I read some resources about the mount command for mounting devices on Linux, but none of them is clear enough (at least for me).
On the whole this what most guides state:
$ mount (lists all currently mounted devices) $ mount -t type device directory (mounts that device) for example (to mount a USB drive): $ mount -t vfat /dev/sdb1 /media/disk
What's not clear to me:
How do I know what to use for "device" as in
$ mount -t type device directory? That is, how do I know that I should use "/dev/sdb1" in this command
$ mount -t vfat /dev/sdb1 /media/diskto mount my USB drive?
what does the "-t" parameter define here? type?
I read the man page (
$ man mount) a couple of times, but I am still probably missing something. Please clarify.
