Hello to everyone there!
So, here is my problem. I did install "automount".
It works with USB and CD/DVD devices. But here is the thing: I can't move archives into the USB device, I can only copy them from the USB to the machine; also I can't burn ISO images in a CD or DVD (I proved with...

# umount -f mymountpoint

I’m testing an external USB drive as a one-off backup. I can send / recv without any problem. However, as soon as I reattach the USB drive again, the datasets are mounted on the same paths. Not a fun place to be in.
I could set the canmount property after the receive but I’m wondering...

I have a problem regarding USB and SD card reader :
USB : automount works very well but I must be root to write or clear something, else I can just read.
SDCARD : sometimes automount works, and sometimes not. When It works, it is just readable and I must be root to write or erase...
Good afternoon all,
I've noticed that there is a BIOS update for my Lenovo T440. The download is an ISO file which strikes me as a little odd since the laptop doesn't have an optical drive...

The copy process took me 47 minutes and I decided to test the write speed of Debian...
