So I want to use my usb on Garuda Linux, I plugged it in and noticed it isn't being detected by the system. When I input
sudo blkid -o list
The only devices detected are /dev/nvme0n1p1, and /dev/nvme0n1p2
which are partitions of my ssd I believe. I also tried packages suggested by other threads like the usb 3.0 firmware from AUR.
I know for a fact the usb works, when I plug it into a mac or windows computer it functions just fine
I guess you came accross also this one, but just in case...:
yes that was the one, I installed it but it did not fix anything
Try to check usb port 's version , sometimes usb 3.1 is not backward compatible .
Also try to check the bios if the pendrive works really it will show for your system.
3rd- try to format the pendrive with other pc.
Yeah its a 2.0 it would work, the bios picked it up too. I reinstalled the xhci_pci module, for some reason it didnt work the first time and it worked.
If you update the kernel then new devices (like USB flash drives) won't be detected until after you reboot.
If its a laptop try plugging in your usb while having your charger disconnected, sometimes its a broken charger i had the same issue
You never provided your system specs.
As text post:
If this is an older Gigabyte mobo this may be a bios issue that requires adding the
iommu=soft grub kernel boot parameter for your USB ports to work.
However, without your system specs it's impossible to say.
You should never open a technical help request without providing your system specs in full via an inxi output.
