USB mounting on RH 9.0
i'm a newbie (been using linux for 5 days! ). i researched on mounting a flask disk on redhat 9 on the net for 2-3 days already. the problem is, it only worked on my own Muvo 2.0 (128MB), that means it recognizes mine alone. i tried mounting other flashdisk including Muvo owned by my friends, but to no avail.i tried the follwing commands:
"/dev/sda1 /mnt/usb auto noauto,user,rw 0 0
i created a text file that contains:
created a mount point:
"/mnt/usb" or a "usb" folder
still i tried this...
then plugged the USB..
%mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /mnt/usbhd
and i got the error w/c says something like "bash: %mount not a command"???
still tried another...
cat /proc/pci|grep -i -usb
and i got a message about VIA blah..blah..blah...
i tried the follwing after...
"modprobe sg" <- modprobe not a command????
the Q is, will anyone patient enough to tell me about this???
i am planning to use RH 9 linux as a server for our website project...thanx guys!!!!
OK, we'll try the obvious first (just incase)
you did type mount (not %mount) if the command was copied then % could well have just been the shell prompt like ">"
you are the root user for this ?
The commands may not be in your PATH as a non-root user
( ) to show your path
if they were I would expect permission denied or 'only root can do that'
type just after putting the stick in to show what device the usb stick has been assigned to (there's a lot of output you just want the end of it....
Sorry if you know all that , worth checking though
PS, I don't think you're supposed to cross-post here (the board)
Just come across this in Redhat group....
thanx...i'll try this and i'll be back.. :lol:
