I've plugged in my USB drive to move Windows fonts to Sabayon and the drive is not being recognized. The light on the drive is flashing but nothing showing up on the desktop or in the mnt directory like it does with PCLinuxOS. Am I doing something wrong or is there a special command that I need to enter?
Find your flash drive by the size and name. The filesystem should be /dev/sda, if you only plugged one in. On the right hand side of that you should see a column named "Mount On". Just navigate to the location and you'll have you info presented. If it's not mounted, try this.
The drive is a Fat32 that I use with Windows. I got to the part where I entered mount /dev/sda and it sent an error message back to me (by the way, what does /dev mean?). I'm going to reboot with the thumbdrive in and see if it comes up.............that didn't work.
When I plug the drive in, the light comes on as if it is reading the drive...blinks about 6 times....stops....then blinks another 6 times....then stops. Then no more USB light. Nothing on the desktop either.
Dev stands for Device.
Sda stands for Scalabe Disk Array, I think.
So.. anything in the /dev/ should be a device or device drivers.
Please, someone, correct me if I'm wrong.
Can you please post your info you get when you type in df -hi
