My aim is to create a bootable SD card with Arch Linux, for my Raspberry Pi.
I have been trying to follow this guide without success.
So far I have:
- A working Arch Linux virtual box, as my host is OSX
- Formatted the SDcard to FAT before the process
- Mounted my SDcard to and it is visible by the VM as storage
I go to start following the guide and things start going wrong.
Unsure on how to 'get' at the device that is available I ran
/dev/disk/by-label and saw my device
@RECOVERY which is the correct label. Great.
I then executed step 2 of the guide, as my SDcard is formatted.
mkfs.vfat /dev/disk/RECOVERY.. the only thing that happened is that my SDcard is no longer visible in
/dev/disk/by-label ! My assumption is that I have in some way mounted the device but I am now out of my depth, even after googling for mounted devices/partitions I remain lost.
What is my equivalent of
/dev/sdX1 and how do I complete step 3 and 4 of the guide?
