my XA2Ultra.
have you used
--user while installing flatpak? user data seems to be sufficient. So, it seems you forgot that argument from docs.
I just copypasted, so it seems unlikely…I’ll try again, thanks
…I probably opened the terminal session as root. Anyway, installed ok now, thanks.
