"mount: relocation error: mount: undefined symbol: blkid_known_fstype"
The usb stick is readable on several other Linux systems so the stick is fine.
There was a problem with a 2GB usb stick that I was using. It was pre-formatted when bought to have two partitions; the first of about 1mb, the second with the rest of the 2GB. This stick cannot be seen by DSL.
Other usb sticks are fine - though the device name of the usb stick can be variable!
I put the stick in a usb port and use "dmesg" from a shell to see what device it is seen as (usually /dev/sdc1).
I have created an empty partition on the DSL computer as "/usbstick".
I then simply mount the usb device to the partition with the command "sudo mount /dev/sdc1 /usbstick"
I can see the usb stick now.
I have the same problem with a USB stick. I think the stick uses UDRW technology, so it appears as a 2 seperate drives in windows. In DSL it appears as sda1, sda2, sda3, sda4.
You said you solved the problem by creating an "empty partition". I don't know much about Linux, how do I create an empty partition?
What do I have to type in to create an empty partition?
