Can´t get USB Stick to mount

Post by Sisko4 »

Hello there!

I have a little Problem with DietPi on my NanoPi Neo, it seems i can´t get any USB Stick to mount, so i can use the stick as external harddisk for qtorrent or openmediavault.

I tried two different sticks, formated in ext4. No results.

Hi,

Thanks for the report,

No USB detection, is known issue with the DEV 4.10 kernel update provided by ARMbian apt repo:
https://github.com/Fourdee/DietPi/issue ... -283112473

Fix:
The NanoPi Neo image download, has been replaced with STABLE 3.x kernel, you'll need to re-download and re-write the image:

I'm experiencing the same situation with my NanoPi NEO.

I'd like to avoid losing everything I've got configured on it so far. Is there a less destructive way to fix this (even if I have to wait untial a future update is released) or is there a way to preserve everything I've done so far in a way that can be restored after reimaging?

The kernel updates are provided and maintained by ARMbian, they will release an upgrade in the future, however, unsure when this is. Also, as the image you are running is using the DEV branch for ARMbian, the next update may be just as unstable.

You could attempt uninstalling the DEV kernel packages in apt, then reinstalling the stable packages, however, untested and worst case, may render system un-bootable.

That's what I thought, but I wanted to run it past you anyway just in case. :lol:

So, I've already downloaded 145 and will set it up over the weekend. It doesn't take long and I've already documented everything I've done to date. In case I can salvage anything from it I have pulled everything I could out of /etc and /home and anywhere else I put a config. That will take the edge off a bit I imagine.

Thanks for the timely response! This is a fantastic OS! :D

Great, thx Fourdee!

EDIT: It worked!
But how can i let qtorrent know that it should use the USB Stick as Download Folder?

Hi,

Once you have setup the USB stick in dietpi-driver_manager, you'll need to move your DietPi userdata to the USB stick:
http://dietpi.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=478#p2087

qBitTorrent will then store downloads in that location.
