[beagleboard] Re: mkfs.msdos

After partioning the 4 GB Kingston card and executing the command:

mkfs.msdos -F 32 /dev/sda1p1 -n LABEL

i got this response:

/dev/sda1p1: no such file or directory

Please advise.

just use /dev/sda1 not sda1p1. Actually, I think it suppose to be sdb1 and sdb2. But first you have to make sure that you already have sda1 and sda2 by repluging the SD card.

In fact it's because you're doing the fdisk on /dev/sda1 where it
should be fdisk /dev/sda.

I had the same exact problem the other day. The two partitions you
were incorrectly creating were in /dev/sda1 -- thus the p1 and p2.

If you do correctly (fdisk /dev/sda) it should work and you should
have /dev/sda1 and /dev/sda2 in the end.

Hope this helps !
