mknod: Operation not permitted


Hi All,

I am unable to create pipe using mknod on fat32 file system. I am getting an error which says "Operation not permitted".

Using sudo didn't help.

Request you to help me to solve this issue.

Regards,
Shilpa

fat32 doesn't support special files...

Can't be done.

As far as I know, NONE of the Microsoft filesystems do.

All I need is to receive data from one process continuously and write the same to another process. Could you please suggest me is there any other mechanism for my requirement which works on fat32?

None.

Use a Linux native filesystem. Usually /tmp is a native filesystem (might even be tmpfs...) and that will allow named pipes/sockets.
