trying to mount usb key [SOLVED]

hello there,
lately i encounter a small problem : i cannot mount my usb key. i suspect an unproper kernel configuration (i have a self-compiled emission6 kernel).
whenever i try to mount my usb key, i get :

# mount /dev/uba1 /media/usb
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/uba1,
       missing codepage or other error
       In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
       dmesg | tail  or so
# dmesg | tail
bttv0: timeout: drop=12 irq=18792701/18792701, risc=1fa4e024, bits: HSYNC FDSR
bttv0: reset, reinitialize
bttv0: PLL: 28636363 => 35468950 . ok
bttv0: PLL can sleep, using XTAL (28636363).
FAT: codepage cp850 not found
FAT: codepage cp850 not found
FAT: codepage cp850 not found
FAT: codepage cp850 not found
FAT: codepage cp850 not found
FAT: codepage cp850 not found

indeed, in my kernel conf, i have Files Systems > DOS/FAT/NT Filesystems > (850) Default codepage for FAT

what am i supposed to set this default codepage to ? or do you know about another workaround ?

thx

Re: trying to mount usb key [SOLVED]

Having it as default isn't enough, make sure it's compiled in kernel:
File Systems -> Native Language Support ->  Codepage 850 (Europe)

# mount -t vfat  /dev/uba1 /media/usb

make sure /uba1 is indeed the correct device as well smile (watch your /dev list as you plug in your usb key.)

Re: trying to mount usb key [SOLVED]
