It all started with an intent to install Link2SD to my in-car Android audio system. Repartitioned SD card into FAT32 + Ext2, but something went wrong ("Mount script cannot created" by Link2SD, etc.). So I've done some research and eventually messed something up and now I've got 2 partitions mounted into the same directory! My SD is /dev/block/mmcblk1 with /dev/block/mmcblk1p1 for FAT32 partition and /dev/block/mmcblk1p2 for Ext2. mount says both partitions are mounted to the same /sdcard/external_sd location. I was trying to locate a place where these 2 mountpoints are coming from but with no success. I know there's no /etc/fstab at Android, but /etc/vold.fstab has nothing about mmcblk1 or /sdcard/external_sd. I've looked through all init.*.rc scripts in root but found nothing either.

So where is a place that mounts those 2 partitions??? I've got no more thoughts left except for grep -nwr / -e external_sd, but it takes forever to complete and it's not that easy to surf results with touchscreen only...

The system is HiCES: Android 4.0.something with LOTS of stuff on top; quite buggy and unstable - not sure that anyone has experienced same problems on the same system :)
