I was using Von Welch's instructions to install a 500 GB Seagate drive to write the recordings to.
Everything seemed to be going okay until
mkfs /dev/sdb1 then we get an error message:
mkfs.ext2: inode_size (128) * inodes_count (0) too big for a filesystem with 0 blocks, specify a higher inode_ratio (-i) or lower inode count (-N)
My son is trying to help me but this is beyond him. Our knowledge of UNIX/Linux is very limited. At work the support people just sent me a line by line cook book.
The computer is a Gateway MDP e4000 with Mythbuntu installed on a PATA drive and we are adding a SATA drive for the second drive. The BIOS sees the drive.
I would appreciate any help you can give us.
