mindi USB key problems

Reported by: vicgat Owned by: bruno
Priority: normal Milestone: 3.0.4
Component: mindi Version: 3.0.3
Severity: normal Keywords: mindi keyboard azerty
Cc: vicgat, ddiaz

Description

When I run mindi and create a USB key, that key boots but it cannot mount /dev/sdb1 to /mnt/cdrom, so - for example - AZERTY keyboard is not set.

It is because of the find-and-mount-cdrom file, which does not try /dev/sdb devices and which try to mount with iso9660 type only (and USB key made by mindi is vfat fs type).

If I change in /usr/lib/mindi/rootfs/sbin/find-and-mount-cdrom

for device in /dev/hd? /dev/scd? /dev/rcd? /dev/sr? /dev/cd? /dev/ide/*/*/*/*/cd /dev/scsi/*/*/*/*/cd; do

by

for device in /dev/hd? /dev/sdb? /dev/scd? /dev/rcd? /dev/sr? /dev/cd? /dev/ide/*/*/*/*/cd /dev/scsi/*/*/*/*/cd; do

and the two mounts

mount $device -t iso9660 -o ro /mnt/cdrom 2> /tmp/mount.log

by

mount $device -t vfat -o ro /mnt/cdrom 2> /tmp/mount.log

Then mindi can mount the USB key to /mnt/cdrom at boot.

I still get the following error and keyboard type is still QWERTY, but it is because my USB key was made by mindi, not by mondo so there is no archives directory on it.

There is a CD in /dev/sdb1 but it's not a Mondo CD

With the find-and-mount-cdrom not modified, I booted on the USB mindi key, and I used:

boot: usb=/dev/sdb

Then I get AZERTY keyboard in the shell.

So I guess that there is no bug and that this ticket can be closed...
