    I'm trying to reinstall Ubuntu chroot but I remove it in Preware and all of the files are still on the ext3fs partition. Anyone know how to remove the files or just wipe the partition?

    Ubuntu leaves 1.9gb behind, even after uninstalling. Use Internalz Pro or Gemini to manually delete them. There's a thread here about it. Do a search for 'deleting Ubuntu files' and follow the instructions there.

    I already tried deleting the files using Internalz Pro, and the delete option doesn't show in the context menu. Can't find the thread you're talking about either.
    Could you post a link to it?

    Just make sure you aren't also using that ext3fs partition (logical volume) for something other than Ubuntu. For example, if you install Optware for sw such as OpenSSH, nano or Unzip, these will also get installed to that same volume if it exists.

    Nothing else on the partition except the Ubuntu chroot.

    I couldn't find the thread on this forum either, but I know I saw it...??

    Here's another's site thread: gadgetXplorer: #webOS: How to remove EXT3FS partition

    Gemini File Explorer is a paid app that's well worth its price and should be able to delete.

    In that case, if you are sure that logical volume is used for nothing else.

    1. Uninstall the Ubuntu chroot application using Preware.

    2. Umount the ext3fs logical volume:

    # umount /dev/mapper/store-ext3fs

    3. Remove the corresponding line in /etc/fstab that looks like a bit like this:

    /dev/mapper/store-ext3fs /media/ext3fs auto noatime 0 0

    4. Remove the ext3fs logical volume:

    # lvremove /dev/mapper/store-ext3fs

    5. Then if you want to get the space back, that was previously used for that logical volume and the information in the links already posted aren't enough, this thread might help.

    Can't unmount the ext3fs partition. I get an error that says:
    "/bin/sh: unmount: not found"
    Any idea what's wrong?

    The command is umount not unmount.
