lupu520: have meego on usb flashdrive and wanted to format it to ext2 so i can do a grub2 for mint.
what gparted sees is a unallocated space. but the meego on flashdrive already boots. mego is using some other file format which isnt recognised in gparted. attached is screeshots of relevant stuff. will hold off reformat for a day or two so i can answer any more questions.
ie.is the file format used by meego revolutionary new and worth looking into? file system is called iso9660 by drivemounter. gparted calls it an invalid partition- recursive partition. distrowatch says Journaled File Systems: Btrfs

grep -i -n -A 10 -B 10 btrfs /etc/modules/DOTconfig-K2.6.30.5-01SEPT09-TICKLESS-SMP
3273-# CONFIG_GFS2_FS is not set
3274-# CONFIG_OCFS2_FS is not set
3275:# CONFIG_BTRFS_FS is not set

There are several fs not set as module or inside the kernel . Booting puppy from such a fs would likely fail .

pmount and pup_event_fronend_d use probedisk2 and probepart which uses "guess_fstype" , "fdisk -l" and also look in /sys and might assign "iso9960" instead of "unknown" .
#must be a device without partitions...
scd*|sr*) #usb,sata,scsi cd/dvd drive.

Xfs for example is common in menus to format in other distros . And it seems not to be included by default inside the initrd.gz , to be loaded to mount the "PDEV1=/dev/[mshf]d[a-z][0-9]*" for frugal installs , and has to be compiled inside the kernel to be able to mount /dev/root @full installs . The kernel module is there in /lib/modules/ but might have to be be modprobed before compiling , so configure can detect it and add it to the Makefile . But still gparted would not like to work with it for it would need fsck.xfs and mkfs,xfs to be able to work on it . Also the initrd.gz would need statically compiled mkfs.xfs and fsck.xfs to be able to resize and fsck . The large distros often use an ext2 formatted initrd.img , which is @suse-11.4 a 33MB gzip 'ed file and unpacked likely 90-120MB .
