Problem mounting USB storage Omega2+

  • Hi everyone!

    I'm trying to use USB storage, so I plug in de USB device and according to the documentation it should be automatically mounted and located in /mnt/ by default, but I can't see the USB storage there (sda1)

    root@Omega-6E16:~# ls /mnt/

    I couldn't find it in /dev :

    root@Omega-6E16:~# ls /dev/
    autofs              ppp                 tty40

    null                tty39
    port                tty4

    The mounting configuration seems to be fine:

    root@Omega-6E16:~# vi /etc/config/fstab
    config global
        option anon_swap '0'
        option auto_swap '1'
        option auto_mount '1'
        option delay_root '5'
        option check_fs '0'
        option anon_mount '1'

    Can you help me, please?

  • @Jorgehst The first thing I would do is check if the insertion of the USB key is detected. To do this you can check the logs using the command logread. If the insertion of the device is not detected then it won't be mounted.

    What type of USB device are you using? Have you tried a different USB device? If so what?
    What dock are you using?

  • @crispyoz Thank you for your prompt reply and your help. At the end it was a problem of the customized PCB, it wasn't well rooted.

    I'm a newer user to Arch and Linux in general. I've got a pretty robust installation running on my computer with Fluxbox, PCManFM and SLiM for the graphical side (if these matter). Everything's running pretty well at the moment except I'd like to be able to auto-mount USB storage devices. Without adding the udev rule as mentioned here (because I would like the mounting to persist through a terminal window popping open), what's the best way to have things auto-mount like they do in Ubuntu or Windows? By this I mean I would plug in a USB flash drive and it'd automatically be mounted to somewhere like /media/<device name>/ and any user (or the one running x? or something) would have permissions to view/edit/execute.
