Re: Can't mount sd card in Antix 17.4.1

Can you try these new kernel debs for me to see if I have fixed it or not? These are stretch (antiX-17 series kernel debs) https://download.tuxfamily.org/antix/Testing/ Download to a folder and in that folder, in a root terminal, dpkg -i *.deb thanks I just tried and it worked! :) The sd card was r...

Re: Can't mount sd card in Antix 17.4.1

Could you send me the kernel config file in /boot for 4.9.126 and then I can compare them with changes. (I assume you are using 64 bit) Thanks. Never mind - I found a copy. FWIW, I found that this driver "rtsx_pci" which is the one used by the card reader isn't loaded/present in 4.9.182. I found a ...

Re: Can't mount sd card in Antix 17.4.1

It has something to do with the kernel. I've just updated the kernel in 17.2 from 4.9.126 to 4.9.182 and now the sd card's gone. :( It's a live system running with persistence enabled.

Re: Can't mount sd card in Antix 17.4.1

sudo modprobe -a tifm_core tifm_sd tifm_7xx1 What's the expected output of this command? The command will load the potentially "missing"/not-loaded yet driver (modules) into the kernel. And with some luck the kernel will be able to recognize the plugged-in sdcard, e.g in Gparted. If not in gparted,...

Re: Can't mount sd card in Antix 17.4.1

Totally weird. Indeed. Maybe's a bug no one else has spotted cause probably nobody else, at least in this forum, has a hp 2000 notebook running antix from a usb stick with persistence enabled which also has a card reader slot, so nobody has ever complaint about antix not seeing and/or mounting thei...

Re: How-to convert antiX to an XFCE4 based Distro (tutorial)

I often recommend over installation so that the current version of things are in place. You certainly are free to cut them out, as you wish. But if you look at a lot of my tutorials, you'll see that. Lately I'm starting to remember to leave a note to the effect of 'you may or may not need all of th...

Re: How-to convert antiX to an XFCE4 based Distro (tutorial)

I have just published a tutorial on converting antiX (specifically alpha2 version of antiX19) to an XFCE4 based Distro. You may view it here: http://eirenicon.org/2019/05/26/converting-antix-to-an-xfce4-based-distro-a-tutorial/ Be advised: I believe the tutorial should work with version 17.4 of ant...

Re: Can't mount sd card in Antix 17.4.1

My simple mind would try the following.... copy the files to another device or maybe two devices. Make certain I got what I want safely stored. Then I'd wipe the sd and reformat it. I'm guessing you have some weird little bit that's doing you in and from the sounds of it, you'll never find the litt...
