kernel 2.6.4 - block device

Posted on 2004-03-28
Last Modified: 2010-04-22
I would like to write a block device that I could mount as a file system in /mnt/something and that I could go into that catalogue and type ls for instance or cat /mnt/something/file.txt (<- it will read from a string from the device). I`ve already written a character device but block device seems to be much more difficult
Any help?
