USB memory stick setup
I'm new to this. I need some help. I hope you could give it to me.
I've been installing RH 7.2 in a Compaq laptop, PMMX, 4Mb RAM, CD, FD, USB. It works fine, but I need to interchange information through USB memory stick, but I don't get it works.
What should I do?
What modules do I need to install? Where do I find them? What do I need for getting USB memoty stick working properly?
Thank you for your help.
well if your setup correctly then all you have to do is plug it in and type then yau can use it then type before removing the thumb drive
but that is in the perfact install
1. first you will have to add a line to /etc/fstab which will look like this
if that is the device (/dev/sda1)that it is reconized as in "dmesg" (kernel log) then make the directory /mnt/usb 2. then you will also need support in the kernel for 'usb mass storage' devices!
/dev/sda1 /mnt/usb auto noauto,umask=0077,user,rw 0 0
3. start at the top one at a time till it works. :wink:
By default, Red Hat loads usb-uhci and usbcore on startup. But you'll need to load an additional module called usb-storage in order to get a flash drive working. just type:
Next, create a mount point for the USB flash drive, which includes a directory for the mount point. So go to the /mnt sub-directory and create this sub-directory.
Edit the /etc/fstab file and add the following line:
#/dev/sda1 /mnt/flashdrive auto user,noauto,umask=0 0 0
Then type the dmesg command
Try to mount the /mnt/flashdrive directory
