Hi! Thank you for this tip. The first thing I tried was FAT32 but that didn't seem to work. Not quite sure why.
What I ended up doing was this:
- installing Tuxera NTFS on my Mac
- formatting the USB drive with NTFS
- transferring the files onto the USB stick
- mounting the stick on my BSD computer (as per standard instructions) using the
-t ntfs flag as specified in
- then using
fw_update(8) to install the drivers
Phew! It took a while to figure it out, but I learned a lot along the way.
In the future I'll want to figure out FAT32, I think, though. You're right, it's a more reliable crossover filesystem standard than NTFS.
Thanks for replying!
