I recently upgraded from OpenSuSE 10.3 to 11.0, and I am still trying to get used to it. I use KDE 4 now, and used KDE 3.5 when I had OpenSuSE 10.3. In particular, the automount splash screen when plugging in USB devices that used to be in KDE 3.5 is not there, which seems to have been replaced by the “Recently plugged devices” applet on the main bar.
The problem is that my USB card reader is not recognized in that panel, nor is it automounted anywhere, nor I can mount it directly as root.
Here are some diagnostics I ran:
$ dmesg ... usb 1-8.1: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 11 usb 1-8.1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice scsi9 : SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices usb 1-8.1: New USB device found, idVendor=05e3, idProduct=0710 usb 1-8.1: New USB device strings: Mfr=0, Product=4, SerialNumber=5 usb 1-8.1: Product: USB2.0 card Reader usb 1-8.1: SerialNumber: IR05032 usb-storage: device found at 11 usb-storage: waiting for device to settle before scanning scsi 9:0:0:0: Direct-Access Generic STORAGE DEVICE 9144 PQ: 0 ANSI: 0 sd 9:0:0:0: [sdd] Attached SCSI removable disk sd 9:0:0:0: Attached scsi generic sg4 type 0 scsi 9:0:0:1: Direct-Access Generic STORAGE DEVICE 9144 PQ: 0 ANSI: 0 sd 9:0:0:1: [sde] Attached SCSI removable disk sd 9:0:0:1: Attached scsi generic sg5 type 0 scsi 9:0:0:2: Direct-Access Generic STORAGE DEVICE 9144 PQ: 0 ANSI: 0 sd 9:0:0:2: [sdf] Attached SCSI removable disk sd 9:0:0:2: Attached scsi generic sg6 type 0 scsi 9:0:0:3: Direct-Access Generic STORAGE DEVICE 9144 PQ: 0 ANSI: 0 sd 9:0:0:3: [sdg] Attached SCSI removable disk sd 9:0:0:3: Attached scsi generic sg7 type 0 usb-storage: device scan complete ...
$ cat /etc/fstab ... usbfs /proc/bus/usb usbfs auto 0 0 ...
$ mount /dev/sg6 /media/SD mount: /dev/sg6 is not a block device
I am at a loss, since it used to work in 10.3 and now in 11.0 it doesn’t… also, inserting a DVD/CD does work, it get recognized in the panel and can be unmounted also.
Thanks a lot!
