Mounting external usb flash drive

hi fellers ,

i have mounted a external USB Flash Stick fat32 on a FreeBSD machine as follows :slightly_smiling_face:

  1. Create a folder in /media/ named usb to mount to mkdir /media/usb
  2. go in the dev folder where the usb stick is under the name : da0s1
    mount_msdosfs /dev/da0s1 /media/usb

That works under a installed original UNIX Freebsd OS.

The same under nomadbsd failed by : permission denied.

su is required indeed. in nomadbsd user is root. so why permission denied ???


Please make sure that the /media/usb directory is owned by the user who wants to mount the device.

everthing works fine. but on a external HD. no flash.
