Trying to extract the cram file from PizzaPup105 to a dir., I've tried cp, tar, & Rox, all had errors.
I'm mounting a spare cram file, not the one that's mounted by Pizza, so that's not it.
Googled my keester off, nada, it's gotta be easy to do... what's the trick guys?

if it is mounted like normal usr_cram.fs , try opening ROX select the wierd
Code:
.XX
.XX
XXX
its to show all files.
symbol and the /\ symbol
you should see a .usr_cram click on it.
select all drag to another folder.

I don't know what kind of errors you're getting since you didn't say, but if you're extracting it to an FAT partition then all of the symlinks will give errors, since the permissions will be wrong. Just a stab in the dark there, but you didn't give us much to go on.

If it's mounting errors, then just make sure you're using the correct code to mount it and that you hav eenough loop devices left.
Code:
mount -o loop usr_cram.fs /mnt/data

would mount a spare usr_cram.fs on /mnt/data, assuming you were in the directory it was located in.

If both those suggestions are way off base, give us more information to go on.

Nathan F, you hit it on the nose, I think it was Ted Dog that warned me about trying to use Fat32 partitions.
I'm not too slow, I just have to make the same misstake a half a dozen times before I get the hang of it.

You could make a giant filesystem image and set it to be mounted as /workingdir in rc.local, then just work in that. That way you wouldn't have problems and you wouldn't need to repartition the harddrive.

Excellent idea Pizzasgood, it's what I did working with the image file, just didn't think of using it here, DUH...
