I am trying to mount an portable MP3 player, but it won't even show up in the list of mountable devices. Only the Syllable "root" partition is there. The kernel log contains a lot of USB driver not found errors, but unfortunately I can not copy it over here, because when I try to do so ABrowse always crashes with a segmentation fault (which is a bug that has been reported over and over and over again).

I'll try to setup a telnet server on Syllable so maybe I can copy the kernel log to my windows machine, and post it from there.

Other then the unstability I gotta say you did a great job on this OS, the speed is just brilliant.

I couldn't get the telnet server to work, the Syllable User Bible tutorial on the subject doesn't work.

Syllable supports floppy drives so maybe you could try that.

Please run "tail -f /var/log/kernel" and then plug in the usb device and check the output.

I figured it out. There is a double entry of hda partition 1, and one of them is the USB stick when I plug it in. Still a bug, but it is mountable now.

Thanks for your support,
Eddy

They are two different devices. The USB device will be

/dev/disk/scsi/hda/0

and your hard disk will be

/dev/disk/ata/hda/0

Although yes, they are both shown in the tree with the label "Hard disk (hda)". I'm going to change this bug to "Enhancement" to change the way USB devices are shown in the tree to try and make it clearer.

This issue is still open. Any chance of moving forward on it?

Does the problem still exist in 0.6.7? Should I specify "-t vfat" for FAT32?

I tried "-t vfat" first and got a message "failed to mount".

I tried to omit "-t" - mount succeeded and all directories were available, but all directories content (list of files) was damaged.

Any ideas how to workaround that?

The conclusion of the above discussion was that this is not a bug, only a confusing user interface that can be made clearer. I don't think that has happened, hence why the report is still open.

How are your directory listings damaged?
