    I'm looking for a way to copy a directory hierarchy from a Compact FLASH card to a YAFFS partition on the device from lolo.

    This does not seem to be possible,

    1) "cp" won't copy a directory (recursive or otherwise)

    2) mkdir is not implemented, so I can't do it by hand.

    Is there a way to mkdir or cp recursively?

    Sorry Helment,

    If you review the cp command in the LoLo Command Description Manual, you will see the following:

    This command does [b]not[/b] work on directories.

    We do not support a way to do recursive copies in LoLo.
