Display content of SD card?


Hello
quick question: How to display the contents of an SD card?
It is a SanDisk 1 GB inserted into laptop side slot.
Somewhere in dev or media folder?

I think that all the hip young distros are putting such devices in /run/media/[username]/ these days.

You could try running fdisk -l as root with the device inserted. That ought to reveal its location. So too should dmesg.

I would have said
Code:
sudo fdisk -l
too (or use su if needed) with what info you gave?

Bad advice. The /media/disk folder is used by 4MLinux. See, for example, http://4mlinux.com/help.txt

Good advice. Unfortunately, new versions of the fdisk tool also list all ram-disks. It's usually quite a long list. To avoid this:
Code:
busybox fdisk -l
or
Code:
fdisk -l | grep sd

Can you see your card? If not, try to execute (the 4MLinux specific) command:
Code:
mountall
See: the REMOVABLE DISK section of http://4mlinux.com/faq.txt

thanks for replies.

output of fdisk -l is:

(sorry for screenshot, I saw http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ns-4175558298/ but did not manage to copy&paste text)
So yes, seems to list all ramdisks.
But beside them there is only the dev/sda1 HDD.


mountall did not seem to change anything.
(output of fdisk is unchanged and nothing seems changed in graphical file explorer)


sudo fdisk -l
command not found

Quote:
(or use su if needed)
su fdisk -l
unknown user fdisk
(hm, might have to look up what "su" command is/how it works)


mount -l


hm!

Try:
Code:
udev
If this doesn't help, then your card is not supported out of the box. I guess that what you need are additional kernel modules.
You can find them both on the 4MLinux installation CD and online (4mlinux.com/download.html).

In my opinion, installing additional drivers makes sense only if your 4MLinux is installed to a hard disk drive.

PS.
Choose "ScreenShooter" from the wbar launcher. Next, if you click on an opened window, the screenshot of this window (and nothing more) will be taken.

FWIW laptop card readers often are not generic USB devices as one might expect, I recall I had to dig deep into kernel config to enable the CD card reader driver for my Thinkpad.

I agree. Nevertheless he should try additional kernel modules first. The total size of kernel modules available out of the box is about 12 MB, while on the 4MLinux installation CD you can find ~ 28MB.
