  1. Some of that might be out of date. Anyway I noticed in researching this the other day there are both CONFIG_THUNDERBOLT and CONFIG_USB4 kernel options. The USB4 settings are not enabled in the kernel for 6.9 but are for 6.10.
  2. Pretty sure this is not going to work with 6.9.2 as-is. Please unplug the device, open terminal window, and type (or paste) command above. This creates a file called /etc/udev/rules.d/99-removable.rules After that file is present, then hot plug the device and see if it it's recognized. We will be publishing 6.10-beta soon, any further work on this will need to be accomplished in this release. Note: for anyone wondering: we simply added Linux kernel support for Thunderbird/USB4 per user request. We made no "promise" that we are committed to Thunderbird/USB
  3. We don't have any thunderbolt hardware. But as this suggests, from a terminal window type this: echo 'ACTION=="add", SUBSYSTEM=="thunderbolt", ATTR{authorized}=="0", ATTR{authorized}="1"' >/etc/udev/rules.d/99-removable.rules Then see if your device gets detected upon plug in. If not, post
  4. With 6.9 it is possible to have plugins install modules, no need to recompile the kernel or the root file system.
  5. Try using /sys/block/sdX/stat # for the entire device /sys/block/sdX/sdX1/stat # for partition 1 on the device The smartctl command definitely increments both read command count and sectors read count for the entire device. I cannot reproduce this issue, which is to say, works for me.
  6. I, umm..., ripped that code out, I think for 6.9.1? maybe 6.9.0.
  7. ...and be sure to disable at some point since that is going to write to the flash quite a bit.
  8. We're working on a design that lets driver plugins be automatically updated when we issue a release.
  9. Could be faulty hardware - can't rule that out.
  10. That message is output as a result of seeing I/O on partition 1 of the device. That is, code has detected I/O counters have incremented since the last time they were checked (polled every second). If there has been I/O to partition 1 then we assume the device must be spun-up. The 'read SMART' command is then issued to get the device temperature. Specifically it looks at /sys/block/sdb/sdb1/stat Then adds the 3rd and 7th values (sectors read and sectors written). I don't see this happening on my test servers, but I don't have any SAS devices.
  11. Ok we can check if self-test is in progress when we think it's time to spin-down and reset spin-down timer instead of spinning down. I'll add that to work queue for next release.
  12. This release contains bug fixes and minor improvements. To upgrade: First create a backup of your USB flash boot device: Main/Flash/Flash Backup If you are running any 6.4 or later release, click 'Check for Updates' on the Tools/Update OS page. If you are running a pre-6.4 release, click 'Check for Updates' on the Plugins page. If the above doesn't work, navigate to Plugins/Install Plugin, select/copy/paste this plugin URL and click Install: Bugs: If you discover a bu
  13. There's a longstanding kernel bug that flags usb flash media as "rotational". We'll try and a get a proper fix in.
  14. For upcoming 6.9.2 we updated the realtek r8125 to version 9.005.01 (from 9.003.05). Might fix this, but since Realtek, might not
