Hello everyone, i installed Manjaro recently and i’m getting this error while trying to mount an external HDD using exfat.
What is the error? Is exfat-utils installed?
“Filesystem exfat not configured in kernel”
Sorry didn’t read the last part before replying Exfatprogs is, Exfat-utils isn’t.
Didn’t try with Exfat-utils since after researching for a bit i found that its supposedly an updated version
check on util-linux as well
i will as soon as i get home , thx for the suggestion!
exfat-utils (1.40)was last updated two weeks ago 3/3/2023 on Unstable and is also now in Testing branch
I was guiding myself using this post: Exfat-utils or exfatprogs?. Since i couldn’t find much over the internet i thought exfat-utils wasn’t the way to go, i’ll check It out first before util-linux. Thanks for the explanation.
util-linux is required by important system app, systemd, mkinitcpio etc so never mind on that.
So i should only try out swapping Exfatprogs for Exfat-utils?
I only have
exfat-utils installed on my system. It works.
exfatprogs provides exfat-utils, but as @omano said he has exfat-utils and it works, Same here, it works (xfce).
This might be an obvious question.
But what kernel are running and have you tried another kernel?
It would be better to use
The main reason for me to use exfatprogs as it is needed for gparted and because of this it was changed in the root packages some time ago.
grep exfat /rootfs-pkgs.txt and it was exfat-utils at the time I installed this system.
But future Manjaro ISO appear to have exfatprogs. Commit April 2022.
Moderator edit: Corrected commit link
I’ve just checked and exfatprogs conflicts with exfat-utils, but I wonder if it was offered as an update?
grep exfat /rootfs-pkgs.txt exfat-utils 1.3.0-2
pamac list -i | grep exfat exfatprogs 1.2.0-1 community 180,9 kB
pamac gui shows exfatprogs
Never mind, brainfart
exfatprogs provides and conflicts with
exfat-utils by design.
The only way that would happen is if
exfat-utils, but it currently does not.
Yes I thought that as people still have exfat-utils but if the decision was taken to change it in rootfs should it not have been sent out as an update?
It was done because the optional dependency of
gparted changed from
exfatprogs. We include
gparted on the live ISOs.
