You're right to format the card; the image mount should mount the partitions from the image as loop devices - the temp directories. But for some reason this doesn't work for me on the Dreamplug, only on an Ubuntu desktop. Don't see what's up here.

Anyway, I couldn't get the copied partitions to boot in any case - I always got errors, with this first:
'Could not update ICE authority file /var/lib/gdm3/.Iceauthority'

No real clues on this one, but I put the image on a bigger card, then cut it down to fit on a smaller one, and then it worked. Is there something in the image that's not carried across to a formatted SD card with 'cp -R'?

Try 'cp -a' or better still read the man page :)

This thread (http://www.newit.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=2057.0) suggests changing u-boot variables, namely the arcNumber, for v2.5. If attempting to put GuiPlug 2.7 on the internal SD, are these still valid suggestions?

Whether you have to change arcNumber (or machid) depends on which uboot version you are using with which kernel.
