View Full Version : How to mount USB stick after HDD install

06-29-2005, 05:27 PM
I have Knoppix installed on HDD. While my USB sticks / Card readers are seen and mounted correctly when booting from CD, I cannot use them with the HDD installation. After attaching them, they appear correctly under /proc/bus/usb/devices. How can I manually create a device node and mount them?

Thanks, Joachim

Plug in the drive and do dmesg |grep sda and dmesg |grep uba
It should tell where the drive is attached to, I have it at sda1.
If nothing shows, try sdb and so on.

Next add a line to /etc/fstab for it. This is what I have:
/dev/sda1 /pen vfat noauto,users,exec,noatime,umask=000 0 0

Then make a mountpoint:
mkdir /pen
chgrp users /pen
chown 770 /pen

You can of course name the mountpoint what you want or put it under /mnt/, I just prefer this.

To mount it do mount /pen
