Im new here and very new to linux.
Im just having some problems accessing a USB flash drive. I have been trying for days with no luck.
Im using DSL on a Live CD.
Im trying to get my WIFI working (i have an internal wifi card on my laptop).
In order to do this I believe I have to install the drivers for it and use ndiswrapper (came with DSL) so linux can use them.
I have the drivers on a USB stick. (Atheros drivers).
Now my problem is accessing the USB stick in linux.
Do I need to format the stick in any special way for linux to see it?
When I boot DSL before the 'desktop' loads it saids 'found usb storage device' (or something to that effect). does this mean it is already mounted?
I used the 'dmesg' command it is saids that my usb is on sda3.
I tried to mount it manually using:
mount /dev/sda3 /mnt/pen/
but i get the error message:
"mount: relocation error: mount: undefined symbol: blkid_known_fstype"
Ive also navigated to /mnt/sda3 but the directory is empty.
The device is listed under the lsusb command.
I dont know what else to try. Thanks in advance for any help you guys can offer me.
