dietpi-drive_manager - unable to mount new drive

Post by Ekran »

I added a 4TB HDD to a odroid xu4. With

Code: Select all

it is not possible to mount. The drive /dev/sdb/ is not in the list - even not after refreh. So I search and found:
  • blkid and lsblk show the drive as /dev/sdb
  • dmesg show some lines, only a red line "[702660.982834] systemd-fstab-generator[12441]: Failed to create mount unit file /run/systemd/generator/-.mount, as it already exists. Duplicate entry in /etc/fstab?"
  • cat /etc/fstab show no entry for the drive
So I wonder what went wrong and made my manual entry
  • find UUID with blkid
  • create mountping mkdir/mnt/UUID
  • mount /dev/sdb /mnt/UUID
But why does dietpi-drive_manager not work? Should I try to find something in ... ve_manager?

Jep this is a known issue with the last version:
- Drives are not recognized, if no partition table is present (drive available as /dev/sda instead of /dev/sda1).

I have the same issue and this is fixed with v6.10 already. We are currently hard working on the larger drive_manager rework we made to get this released today. So stay tuned ;).
