Re: Fstab identifier for USB 2.0 HDD

Make sure these modules are loaded :
ehci-hcd, usb-storage, sd_mod.
Now you should have /dev/sdaX devices, so add them in fstab like your ide/scsi disc partitions.

hint: This is not arch specific. A quick googling should give you answers quickly smile.

Re: Fstab identifier for USB 2.0 HDD

big_smile  smile Thanks for pertinent reply zen_gorilla

    One quick further question...since I have no IDE/SCSI entries in my fstab I would appreciate a format example for such entries.

Have a happy thanksgiving :!:

You definately have such entries. Take a look in your /etc/fstab. However an example is:

/dev/hda1  /boot    ext2     defaults     0  0

This is part of my arch linux fstab file.  It contains no data
such as you describe .../dev/hda  etc, and since it has distinctive entries in the file for the usual Hard Drives, I have a suspicion it has  distinctive entries for USB and CDRW entries.

     I can find (so far) no examples of USB entries nor CDRW entries in fstab nor any reference to mnt file entries.

   Open to further suggestions....

Re: Fstab identifier for USB 2.0 HDD

big_smile  smile zen:
     This my lilo file:
#
# /etc/lilo.conf
#

boot=/dev/discs/disc0/disc
# This line often fixes L40 errors on bootup
# disk=/dev/discs/disc0/disc bios=0x80

default=arch
timeout=50
lba32
prompt

image=/boot/vmlinuz
        label=arch
        root=/dev/discs/disc0/part3
        read-only
        append="hde=ide-scsi ide=reverse"
#other=/dev/discs/disc0/part1
#        label=dos

# End of file
     Please note the entry ...append=...
     Normally this  enters the CDRW data into fstab and it is usually detailed as a scsi entry along with scsi entry for USB hdd if I remember correctly.

big_smile  smile Zen:

     Followed your info regarding the modules and the entry in fstab and have successfully utilized my USB drive as sda1.

     Thanks much for the guidance and hope this post helps someone else.
