i try to install "mount" with apt, but i can't locate it, or a package that contains "mount".

i've tried:

  • just to run mount:

    no command 'mount' found

  • apt update && apt upgrade

  • apt install mount busybox toybox

    busybox is already the latest versuib; mount and toybox do not exist.

  • apt -s mount

    option not understood

  • apt search mount

    proot ...

  • apt install proot
  • mount

    not found...

  • google, locate mount, ls -lR. GOT YOU

The mount command is part of the util-linux package. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Util-linux

Try apt install util-linux

Either type


manually or create a shortcut by

ln -s /system/bin/mount $PREFIX/bin/mount

so that you can access it more easily later.

Don't bother with toolbox or toybox. Whichever contains the mount command will be symlinked to by /system/bin/mount.

/system/bin/toolbox mount
