When running b2g on the pandaboard, it seems the sdcard may not have all the right pieces in place for it to be used as external memory. If you launch the 'music' or 'gallery' app in gaia, it will complain about no memory card being found, even if I push files to /sdcard and /mnt/sdcard.
How can we make space available? This is needed for gaia smoketest automation.
Adding dividehex in case he has an idea from the IT side to make this happen.
Is this related to Gaia UI tests at all? (bug 802317)
Yes, this is related to gaia ui tests (bug 802317), but only will block specific tests, not the entire suite.
I caught up with dhylands about sdcard partitions, and by default, there is no volume configuration for the sdcard. There should be a vold.fstab file in /system/etc/ describing what to mount. I tried fiddling about with different configs, but to no avail.
Dhylands has filed a bug to get this resolved: Bug 821357
mdas/jgriffin/dhyland: its been a while since update in this bug - can you give progress/status?
AFAIK, there has been no progress, and Bug 821357 has not been updated :/
mdas, should this still block bug 802317?
Can I assume that it does not prevent us from greening the gaia UI tests? (we currently only have the calendar test failing)
It prevents us from running the music and video related gaia UI tests. We're greening the tests by removing these from the list of tests we run, so if we had access then we can run more gaia UI tests.
There is a fat32 partition (/dev/sda6) on the panda board which is utilized by the android panda image as /sdcard. Is there a reason this isn't be used for B2G on pandaboards?

That's a question that's better targetted at dhylands on bug 821357 :)
No longer using pandas at mozilla
