KDE & hal/dbus/udev problem with USB card...


Hi,

I'm on Debian unstable with kernel 2.6.14 and KDE 3.5.1.

I know this thing has been discussed over and over lately but I didn't see anything like the problem I'm experiencing riht now with my USB card and the KDE & hal/dbus/udev system.

In fact, everything is almost working, i,e, when I plug my USB card, it appears in KDE system:/media and the correspondant kicker applet and there's a window poping up asking what application I want to run. The only problem is when I try to mount it, it gets mounted in /media/sda1, but I can't access it directly, since Konqueror/KDE is trying to find it in system:/media/sda1. Also, while it is mounted and I can access it just by going in /media/sda1, it is not reported as being mounted in system:/media.

The same problem happens when I try to access my Win XP partition, i.e., it is mounted in /media/hda1, but Konqueror/KDE tries to find it in system:/media/hda1, and it is not reported as being mounted in system:/media

I've tried it with AND without the following fstab entries:

/dev/hda2 */ *ext3 *defaults,errors=remount-ro *0 *1
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom *iso9660 *defaults,ro,users,noexec,noauto *0 *0
/dev/sda1 /mnt/usbsda1 auto defaults,user,noauto,showexec,umask=022 0 0
/dev/hda1 /mnt/hda1 ntfs noauto,users,exec,ro,umask=000 0 0
/dev/hda3 none swap defaults 0 0

Someone has a clue?

Thanks.

so you're saying it gets mounted at /media/sda1 but you can't access it at /media/sda1 ??

not sure what you are saying here

Hi,

Thanks for your reply.

The difference between one and the other is:
"/media/sda1" (where it gets mounted)
AND
"system:/media/sda1" (where KDE/Konqueror points)

So, basically, it seems that "system:/media/sda1" is not linked or the same as "/media/sda1"

Weird...

Well, I'm not getting any error message. It's just that Konqueror keep trying endlessly to load "system:/media/sda1" without results...

system: is just the url handler, telling Konq how to handle the link, like http or ftp. It used to be media or devices or both, IIRC e.g media:/media/sda1

It sounds like it simply is not handling it properly, probably a corrupt config option as a result of the upgrade
You might try media:/, file:/, or devices:/.

Look in ~/.kde/share/apps/konqsidebartng/virtual_folders/services for the problem

Hi,

You must be right, but I can't find the file you're pointing at in my home directory. In fact, there's no "virtual_folders" in my ~/.kde/share/apps/konqsidebartng.

Following your advice, I've tried to start over from a fresh new .kde folder, like if I was a new user. The same problem happened, which indicates that if it's a config option problem, it does not result from an upgrade from a previous KDE version, but from my KDE installation itself....

Here's the end of the story:

I've just upgraded my kernel to 2.6.15, with the same parameters, and everything is working fine now.

Thanks for your help.
