I've just mounted a microSD card which has 17 partitions in my laptop and I'm getting the following error in the YaST partitioner:
Your disk /dev/mmcblk0 contains 17 partitions. The maximum number of partitions that the kernel driver of the disk can handle is 7. Partitions above 7 cannot be accessed
and indeed - I have only
/dev/mmcblkp0...7. Well, actually I have only 3 partitions because an extended partition starts at partition number 5, so it's p0, p5, p6, p7.
I've formatted this card using a card reader in a printer on another PC which was exposing the microSD card as
/dev/sdxY and allowed me to create 17 partitions. Now I've put it into a laptop with a built-in card reader and it gives the above error. Why is that?
It's suggesting to use LVM but come on, LVM on microSD is overkill and inconvenient as hell for removable storage.
