I would like to know how to hotplug USB Pendrive after MDK9.2 loaded with KDE environment. If I forgot to attache the Pendrive before booting, I can not mount it and even if it is mounted, I can not go into its directory.
Is there any line to be added to fstab or other setting file to make it plug and play ?
Thanks in advance.
I still do not know how to hot plug USB pendrive after MDK9.2 finished to load system. When I issue command "mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/removable" as root, it looked the this device was mounted, but I can not open directory in it. I have to re-booting with USB pendrive already attached
Is there a way to overcome this problem ?
Thanks in advance.
That's because kudzu deletes the entry automagically (very annoying.) You said it works when you boot with the pen drive in. If you check while it's working, I believe you'll see a supermount entry in fstab for it. If not, here's the line from my fstab:
Just noticed you already have an fstab entry for /dev/sda1. If you want to use supermount with your pen drive you'll need to delete that line. If you don't want to use supermount, then I suggest you use the boards search function to peruse the dozen similar threads in the hardware forum, as your problem isn't Mandrake specific.
