Re: Mounting USB drives on a "read-only-rootfs" based system

Hi,
you can adjust the mount behaviour for example in your udev mount script
(if you use udev).

If you have a fixed name/mountpoint for your media you can pre-create
that folder (for example /media/data-logging) and let udev's mount.sh
mount media which matches your criteria to that path.

kind regards,
richard

Hello,



New to the list here, so I’m sorry if this question has been asked
before, but I couldn’t find a direct answer to it.



I have a yocto image that was built using the following bb script line:
IMAGE_FEATURES += " read-only-rootfs".



As this image eventually resides on a static flash device, it must be
read-only. However, the system hardware supports removable media (SD
card and USB drives), and I’d like to be able to mount and write to
those removable drives / partitions for data logging purposes. What
needs to be done in order to make the /media directory auto-mountable
when a “read-only” image is specified by the build script?



Thanks.
