    mount flash drive in HDK


    I'm using an Hardware Development Kit for a Freescale 8548...

    I can't figure out how to mount my flash drive with it. Kernel version 2.6.11...only the terminal, running in windows w/PuTTY

    i don't have /media, and /mnt doesn't show usbfs as an option. lsusb also doesn't work, but if i do

    / # ls /dev | grep sda
    sda
    sda1
    sda2
    sda3
    sda4
    sda5
    sda6
    sda7

    --sda options show up.

    / # ls
    bin home lost+found proc sys var
    dev lib mnt root tmp
    etc linuxrc opt sbin usr


    / # cd mnt
    /mnt # ls
    cdrom floppy nfs rwfs src


    any suggestions?

    At first put your flash drive into usbport.
    then go to GNOME MENU=> system tools=> Hardware browser

    and find out the device. like /dev/sda1.

    then
    # mount /dev/sda1 /misc
    # cd /misc
    #ls -l

    and you see , your flash drive is working now.

    I only have a terminal...no menu, system tools folder, etc. We're using PuTTY if you're familiar with that kind of interface...

    use

    fdisk -l

    then show details.

    and find out the device. like /dev/sda1.

    then
    # mount /dev/sda1 /misc
    # cd /misc
    #ls -l

    and you see , your flash drive is working now.
