microSD card not reading

Post by JeepNut » 2019/09/30 01:28:34

128Gb and is recognized by the system but will not mount.
Did some reading of posts related back 5 years and found a recommendation that seems sound.
Disk /dev/sdg: 128.0 GB, 128042663936 bytes, 250083328 sectors
Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disk label type: dos
Disk identifier: 0x00000000

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sdg1 32768 250083327 125025280 7 HPFS/NTFS/exFAT
Given that, I'm thinking this advice applies
What file system is used on the SD card? If it's NTFS or EXFAT, you need to install the appropriate CentOS package first.
But.... what is the "appropriate" one of those?
I've not really figured out how to "see" what is available in the repos.
YaST was superb for this in openSuSE, wondering if there is an equivalent for CentOS?
I have installed the yumExtender GUI which is nice, but I don't see that it shows us a package list for each repo we'd want to query.
I did do this:

Code: Select all

yum list | grep @nux-dextop
and got back a nice list, though nothing showed up regarding NTFS or EXFAT that I could tell.
Also did this:

Code: Select all

yum list | grep @nux-ref
and got back a null return which I thought odd. Does it really mean there is nothing in that repo?
Do I need to install something to support SDXC chips as well?
Thanks!

I guess you need the ntfs-3g package from the epel repo.

Yes indeed. Hard to believe I'm just coming back round to this but that worked.
Thanks!
