Thread: USB devices unabe to mount when plugged in (11.3 RC1)

  1. #1

    Default USB devices unabe to mount when plugged in (11.3 RC1)

    Hi guys, I have issues accessing my external storage whether it is a portable harddrive, SD card for my mobile phone. They used to work well in 11.2. I am using a Sony Vaio VGN-A19GP laptop.

    The results below show what happens when my usb mass storage device is connected

    Hi guys, I managed to resolve the issue by downloading the HAL daemon from the online update through YaST. Apparently it was unchecked, btw i was using the KDE version LiveCD. I hope this issue does not carry on to RC2. Thanks

    Thanks for the update! Do you know the exact name of the package?

    I took a look at the snapshot repos for 11.3 RC1:
    Code:
    http://download.opensuse.org/factory-snapshot/repo/oss/suse/
    I noted these hal packages in that repos:
    Code:
    gimp-module-hal-2.6.8-4.6.x86_64.rpm
    hal-0.5.14-6.6.x86_64.rpm  349K
    hal-32bit-0.5.14-6.6.x86_64.rpm
    hal-doc-0.5.14-6.2.x86_64.rpm
    I assume it is one of those packages that you are refering to ? I'm not at a linux PC right now so I can not check (what is installed on the 11.3 RC1 liveCD) but I assume it is one of the packages that I quoted that is missing?

    If you type:
    Code:
    rpm -qa --last | grep hal
    it should tell you the date in which any package with "hal" in the package name was installed and that might help confirm the exact name of the package that was recently installed.

    I installed RC2 from KDE liveCD and have nodisk information in KDE utilities and no notification of USB on hotplug.

    Thanks for the warning. What do you mean by online update? The Yast > ... >Online Update uses a repo that contains only sample update package for development testing.

    So, what do you mean? What's the package name?

    oldcpu, I just installed the "hal" package. It's described as the hal daemon. It installls gimp-module-hal by dependency. I'm on 64bit, see here:

    Code:
    gimp-module-hal-2.6.8-4.6                     Fri 18 Jun 2010 11:37:30 BST
    hal-0.5.14-6.6                                Fri 18 Jun 2010 11:37:29 BST
    After re-boot, it fixed the missing disk information, and the usb hotplug which now appears in the kickoff menu>Computer - click on it to mount. I don't have a KDE notifier icon in the panel, and I don't know if there should be one as it was missing in M7 as well.

    oldcpu, I edited the post with the following probably after you saw it:

    After re-boot, it fixed the missing disk information, and the usb hotplug which now appears in the kickoff menu>Computer - click on it to mount. I don't have a KDE notifier icon in the panel, and I don't know if there should be one as it was missing in M7 as well.
