Fedora :: Automount USB Flash Drive -noatime ?

Oct 17, 2009

After searching the boards, I dug through the udev man pages and rule files looking for a way to modify the default automount options for USB flash drives. Apparently, the options are somewhere else. Is there a simple way to add noatime to the default mount options?

Currently, the flash drive is automounted as follows:

I'm using Fedora 12, beta RC 2 in case that makes a difference.

OpenSUSE Install :: Get A Flash Drive To Automount When Plug In?

Oct 30, 2010

Got an old SUSE box from a friend, installed 11.3, got a few items: 1. didn't see any prompts to enter monitor info during install, control center shows as generic. Read about 'sax2' (hope that's right) but can't find it on my system or in the add-ons image. Do I need to hack monitor.conf? how? 2. installation aborted when trying to load 'textlive'.3. going into control center->mouse, the display quivers a little then I get kicked back out to the login prompt. 4. how to get kaffeine to process flv files? 5. how to get a flash drive to automount when I plug it in? I can manually mount ok. I guess that's about all for now.

OpenSUSE Install :: Noatime Isn't Working \ Set Noatime To Save Writes?

Nov 9, 2010

I have an SSD and I'm trying to set noatime to save writes. I didn't do this at the time of install, so I edited /etc/fstab later on. I noticed, however, that when I right-click on a file and view its properties, it still gives me a "modified" and "accessed" time. Did I do something wrong? Here is my fstab:

Code:
/dev/disk/by-id/ata-INTEL_SSDSA2M080G2GN_CVPO0161048A080JGN-part1 / reiserfs acl,user_xattr,noatime 1 1

Fedora :: Automount Fails For Mo-drive?

Mar 2, 2010

I think), and when I inserted a mo-disk in the drive, it automatically mounted and turned up as /media/disk. I then did an update (all) an now I am on core 2.6.31-12. The mo-disk will not automount any longer. Inserting a USB stick or a DVD still works fine, but I have to manually mount the mo. I have a feeling that it might be security related, but I am not sure.

lshal shows the following when I insert the disk:
10:08:38.309: storage_model_SMO_F551 property storage.removable.media_available = true
10:08:38.325: storage_model_SMO_F551 property storage.partitioning_scheme = 'mbr'

Fedora :: USB Automount On GNOME - Ext3 Drive

Nov 26, 2009

I have two USB drives, one with ext3, and the other w/vfat. On my new Fedora 12 installation, GNOME properly automounts the vfat drive on insertion. However, it applies a wrong command to mount the ext3 one. The end result is that the ext3 drive appears in /etc/mtab but, unlike vfat, is inaccessible to non-power user.

The mtab is: /dev/sdb1 /media/918fb656-8efc-43b5-bdfd-0bd8004deeba ext3 rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=devkit 0 0
/dev/sdb1 /media/49C6-1901 vfat rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=devkit,uid=500,gid=500,sho rtname=mixed,dmask=0077,utf8=1,flush 0 0

Somehow GNOME misses the uid=500,gid=500,shortname=mixed,dmask=0077,utf8=1, flush portion of the mount command when mounting the ext3 drive.

Hardware :: CD/DVD/Flash Automount Like In Gnome By Default

Apr 1, 2011

I know there are gigatons of information in the Internet about Flash automounting in Linux, but I can't find the right one. So I've been a Gnome-user for about a year now and got used to its automount system - I connect the Flash-drive and Gnome mounts it automatically to /media with its label (which is important). The same with CDs/DVDs so I always was getting something like:

Now I'm switching to Fluxbox and can't configure exactly the same automounting system.

Ubuntu :: Get The Automount For CD/DVD Drive Back?

Aug 13, 2010

how to fix this (10.04 Ubuntu x64):

A couple of weeks ago, my CD/DVD drive stopped working. I'd put in a disk, the light would flash, but it wouldn't appear as a mounted drive. Thinking the drive had finally died, I bought a new one. Same problem.

The drive is recognized by BIOS. I have it as try to mount first in BIOS, and if I put in the Ubuntu boot CD, it boots.

If I put

Code:
/dev/sr0/media/cd-dvdudf,iso9660defaults00

into /etc/fstab, and then mount -a, the drive contents appear and are accessible. However, as expected, the system chokes on boot if there isn't a CD in the drive, and I have to mount -a manually every time I start the system. Ugly.

So this is pretty clearly a software OS problem. how I can get the automount for my CD/DVD drive back?

