Invisible unmounted partitions
« on: April 08, 2021, 11:45:41 am »
Hi,
My partitions are not listed anymore in the file manager after some of the last updates.
I also get 'print_req_error: I/O error, dev fd0, sector 0 error' (I don't have floppy) and the pc starts very slowly.
What should I change?

What you should change is the amount of information that you provide us. 

Start with output of "inxi -brp"   

convert terminal output to code via the # button.   Copy text from terminal  into between the code   /code xml tags

example of "inxi -a"

Code: [Select]
inxi -A
Audio:     Device-1: Intel Xeon E3-1200 v3/4th Gen Core Processor HD Audio driver: snd_hda_intel
           Device-2: Intel 8 Series/C220 Series High Definition Audio driver: snd_hda_intel
           Sound Server: ALSA v: k4.19.0-16-amd64

We should not have to go back to previous posts to get info

Not sure why there are all those squashfs parttions     I am not sure if most GUI file managers would notice squashfs.

Squashfs is a compressed read-only file system for Linux. Squashfs compresses files, inodes and directories, and supports block sizes from 4 KiB up to 1 MiB for greater compression. Several compression algorithms are supported. Squashfs is also the name of free software, licensed under the GPL, for accessing Squashfs filesystems.

Squashfs is intended for general read-only file-system use and in constrained block-device memory systems (e.g. embedded systems) where low overhead is needed.


inxi did not show your DE so I am guessing a tiling WM or Openbox.   

Your hard drive is large enough, I have had smaller storage systems on atoms.  It is real old computer, for an install  I would have just gone with a /    and a  /home    for partitions - both ext4.   And if your memory is 4 GB or less, some would prefer to use 32bit.

Hi
Thank you very much for your answer!
I think this Squashfs are from some snaps I've installed.
My problem is that I don't see the other partitions that were visible before some of the last updates. And before that, the PC started much faster.
It's not such a big issue because when it loads, the PC works fine and I can access the partitions in other ways. I just thought there is some easy setting I could adjust to see them listed under devices in the file manager as before.
My DE is LXQt.
