Thread: Really slow to mount USB stick in dolphin!

  1. #1

    Default Really slow to mount USB stick in dolphin!

    I just recently applied all the updates recommended by kupdateapplet and now when I'm in doplhin and I double-click on a USB stick's icon to show its files, it's REALLY slow and does nothing for about 8-10 seconds, then it shows the folders.

    The first time I click on any folder it's also slow (about 5 seconds) and then it goes into the next folder fairly normally. HOWEVER, when i paste a file into the usb stick, it "freezes" for about 7 seconds before a window pops up saying it's transferring it and then it does it super fast.

    This never happened before and now it's been happening for three days straight!

    Any ideas?

    You tried running dmesg immediately after one of the actions causing problems to see if anything shows up?

    No, how do I use dmesg to do that? Do I grep for anything?

    Just run dmesg a root in a terminal. It will present a lot of lines, but you will only be interrested in the last 20 or so (when you do this shortly after inserting the device).

    OK, I did that. So what am I looking for? I have no idea how to interpret this stuff.

    Just plug in a stick, wait ten seconds or so to let it mount, open it in dolphin have a nose around, unmount it again...

    Then open a terminal, run dmesg, and paste the last section of output. It should be fairly obvious when you plugged the stick in (it will start talking about sdX, so it helps to know what it's been designated) - paste everything after that.

    OK, I did this (typed dmesg right after it mounted the stick) but here's what's weird is I get a gazillion lines that have nothing to do with it (I think) all like this:

    Code:

    The problem with grepping is you may well be missing out important details. This, for reference, is what my debian install says when I put in a USB stick.

    As you can see, quite a lot of those lines don't have 'sd'anything in. I'd have a look through and see if you can find the whole relevant block of text. You might find you need to increase the buffer in the profile options of the terminal emulator you're using in order to scroll back far enough. Then pray for a guru, because I have no idea what any of it means.

    It is interesting that it seems to be talking about eth0 though. It's a long shot, but have you tried disconnecting your network and seeing if it still gives the same problem?

    Is dmesg in chronological order?

    Because did dmesg first (to get a "diff" ) then I mounted the drive, I opened a folder (two actually) and then waited a bit and when I hit dmesg, there was NOTHING new! What could make that happen?

    (And yes, I'm doing it as root user)

    OK, I did it again and got:
