Ony one parition on boot.


I run Debin beaglebone 4.4.36-ti-r72 on Beaglebone Black Rev C.

I want to mount the FAT partition I see in Windows, to /media/folder_name in BBB.

Sending “lsblk” command will return:

mmcblk1boot0 179:8 0 4M 1 disk
mmcblk1boot1 179:16 0 4M 1 disk
mmcblk1 179:0 0 3.6G 0 disk
`-mmcblk1p1 179:1 0 3.6G 0 part /

So I don’t see anything about the FAT partition.

Can you please tell me what I have to do to access FAT partition from BBB?

There is no FAT partition in the images since . . . over a year now.

So on the new installed version, how can you tell me how to access a partition, from BBB on Windows 7, with write permissions?

Well on the new version it's a raw read-only *.img file...

I guess the better question, what do you want to do?

If you just want to transfer files over from windows, use the free version of:



I use a combination of an NFS share, and a samba share. So . . .

Linux server == NFS share to BBB, and Samba share to Windows workstation.

What this nets me is the ability to edit files from Windows directly on the BBB. Or more correctly on the Linux server, which also hosts a share to the BBB.

Thanks for your prompt answers.

The idea is to access a part of BBB, anywhere, without any other software needed.

I wanted to have some configuration file on that external partition, with easy access for anyone who want to modify some parameters.
