Re: ldm - Lightweight Device Mounter

Hi,
it works fine with my usb key, but my external drive don't mount... Any ideas ?
Anyway, great soft ! Finally an automounter that works for me...

Re: ldm - Lightweight Device Mounter

Can you show the output of dmesg after plugging in the drive ?

Re: ldm - Lightweight Device Mounter

Hello again.

Debugging ldm, in the second call to device_unmount, the "dev" struct in the caller function (udev_device in udev_device_get_devnode) is totally messed up. Here it's a gdb dump of it:

Breakpoint 1, device_unmount (dev=0x805dd90) at ldm.c:490
(gdb) print *dev
$4 = {udev = 0x6d6f682f, parent_device = 0x6f742f65, syspath = 0x6e696e <Address 0x6e696e out of bounds>, devpath = 0x11 <Address 0x11 out of bounds>, sysname = 0x73666e <Address 0x73666e out of bounds>, sysnum = 0xb7f67578 <main_arena+312> "pu\366\267pu\366\267xu\366\267xu\366\267\200u\366\267\200u\366\267\210u\366\267\210u\366\267\220u\366\267\220u\366\267\230u\366\267\230u\366\267\240u\366\267\240u\366\267\250u\366\267\250u\366\267\260u\366\267\260u\366\267\270u\366\267\270u\366\267\300u\366\267\300u\366\267\310u\366\267\310u\366\267\320u\366\267\320u\366\267\330u\366\267\330u\366\267\340u\366\267\340u\366\267\350u\366\267\350u\366\267\360u\366\267\360u\366\267\370u\366\267\370u\366\267", devnode = 0x804eee8 " \337\005\b/sr0", devnode_mode = 209, subsystem = 0x805a130 "204", devtype = 0x804deb8 "", driver = 0x2c656d69 <Address 0x2c656d69 out of bounds>, action = 0x73726576 <Address 0x73726576 out of bounds>, devpath_old = 0x722c333d <Address 0x722c333d out of bounds>, knodename = 0x657a6973 <Address 0x657a6973 out of bounds>, id_filename = 0x3732333d <Address 0x3732333d out of bounds>, envp = 0x772c3836, monitor_buf = 0x657a6973 <Address 0x657a6973 out of bounds>, monitor_buf_len = 926036797, devlinks_list = {udev = 0x6e2c3836, node = {next = 0x656c6d61, prev = 0x35323d6e}, entries = 0x61682c35, entries_cur = 1881957490, entries_max = 1869901682, unique = 61}, properties_list = {udev = 0x6d69742c, node = {next = 0x363d6f65, prev = 0x722c3030}, entries = 0x61727465, entries_cur = 842888046, entries_max = 1667593004, unique = 61}, sysattr_value_list = {udev = 0x756f6d2c, node = {next = 0x6461746e, prev = 0x313d7264}, entries = 0x312e3237, entries_cur = 825306678, entries_max = 808594992, unique = 52}, sysattr_list = {udev = 0x76746e75, node = {next = 0x3d737265, prev = 0x6f6d2c33}, entries = 0x70746e75, entries_cur = 1031041647, entries_max = 875770417, unique = 44}, tags_list = {udev = 0x7270746e, node = {next = 0x3d6f746f, prev = 0x2c706475}, entries = 0x61636f6c, entries_cur = 1869373292, entries_max = 1849518947, unique = 111}, seqnum = 3618414965597430881, usec_initialized = 3328214211925258542, timeout = 3420210, devlink_priority = 208, refcount = 48, devnum = 8227006956519675144, ifindex = 1702521203, watch_handle = 926036797, maj = 1999386678, min = 1702521203, parent_set = 61, subsystem_set = 51, devtype_set = 50, devlinks_uptodate = 55, envp_uptodate = 54, tags_uptodate = 56, driver_set = 44, info_loaded = 110, db_loaded = 97, uevent_loaded = 109, is_initialized = 108, sysattr_list_read = 101, db_persist = 110}
(gdb)

As devnode isn't null but it have bad values, the segfault appear.

I put here the dev struct content in a first right call to the unmount function (both outputs are from the same "eject" event):

Breakpoint 1, device_unmount (dev=0x8059de8) at ldm.c:490

I's the disk partitioned with GPT or encripted?

Can you put the output of "fdisk -l /dev/sdd"?

Re: ldm - Lightweight Device Mounter

Here is the output of "fdisk -l /dev/sdc" :

Disk /dev/sdc: 500.1 GB, 500107862016 bytes, 976773168 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

There should be only one partition on the drive, in ext4 or ext3, nothing encrypted.

Thanks for your help. smile

Re: ldm - Lightweight Device Mounter

@tonin
meh, seems that udev is sending the same dev struct that we've unreferenced and destroyed...to be honest using eject on my system issues just one time the device_unmount. can you trace the code path?

oblivious question, does it work when you mount it by hand?
also, no, it doesn't handle Android smartphones unless they're using the ums protocol

Re: ldm - Lightweight Device Mounter

I tried to mount my drive with "mount -t ext3 /dev/sdc /media", but it failed. Here is the output of demsg :

I don't know why it won't try ext3 even if I state it in the command...

Hmmm, in your own code you comment about the fact that ejecting a cdrom calls twice the unmount function because udev send two change events when the eject button is pressed.

In my system, with udev 174 (I don't want to use system.d because my custom linux is very dependent on sysV init system), "udevadm monitor" show two change events when I press the eject button.

