What packages do I need to allow me to mount a USB drive in ArchLinux from the command line? What command do I use? Under Ubuntu these things happen automatically, but it's about time I learned how to do it like a pro
mount /dev/sdXY /path/to/location/of/your/choice
Where XY is the sticks device node and partition (e.g. /dev/sdb1)
fdisk -l to see what your USB device is called. Then make a directory -
mkdir /mnt/my_usb - and mount it there:
mount /dev/sdXY /mnt/my_usb.
