Folks trying to setup my ftp directories again after a reload of DDWRT. Running R7800 with Kongs latest stable version.

Can someone please explain what the following output is when running an fdisk -l please. Specifically the /dev/mtdblock partition table. Never recall seeing these issues before

Thank you

There's nothing wrong w/ that output. Indeed, none of those partitions contain a partition table. They contain images, which you can dump w/ the following command.

Code:
cat /proc/mtd