Can you test if in your system the change event appears only once? In this way, may be a different udev rule or something like this ....

Re: ldm - Lightweight Device Mounter

Sorry my mistake ... the two "change" events are one from the kernel and the other from udev ...

Well, the code path is this:

I put a breakpoint at check_registered_devices in the main loop.

May be that the first or second call to this function when the cdrom was ejected one or two times don't segfault. In a third or fourth call (I stepped all calls), depending on the value of outbounds pointers in dev structure it segfault.

I don't understand the check_registered_devices code. You have a loop with a condition that says "if g_devices[j] isn't NULL and NOT device_is_mounted)", in this way you call to device_unmount function.

¿Why to call device_unmount function if device isn't mounted? I see tha device_unmount do many things in addition to umount the device, but the problem is the first line in device_unmount that calls to udev_device_get_devnode(dev) and if dev have an outbound pointer in devnode field the segfault raise.

Without completely understand your code, I think that if a device is in your g_device array and isn't mounted, you only need to free the associated mallocs that are allocated yet, and put a NULL in the g_device[j] array member.....

Regards.

P.D: I tried to change device_unmount call by device_destroy, but it seems that this isn't right because ldm segfault even mounting a cdrom.

Meh, I think it's time for a 0.4.1, I discovered that device_change had a really bad logic error sad if the latest git works fine for you then I'll tag the new version and package it.

Re: ldm - Lightweight Device Mounter

I've been using the non-git version for a while, and recently (sorry not added a usb drive for a few weeks) it's changed its behaviour. I tried the git version and it's the same.
When I unmount a device, ldm immediately remounts it. I've changed some set-up stuff on the machine, mainly systemd stuff and an architecture switch. Not sure whether any of that will have had an effect.

dmesg just shows the initial insertion, any other logs I should post?


Also, is it possible to add the ability to specify the mount point directory - eg. /mnt ?

Re: ldm - Lightweight Device Mounter

Are you sure there's no udev rule that could interfere ? I can't reproduce it here with any usb stick, how are you unmounting it ?
Also, you can adjust the MOUNT_PATH define in ldm.c to /mnt/ smile

/etc/udev/rules.d is empty, the /usr/lib/udev/rules.d doesn't have anything I've personally added. Grepping it for "/media", "usb" or "mount" throw up nothing that looks to be the culprit, and the mount path is always the same as under ldm (I'll be double checking that by changing it as per below, at some point).

I've used both:

$ pumount /media/mountdir
# umount /media/mountdir

With both the directory gets deleted, then recreated, and the drive is mounted. I'm assuming that this means it's getting unmounted, then mounted.
I use inotifywait on the media dir to look for dirs created and removed and fire a inotifysend when it happens. So I see the dir deleted then dir created events.

Re: ldm - Lightweight Device Mounter

Okay sorry, my fault I think. The disk I was using was a different one to the ones I had been using before - I just grabbed one to test my set-up and it looks like it's corrupted. It occurred to me to check an old, working one (had to go and find it) and it only seems to happen with this one disk.

It's definitely ldm mounting it as nothing happens with ldm stopped, and stopping ldm unmounts the drive and removes the dir.

I ran udevadm, plugged the drive in and unmounted it as part of my tests. I've included it below in case it's any use for you. The first change near the bottom is where I executed the umount.

Re: ldm - Lightweight Device Mounter

hey, got it smile is it strangely formatted/partitioned isn't it? the kernel detaches it by issuing a change event instead of a remove one, I'll try to reproduce it as soon as I have some spare time big_smile

Yes, fdisk doesn't recognise it. At some point I'm going to format it - I have no recollection what I put on it, it's been sitting on my desk for a year.
It's a bit of on edge case though, dealing with a dodgy drive?

Re: ldm - Lightweight Device Mounter

meh doesn't look like a faulty drive, more like an oddly partitioned/encrypted/with some weird filesystem on that the kernel handles this way

Re: ldm - Lightweight Device Mounter

Actually now you mention it that rings a bell. I'll check it when I'm back in the office tomorrow.

Re: ldm - Lightweight Device Mounter

Yep, no idea what it was, as nothing recognised even the partition table. There was also 4 partitions on it and again, nothing recognised them.
Anyway I wiped it, put on a new partition table and new partition and it behaves as expected now. Sorry for the hassle.

Re: ldm - Lightweight Device Mounter

The git version can now run a script when a device is mounted/unmounted. Enjoy big_smile

Re: ldm - Lightweight Device Mounter

Thank you for this nice piece of software! smile I've been having screwed up or overblown setups for a while and this one seems really neat.

The only problem I'm having with it: I've encrypted multiple drives with TrueCrypt. One of them is the data partition of my pc (ntfs) which I use on both Windows and Arch.
Whenever I try to mount a TrueCrypt volume (e.g. via truecrypt /dev/sda4), I get the following error:

Failed to write lock '/dev/mapper/truecrypt1': Resource temporarily unavailable
Error opening '/dev/mapper/truecrypt1': Resource temporarily unavailable
Failed to mount '/dev/mapper/truecrypt1': Resource temporarily unavailable

If I issue the truecrypt command a second time, it works - BUT: the new "device" gets mounted with it's UUID in a place like /media/6CE81880E8184AA and not where it usually appears ( /media/truecrypt1 if you don't specify another place manually. I do want to have them there).
If I disable LDM, everything works fine.
Can I somehow exclude truecrypt volumes from being automounted? And why do the three errors concerning /dev/mapper/truecrypt1 happen?
