I have done this more than once. It 'just works' to have only one drive available for the install. smile You can also use uuid magic to sort it . . .

I have 2 desktop machines with all 6 sata drives in use, learned my lesson a few times just writing to a USB drive or formatting. So easy to open a quick swap bay door and change the assigned location. On the other hand, easy to open all the doors except the one you want to write to. smile

Re: Crowz 5.0 Daedalus amd64 release

Thanks to Camtaf, zephyr, and golinux for your replies. I will try the install in about a week, when I have some extra time off from work. If I encounter any problems, I'll be back. smile

The "Readme" on the Crowz Sourceforge download site has some good info regarding where the "Install" icon is located in the file manager PCManFM, and use "live" for the password.

You are very welcome, will do my best to help you get a clean, safe install smile

cheers

Re: Crowz 5.0 Daedalus amd64 release

So I just installed Crowz and have a problem . . . the system is not recognizing when I plug in my flash drive nor my external hard drive. How do I fix this? I need to access a couple of text files on them to set up the OS the way I like it.

EDIT
So it shows up in gparted, but the "mount" option is greyed out.

Re: Crowz 5.0 Daedalus amd64 release

Not sure about Crowz, but Devuan has a Removable Drives and Media app within Settings. If available, this might help you influence how the system reacts when you plug in removable storage?

Otherwise, perhaps you could perhaps research mounting manually with "lsblk" (to discover what your drive shows up as), "mkdir" to make a mount point, and "mount" command to introduce your drive to the system.

For example (don't copy and paste my ramblings)
If "sudo lsblk" shows your drive is /dev/sdc, and the partition you want to access is /dev/sdc1
"sudo mkdir -p /media/sdc1" will create a mountpoint and
"sudo mount /dev/sdc1 /media/sdc1" should make the contents readable. (perhaps not writeable without changing perms)

Maybe.

Of course, if you already have another device mounted as /media/sdc1, that might be a sign you need to adjust some things. Or wait until someone who actually knows what they are talking about, responds.

Good Luck.

For the sake of good order, it would probably be a good idea to unmount with something like:
"sudo umount -l /dev/sdc1"
before ripping out the removable.

Is your Trash icon missing as well? Then you want to install gvfs. Udisks2 will be installed along with it.

Re: Crowz 5.0 Daedalus amd64 release

These days, when adding drives to a system, (in /etc/fstab), it is best to use their UUID, as drives get their /dev/sd(?) as they are found on the system, not by what disk they actually are.

Before manually mounting a disk, plug it in, then run

sudo dmesg | tail

to find out what the system has designated it as, then you mount it to a directory, often just use /mnt. smile

Thanks to everyone who replied. Everything is recognized when I log into the Mate DE.

Yes it is missing (in Mate, I don't remember if it is missing in Openbox). But these 2 apps you mentioned are already installed. I remember having this problem last time with a Mate install. I just manually create a link on the desktop to Trash and find a suitable trash icon for it. Thanks.
