Re: ldm - Lightweight Device Mounter

That's right too. It shouldn't be hard to fix anyway, could you please file a bug report about lvm on github so I won't forget?

Re: ldm - Lightweight Device Mounter

Finally moved from /media/ to /mnt/, also the config file is now at /etc/ldm.conf since the conf.d directory has been deprecated big_smile

Re: ldm - Lightweight Device Mounter

And the PKGBUILDs have been updated. wink

Talking about deprecation: /etc/rc.d/ldm could be dropped as well.

Re: ldm - Lightweight Device Mounter

The lvm branch contains some fixes that should solve the problems people reported with lvm partitions, I'm waiting for feedbacks!

May mount dir defined in ld.conf ? I like /media more.

Re: ldm - Lightweight Device Mounter

TheLemonMan, here are some rather important (to my mind) features which ldm lacks:

  • a man page (ldm is the first package I came across without it)

  • mounting multiple partitions on the same device

  • unmounting by udisks without gaining root privileges

  • multiple users support

Re: ldm - Lightweight Device Mounter

ldm should already mount all the partitions found on a devices, post a dmesg log if doesn't work for you.
The multiple user support is feasible, I'll work on it when I have a break from study heh

Re: ldm - Lightweight Device Mounter

Anyone would mind maintaining ldm on the AUR? As I do not use it, it would maybe be better if an actual user maintains it.

Re: ldm - Lightweight Device Mounter

I've disowned both the ldm and the ldm-git packages.
Sorry to sadden you but it is just that I don't use it anymore and think that it would be better if someone that actually uses it maintains it. wink

Re: ldm - Lightweight Device Mounter

A man page has been added! Along with a couple of bugfixes (NTFS and LVM related) and new functions smile
If there's nothing else to add/fix in the next couple of days I'll tag another stable release!

Re: ldm - Lightweight Device Mounter

I'm having issues unmounting with ldm.

My service file line is:

/usr/bin/ldm -u $USER_UID -g $USER_GID

Devices mount great, but if I try and use "ldm -r /mnt/LEXAR" (LEXAR is the folder that shows up), it does not unmount. I have to unmount with umount. I've also tried "ldm -r /mnt".

Any ideas?

EDIT: Silly me. Found the issue. Didn't add /usr/local/bin to my path.

REEDIT: Still does not unmount. Any ideas?

Re: ldm - Lightweight Device Mounter

There's a callback system that allows you to integrate ldm with your DE as you like smile
It's written in the man-page how to use it.
Oh, and please use the git version, the stable release has a slightly bug regarding the callback system.

Re: ldm - Lightweight Device Mounter

Sometime in the last 2-3 weeks, ldm has stopped mounting an SD card that it used to mount for me. Unfortunately it's been that long since I last mounted it, so I don't know what change may have triggered this. The issue occurs with both ldm and ldm-git (I used the PKGBUILD from the comments at AUR for ldm-git).

I can mount it manually, no problem, so I don't think the card's corrupt.
I've tried plugging in a usb disk and ldm mounted it, no problem.

Journalctl gives no errors, and if I run it in non-daemon mode, I get no errors.
Below are the dmesg output and udevadm monitor output:

Not sure what else I can provide.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Also, as an aside, there's nothing in the man page about the call-back mechanism (unless you mean the scripts that can be run at mount/umount time)?

Re: ldm - Lightweight Device Mounter

Thanks for this. smile
I had the sd card plugged in when I started it, so I unplugged it and re-plugged it back in, which is why it's repeated.

Re: ldm - Lightweight Device Mounter

Having a similar issue.

Downloaded the "ldm-git" package from the AUR yesterday, created the /etc/ldm.conf file with my IDs and started the service via "systemctl enable ldm.service".

systemctl | grep ldm

ldm.service                                                                                         loaded active running   lightweight device mounter

So it's also active.

Now I plugged in my USB stick and nothing happened. So I stopped the service, removed the stick, and started manually to get the verbose output:

/dev/sda
    dev_fs : (null)
/dev/sr0
    dev_fs : (null)
/dev/fd0
    dev_fs : (null)

Now I plugged in the USB stick:

/dev/sda
    dev_fs : (null)
/dev/sr0
    dev_fs : (null)
/dev/fd0
    dev_fs : (null)
/dev/sdb
    dev_fs : vfat
    dev_type : disk
    dev_idtype : disk

Output didn't change back to three devices when I unplugged the stick (don't know if it should).

I should also mention that PCManFM didn't manage to mount the drive either. I disabled all of PCManFM's mounting options prior to running ldm, btw.
The drive mounts just fine via "mount /dev/sdb /mnt"

Here's the output of "lsblk -f":

NAME   FSTYPE LABEL           UUID                                                        MOUNTPOINT
fd0                                                       
sda                                                       
├─sda1 ext4                            3bf33488-0c9c-4453-b8b2-8ee1c11d0977     /
└─sda2 ext4                            43c5fcd1-1d81-45c8-98c8-420a16b553c0     /home
sdb       vfat         PATRIOT      1AA4-0AB2                           
sr0

Any input? I have no idea what's going on.

Its not a good idea to put file systems on the root path of devices and i suspect the problem is here.

Partition your device and then put the file system on the partition.

Your device,as it currently is,is a special case/corner case and not everybody supports it as some tools expects to see file systems
only in partitions.
