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'

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Automount Fails With External USB Drive

Feb 14, 2011

When I plug my USB drive in, the kernel sees it and I can mount it manually. However, it won't automount. I've done plenty of google searches but nothing I've tried has worked for 'GNOME, SUSE 11.3.' I am not sure if it is a permissions problem, configuration problem, a kernel automount, HID, or USB problem.

uname -a (stock SUSE desktop kernel):
Code:

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Automount Of Ext NTFS USB Drive Fails Using Device Notifier

May 3, 2011

Automount of external NTFS USB drive fails when using the Device Notifier. The automount facility failed after the last kernel update. A bug report was kindly filed by @saverios. The details are in the quote at the end of this notice. Pending resolution of the bug, we recommend that you install the following workaround: Open the file /etc/filesystems and add an entry for "ntfs" so the file looks similar to this (see last entry):

Code:
vfat
hfs
minix

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.

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.

OpenSUSE Install :: RAID5 Array Fails To Automount After Reboot

Apr 26, 2009

I've got a RAID5 array that doesn't want to automount after rebooting. I'm pretty familiar with linux, RAID, and mdadm, and up until now, I've had the RAID5 array working just fine. However, whenever I reboot, the array drops off and won't remount until I manually assemble and then mount the thing. I find this odd because I had everything automounting just fine back in 10.3, and even in 11.0 (I think - not sure on that). Currently, things are working, but I'd really like to not not have to type

Code:
mdadm --assemble /dev/md0 /dev/sda1 /dev/sdb1 /dev/sdc1 /dev/sdd1
followed by
Code:
mount /dev/md0 /mnt/data every time I reboot. Even including this in some sort of start-up script seems kludgey... Surely there must be a more elegant way of automatically bringing up a RAID5 array after booting? I'm not sure what information you'll need, so I'm going to go ahead and include as much as I can anticipate...

So having already used the commands:

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?

Debian Hardware :: Not Automount A Dosfs Usb Drive?

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

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 Hardware :: Disk Drive Fails To Play DVDs

Feb 2, 2010

I have a Fujitsu Lifebook A3130, and I have semi-recently installed Fedora 11. I am still a fairly new linux user, and would like to continue to use this great open source software, but it seems my DVD drive fails to play DVD's. The specs are here, but unfortunately they don't give much detail as to the model number of the drive in question. I insert the disk, and it pops up with the following dialogue:

You have just inserted a Video DVD. Choose what application to launch. Select how to open "disk name" and weather to perform this action in the future for other media of type "video DVD". It then suggests opening the disk in "Movie Player", and provides a check box for "Always perform this action". I hit OK, and it seems to try to open Movie Player, but then comes up with this error:

An error occurred
Could not read from resource.
Then it provides an "OK" button. When I click the button it goes back to Movie Player, and proceeds to not show any video.

I just tried to open the disk inside of Movie Player, via the "Movie" menu, then clicking "play disk 'disk name'", but once again I get an error:
Totem cannot play this type of media (DVD) because it does not have the appropriate plugins to be able to read from the disk. Please install the necessary plugins and restart Totem to be able to play this media.
And again it provides an OK button, which diverts back to the main Movie Player window.

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.

Either mount the volume as root, or rebuild NTFS-3G with integrated FUSE support and make it setuid root. Please see more information at [URL] Is there any way that I can mount this drive (which must be ntfs-formatted) without root permissions? I have googled this error and it seems that many other people are having this same problem, but I can't find a real solution. Most people suggest just reformatting the drive.

Hardware :: Hard Drive Replacement - When Disconnect 4GB Drive System Fails To Boot Up And Complains - Error 21

Mar 20, 2010

I have minor problem with upgrading a hard drive. I am running an old pentium lll with two hard drives. On the first hard drive I have two partitions of around 90GB each. On the first partition is installed winXP and on the second partition I have Suse 10.3, both booted by grub and living happily side by side. My second hard drive (which is formatted for windows is only 4GB.

My problem arises when I try to replace the 4GB with a 80Gb hard drive. When I disconnect the 4GB drive the system fails to boot up and complains with error 21.

Hardware :: DVD Automount Fails With "CDROM Not Ready Yet" And "unaligned Transfer"

Nov 18, 2009

Recently my Kubuntu Jaunty installation has taken to not mounting previously OK DVDs.

What I see upon insertion of a disc is the automount fail:

This persists across discs and across reboots.

I looked around the net and I at least found some evidence of the "unaligned transfer" problem; supposedly this happens when something tries to access the drive before it's ready, and (at least for some kernels) can get the responsible module in a permanently confused state. However, I'm not accessing the disc manually, some automounter or something is accessing it -- I don't even know what.

I'm using Kubuntu Jaunty with KDE 4.3.2. Kernel string from bootup:

Fedora :: How To Automount Another Partition

Sep 4, 2010

On my computer for the last couple of years I have been running Ubuntu and Windows XP in a dual boot system. Due to some unsolvable problems in Ubuntu, I decided to try out Fedora. I created a third partition on my computer and into this partition I installed Fedora. Now when I boot my computer I can either run Fedora or Windows XP. Eventually, I plan to get rid of Ubuntu completely. But for now the Ubuntu partition is still on my hard disk; I can't boot up with Ubuntu anymore, and that's OK. I don't need to run Ubuntu, but I would like to be able to access the Ubuntu partition, since there are files there that I want to keep.

At least I want to be able to read and write to the files in Ubuntu. How can I automatically mount the Ubuntu partition so that I can work with its files from Fedora?

I'm pretty sure that to get the Ubuntu partition to mount, I need to enter some lines into the etc/fstab file. Does anyone know what I should enter into Fedora's etc/fstab file so that the Ubuntu partition will be mounted?

In my Ubuntu installation the partition is named DiskF, it is partitioned in the ext3 file system. In Fedora when I look at /media/DiskF, it is empty.

When I run [code] blkid in a terminal here is the output:

What are the commands that I need to put in /etc/fstab so that when I boot my computer in Fedora DiskF will be mounted?

Fedora Hardware :: Automount In KDE ?

Nov 12, 2010

I configured "removable devices" in system settings as follows:

checked "Enable automatic mounting of removable media"

and

checked "Automatically mount removable media when attached"

Now following reason you would expect when you put a CD/DVD in the CD/DVD player it would be automatically mounted in directory /media/ yes?

But no - you first HAVE to open the CD or DVD with a program (like a file manager) before the directory and its content appears in directory /media/. This is not expected and very annoying.

Why does the configuration screen not work as expected. Are all settings just being ignored or something? If so - then why are those settings there in the first place? Or did I simply done something wrong?

I just want a CD or DVD been automatically mounted when I put it in the player, so I can access it without first having to open it in a separate program.
