Thread: removable media not mounted

  1. #1

    Default removable media not mounted

    On both a previous and, now, a fresh install of SuSE 10.3, my removable devices (i.e. optical drive, FD, and usb stick) are not mounted automatically. I don't know where to start. This is what I get:

    tall:/etc # df
    Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
    /dev/md1 9297608 2820292 6005016 32% /
    udev 1030980 192 1030788 1% /dev
    /dev/md0 101074 16422 79434 18% /boot
    /dev/md3 267062112 19164 267042948 1% /home
    /dev/md2 188661756 912 188660844 1% /srv
    tall:/etc #

    This is my system:

    tall:/etc # uname -a
    Linux tall 2.6.22.17-0.1-default #1 SMP 2008/02/10 20:01:04 UTC x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

    Any suggestions?

    Question Re: removable media not mounted

    Here is an update. I found a good link relevant to this problem:
    Low level debugging of removable devices

    Here is my current situation:

    tall:/etc # lshal --monitor
    Could not initialise connection to hald.
    Normally this means the HAL daemon (hald) is not running or not ready.
    tall:/etc # service haldaemon restart
    Shutting down HAL daemon done
    Starting HAL daemon done
    Loading CPUFreq modules done
    tall:/etc # lshal --monitor
    Could not initialise connection to hald.
    Normally this means the HAL daemon (hald) is not running or not ready.
    tall:/etc #

    Any suggestions?

    Go here: Webpin

    Pick one of the developer sites and add that as a yast-source/repo
    Like: Index of /repositories/home:/btimothy/openSUSE_10.3

    Then in Yast > Filter > Repos > select that one

    In the right window > update all that is in blue

    Note: with 10.3 it worked on my desktop; I had the same as you on my laptop & that fixed it for me.

    Good luck

    Thank you snakedriver. It took a few iterations, but now I have a fully functional system.
