Thread: USB storage devices are not detected and extremely slow

  1. #1

    Default USB storage devices are not detected and extremely slow

    I tried to search the forum but I didn't find a similar problem.
    I need help with a couple of problems related to external USB storage devices.
    I decided, a few days ago, to solve some problems of my OpenSUS 15.3 by installing a new 15.4, also formatting the Home partition which was the same for years.
    A completely new and fresh installation then.
    Since the first start of the new 15.4 I have had 2 problems.
    All USB storage devices are not detected upon insertion or power on.
    All USB storage devices are extremely slow in their operations.
    I've done some testing, but I'm not very familiar with Linux.
    1)
    A 2.5-inch HDD, self-powered, on which I make scheduled backups, and with a 2-week history.
    Until before the new 15.4 the backup lasted, as an execution time, between 23 and 25 minutes.
    Under the new installation 15.4 the backup lasts at least 3 hours and 40/50 minutes..
    2)
    A 500Mb HDD, 3.5-inch, EXT-4, mounted in a docking station that contains aMule temporary files, if the program starts to work a lot, downloading many files at the same time, like a TV series, the program crashes continuously.
    The more disk activity increases, the more likely the program will crash
    3)
    The 500Gb disk in the docking station is only seen by the system if the doking is on at boot time.
    If I try to turn on the docking station when the computer is started it is not detected..
    4)
    A 32Gb Corsair Flash Voyager USB stick that I usually use to transfer data from one computer to another, so that I mount on occasion, is not recognized, even it, only if inserted at startup is it recognized.
    The Corsair Flash Voyager USB stick has a blue LED that flashes with activity, and that usually flashes when inserted and mounted.
    No flashing sign now in 15.4.
    Even this, if inserted at startup and recognized and mounted, is very slow when used.
    5)
    To realize the slowness we are talking about.
    Copy a file from the Corsair USB stick to the desktop.
    The file is 84.2Mb in size
    The copy in OpenSUSE 15.4 takes 4 minutes and 32 seconds.
    I tried the copy of the Windows 7 system, dual boot on the same machine, and it lasted 3/4 seconds, I didn't even have time to time.
    The USB stick was attached to the same USB port in both tests.
    6)
    A ZIP file copied from the 500Gb EXT4 disk in the docking station to the desktop, the file size 400.2Mb.
    Total copying time 21 minutes.
    Under "normal" conditions I would have expected a copy time of no more than 2 minutes, maybe just 1.

    I think you more or less understand the anomaly.
    I am not very well versed in Linux, even though I have been using it for years, but I am open to testing of all kinds.
    If you have any advice on how to proceed to understand what the anomaly is, thank you in advance.

    I've coloured the output pasted from my Terminal session to make it easier for you to compare the output from your system to that provided by my machine.
    • You don't need to colour your pasted output – we'll be able to interpret the black & white pasted copy.

    We'll also need to peek into the Repositories you're using –
    • Please post the output of “zypper repos --uri” – you can execute this command from a normal user's CLI in a Terminal Window.

    First dcurtisfra thank you very much for your reply.

    Here are the results of the commands you asked me, I hope. (I don't know why, since this morning, my system won't let me copy / paste without taking off all the LFs, so I have to manually edit all the carriage returns... I hope I have not made any mistakes)

    For the repository list, I know it's a bit of a mess.
    I added the -P option to see and sort the priority.
    I work with many "strange" multimedia programs, to install them I have to activate many "special" repositories.
    As often letting them run updates creates problems for the system so I use priorities to avoid the situation, I leave only the more "official" ones with higher priority so only those can upgrade.
    Here they are. (In the next post...)

    Now I am looking for the command, which I do not remember, of systemctl to make it wait for the insertion of the USB key and I will write it to you in the next post.
    If nothing has changed in the meantime, it didn't show anything at the time of insertion, but I'll try again anyway as soon as I find the right syntax.

    Default Re: USB storage devices are not detected and extremely slow

    I can no longer find the correct syntax to put the systemctl command on hold while inserting the USB memory.
    Maybe if you tell me, I'll do it first.
    Yesterday, doing tests, I had found it, and used it, today I can't find it anymore.
    I should have written it down.

    Meanwhile, I don't know if it's useful, I used dmesg.
    These are the last two lines of dmesg before inserting the USB memory.
    Code:
    [ 3015.715530] blk_update_request: I/O error, dev fd0, sector 0 op 0x0:(READ) flags 0x0 phys_seg 1 prio class 0  
    [ 3015.715542] floppy: error 10 while reading block 0
    Then I plugged in, and left plugged in, the USB stick for more than 20 minutes and nothing changed.
    (I was looking for systemctl syntax in the meantime, that's why 20 minutes)
    Code:
    [ 3015.715530] blk_update_request: I/O error, dev fd0, sector 0 op 0x0:(READ) flags 0x0 phys_seg 1 prio class 0   
    [ 3015.715542] floppy: error 10 while reading block 0
    In the meantime, I keep looking for the correct systemctl syntax.
    Corsair Flash Voyager USB stick, she's the one I'm rehearsing with now.
    The same one I mentioned in the first description and which still behaves the same way.

    I also redo the inxi command from root user with the USB memory inserted
    Code:

    It seems to me that nothing has changed.

    @renedrive:

    Looking at your list of repositories used, you seem to have added a number of Community repositories –
    • Please note that, these are private repositories used by community members – they are not subject to the rigours of OpenQA and, therefore, the quality of the software being built there can not be quantified.

    Please, reduce the list of repositories being used to, only those of the openSUSE factory plus, known reliable repositories.
    • My current list of repositories is as follows – you will, possibly, not be needing the “debug” repositories unless, you're submitting Bug Reports with Crash Dumps and, the “Source Repository” is only of interest for those people who need the source code packages or, the Linux Kernel documentation –

    Code:

    May I suggest that, you reduce your list of repositories to only the bare essentials then –
    • Execute “zypper refresh --force” and “zypper verify” – take care to note the messages, warnings and errors issued during the verification process.
    • Then execute “zypper update --allow-downgrade” and then, use the YaST Software Management to forcibly reinstall all the remaining packages which you have installed from wherever.
    • Then, check for any orphaned packages and, forcibly reinstall them from the main openSUSE repositories.
    • Then reboot.

    Please note the need to forcibly re-install the packages you have installed from wherever – the contents of those packages have to be replaced by the contents from the main openSUSE repositories.

    Default Re: USB storage devices are not detected and extremely slow

    As I mentioned in the comment with the list of repositories I am aware that I have many additional repositories and also many not fully officially certified.
    As I have also mentioned, I use my machine as a system for producing multimedia files, audio, video, presentations and documents from OCR scans etc ..., especially videos.
    Typically I install all the software I need with "1clickinstall" systems and, as you know, these bring with them the addition of repoitories that they eventually need.
    As soon as a possible package is installed, every time, I immediately enter the repository management and I lower the priority to all the new repositories acquired, in this way the system should never make automatic upgrades from non-standard and non-certified repositories.
    Since I initially left all certified repositories at standard level 99, I initially made mistakes by not correctly identifying "new arrivals", so some non-standard ones could remain active and cause upgrades and therefore possible damage.
    I solved this problem with a trick, that is, as soon as I installed the base system, from the DVD, I lower all the standard repositories to the level of priority 97, in this way I am able to understand very clearly which are the standard and certified ones compared to the "new ones arrivals"
    As far as I understand, and obviously I could be wrong, in this way the system will update automatically only and only from the most standard repositories, those with priority raised to 97 and, theoretically, never from any other repository that was not present after the first installation.
    Apart from the "few" repositories present after a fresh installation, the only repositories that I manually add and that I raise to level 97 are additional repositories that I find in an OpenSUSE wiki page as recommended additional repositories, and therefore, I guess, certified, and no one else.
    Over time I found myself observing that this system I used by managing priorities gave me a more stable machine, preventing "experimental" and malfunctioning updates from arriving in the system, corrupting its functioning.
    I don't know, I'm not sure, but I think it is possible that if I have additional repositories, even with lower priority, and a new program requires, as dependencies, newer, and perhaps experimental libraries, these can, during the installation phase, be brought into the system precisely because you find it in the non-standard repositories present.
    Or at least I think it works this way, I'm not sure.
    This, I believe, is a weak point of having such repositories active, even if at low priority, and that is that, if required by the installation of some program, some "non-standard" packages or libraries can "dirty" the system.
    This is what I think, and I seem to have understood, possibly correct me if something escapes me.
    Now to the question of cleaning up repositories and packages from removed repositories.
    I could, of course, easily remove all repositories that are not standard and certified.
    I did it, some time ago, when installing new particular software when I understood that he would try to use non-standard repositories, during the installation phase I asked him to "NOT" keep the repositories used active after the installation.
    This was my previous strategy to not "litter" the system with unwanted automatic updates.
    In this case, however, I could not possibly keep these additional installed programs manually updated, and from this situation I studied the system of repository priorities and I replaced this strategy with the one I explained above.
    In this way the sources of the additional programs are active but do not automatically "dirty" the system.
    Obviously this leads to pay attention, during the installation of a new "strange" program, to what is installed, which does not "seem" suspicious, for example by never activating the "automatic supplier change" in Yast, in this way it is me that I have to check if some "non-standard" library wants to overwrite the standard ones and eventually give up the installation of this package.
    It's not a perfect strategy, some non-standard updates can always escape me, of course.
    But I need such additional programs for the multimedia work I do, and we come to the matter of removing the packages you mentioned.
    So when you say ...
    May I suggest that, you reduce your list of repositories to only the bare essentials
    ...I believe that from the point of view of system updates I am, thanks to the priority strategy, in a relatively clean and standard system.
    I think I have a "relatively clean and standard" system, not only because I try to pay attention to what I install and dependencies, but also because typically the programs I install tend to need "particular" libraries only in the multimedia field, not it often happens that they want to change standard system libraries.
    Although of course it can happen, and it could be out of my control.
    Now, I understand that ...
    “zypper refresh --force” and “zypper verify”
    ... would lead, once removed the "unofficial" repositories, to go back to a standard system.
    But, I guess, it would also mean breaking all the multimedia dependencies that are necessary for the programs I need and use daily and that reside in the removed repositories, correct?
    In this way I would be in a position of not being able to have a functioning machine for the specific purposes in which I use it.
    Same goes with ...
    “zypper update --allow-downgrade”
    ... which would lead to the same situation.
    So also this valuable and valid advice ...
    Then, check for any orphaned packages and, forcibly reinstall them from the main openSUSE repositories
    ... would not give valid results because obviously all the "special" multimedia programs that I have installed, and that I need, and that require the repositories eventually removed, would no longer work and would be considered orphaned and could not be "fixed" precisely because in the repositories standards do not exist the necessary requirements to make them work properly.
    Now, having said that, if you have understood my situation, I understand that the situation is complex.
    It is certainly more difficult to understand what is wrong with a non-standard system.
    Unfortunately, however, I do not need a standard system but a system that is suitable for creating multimedia files, from many different sources and with many and different processing possibilities, is my "job".
    For this reason it is complex for me, but it is in general, to understand what is badly functioning.
    Keeping in mind, however, as I mentioned previously, that the USB malfunction and weakness was present even when the system was just installed, before the addition of the various additional repositories and various necessary programs, therefore also present in a freshly installed "standard system".
    I doubt that "weird" multimedia programs are going to mess with the libraries, and drivers, device management standards.
    I think I have to understand how "the detection of USB devices during connection or power on" works, as well as "the management of these devices during use" and understand if there is any anomaly in those systems, which for some reason has failed to be correctly configured or installed during the new system installation.
    I have no idea if it will be possible, if it will be easy, maybe it will not be, but to have a working multimedia machine I think I will have to try.
    I thought that I could eventually remove the repositories to have a report, typically I see it in Yast in red, of orphans, and start from there to understand if something standard has been polluted and correct it.
    But I should then know "what" to check, so what has to do with the anomaly I find.
    One thing that, of course, is not useful for me to do is make my machine unusable by uninstalling everything that is not standard, because it would not be a useful machine for my multimedia activity.
    I don't know if I've made myself clear.
    I don't know if at this point it is possible to debug the malfunctions.
    I hope so.
    And I will try.

    One thing I occasionally do if I run into glitches that I don't know how to fix is an "upgrade" installation, of the same system version, from the original DVD.
    I think it causes something very similar to what you ask me to do.
    When I start it I let it delete all pre-existing repositories.
    So when it's done I find myself with my "special" programs orphaned or not working.
    Typically from that situation I start from scratch and get everything I need to work again.
    Maybe by installing everything with more caution and attention, and maybe only one program at a time doing tests between one installation and another.
    But even if this system often works, it doesn't always work, it often doesn't work if, I believe, the problem could be in the configurations saved in the home partition that are not changed except slightly.
    I don't know, it's a tough job to do, long and tedious, and that may not solve, but maybe I'll try.

    Otherwise the only alternative would be to understand and debug the system as it is to understand what is not working well and solve that single problem, which is perhaps not easy.

    I don't know, tell me what you think and if you see, from your experience, a system to fix without making the machine unusable?
    In the meantime, I still thank you very much for the help and information you have provided me so far.
    I await your opinion on this, I'm curious to hear your opinion.

    Maybe disabling one of the others is the ticket. I don't feel like risking that one of the wrong others would necessitate a reboot to fix ATM.

    Default Re: USB storage devices are not detected and extremely slow

    I'm sorry, my bad English prevents me from fully understanding what you mean me to do.
    The command ...
    systemctl list-unit-files | grep udev
    ... returns me exactly the same result as it returns to you.
    Code:
    > systemctl list-unit-files | grep udev 
    dracut-pre-udev.service                                                   static          -

    systemd-udevd.service                                                     static          - 
    systemd-udevd-control.socket                                              static          -

    The command ...
    systemctl disable systemd-udevd-control.socket
    ... do you want me to run it to disable the udev system?
    So what then?
    Some test?
    Can you explain better what you mean by the phrase ...
    Maybe disabling one of the others is the ticket. I don't feel like risking that one of the wrong others would necessitate a reboot to fix ATM.
    If with the phrase ...

    ... you mean that ...

    Sorry for being so poor in both English and Linux system, I hope you will forgive me.
