Hi all,

Just tried plugging in an exfat formated usb stick to my KDE install y/day. I found this fails with "kernel module not found", etc. message. Well obviously it's not going to use a kernel driver - it's going to have to mounted use FUSE (since there isn't an exfat kernel driver). Needless to say my user can mount fat16/32 formatted USB drives. I can manually mount the exfat device using the mount.exfat. I'm just unclear what I need to do to fix the KDE removeable drive dolphin click to mount approach??

I checked on my ARCH install (also using KDE 4.x) - by some voodoo magic (many moons ago) I've managed to set this up to support user mounting of exfat devices... Can't remember how though!!

Any help would be appreciated!! :D

Thanks
Bob

Installed exfat support:

emerge -s exfat
