    Hi there,

    I'm planning to remaster the DBAN-Wipe-System. I want to mount a USB-Device to copy the log-files to USB. The other plan is to automatically hotplug-wipe disks.

    What means:

    Thus, your problem is that recent DBAN kernels do not recognize partitions and they do not add hotplug /dev nodes after the userland is started. Notice how mdev or udev is used to populate /dev.

    You need to enable partition support in the kernel config, and cut-and-paste a complete udev configuration
    Has someone got any hints or Ideas?

    Perhaps, the information that I have given are not detailed enough.

    DBAN is a system which boots from CD and wipes disks by various algorithms.

    DBAN 2.2.6 uses the buildroot buildsystem, the busybox and uclibc-libraries.

    At the moment, DBAN 2.2.6 is not able to copy the documentation-files, which are in a virtual filesystem in /var/log to a USB-Drive.

    The USB-Drive cannot be mounted because the Kernel is not configured to do that.

    What do I need to automatically mount hotplug-usb-devices, how can mdev be used, where and how is it configured?
