/dev/sda2 does not exist.


Earlier today, my slack box was started up again for the first time in a long while. The power went out. Now, when I try to mount my ipod with the following command: "mount /dev/sda2 /mnt/ipod" I get the error: "mount: special device /dev/sda2 does not exist".

I'm wondering, first of all, how can I get around this problem? And second of all, what could have caused this?

Thanks,

Try /dev/uba instead
Just do "mount /mnt/usbdisk", always works for me and it's a default in Slackware

When I tried "mount /mnt/ipod" I got the same error.

I also got the same error when trying /dev/uba.

I now have output from cat /proc/scsi/scsi:

Code:
root@grey-machine:/home/aje# cat /proc/scsi/scsi
Attached devices:
Host: scsi5 Channel: 00 Id: 00 Lun: 00
  Vendor: Apple    Model: iPod             Rev: 1.62
  Type:   Direct-Access                    ANSI SCSI revision: 02
root@grey-machine:/home/aje#
I see scsi5, does this mean I would have to use /dev/sdf? /dev/sdf, /dev/sda, /dev/sdb are all not found.

Try "fdisk -l" and see if it lists the ipod.

Plug the Ipod in and examine the output of dmesg, it should recognise that the ipod has been plugged in and give you a device that you can mount
