I have a problem with mounting pen drive using udev. I am working in an arm development platform and installed udev successfully. My udev rules are as follow.
BUS=="usb", ID=="1-1", KERNEL=="sd?1", NAME="pen1"
What I want here is to assign node "pen1" whenever a pen is mounted to port "1-1". udev works fine but when I mount using "mount /dev/pen1 /mnt" and access the content, the filenames appear corrupted and show only 8 bits.
eg: myfilename.mp3 is replaced with myfile~e.mp3
apparently I can't use other fs. anyway I used udev-110 which is a quite older version. Can't it be a problem?
Yeah I noticed that and wondered why. It's usually not necessary to write udev rules to mount an external drive. The older version could be the problem. I'm using version 172-1. Are you using a very old version of Ubuntu? You ought to be able to install a more recent version and see if that fixes the problem. Updating udev may involve updating a lot of its dependencies.
What makes you think you can't use another fs on the pen drive?
