How can access the VFAT partition from Linux?

Unread post by Sebas_Ledesma » Tue Dec 03, 2019 3:59 am

I'm trying to add the boot-logo.bmp to one project.
But I cannot access physicall to the eMMC to put into a emmc reader.
So how can I access/mount the VFAT partition from within linux?

I've mounted /dev/mmcblk0p1 as /mnt/sebas and copied there the boot-logo.bmp but it didnt appear when booting (I'm using a VU7+ display).

Thanks in advance,
Sebas

If you use our Ubuntu OS image, the VFAT partition is mounted on "/media/boot/" by default.

BTW, are you trying this instruction?

Thanks!
Yes I've followed the instructions of bootlogo for Ubuntu available at: https://wiki.odroid.com/odroid-c2/appli ... ogo#ubuntu
Yes I'm using Ubuntu 18.04, with kernel 3.16.72-46 with a VU7+ display,
My boot-logo.bmp it's located at /media/boot, it was generated with GIMP at 1024 x 600 x 24bpp with no color space information.

So I'm reviewing what did I miss.

Just a question:
I want to have a logo when booting, so no text it's showed.
- Do you recommend to use the boot-logo.bmp technique or the plymouth instead?

Thanks in advance,
Sebas
