I am using a custom operating distribution that has all the necessary modules to support USB during installation.
The operating system boots up from a usb device, but I want to check the media.
I have tried
mknod /dev/sda1 b 8 1
with no sucess. I have also tried
mknod /dev/uba b 180 0
When I try to mount the media I get an error along the lines of no such device.
Am I doing anything wrong.should I use
/dev/sda insted of /dev/sda1.
