Re: SystemAce and mb-uClinux (was RE: [microblaze-uclinux] Problemswith networking)
normally, we use the SysACE with devfs enabled. In that case the device
nodes are automatically generated and you should be able to mount your
mount /dev/xsysace/disc0/part0 /mnt
In your case you might want to add another device node
xsyseacea1,b,254,1 and then mount with
mount /dev/xsysacea1 /mnt
