Today I plugged in a USB flash drive (after updating 40 or so packages in Gentoo, including HAL) and received this error in a popup:
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda, missing
codepage or other error In some cases useful info is found in syslog -
try dmesg | tail or so
Looking at dmesg …
I had been having a strange problem with Samba, where creating shares through KDE created shares that are visible through SMB or Windows clients, yet opening them only showed an error that “The file or folder does not exist”.
