Mount Mybook Drive On Elive 4.0

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to mount a Mybook 320GB External drive in Elive?

Here are my fstables:

/dev/sda2	   /	   reiserfs		defaults		0	   1
/dev/sda1 none swap sw 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
none /sys sysfs defaults 0 0
/dev/sdb1 /home reiserfs defaults 0 2
/dev/sdc1 /var reiserfs defaults 0 2
/dev/scd0 /cdrom iso9660 defaults,noauto,ro,user 0 0


sys /sys sysfs defaults 0 0

Problem is that I cant find a mountpoint that will work

- Connected the HDD.

- Run dmesg and look for messages related to the drive (usb-storage, etc). The later messages should include the device node (e.g., sdd).

- mount $DEVICE $MOUNTPOINT where $DEVICE is the path to a partition on the drive (e.g., /dev/sdd1) and $MOUNTPOINT is anything at all.

Thanks, will check into that ;)

Here is my dmsg output which is relevent to the setup:

I'm assuming sdd1 - but not sure of the mount type can you help me with that: I was using webmin to do it, but think it didnt have the sdd mount point

I need to make a block device for sdd1, because apparently it is not here - how can I do this easily

OK Webmin was the cause of my confusion - I had to look at the Partition Manager, which showed this:

Location SCSI device D

Cylinders 38913

Size 298.09 GB

Model WD 3200AAJ External

Controller 2

Target 0

Once I fount that, I didnt realize that the mybook was mounted as a vfat device, so I mounted it as msdos and changed the permissions to my UID and my GID.

It showed that it was SCSI Device D Win95 32LBA, and I was trying to mount it as EXT3, and I did NOT realize what device SCSI device D was, until I looked at the partition manager - Then, BANG: Webmin mounted her :)

Go ME - Webmin messed me up, but she will mount automatically ;)

Thanks for the info on dmesg
