Windows are not a rolling release. You can update windows7 as much as you want, you will never get windows 8 :D

Windows are a "frozen" release, just like Ubuntu. Just patches and fixes and some times, perhaps, a major update, like an update pack. Pretty easy stuff. So the two are not comparable. Windows would probably explode if they a got a head to nails major upgrade every one, two or three months, which is what is done here. ;)

I don't know if this should be posted here, or as a separate thread...

Since installing the UP 2014.01.15 yesterday, I am unable to mount any SD/MMC cards inserted into my card reader, unless they are inserted before the computer is powered on. My external (USB) HDD mounts no problem, but a SD card inserted into a USB adapter will not be seen by the system - they do not appear in the Device Notifier tray icon or anywhere within the file system (such as under '/dev'). If I insert the card before booting the computer, it can be accessed until it is removed - upon re-inserting it, the card is not seen.

The only issue I had during the UP process was the '/var/cache/apt/archives/libc6_2.17-97_amd64.deb' error mentioned previously, easily corrected by 'sudo apt-get install -f' followed by restarting the UP process.

Any ideas?

Hi Daniel
we had for some time reports that automounting of optical media was no working as it was supposed but mass-storage devices were;
somehow now it got worst, they are both MIA.
Ideally we should after the "dust" settles a bit more in this UP migration start looking into that.
here are some links (there's more in the forum and outside, it's just a starting point)

Yeah I regretted that bit after I posted the message because it seemed negative. Also, Windows does not offer application updates except for MS products. BTW the quarterly change has not taken effect yet. That's next time. I guess around April 15th, tax time. I'll tune in then and see whether there's anything I should be aware of. I think it's a good thing that updates are going quarterly instead of monthly though, good both for developers and users.

Yep just checked after latest 1/15/14 update. Also same issue about SD cards and Optical DVD drive not showing.
As have a internal multi-card reader. That shows up in bios during polling of devices and reserved letters in Windows even when empty.

Was working before update now no SD card or DVD drive with disc in shown or mounted. Tho old entry in System settings>Removable devices shows the old entry Nikon D90 to automount when attached. Same SD card same slot. No Go

But Sansa Mp3 player and Nook Color Tablet attach and mount just fine.

Does show them when booting up with dvd in drive and SD card attached

But once you unmount them or safely remove them they will not come back on re-insertion.
Again no problems with multiple connect or disconnect with Nook Color Tablet or Sansa Mp3 player.
Or the permanently attached Usb Drives.

Haven't heard back if anybody else having issues with DVD drive or SD cards not showing up in Dolphin?
Post Above this shows issue.

Wondering if it has something to do with this?
Can't access or eject (some) USB storage after UP 7 [SOLVED]

As one of the post in that thread have a couple of Debian bugs that may have something to do with gvfs?

And another question: When I can get a CD to mount it shows up in /media/orbmiser/
not in just /media with other devices.

Is this normal and why the additional home folder in media?

I do not have the problem above and i can not reproduce it. However, could it be that automatic mounting was enabled in system settings when the transition from mounting a new device in /media to /media/username took place? So, perhaps now KDE "remembers" those devices being in /media, looks for them and either finds an empty folder or no folder at all?

That would also explain why devices already present at startup work.

I am just speculating here. But you can test this by going to system settings/removable devices and uncheck automatic mounting, if it is enabled. What is going to happen is that, devices will be recognized, will appear under "places", but they will not be mounted until you click on them. If that solves the problem, then that is what is happening.

I am simply speculating here, since i don't have the problem, so i have no real way to check if i am wrong or not.

Thanks nope but what is weird the DVD drive will mount if I run the Ntfs configuration tool.
Once it runs then the DVD shows up unmounted.

Insert SD card and still no show in devices pane.
Tho have it selected to Automount on Attach.

Update: Rolled back to Jan. 15th before updates.
Devices list normal DVD & SD cards show in device tree when DVD or SD card is inserted.
Clicking on them mounts them and readable.

Update 2: Just did the Jan. update and back to same issue. DVD and SD cards do not populate the device tree in Dolphin.

Wondering if this issue is appropriate for this thread? Should I start my own?

I just wanted to post to let you know that you're not alone.

I have the same issue with the SD card reader. My laptop has an integrated SDHC card reader. I have such cards (for one of my cameras, doncha know :) ). The reader has always worked. But not since I did this update.

Tail of dmesg:

Code: Select all

[  413.516154] mmc0: error -110 whilst initialising SD card
[  413.519737] sdhci-pci 0000:07:01.1: Will use DMA mode even though HW doesn't fully claim to support it.

[  415.268130] mmc0: error -110 whilst initialising SD card
[  415.272128] sdhci-pci 0000:07:01.1: Will use DMA mode even though HW doesn't fully claim to support it.

[  416.940145] sdhci-pci 0000:07:01.1: Will use DMA mode even though HW doesn't fully claim to support it.
Remove the card and there's no additions to dmesg

The laptop is dual-booted with Win7. The same reader ( 8-) ) and same card results in Win7 mounting the card and being able to read it with no issues.

Time for me to do some research :)

WOW - simple!

I read the thread, installed lshw, read the man page for it (well, I glanced at most of it), ran the command with no arguments (that's a lot of info dumped right there), inserted the SDHC, and ..... wait for it .... it was recognized and I was able t mount it with no issues.

Then, as a test, I unmounted the card, rebooted the computer, inserted the card into the read and .... BAM! ..... recognized.

This was a simple fix. I wonder what was causing the problem. What was missed (messed up) in this last UP. Time for me to do that research I was talking about.

