- an old Pentium PC, strong enough to run the latest Debian 8
- no GUI (Graphical User Interface)
- no automount of a USB stick
- grep "SCSI removable disk" /var/log/messages
- can you find [sda] or [sdb]? I got [sdb].
- mkdir ~/myflashdrive
- i.e. create a folder in your home directory
- mount -t vfat -o rw,users /dev/sdb1 ~/myflashdrive
Now you can enter ~/myflashdrive. cd to the directory you created earlier.
When not needing the stick anymore move away from the folder ~/myflashdrive
- cd ~
- umount ~/myflashdrive
