Thread: Can't mount into the /opt directory

  1. #1

    Can't mount into the /opt directory

    So I followed the tutorials, to set up my router. And it was fine untill I try mount my two partitions: one of swap (this is correct and working) and one for the system but is not working.
    mount /dev/discs/disc0/part1 /opt
    And it's failed to mount. My parameters:

    [admin@(none) root]$ free
    total used free shared buffers
    Mem: 30084 14308 15776 0 1700
    Swap: 522104 0 522104
    Total: 552188 14308 537880

    [admin@(none) root]$ fdisk -l

    mount /dev/discs/disc0/part1 /opt
    while [ $i -le 30 ]
    if [ -d /opt/etc ]
    sleep 1
    i=`expr $i + 1`

    # Activate swap
    swapon /dev/discs/disc0/part2

    # Run all active services - active means starts with S

    Not sure if it makes any difference but try:
    mount /dev/scsi/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/part1 /opt

    At least, I formated my partition 4 or 5 times (once I unmounted and formated my PC to ext3), and now when I formated once again, as soon as possible I tryed mount it, and it is good :-)
    Thanks guys to help me, I don't know what is the problem, but now is working. ( modify my pre boot file, with these line:
    insmod scsi_mod && insmod sd_mod && insmod usb-storage)

    And now it's working :-)
    [admin@(none) root]$ mount
    /dev/root on / type squashfs (ro)
    none on /dev type devfs (rw)
    proc on /proc type proc (rw)
    ramfs on /tmp type ramfs (rw)
    usbfs on /proc/bus/usb type usbfs (rw)
    /dev/discs/disc0/part1 on /opt type ext3 (rw)
