ls command


If I do this :

# mount /dev/hda2 /mnt/hda2

for example, then :

# cd /mnt/hda2
# ls -lF


there are no files listed.



I'm using Puppy linux. It doesn't matter whether it's hda2, hda4 etc.. However I do ls no files are listed.

For example, on hda4 I have Fedora installed, but Puppy lists nothing on hda4.

Why is this ?

What he said. Then, perhaps use df to check whether the partition is actually mounted.

Are you sure it is mounting successfully? run "mount" to see what is actually mounted.

Note that mounting often requires root privileges--but one would expect an error message if that were the issue.

WHAT he said? what does he say ?

mount /dev/hda2 /mnt/hda2

where is "what he said...!!!"
there is no filesystem given
and of course as root if nothing special is applied...
and the just enter mount to the if something is mounted is of course also a good idea.

Try mount with the -v (verbose) option. It will tell you if the mount was successful, it will also tell more if something goes wrong.

Sorry, should use proper English... intended as an expression of agreement with your suggestion.
