mkfs.vfat doesn't seem to accept a allocation unit size, any other way to do
My car stereo accepts only FAT32 with 4096 as allocation size.
Which ebuild is your mkfs.vfat from? The manpage for mkfs.vfat from
sys-fs/dosfstools suggests that you want "-s 3 -S 512". That gets you
2^3 sectors per cluster and 512-byte sectors.
Thanks, that worked. Though -s 8 and -S 512, because 512 * 8 = 4096.
