ext partition on redux 1.0.2 not mounting - htc desire
I've created a ~500mb ext2 partition on my sdcard on redux custom rom 1.0.2 on htc desire. However, Link2sd doesn't seem to like this partition (complains that it can't mount and can't write a script to automount at boot), but then I read that redux comes with something installed already. However, it doesn't seem to be using the partition properly.
Mount shows up thus:
/dev/block/mmcblk0p2 on /sd-ext type ext2 (rw,noatime,nodiratime,barrier=1,data=ordered)
Any suggestions about what I need to do to get this partition used as part of the system storage?
Thanks in advance.
