Hello, after the last updates my SparkyLinux GameOver edition doesn't recognize my external hard drive formatted as exFat. It always worked fine but now it can't be recognized anymore. What's wrong and how can i solve this problem? Thanks

Check do you have the "exfat-utils" package installed.

ex-fat utils are already installed but don't work. I tried to unplug and then plug this hard drive but still Sparky can't recognize ex-fat. I also have another linux distro on another partition and the hard drive works perfectly. I don't know what else to do to let it work on Sparky..

bin

What happens if you run

sudo mount -t exfat /dev/sdxxx /media/exfat

You need to establish the drive ID as it could be sdb1 sdc1 etc depending on your setup.

I normally use dmesg to show me what the drive is but other methods are available

it says : can't find in /etc/fstab.
What does it mean?

I have a similar problem with the flash drive, I have both packages installed: exfat-fuse exfat-utils
"unknown filesystem type 'exfat'"

I'm also having this issue. Did a fresh install to switch to rolling. Used the minimal cli and got all setup with cinnamon. Tried to move my ISO's over for vbox and can't read my usbs. Downloaded thunar for above suggestion and have the packs installed as wel. What am I missing?

Run sparky with standard debian kernel.
Sparky kernel not have module exfat.

Sparky's kernel 5.9.6 is compiled with exfat enabled now.
