I have a new video card installed. Linux will only boot to terminal mode. I downloaded a driver for the video card on another machi8ne,
and copied it to a thumb-drive. I have tried everything I could find in Google to mount the thumb-drive so I could run the driver, and for the life of me, I just can't do it! Please, somebody, tell me in words of one syllable how to mount the thumb drive.
Its name in Dolphin on this other PCLOS computer is "Kingston", and its full name on the terminal only machine appears to be "kingston optical drive" if I remember correctly. (I can't remember how I found that out.) I really don't have any hair left to tear out, so Please
I would tend to do the following ...
run a blkidid command to identify the existing partitions.
plug in the removable device
run the blkid command a second time after the removable device is inserted
the difference will be the partitions on the removable device.
then use the pmount command (as user) to mount the preferred partition
when finished use the pumount command to unmount the device.
The blkid command:blkid -c /dev/null
The Pmount commandpmount <device>
The Pumount commandpumount <device>
### device = /dev/sdXY
the device will be mounted as /media/sdXY where X & Y are drive/partition designation
The Pmount command can also specify under what 'name' the device is mounted, if required pmount <device> <name>
devices are mounted under /media and under user control when using pmount.
there is no need to create the mount point when using pmount as it creates it automatically
