Repartition my external HD so that i have a 5GB FAT32 partition
Problem: When i type fdisk -l i dont see any devices with sdaX
Additional info: I will be using qtparted to resize the NTFS partition and make a FAT32 Parition. I have my /etc/fstab set with the following:
/dev/sda1 /mnt/external ntfs user,nls=utf8,umask=0222 0 0
and when it boots i get the message:
/mnt/external: device /dev/sda1 cannot be found
When i try and mount it i get this:
I also get an error message something like this:
/dev/null: file already exists
I dont know if the two are related or not.....Can someone give me a starting point for this?
I tried searching the forum, but couldnt find anything that solved my problem
in /etc/rc.conf is auto loading of modules yes or no ?
if yes may be you need to write a udev rule
http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Usi … _udev_rule
what you may also need is this
udevinfo -a -p /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:10.4/usb1/1-1
check out what i learned bout writing a rule

Thanks for the info rayjgu3.....I created a udev rule in /etc/udev/rules.d/00.rules and restarted udev.. I think it worked, but is there a way i can find out for sure?
can you mount ,read & write to device?
if so its working
what rule did you make ?
sorry i havent got back to you sooner but i cant spend as much time as id like here in forums
if you have solved the problem post answer here then edit the subject " [SOLVED] "
sorry, forgot to do that on this thread!!.....I can read/write to it fine!!
