cannot mount thumb-drive
I have a SanDisk thumb-drive, and I am running Slack 9.1. I mounted it once, but apparently I have made a mistake in my configuration. When I this:
I get an error message saying something to the effect of "/dev/sda is not a recognized block device" . I checked the /dev files, and sda has major number of 8, which I think is correct. I am using the usb-storage module, and it is loaded. I tried running rc.hotplug manually, and I do not get any errors, but it doesn't seem to do anything. Ideas?
mount /dev/sda /mnt/usb
Try /dev/sda1 instead. That always works for me
So far, I get the same error message for /dev/sda1 as for /dev/sda. I think I might have screwed a *.conf file somewhere, but I can't seem to find any errors. I think I'll just re-install all the *.conf files and see what happens...
