Hammer How to Thumb Drive
You can add a USB Thumb Drive to your Hammer pretty easily. There are a few things you have to have in your kernel. Your Thumb Drive will be recognized as a SCSI device, probably /dev/sda1, if it is the only SCSI type device you have. When the usb-storage module loads, it will show which SCSI device you Thumb Drive is.
You must have:
- USB Core
- USB Storage
- SCSI, including generic support.
configured in your kernel.
One way to get the USB Thumb Drive recognized and mounted is:
Add the necessary commands to the inittab file:
- cd buildroot/target/device/Samsung/Hammer/target_skeleton
- edit the inittab.
- Add these commands right below the jffs2 line:
null::sysinit:/sbin/modprobe usb-storage null::sysinit:/bin/sleep 10
This will load the usb-storage module and wait for it to settle down.
Now you have to fix up the mount point where you want the Thumb Drive to appear. You can add a new mount point by editing the buildroot/target/device/Samsung/Hammer/device_table.txt file. If you want to mount your Thumb Drive at /opt (recommended for starters) then add the following line to device_table.txt:
/opt d 755 0 0 - - - - -
Now it is time to add the Thumb Drive to your file system. When you build your rootfs, the /opt directory will be created for you with the permissions you set.
Now edit buildroot/target/device/Samsung/Hammer/target_skeleton/etc/fstab file to add your mount point as follows:
/dev/sda1 /opt ext2 defaults 0 0
You can setup your Thumb drive for any mount point you want using this procedure. This allows the Thumb Drive to be automatically setup and mounted for use.
