4026Re: Need help for usb automount with Murakasi
- Sep 9, 2005Hi Sylver,
I have an LS1 running Debian, and get pretty good connection to a usb
hard drive (and most other devices) using usb 2 -as in
http://linkstationwiki.org/Articles/DebianUSBDevices . I didn't use
the LS OS for more than a few days.
To be honest never tried to get automount operating since very rarely
use it. The debian I have has no /etc/murasaki just a usb-storage.o
These modules have been fudged in using a mix of ls and kuro-box
drivers, autofs and hotplug installed through apt-get.
kuro-box.com still seems to be down -I take it you've looked at
I know little about the drivers or how to build a set but others do
and would like to build a better one - as in
I'm also told that hotplug doesn't work well on 2.4.17 (until 2.6) so
that's the reason a reboot often makes it work. In which case
automounting may be unreliable in practice. Also mine mounts only with
mount -t vfat /dev/sda /mnt/mntpoint whereas most would suggest
/dev/sda1 would be more suitable. Whether this is a bug or just a
strangeness of the modules mix?
