Since upgrading from Debian Wheezy to Devuan Jessie, I have been having problems with USB drives, unable to mount them unless as root, and seeing strange things in Pcmanfm, like when connecting a drive that has been used as and installation medium (dd if=xxx.iso of=/dev/sdi) later re-formatted with gparted, I get two entries in the places list of Pcmanfm, one as sdi which, when clicked on, shows me the former content of the drive, and when I choose sdi1 shows me the new content.
Lates madness is as follows: root@ron:/home/ron # df Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on <snip> /dev/sdi1 7.3G 207M 6.7G 3% /media/773613f4-0e37-4c4b-9a6c-4facc813fbcc root@ron:/home/ron # fdisk -l /dev/sdi Disk /dev/sdi: 10 MiB, 10485760 bytes, 20480 sectors Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes Disklabel type: dos Disk identifier: 0x4857f764 Device Boot Start End Sectors Size Id Type /dev/sdi1 2048 20479 18432 9M 83 Linux why would fdisk show a (wrong) value different from that (correct) given by df ? If as I suspect that is linked to udev being buggered up, is there a way to delete all the data udev has accumulated over the years about all the units that were connected to the box, and start clean again ?
