......@@ -20,7 +20,7 @@ To complete this section, you will need:
* a microSD card
* a method of accessig the microSD card with your computer (like a microSD <-> USB card reader)
Using your microSD <-> USB reader, mount the microSD card and take note of the device (with ``lsblk`` or ``df``). Then unmount it. The device name will be listed in the first collumn of the output of ``lsblk`` as shown below. On most GNU/Linux systems the device name will be /dev/mmcblk0, /dev/sdX or something similar. If it is listed as /dev/sdX, the X will actually be some letter corresponding to the device (in this example, /dev/sdd). For this walkthrough, the device is /dev/sdd. Make careful note of the device name on your system as you can and will lose data if you get the device name wrong::
