Nerdonite Posted April 22, 2013 Share Posted April 22, 2013 Hey, because I'm one of those guys that buys a lots of USB flash drives but looses all of the ones with higher capacity, I have at home about 3 1GB ones which I want to play until I have some leftover money to buy a 16/32GB one :D So, I used a powered hub with 2 flash drives and hooked it up to the Pineapple. Both of them are configured for ext4, except that one of them has a partition for swap, and I use this to keep infusions and opkg packages, while the other one has only a ext4 partition. When I hooked both of them up and restarted the Pineapple, both of them were detected, but only /dev/sdaX (the one with swap+files) is automounted because of my fstab. However, if I list all the devices found, I get "/dev/sdb1" as well, and it's the exact size of the ext4 partition from my other drive. But when I try to mount it (manually using "mount") it says something like "not found in fstab". So I did some research and found out that fstab controls which drives can be "mount"-ed. So I created a new line in fstab, this one: config mount option target /external option device /dev/sdb1 option fstype ext4 option options rw,sync option enabled 1 option enabled_fsck 0 and restarted it, and now it doesn't even detect the /dev/sdb1, nor can I mount it manually. But the stick with swap and files works great. It always did since I got my Pineapple. It mounts to /usb with no problems. I thought that the other stick would be corrupted, so I used another one, and the same exact problem occurs. Any thoughts on how to auto-mount multiple flash drives? Thanks a lot!
