I'm facing some problem while trying to mount a
compact flash as a MTD device on my host/development
PC. I would be glad if anyone could help.
The setup which I'm using in the lab is as follows:
. Host PC with RedHat 9.0 and MontaVista 4.0.
. Target Compact Flash is Pretec make (128MB).
What I want to achieve:
. When I connect the target flash to the host PC
(to the IDE Slot), I want the target flash to be
detected by the host PC as a MTD device, so that I can
mount a JFFS2/EXT3 filesystem in it.
What I have done so far to achieve this:
. I have built/compiled a customised kernel in the
. MTD support has been enabled in the Host PC
(using command menuconfig).
My observations so far:
. When the target flash is connected to the Host
PC, the Host PC detects it as a "hdd" device and not a
. What steps do I need to perform to ensure that
the Host PC detects the target flash as a MTD device,
when connected to it over IDE Slot (using FRC cable).
