Problem with external USB harddrive and Suse 9.1


Hi,

I got a problem with my external USB harddiskdrive (30GB hitachi with Cytronix hdd controler [Ali m5621 chipset]). I just installed Suse 9.1 (kernel 2.6.4-52) on two computers and with both I get the same result. When I plug the drive in, it's being recognized by the computer (seen in USBview an /etc/mtab) but when I try to access the drive the application I use habgs until I unplug the drive. Maybe I need to say tha Suse 9.1 uses submount. Oh, and sometimes after half an hour a konqueror window pops up showing the drive correctly. Than I can use the drive for some seconds before it crashes again. I will attach my /proc/bus/usb/device and /etc/mtab file. I really hope some could help me. The drive worked fine with Suse 9.0
Bye,
TommyT

Similar problem with Firewire

I have a Firewire external hard disk, which worked great with SuSe 9.0, but with 9.1 and this submount system things got nasty. Once I plug the disk in it gets recognized, and konquerrer startsmounting it, but only one partition is accessible. For the other 2 partitions a mount point is created but no access is possible!!

If I get more info and possibly a solution I will post it, If anyone can help here it will be appreciated.

I have related problems with SuSE 9.1. My flash card reader won't work properly unless a card is inserted when I boot up. If I want to change media, I have to reboot. In suse 9.0 it worked find (no submount). My digital camera, a kodak cx4230, doesn't seem to work correctly either (again it worked in 9.0)

One way to solve this is by not leting the subfs module load, lokk for it in /lib/modules... and rename it to something like subfs_DONT=USE
This is a tip I got from Stean Sayfreid, fromt the Suse laptop list.

Then it works like in 9.0
