  1. Maxtor Basics desktop storage 500GB

    Hi,
    I had to do a reinstall of Madriva 2008.1 powerpack, but after that,
    when I connected my external harddrive to the USB-port, Klauncher
    complaines about an unknown protocol, why is that? My 4Gb Corsair flash
    Voyager USb-stick funktion without a problem between all my machines.
    Earlier this worked just fine, and I could transfer files from the
    Linux-machine and the other machines that I have.
    I am operating a 32bit Linux system, just had to mention that since I
    say in my sig that I have a 64 bit processor.
    Hope that some could help me with this.

    Roger

    Connect the drive, and check /var/log/syslog. It should show which device
    the drive is being assigned to. Then run "fdisk -l /dev/sd?", to see if
    the partitions are being seen.

    Post the messages from syslog, the output from fdisk, lsusb and
    "lsmod | grep usb".

    The syslog and lsmod output looks good. /dev/sda1 is a partition, which "fdisk -l"
    doesn't understand. /dev/sda is the device.

    Try "fdisk -l /dev/sda"

    Ok, the drive looks fine, so the problem appears to be something
    to do with hotplugging where udev, haldaemon, and kde work together
    to detect the connection of the device.

    Do you have an entry for /dev/sda1 in /etc/fstab?
    ("grep sda /etc/fstab" will show if there is one).

    What is the exact error message that shows up, when the drive
    is connected?

  7. Re: Maxtor Basics desktop storage 500GB

    i got nothing doung the "grep" command, so I got this from my fstab file:

    # Entry for /dev/hde5 :
    UUID=033133f4-2f12-4f00-b408-494a56291792 / ext3 relatime 1 1

    # Entry for /dev/hde6 :

    /dev/cdrom /media/cdrom auto umask=0,users,iocharset=utf8,noauto,ro,exec 0 0
    none /proc proc defaults 0 0
    # Entry for /dev/hde1 :
    UUID=95080d34-e9dd-4285-9c09-54ef0952f240 swap swap defaults 0 0

    I don't excactly remember the error, since now, when i connected the
    drive, I got no errors, just a new window in KDE system:/media/sda1
    with no files in it, witch is funny since there are several files on
    that disk.
    I will translate the error (Norwegian system) as soon I get it back.

    Error message translatet, please bear with me:

    "Unable to start process cannot make IO-slave:
    Klauncher said: Unknown protocol "" "

    There it is, somewhat close to the original.

    Have you applied all of the updates, since reinstalling?
    "rpm -q -i kdebase-common" should show the Release as 37.2mdv2008.1

    I've found many items with a google search for
    "unknown protocol Klauncher mandriva usb", but other then some being
    the result of version problems, none that seem relevant.

    In a terminal window, run "/usr/bin/kio_media_mounthelper -m /dev/sda1",
    to see if that will mount the device. Run "mount |grep sda1" to see
    where it mounted it, and "ls -l /media/xxxx", replacing xxxx with
    the directory name shown by the mount/grep output.

    Now it came up, before me trying your commands, seems like there is some
    hardware-glitch somewhere..Well well, being late and all I will try more
    tomorrow. Thanks for your time David.

  11. Re: Maxtor Basics desktop storage 500GB SOLVED

    How stupid is it possible to be? Well,
    I had just, all the times, just pulled the USB plug out from the Win$
    machine each time I was done using the external harddisk...THAT was a
    BIG mistake, since the Win@$*** machine marked it as IN USE..Silly,
    silly me. I tried "Safe removal" instead...and hey..presto, the Linux
    machine was able to connect to the external machine. Just thought I'd
    post it here...Just in case. i am sorry for have been wasting the time
    for you people.
