    Hi everbody

    I've recently bought one of the marvelous Acer A1. However, I have been using Ubuntu for a while and so I am used to it. So I've installed Xubuntu on this little machine and made everything work quite right. The one issue I couldn't overcome was to make Xubuntu recognize the SD Card in the 'Expansion Slot' as a hard drive or as a part of the internal SSD, like the feature available in Linpus.
    Being so, I would be most grateful if anyone could help me with this.

    Cheers,

    Antonio

    I have been working on getting this working on vanilla xfce, and have figured out most of the problem, but need help from someone who knows more about linux file systems. It works in Linpus by doing a mount using aufs, (aufs is a more advanced version of unionfs which merges multiple file systems) it looks something like:

    mount -t aufs -o dirs=/media/disk:/home/user none /home/user

    however it needs something else as it isn't quite working, and I am getting an error in my dmesg when executing. I have a thread running for this problem at viewtopic.php?f=5&t=1421

    If someone who knows more about linux can help, it would be greatly appreciated.
