Ramdisk into second partition


I'm trying to use the validation image (Ramdisk.gz) filesystem as a
starting point for a non-volatile filesystem.

I get to put the filesystem in the second partition, and the
BeagleBoard XM boots just fine and everything works.

However all changes I make disappear after rebooting.

What I am missing?

The fist partition only contains : MLO, u-boot and uImage
The second partition contains the extracted version of Ramdisk
The kernel arguments are:

Kernel command line: console=ttyS2,115200n8 mpurate=1000 buddy=no
ne camera=lbcm3m1 vram=12M omapfb.mode=dvi:640x480MR-16@60
root=/dev/mmcblk0p2 rw rootfstype=ext3 rootwait

thank you

Hi guys,

Don't bother.

I didn't realise writing to the SD took so long. I reseted the board
before any write could be performed. My fault.
