Edit; it says sdcard is corrupted and a notification comes up "touch to fix", I will backup the contents of the fat32 and see if it does.

Edit2; not tried "fixing" it yet, looks as though it formats something, but looking at file manager, it seems that it has created its own storage, /storage/emulated/0, with new folders (eg music,DCIM,..), as with a freshly formatted sdcard, but I still have stuff on my sdcard FAT32(music, DCIM...) I need to backup.
It is late here, will try in the morning.

Works smooth as kitkat, nice


.......

same here , i have create sdext 1 and 2 with minitool or recovery but cm13 don't see the two partitions. i have restored two sdext with backup of 4ext recovery and now i can't instal cm13 for the second time .something wrong


I think I found my problem, I do not have eyes in front of holes this morning.
end for the moment , i go to my job

it seems it is a feature of android 6, it has the ability to treat an external sdcard as internal memory http://androidcommunity.com/android-...rage-20151021/
if you choose to use it as internal memory it gets reformatted and encrypted. I don't think this is a good idea for us since it might reformat the whole card and not just the FAT32
If I give root access to file manager, I can see /sdcard but it looks to be symlinked with /storage/emulated/0 because i can't see existing files on my FAT32. So the FAT32 is not mounted. i have the notification that it is corrupted, and in settings/Storage & USB the Portable Storage SD Card is described as corrupted. It might be because it is partitioned.
I will try another sdcard and see what happens.
Edit; I have attached a dmesg of this first install.
Edit2; i re-installed on a fresh sdcard and after booting i tapped on the "fix it" notification to format, a progress bar got about a third of the way then there was an error which flashed on the screen briefly, but the rom seemed to still work ok. I then switched off the rom. But it wont boot again now, hangs on htc screen. from dmesg it can't mount sdext or sdext2 (attached dmesg2.txt).
i still have the sdrecovery on the sdcard, so it didn't format the FAT32, seems to have just wiped or formatted the 2 ext partitions. in recovery, i can't mount either partition.
So don't try to "fix" the sdcard.
Edit3; looking at the sdcard from minitool, there is only 1 partition. it seems to have deleted sdext and sdext2 (i also had a swap partition at the end which has also gone). So there is now unused space on the sdcard.
I wonder if you get the notification if using ext4 partitions, probably.

Edit4; ok, have re-installed with 2 ext4 partitions and still get the notification. I have the feeling that ext4 is a tad more responsive than f2fs, anyone else?
I have adb working over windows. after plugging in usb I got a notification "usb for charging" clicking this gave me the option to use mtp for file transfers. This option makes the phone discoverable via adb. hooray.

Edit5; mount does not show mmcblk0p1 perhaps it needs to be done in fstab? Attached screenshot

Edit6; I see camera and sim toolkit in settings/apps, but I don't see them in the apps drawer. So cant use them
play store force closes.

Yes Robbie even I have the same. I am a bit busy these days but in time we will have a stable build just like lollipop / kitkat.

How do I vote for your thread to be featured in the portal? It's definitely worth it IMHO. Not just for this, but also your lollipop rom.

You should be able to rate the thread with stars AND vote for the thread as newsworthy using the top right buttons, I use xda 2010.

I think we are going to have to live with the internal storage situation.
i have tried a few mount commands and the FAT32 shows up in file manager, but the music and gallery apps don't see it.
i've read that when marshmallow uses an external sdcard as internal memory it wipes it, then formats it as ext4. Although i am confused about this since it didn't wipe the FAT32 as above, but perhaps it wipes in reverse (p3,p2,p1) and had an error, not sure.
We already have an ext4 (or f2fs) partition for data, and the internal storage memory is stored in the data partition in CM13/data/media/0 so now all our music, photos, etc, anything that is usually stored on the FAT32 will be stored in the data partition.
we still need to boot from the FAT32, but now it can be a bit smaller, just enough for the rom.zip, twrp, SDrecovery and DirectSD folders
It does mean that we can't share music, photos etc with other nativeSD, directSD or SD builds, so to avoid duplication it might be best to have it on its own card.
