exFat USB disk is not recognized by nautilus.
As far as I know is the exFAT file system not supported natively on Linux because it is developed by Microsoft and it comes with restrictive license which doesn’t allow open-source operating system to implement it natively.
$ uname -a && modinfo exfat Linux jagular 5.15.2-cwt-3.1.5-1 #1 SMP PREEMPT Sun Jul 2 23:54:37 +07 2023 riscv64 GNU/Linux filename: /lib/modules/5.15.2-cwt-3.1.5-1/kernel/fs/exfat/exfat.ko.xz alias: fs-exfat license: GPL description: exFAT filesystem support author: Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. vermagic: 5.15.2-cwt-3.1.5-1 SMP preempt mod_unload riscv name: exfat intree: Y
it seems to be also compiled in:
$ modinfo exfat name: exfat filename: (builtin) author: Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. description: exFAT filesystem support license: GPL file: fs/exfat/exfat alias: fs-exfat $ uname -a Linux starfive 5.15.0-gci005 #8 SMP Wed Jul 5 15:56:39 CEST 2023 riscv64 GNU/Linux
(this is my build on top of the debian release of June from RV2, but I didn’t add that support)
@bartoshe: which distribution/build are you using?
I remember those “GUI FileManager” is depend on udisk.
Maybe, It is have some config-wrong.
I am using the latest 062023 on Xorg with latest roms, and I have installed dependencies. I have also Ubuntu on orange pi, and it recognizes my USB disk as this.
One have to install two related packages by
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install exfat-fuse exfat-utils
and then try to access exFAT flash again.
It does not work, I omit apt-get update, and it does not install exfat-utils neither but fuse2 for rsicv64, that said it’s still unstable. the sbc does not shutdown until the usb disk is unplugged.
