USB Flash Drive Mount Prob.
Here's my little perdicament: I just recently installed Slackware 10.2 on my computer. I have been trying all day to get my USB Flash Drive to work (at leat, also get the USB ports to work in general). Now, this is what I intempted to do at first (commands in order):
lsmod | more
/dev/sda1 /mnt/usbstick vfat user,noauto,umask=0 0 0
tail -s 3 -f /var/log/messages
Here is where I obtained the information in which I based these commands on (with minor alterations):
Once this, and many of the other suggestions on this forum have failed, I have yet to get my Flash drive to work. Now, let me add, that when i try to mount the drive via "system" I receive a window with the message, "mount mount point /mnt/usbstick does not exist". The Flash Drive is finally being picked up by the computer but still can't mount it. My question here is: does anyone have any idea as to what I'm doing wrong and what I can do to fix it? (Without a working USB port means no internet. Which means I'll be in a state of hyperventelation soon if I can't get the wifi to work on my Linux machine. :-x)
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Especially the punching bag in which I have been relieving stress upon. :mrgreen:
