well, is it a bug or not?
you wrote “with OpenSuSE 11.4, my externals USB drives are mounted
with user root. I can’t write any information on them.”
and, i don’t know what that “are mounted with user root” means…are
you saying they were plugged in before the boot and therefore not
auto-detected and auto-mounted…which is to be expected unless you
have set them to be mounted in fstab, right?
and so you had to manually mount them?
with a “device plasma applet” what is that? how did you mouth them as
root? did you log into KDE as root and then use device plasma applet
to mount them…or?
and when you did mount them, however you did, did you mount them read
only? did you assign ownership of the directories on the drive as
owned by root, or open to regular users…
see, your question leaves so much to the imagination that i can’t
begin to know if it is a bug or not…i could easily be the case that
it is not a bug…
for instance: you say the USB keys work, but the external drives do
not…that could easily be because that is the way it is by default,
until you set it up differently…and, if you don’t know that before
you start testing then you probably shouldn’t be beta testing the next
release because you will have exactly the same experience if you try
the same devices on 11.3–and, you can learn how to make read/write to
the external drives by using the forums advanced search funcion to
find the hundred or so threads where that same question has been
asked, and solved before…
now, that was all a guess…but, you have to tell us more if we are
gonna learn if it is a bug or not…
When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.
