how to mount the multiple partitions of a pendrive / flashcard?


Hello,

I did this with :
Code:
cfdisk /dev/sdd1
I made two partitions as below

Code:
3. Partition Compact Flash

Make two partitions on CF (use linux fdisk or anything else that is able to make linux filesystem)

   1. at least 8MB FAT
   2. rest ext2 (recommended) or ext3 - at least 50MB

Copy vmlinuz, initrd, linexec and params.txt to FAT partition.
Uncompress rootfs.tar.bz2 to ext2 partition.
(command details at ref. [1])
but :

fdisk -l
says only one /dev/sdd1

not sdd1a
not sdd1a


How can I mount those 2 created partitions, since they are hidden under /dev/sdd1 ?

Is it a bug of the kernel?

That's strange ??? I believe that your pendrive should be /dev/sdd (not with digit '1' following). And the partitions on it should be /dev/sdd1 , /dev/sdd2 , /dev/sdd3 and so on.

Your mistake was specifying a partition and not the drive i.e. cfdisk /dev/sdb1 and not cfdisk /dev/sdb. I assume your CF drive is actually sdb from the output of the fdisk command but use the actual device ID. Once you specify the correct device i.e. /dev/sdb you should be able to create sdb1 and sdb2. I would delete the existing partitions and start over.
