[SOLVED] fixed mount point of USB mass storage
« on: July 07, 2014, 11:39:32 AM »
Hi!

I'm just trying to set a fixed mount point for a USB pendrive. As the machine that Core is running on can have multiple pendrives attached and removed, I want a way to set a single one to be mounted on a specific location (or preserve its default location so no other USB will get its name).

Is there some way to do this?

Thanks

Mount by label instead of device.

Hi Mr. Gerald_clark!

Can I do it even with my device NOT appearing on /dev/disk/by-label/ ?

Label the filesystem.

You can use blkid to output the disk with a label. "blkid -lt LABEL=mylabel -o device"
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

Thank you Mr. Curaga and Mr. Gerald_Clark!

Everything is working ok now!

Got the device using

Code: [Select]
blkid -L MY_DEVICE_LABEL
then I mount it in the place that I want.

If you have installed util-linux
Just do:
mount  -L mylabel  my/mount/point
or add to /etc/fstab
"LABEL=mylabel   my/mount/point   auto   defaults 0 0"
and issue a "mount /my/mount/point'

Thank you for your help Mr. Gerald_Clark!

I'm not loading the util-linux, so I kept up with my own shell script.

Thanks!
