How can i mount /dev/sdb4 for torrent downloading in my openwrt?

mount /dev/sdb4 /mnt

you might need additional packages, for file system support, etc.

/dev/sdb4 is recognized in debian, there is no /dev/sdb4 in openwrt!
Which additional package need install then?

start with block-mount, and perhaps blockd.

might want to install fdisk or gdisk to verify the disk partition is readable.



opkg update
opkg install block-mount fdisk