Here's what I know
  1. All the below observations are on SolydK machine - no testing has been done on Xfce.
  2. After the UP and before installing lshw, my laptop (specs below) did not even recognize the fact that I inserted the SDHC card.
  3. Installation of lshw did not pull in any additional dependencies. I used the command

    Code: Select all

    apt-cache dependencies lshw
    to determine what dependencies there might be (there were three) and one or more of them were updated with this UP (I searched /var/log/dpkg.log for that information).
  4. After the installation of lshw, insertion of the SDHC card seems to be always recognized, even as the first thing after a system reboot.
  5. After

    Code: Select all

    apt-get remove --purge lshw
    and a system reboot, the SDHC card is still recognized an readily mounted.
  6. Insertion of DVD into drive and closing the drive - the computer recognizes that the disk is inserted and spins up the drive. SolydK - does not recognize the disk. No note made of this even in dmesg.
  7. Remove the DVD, reinstall lshw, reboot, insert DVD, results same as in #6
  8. With the disk still in the drive and the drive closed, run

    Code: Select all

    $ lshw
    and the disk is recognized and made available for mounting.
  9. With the DVD drive open, run lshw and wait for it to finish, close the DVD drive --> disk not recognized by SolydK
  10. Wait for the disk to spin down, with the drive still closed run lshw, now the DVD is recongized and clicking on the device notifier allows the DVD to be mounted.
  11. In Dolphin, release and eject the DVD, open the drive, close the drive --> computer spins up the disk for a moment, SolydK does not acknowledge the event.
  12. Repeating steps in #10 produces the same results - which is a good thing :)

Code: Select all

Here is the system specs, the first part is the output from lshw (I thought it might be useful) and at the bottom is the output from "inxi -Fxxx"

Let me know if there is log file info that would be useful. I know there's probably such data available, but I don't know enough to even know where to start looking. There was nothing really interesting in dmesg related to the insertion/mounting of the DVD disk, just acknowledgement of the disk being mounted

WOW - simple!

I read the thread, installed lshw, read the man page for it (well, I glanced at most of it), ran the command with no arguments (that's a lot of info dumped right there), inserted the SDHC, and ..... wait for it .... it was recognized and I was able t mount it with no issues.

Then, as a test, I unmounted the card, rebooted the computer, inserted the card into the read and .... BAM! ..... recognized.

This was a simple fix. I wonder what was causing the problem. What was missed (messed up) in this last UP. Time for me to do that research I was talking about.
Yep running lshw in term works for DVD drive and SD card but doesn't stick between boots for me and requires running lshw again.

Problem may be linked to Bug in udisksd also enabling polling in kernel solves the issue?
http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=109433

/usr/lib/udisks2/udisksd: Doesn't event on CD/DVD media insertion
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=725978
Since the upgrade from udisks to udisks2, events for CD/DVD media
insertion aren't emitted any more, leading to desktop relying on it not
to automount/autodetect CDs or DVDs.

Simply trying to interact with the media triggers some event and is
then enough, like playing using MPlayer, or using lsdvd. Also, if
udisks (1)'s daemon is running, it also makes udisks2's one work.

In practice, /usr/lib/udisks2/udisksd doesn't report any event on
CD/DVD media insertion. /usr/lib/udisks/udisks-daemon does.
As running any program seems to poll the device and then it shows up in Dolphin.

Seems to be about system is not constantly polling for new device insertion?
Guessing here and no Linux wizard.

This matches the behavior I've observed .. at least as far as the DVD is concerned. The SDHC reader is working just fine. In fact, after a reboot (three actually) and no other activity then opening Firefox, I just inserted the SDHC card and the event was immediately recongnized.

As I don't use DVD disks much (about three times in the last year or so), I'm happy with this "fix".

I believe it to be something in the kernel. At any rate, it will be interesting to see what happens with this in the next UP or two.

Thanks ScottQuier, that was very detailed testing. I like that :)

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I can make this conclusion:
There is a known bug preventing SD cards, and DVD's to be recognized on insertion.
Running lshw solves that, but only when it's run manually.
Unfortunately, adding lshw to the ISO's won't help to solve this issue.

Yep from what I gleamed it's the result of going from udisks to usdisks2 and something lacking about polling devices on insertion. Also another is whether the kernel has polling enabled or not.

Seems just like another one of those low-level can of worms things. As not all have the issue.
So also seems a specific hardware setup issue?

Just shooting Blanks in the Dark here :o

Message #50 in http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=725978 seems to suggest this as a possible solution:
Thanks for the link. Kernel polling can also be enabled with this in /etc/rc.local:

echo 2000 > /sys/module/block/parameters/events_dfl_poll_msecs
It's also mentioned in message #35 in http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=713877

Perhaps there's a way to add this to the iso?

I'm a software engineer (for 30+ years) so I should have the process figured out by now. :)

Being an engineer, I also tend (try) to be very pendantic. I would agree with all three of your statements if the word "known" were removed from the first. I don't know if it's a known issue or not.

Including lshw in the iso will at least make that tool more readily available but it will not solve the problem for most of SolydXK user base.

ETA: Yes, the DVD issue is a KNOWN bug ... Thanks grizzler for the link!

ETA2: But, that still doesn't explain why my (and others?) SDHC readers were borked. Or why running lshw got mine working and that the fix stuck across multiple reboots when it doesn't stick for others.

How about running the command

Code: Select all

udisks --enumerate
This will start the old daemon. If it works, you can make it run automatically at startup.
