I'm having problems with my Drobo on this release; it works perfectly on my 8.04LTS desktop and on the factory kernel that shipped w/ my plug

root@divaplug:/home/matt# mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt/drobo1
mount: you must specify the filesystem type



So I try:
root@divaplug:/home/matt# mount -t ext3 /dev/sdb1 /mnt/drobo1
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb1,
       missing codepage or helper program, or other error
       In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
       dmesg | tail  or so



dmesg | tail returns:

sd 3:0:0:0: [sdb] Attached SCSI disk
VFS: Can't find ext4 filesystem on dev sdb1.
FAT: bogus number of reserved sectors
VFS: Can't find a valid FAT filesystem on dev sdb1.
VFS: Can't find an ext2 filesystem on dev sdb1.
VFS: Can't find ext3 filesystem on dev sdb1.
VFS: Can't find ext4 filesystem on dev sdb1.
FAT: bogus number of reserved sectors
VFS: Can't find a valid FAT filesystem on dev sdb1.
VFS: Can't find ext3 filesystem on dev sdb1.

Would  you mind posting or otherwise delivering the config that you used to build this kernel?  I previously posted about my ext3 formatted drobo not mounting; i since have discovered that it mounts fine if formatted as fat32 (yuk).  I tried building a 2.6.30-rc6 from source with a slightly modified kirkwood_defconfig but after inserting it into sheevaplug-installer-alpha-6 (from whence i obtained your build) it would not mount the root fs during the install; not sure why but i'd like to see what is different about this one.

Thanks,


EDIT:   NM, i guess i should have looked at your link to the kernel and modules in the original post.

Hi, i'm newbee

looks great, the kernel from Marvell doesnt support NFS & usb-automount (when i plug a usb stick or USB-HD , always need to mount it manually)
my Questions:
1. does the new kernel support automount ? since i want to use the plug as a Fileserver with attached USB-HDs (which are on only when needed , so it should me automatically mouted in /media, samba & nfs need only share on /media)
2. can you add support for hfs/hfsplus ?

thanx alot

The kernel will not ever automount anything for you, and even the rootfs "mount" that the kernel performs at boot time will do bad things if a mount command is not executed to formally mount the root filesystem. Mounting is an operation that links a kernelspace filesystem driver to a userspace mountpoint, and it must be initiated from userspace.
As for automounting, as has been suggested, the best approach is probably to use udev and write custom rules for when a drive is connected. The kernel, as a shortcut, calls udev scripts when certain kernel events occur, and udev can automatically make the kernel event into a userspace event, whether that event is creating a folder in /media to show that a filesystem can be mounted, or, in your case, actually mounting a filesystem there. You would probably also need it to somehow notify a management application that the drive has been mounted.

Hello cbxbiker61,

Could you repost the modules for linux 2.6.30-rc6? Or could you provide a link for them, I just need them for some very important testing...... Thank you in advance for the help.

Hope you could grant this request.
