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:
Linux linux-hez9 2.6.34.7-0.7-desktop #1 SMP PREEMPT 2010-12-13 11:13:53 +0100 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

Here is the output from /var/log/messages:
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 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'

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 :: 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?

Slackware :: Xfce Automount Luks Lvm External Drive

Apr 5, 2011

I have a luks-encrypted external drive with lvm on top. When I plug it in xfce prompts me (twice as usual) for the encryption phrase. Then, unlike when I have a regular file system on top and it automounts, I need to activate the volumes and manually mount. Is there a way to make these steps happen automatically?

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 Installation :: Grub2 External Hard Drive - Fails And I Get A Grub Rescue

Feb 8, 2010

I've tried to be clever but as usual I didn't think before acting and missed a small detail.

I have recently installed karmic (dual booting with Vista) on my dell xps laptop. The install went fine, I'm very happy with my new OS.

I bought a new Seagate 500GB portable external HDD. I got a bit over-excited and installed karmic on the external drive. This worked fine and I got a lovely (but slow to appear) Grub2 menu showing my vista and both ubuntu options.

My problem is that now, when I unplug the external drive, Grub fails and I get a grub rescue> prompt. So I need the external drive to be plugged in if I want to boot.

It seems I have done something to the grub configuration. I have read around the subject but I am not confident about how best to proceed.

I understand there is an 'advanced' option in the installer which will allow me to choose where to install grub. Presumably I want it on the internal drive so that I can boot without the external one plugged in.

Am I right in thinking I can just pop in my install disk and redo the installation?

If I indicate I want to install Grub on the internal drive, which partition should I aim for?

Will I get a grub option for booting to the external drive?

Will I be able to plug the external drive into a different machine and boot from it?

I haven't done anything with the fresh install on the external drive so I don't mind losing that.

Ubuntu :: Load Windows Partition Encase The External Hard Drive Fails?

May 14, 2010

I'm new to the ubuntu forums as well as ubuntu. I'm excited to learn more about linux itself as well as ubuntu. I got ubuntu 10.04 running on my toshiba L505D laptop by disabling acpi in the boot commands. My first question is how do i do this permanently, is this bad, and would updating fix the issue? If so how would I go about updating.

Secondly, when the external hard drive I installed ubuntu on is not plugged in to the laptop, GRUB rescue comes up. I kind of like this because it provides a level of hardware security. I would however like to know how to load my windows partition encase the external hard drive fails.

Hardware :: External Maxtor Hard Drive Fails To Load Windows 7 And 10.04 Lucid

Jun 17, 2010

I have a Onetouch 4 mini 160GB I bought a year ago. I t used to work fine but all of a sudden it started to become a problem device. My home pc has two operating systems on it: Windows 7 and ubuntu 10.04 lucid. the drive often fails to load on both systems. Sometimes it's recognized, but the reads are very slow and opening a folder on the drive takes around 120 seconds. Itried reformatting the whole drive, chicking it with chkdsk but it didn't help. Now I have around 70 GB of data on the drive. On my office pc I don't have such a problem and the drive works fine.

My home pc has an Asus P5B motherboard and intel core 2 duo cpu. I tried unplugging other usb devices, plugging in the extra power cord (data + data/power) and it didn't help. The drive also makes beeping sounds when I try to browes the files on it. I'm sure thid is not OS related as both Windows and Linux have the same issue. This is the output of dmesg | tail command on linux. You can see the os keeeps "resetting" the drive:

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.

Ubuntu :: External USB HD No Longer Will Automount

Debian Configuration :: Automount External USB HD Using Udev

Jan 23, 2011

I have a problem copying my udev rules from other distro to another pc running debian. My box is running debian without any DE and I want my USB disks to be automounted based on the label; I believe udev is the nicest way to do this task.

Anyways : my rules are (copied from archlinux wiki btw)
cat /etc/udev/rules.d/92-my-media-automount.rules
# vim:enc=utf-8:nu:ai:si:et:ts=4:sw=4:ft=udevrules:
# /etc/udev/rules.d/92-my-media-automount.rules
# Only work on sd*
KERNEL!="sd[a-z]*", GOTO="my_media_automount_end"
ACTION=="add", PROGRAM!="/sbin/blkid %N", GOTO="my_media_automount_end" .....

I notice the directory is made successfully up inserting the usb HD, but the mount doesn't succeed. If I manually execute above command, the mount goes ok.

Ubuntu :: External HD (reiserfs) Won't Automount In Lucid

My external HD where everything I backed up from my previous install will not mount. It shows up in lsusb, but when I do dmesg:

Also of note, my main filesystem is reiserfs, so there isn't a problem of not having reiser installed.

Debian Configuration :: 8.2 - Getting External USB2/3 HDDs To Automount / Autounmount

Dec 10, 2015

I'm running Debian 8.2 and trying to set up so I can plug in a couple of external hard drives that will be used to sync data between systems using rsync.

