Hello, just a qick question… how do I format a USB pin in suse 11.1? Thanks in advance
Same as any other disk device.
what and answer, thanks for being so helpful… I thought this forum was serious…
Sorry, no need to be disappointed. It is very difficult to assess the level of knowledge of someone who asks something, telling so few about himself, his experience, what he tried until the moment he decided to ask here, etc. I assumed that you did create partitions and created file systems on disks earlier, but only failed to see that an USB mass storage device only mimics a disk and thus can be handled the same.
For more general information I refer to:SDB:Basics of partitions, filesystems, mount points - openSUSE
I do not know if you want to repartition the device. In any case you could use YaST > System > Partitioning. Choose for the correct device there (make no error here, else you could destroy another partition) and create a new file sysem on it. Better tell it not to mount it anywhere. You could with advantage use the option to put a label on it. Thus on dynamic mounting, this name will be used for the mountpoint
Any more questions (better ask before destroying something), please come back, but do not be angry because somebody at the other side of the world does not understand everything you think, do or suppose as being normal from the 18 words you used.
