[Solved] Impossible to mount a memory stick

Hi everybody,

I've installed Hydrogen several times and this is the first time this happens : after a successful install on an ACER, my usual memory sticks can't seem to mount. The name appears in Thunar (or Nautilus) but when I select it, I get a message

Error mounting /dev/sddb1 at... command-line `mount -t ... ' exited with status
 32 : unknown filesystem type 'vfat'.

I tried two sticks, both formatted in FAT32 and working well on other systems, both Linux (Hydrogen with same release of mount) and Windows.
Could a different hardware know fewer filesystem formats ?
I can push in more details if necessary.

Re: [Solved] Impossible to mount a memory stick

lsmod | grep -i vfat # not loaded? then load the kernel module:
sudo modprobe vfat

then try again.

Ah, if you upgraded the kernel, then reboot: https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugrepo … bug=808380.

Oh, yes. Rebooting does it. Thanks a lot, how sweet of you ! I'd've rebooted anyway but it's even better when you know what's going on...