I've got the rsync bit working how I want, thats not a issue. But what I can't seem to get to work properly is when I plug the devices in, they don't mount automatically.

I've tried various methods to no avail so far, systemd.automount in fstab doesn't seem to want to work, for some reason it gives a I/O error. I've tried setting up udev rules and they don't work either, so I'm a bit of a loss now.

Not sure what info to provide that would be relevant at this time, but can add logs as required easy enough.

This machine is headless, so command line only suggestions would be best. I can access X via the network if I have to, but I'd rather do it by cli for ease of access.

My fstab file

Code: Select all# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a
# device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices
# that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
#
# <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
# / was on /dev/sda1 during installation
UUID=9b4e9dae-ea53-439a-a7fe-87c371c03803 /        xfs     defaults        0       1
# /home was on /dev/sda9 during installation

Ubuntu :: Setup Two External Hard Drives To Automount In Fstab

Sep 10, 2010

I have set up two external hard drives to automount in fstab with the following lines:

/dev/sdb1 /media/DownstairsBackup ntfs-3g rw,auto,user,exec,sync 0 0
/dev/sda1 /media/UpstairsBackup ntfs-3g rw,auto,user,exec,sync 0 0

And right after I restart, all users have permission to read and write, and everything is fine. However, I have an automated backup utility (BackinTime) installed to back up particular (mounted network) directories every night, but whenever I check up on it the next day, I get the error "Unable to mount ..... Authorization required". (These network directories are mounted into the local filesystem in fstab as well.) Oddly enough, if I run BackinTime by hand as the users, it works fine. I'm running 10.04 LTS.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Unable To Use External DVD-RW Drive

Apr 14, 2010

I'm running openSUSE 11.1 32-bit and I'm trying to use my external USB DVD-RW drive. I've tried loading two 11.1 discs in the drive and both of them fail.After putting the dvd in the drive I mount with::mount/dev /scd0 /media/cdrom

and it comes back with:mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sr0, missing codepage or helper program, or other error.In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so.Second question is can I use this external USB DVD-RW drive to install linux from, or does it have to be an internal drive? If so is there anything special I need to do to get it to look at the drive during boot. I take it this is dependant on a BIOS setting. This is all assuming of course I can get my dvd's to read.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: USB External Drive Works On Desktop?

Sep 14, 2011

So I've got a weird issue with my usb external drive. It's a generic enclosure in to which I've mounted a toshiba IDE drive. It appears as "Generic USB to IDE bridge".Said drive works fine on every machine I try to use it on, but NOT my laptop. Oh, it will appear in LSUSB, and in dmesg, (sometimes it appears, but the partitions do not, e.g. I see sdc, but not sdc1 and sdc2).

However, on any attempt to access it (it mounts fine too), Dolphin hangs (and so does most of KDE). I assume a disk sleep is the problem. Unplugging the drive resolves the hang. ages later, the drive will copy bits of data in small spurts, until it hangs for some more time. After a while, I see an ACHI/USB reset message in the system logs, and the drive resumes copying for some more time.

The drive is bus powered, but it doesn't matter if I use one/both USB connectors, and like I said, it works fine on my desktop, which also has SuSE 11.4 on it. Any ideas what's going on? Sorry if I left out some info, I wanted to get this out and let you folks stew over it while I'm running some errands.

OpenSUSE Install :: Using An External Drive As A Root Device?

Jan 6, 2010

I have a large external drive, which I connect to my laptop via a PCMCIA card - the machine is old and does not have USB 2.0 built in, so I use the PCMCIA card for that.

I am thinking of the following setup, and hope you can give me some tips on whether or not that would be a sound solution:

- designate a boot partition on the laptop's internal hard drive, which could store kernels

- make up a linux partition (or more than one) to use as root for any distribution on the external drive

- keep /home as separate partition on the external drive

My goal in mind is to be able to boot more than one Linux partition from the external drive. I can't make it through USB boot because the PCMCIA card is not recognized before a kernel module is loaded, and I can't use the internal USB 1.1 port for the external drive.

Do you think this is the way to go? Currently, I only have my /home partition mounted off the external drive.

OpenSUSE Install :: Formatting A External Hard Drive?

Jun 12, 2011

What I've done is partition my external hard drive to have 130g for my Windows info. Then putting the 90g towards Linux. I used a live cd on my home computer to format the 90g of Linux. I'm simply wanting something to learn more about from time to time that I can use on my home computer, laptop, fiance's computer, etc. So the formatting went successful. I have linux on the 90g of hard drive that I wanted it on. The problem is this. When I take the live cd out, when I remove my external hard drive from my computer. The home computer (which has Windows) won't boot. It comes up with a error 21. But now when I boot with the external hard drive I use, I make it to the boot menu and can boot from Windows.I need to be able to boot from Windows on this home computer, since my mother and grandparents use this computer quite a bit. I'm not always going to have my ext. hard drive plugged into this computer, so I need some help if you all know now.
