Here the result:

Sorry, my English is bad.

That will be the cause!

Ventoy created the USB stick sdc:
sdc2 vfat with the folders EFI grub tool ventoy
sdc1 exfat for the ISOs

I now have 2 options:
either
A. I'll create the stick again
or
B. I will reformat sdc1 (fat32 or ext2 or ext4)

I will probably choose B
Which is better in this case, ext2 or ext4?
So far I have always used fat32 for USB sticks

I put the two modules from beny (exfat-utils...xzm and fuse-exfat...xzm) in the Porteus/modules folder so that they are activated every time it starts.
After restart I then recreated the USB stick.
No success!
sdc1 cannot be mounted.
Reformatting does not work either:

Code: Select all

root@porteus:/home/guest# mkfs -t ext2 /dev/sdc1
mke2fs 1.44.1 (24-Mar-2018)

I wait and wait, nothing happens!
I give up!
exfat obviously cannot be used in my Porteus 4.0

hi kulle take a look at this kernel config:

Code: Select all

#
# DOS/FAT/EXFAT/NT Filesystems
#
CONFIG_FAT_FS=y
CONFIG_MSDOS_FS=y
CONFIG_VFAT_FS=y
CONFIG_FAT_DEFAULT_CODEPAGE=437
CONFIG_FAT_DEFAULT_IOCHARSET="iso8859-1"
# CONFIG_FAT_DEFAULT_UTF8 is not set
# CONFIG_EXFAT_FS is not set
CONFIG_NTFS_FS=y
# CONFIG_NTFS_DEBUG is not set
CONFIG_NTFS_RW=y
# end of DOS/FAT/EXFAT/NT Filesystems
and without the main fs support i think you can't do this task,this is mine when i compile the new one i have to put on Y all.and i love terminal but for the file system task i use gparted i have to see the work on progress.

Guys, mounting exfat is no problem if exfat-utils and fuse-exfat are activated.

Proof: ( @ Kulle v4.0 64bit Xfce )

Code: Select all

root@porteus:/home/guest# blkid
/dev/sdc1: UUID="B1B6-C7AE" TYPE="exfat" PTTYPE="dos" PARTUUID="000c8179-01"

root@porteus:/home/guest# mkdir /mnt/test
root@porteus:/home/guest# mount.exfat /dev/sdc1 /mnt/test
FUSE exfat 1.3.0
root@porteus:/home/guest# cd /mnt/test
root@porteus:/mnt/test# mkdir bla blub
root@porteus:/mnt/test# ls
bla/  blub/
root@porteus:/mnt/test#

After I had to cancel (see #19 above)
the USB stick is no longer recognized,
not recognized on USB 2.0, not recognized on USB 3.0.
The stick is now unusable? Can this still be repaired?

The exfat filesystem (above #6) was created by Ventoy:
sdc2 vfat with the folders EFI grub tool ventoy
sdc1 exfat for the ISOs

Now I self formatted another stick with exfat via mkfs.
Test:

Code: Select all

root@porteus:/home/guest# blkid
/dev/sda1: UUID="1E4C39F74C39C9F3" TYPE="ntfs" PARTUUID="5125f0f7-01"
... ...
/dev/loop16: TYPE="squashfs"
/dev/sdc1: UUID="AB9C-208B" TYPE="exfat" PTTYPE="dos" PARTUUID="00096f55-01"
root@porteus:/home/guest# mkdir /mnt/test
root@porteus:/home/guest# mount.exfat /dev/sdc1 /mnt/test
FUSE exfat 1.3.0
root@porteus:/home/guest# cd /mnt/test
root@porteus:/mnt/test# mkdir eins zwei
root@porteus:/mnt/test# ls
eins/  zwei/
root@porteus:/mnt/test# 
Thanks Donald.
So the exfat created by Ventoy cannot be mounted??
Has anyone used Vontoy?

Yes. You must to flash controller.

Welcome to Window$.
Download ChipGenius, get info about Flash Drive and searh firmware tool at Google via Controller Vendor, Controller Part-Number, Flash ID code.
In firmware tool try different settings for repiar USB Flash drive.
I have recovered a lot of flash drives.

Is the stick displayed as a device with the blkid command?

Code: Select all

root@porteus:/home/guest# blkid
If yes, it might be enough to zero (wipe) the stick.

So far I have always used fat32 for USB sticks
Since USB thumbdrives have limited write circles, I would use a non-journaling FS, or here: ext2

I hope you can revive the stick by either donald's or blaze's tips above.
Cheers!

Bad idea, coz

Use ext4 for ext2 file systems

Code: Select all

# dmesg | grep sdb
EXT4-fs (sdb1): mounting ext2 file system using the ext4 subsystem
EXT4-fs (sdb1): warning: mounting unchecked fs, running e2fsck is recommended
EXT4-fs (sdb1): mounted filesystem without journal. Opts: (null)
I want to migrate to F2FS on the kernel 5.10.5

f2fs don't boot so you have to make a separate boot directory for....

@Donald
The stick is not displayed as a device with the blkid command.
After I connected this defective USB stick, also sdb is no longer displayed.
Also the icon on the desktop has also disappeared.
sdb is the Boot device with Porteus.
The system is still there (I always use copy2ram)
