Help with moving apps to SD card using LInk2SDSupport

    OK, before you point me off to another thread, I've searched, read through and divulged huge amounts of information:confused:. I really have tried to scour the forum for this info but to no avail, :banghead: so...
    Some info about the phone and how far I've got:
    Phone: GT-S5839i
    Software: 2.3.6 Gingerbread (BB: NELD1, Kernel: dpi@DELL138#1)

    • I've rooted the phone
    • partitioned the SD card (8Gb) with minitool 6Gb and 2Gb both primary
    • loaded Link2DS and set-up the 2nd partition by selecting FAT32/FAT16 option.
    (so I've managed a fair chunk of the work!)

    I've managed to move a few apps to the SD card and noticed they all go to the 6Gb partition. When I check the settings in Link2SD it shows the 2nd partition as ext2.

    When I try and move more apps (you tube for example but it happens with most others) across I get the following error message:

    pkg: /data/app/com .google.android.youtube-1.apk Failure

    Q1: Do I have LInk2SD setup correctly (please let me know if I need to supply more info)?
    Q2: Any help on the failed install message?

    Appreciate any help on offer (PLEASE don't send me to another thread!!)
