Note : The following is far from being complete


The Om 2008.8 filesystem

The root filesystem consists the following directories:

  • bin
  • dev
  • home
  • media
  • proc
  • sys
  • usr
  • boot
  • etc
  • lib
  • mnt
  • sbin
  • tmp
  • var


The first difference to the standard Linux filesystem is the lack of /root directory. This directory is located under /home/root/.

Under /home/root/.evolution/ one can find the config and data files for contacts, calender, memos and tasks created on the FreeRunner.

The file /home/root/.ash_history is a history of commands for the standard shell (ash). If you use bash, it will create the file /home/root/.bash_history.

The inserted micro SD card is mounted under /media/card.