Fedora Installation :: Install Fedora Into Flash Drive Instead Computer

Sep 9, 2011

Im taking the class now in college once a week. My professor said that we need to install any Linux operating systems so I chose Fedora, but he said we need at least 16GB free of space to install it in our computer, sadly i only have 1GB space left remaining. I told him about it and he told me about installing Fedora in my flash drive that has space of 16GB. I really am interested in this course and want to understand all of this stuff so can anyone tell me the process to install Fedora into flash drive so I can boot it anywhere else other than home? Also since he said I need 16GB to install it don't I got to buy 32GB flash drive at least?

Debian Hardware :: Not Automount A Dosfs Usb Drive?

Mar 23, 2011

I have a usb drive formatted using mkdosfs, and it must be manually mounted every time because it says "wrong fs type, bad option. bad superblock on /dev/sdb1, missing codepage or helper program, or other error" but it mounts just fine when I manually mount it. It would be nice if gnome would mount it when I plug it in instead of me having to go into root and mount the drive.

Ubuntu :: How To Stop External USB Drive Automount

Jan 17, 2010

Everyone seems to what to know how to automount an external USB drive. I'm trying to stop 9.10 from automounting it. Normally I use fstab to mount an external drive where I prefer it to be mounted. But after the last software update karmic (9.10) is now automounting my drive and screwing up the fstab mount. Some how the drive is showing up as /dev/hdd1 and /dev/hde1. I could just shutoff automount but I like it for USB sticks and cameras and MP3 players. How do you stop automount from mounting just an exteral USB drive??

Ubuntu :: External USB Drive - Switch On / Off And Automount?

May 28, 2010

I'm trying to setup my media streaming server, and everytying is going quite well, but there's one thing I don't understand. Can you have ubuntu automatically pick up and mount your external USB drive when you switch it on? I don't like leaving the hard drive running, and I only need to have it on when I want to stream something, but it seems to lose the mount when I switch it off and on again. Anyway to make it automatically detect that it's on and mount it back onto my mount point?

Ubuntu :: How To Get Nautilus To Automount Ext Drive At Startup

May 29, 2010

I want nautilus to automatically mount my external drive when ubuntu 10.04 starts. This drive is encrypted, but the key has already been stored and all I have to do is click on it in my Places menu for it to mount.

It mounts to: /media/Will's Drive

I feel like I shouldn't have to edit fstab or anything like that. If I can add it to my startup programs, that would be great, I just need to know the command to get nautilus to open up /media/Will's Drive at startup.

Ubuntu :: Dd Over Usb External Drive - Damn Automount?

Aug 2, 2011

I have an external harddisk (actually removed from a laptop) and I want do some analysis and data recovery on it. I bought a sata-to-usb adapter. Now the problem is: if I deselect media_automount "media_automount_open" and I select "media_autorun_never", the external sata driver is not recognised and I have no /dev/sdb1 to manually mount. Not a hint of a newly plugged drive in dmesg.

Then I re-enabled automount and then I remounted the drives as read-only. Afterward I starter cloning the hd with dd.After some three hours, the f*ck*ng laptop remounted the partition rw and the dd process went into io error. So the question is: how can I safely work with a usb device with manual operations?

Fedora Installation :: How To Install On A Flash Drive

May 5, 2009

I'm interested in trying out Fedora but would use it on my current Netbook (an ASUS eeePC 1000HE). I currently have Mandriva on it though which I don't want to stop using.Can I install it on a Flash Drive? If so, would it be in a sense a LiveDVD type of installation or could I actually do an install on the Flash Drive to use it as a Hard Drive? If so, what would the minimum flash drive size be?

Also, if I use the Flash Drive as a hard drive would it still have to use the internal hard drive or can all 3 partitions (swap, root, and home), be on the flash drive? Would it be possible to run it on more than one machine since I also have an Acer Aspire One?

Fedora Installation :: USB Flash Drive Install?

Jan 10, 2011

I downloaded the 32 bit Fedora 14 and burned the image to DVD. I didn't want to try to install it on the HDD because the last time I tried to install a distro that used Grub and not Grub2, the only OS I could get into from the boot screen was that OS that I installed with Grub.

I went ahead with the install in hopes that it would see my 4G flash drive, sdc was present so that is where I installed it. I mounted / in sdc1 and the bootloader in sdc. Everything seemed to install, install finished and said I could reboot. On reboot it tried to boot from the USB but just sat there, it never did boot.

Fedora :: Flash Drive Showing As 2 Volumes?

Sep 8, 2011

I have a load of Maxell 2GB flash drives which I bought new.

It has a Public Partition and a Secure partition on the flash drive.

gparted and disk utility see it as 2 volumes. I need remove the 2MB secure partition to make the 2GB stick bootable. However since it's showing up as 2 volumes I can't see how to do it. Probably requires totally wiping the flash drive.

Can anyone recommend how I go about this?
