Default Problem with USB drive
Hello,

I have just installed PCBSD in my laptop and I am liking it. It is a 64-bit install with ZFS file system and Xfce4 as the DE. I have no previous experience with FreeBSD, but I have used Linux for some years now. My laptop was never well supported by Linux and now it seems to be getting deprecated (the sound card and the video card are both giving me grieve). In turn, this far, everything is working very well in PCBSD.

I have plugged an external USB hard drive. It is a Western Digital WDBAAF0015HBK. It consists of 3 "partitions":

1.- Some kind of virtual CD with Windows programs I am not able to get rid of.
2.- An NTFS partition.
3.- An EXT4 partition.

This is the situation:

[mirix@sopranix] ~> camcontrol devlist
<Optiarc DVD RW AD-7593A 1.02> at scbus0 target 0 lun 0 (pass0,cd0)
<ST9320423ASG 0002SDM1> at scbus1 target 0 lun 0 (pass1,ada0)
<WD My Book 1110 1030> at scbus4 target 0 lun 0 (da0,pass2)
<WD Virtual CD 1110 1030> at scbus4 target 0 lun 1 (cd1,pass3)
<WD SES Device 1030> at scbus4 target 0 lun 2 (ses0,pass4)

Only the Virtual CD is auto-mounted and I am not able to mount any of the other partitions manually.

I have read in the Handbook that the external drives should be auto-mounted by the amount script and daemon and I would like to confirm if this is still the case. The drive works fine under Linux.

Any ideas?

Miro

Default Update
I have been able to mount ntfs and ext3 partitions, but not yet the ext4 partition?

[mirix@sopranix] ~> sudo mount -t ext2fs -o ro /dev/da0s2 /mnt/wd
mount: /dev/da0s2 : Invalid argument

Is it possible to mount it?

OK, I made it. The solution was installing sysutils/automount from the ports collection. This requires sysutils/fusefs-ntfs, sysutils/fusefs-exfat and sysutils/fusefs-ext4fuse.

Some configuration is needed. The program is not working as expected (I can only access the files as root), but at least I can copy some data over to my laptop while solving the issue...
