Subject description: 2 hard disks cause puppy problems for finding flash drives
 

If I boot puppy 5.2, with 2 hard disks installed then I cannot see any flash drives.
Hard Disk 1:
/dev/sda1
/dev/sda2
/dev/sda4
/dev/sda3 is swap and does not show up as expected.
/dev/sdb1
/dev/sdb2
/dev/sdb4
/dev/sdb3 is swap and does not show up as expected.
Flash drives at this point should show up as /dev/sdc1...etc
This does not happen.
But if I boot with only 1 hard disk then I do see the flash drives when I plug them in.
The icon sr0 does correctly show up.
Also, if I boot puppy from a flash stick then I do not see the flash drive with puppy on it.
Puppy should show as /dev/sdc1 but does not show at all.
Also interestingly in the /dev directory there are entries for /dev/sdc3 - /dev/sdc15 BUT NO
/dev/sdc1 or /dev/sdc2.
Also as a side note: can you include the program "partimage" in your future releases.
Thanks.

I don't have two hard disks to test the problem described above, but I have a different problem that may be related or not.

* Right-click a partition and select "Run Desktop Drive Icon Manager
* Click the Icon Handler tab
* Select the second option, "Tick for auto-launch handler when media plugged in"
* Click OK
* Restart X

External media such as a pen drive is then supposed to be detected, mounted and opened in the file manager automatically. Instead, pmount pops up for a second and closes, pops up for a second and closes, pops up for a second and closes, pops up for a second and closes... forever!

Anyobody can confirm?

For both of you.
How are you running Puppy?
Live CD, frugal or full install?
Was it an upgrade?

The problem might be udevd which is dynamically handling also the device nodes .

of course the usb drivers have to be loaded, which is done by rc.sysinit using udev , which had many times corrupted files at /dev/.udev , which resulted in not loading several drivers , especially [e-o-u]hci_hcd .

you can try runnig
Code:
partprobe

to refresh the device nodes
or do it manually using
Code:
ls -l

and
Code:
mknod /dev/sda1 b 8 1

attached example how to create missing blockdevices
MkMissingDev.shell.gz
Description  Added $1 , don't know if this works
