Where can I download or get the msdosfs command
Hardware Posted by Maria on Wednesday October 01, @04:50PM
from the dept.
I need to mount an USB storage on FreeBSD 4.11 release. I had read some topics about it and they mention the command msdosfs. But I don't have this command in my FreeBSD, so, where can I download it? and then, what I have to do to install it? I don't know very well this operating system. Thanks a lot Maria Beatriz

    Hi Maria, I believe that the FreeBSD-4.11 standard install included a mount command for the msdos filesystem in the /sbin directory. Look for the file "mount_msdos."

    Using the "-t msdos" flag with the standard mount command should invoke the proper mount command.

    Most usb devices are recognized as direct access devices- usually da0 or da1. So the commands below should mount the device as long as it's compatible with 4.11.


    mkdir /mnt/usb
    mount -t msdos /dev/da0s1 /mnt/usb


    Cheers,
    Jason
