Posted by icepick on Mar. 16 2008,06:58I have a HDD install here and when I run mydsl-load with an extension, nothing happens.. no error.. just nothing.
If I do mountci <extension> I can copy the files manually.. but I wonder why mydsl-load doesnt work on the HDD install. If I run DSL from a CD on the same pc, I can do mydsl-load without a hitch.

Makes you wonder why anyone would want to do a HD install in the first place.

..as long as a .dsl version exists. I haven't tried running unc2dsl yet.
Posted by mikshaw on Mar. 24 2008,12:27I didn't know there was an unc2dsl
What I would do is mount the unc as uci rather than unc. You should end up with a directory in /opt that can now have its contents copied to the main filesystem.
