Not detecting USB discs on 3 last versions of 4MLinux


Reporting problem with USB ports detection on 3 last versions of 4MLinux:

In all versions - the Tasks info (on right bottom on desktop) shows PID that "usb_storage" is running after USB flash drive has been plugged ... but:
v.21.x - OK, plugged/unplugged USB discs does show up and works
v.22.0-beta - OK, plugged/unplugged USB discs does show up and works
v.22.0 - NO, plugged/unplugged USB discs doesn´t show up at all (not in /dev/, not in /media/, not in pcman file-manager)
v.22.1 - NO, plugged/unplugged USB discs doesn´t show up at all (not in /dev/, not in /media/, not in pcman file-manager)
v.23.0-beta - NO, plugged/unplugged USB discs doesn´t show up at all (not in /dev/, not in /media/, not in pcman file-manager)

Tested on 4 different PCs/NTBs, each with 3-4 USB ports (v.2, v.3), tested with the 4 kinds of USB flash drives 4-32GB + with 2 different USB extern.2.5" discs 1+2TB.
Tested LiveCD.iso, downloaded od 2-3 different machines/net connections, burned on different machines onto 3 CDs, 2 DVDs, and 3 USB flash drives created with unetbootin and Yumi. To avoid wrong iso or wrong CD or wrong DVD or wrong USB flash disc.
After boot 4MLinux Live ISO on machine - tested plug/unplug USBs are not the same with booting USBs.
(´cos I keep my working old CDs, DVDs, booting USBs).

Hi,

I understand you are talking about the 4MLinux Live CDs and USBs. Please confirm.

Hi,

I made some quick tests with 4MLinux 22.1 Live USB and it works OK for me (I had no problems to mount USB storage devices). Have you tried the "mountall" command (it should be executed in your terminal) ?

Hi, yes Live CD, Live USB - that is correct.
Automatic USB mounting doesn't work at all from version 22.0 and higher.

Manual mount with the command "mountall" helps but just temporary - for that one plugged USB flash drive just for that one moment only.
It is unable to see another USBs plugged after that command, it is unable to see again the same one USB if I unplug and plug it back again.
(so I do have to re-do manually command "mountall" all the time again and again and again ...)

In version 22.0-beta and lower/older - USBs mounting were working automaticly and good.
Thank you for helping.

Hi,

Simple mount GUI will be included in 4MLinux 22.2, which is going to be released on the 3rd of September.
It will be available in the system tray (USB drive icon).

UPDATE:
I wrote a small mount daemon (based on the mumount script from RIP Linux), which accepts both manual requests (clicks on the mount/umount icon) and automatic ones (kernel events via udev), meaning that the mount GUI should start itself when a new USB drive is plugged in.
