USB Drive is not mountable

Briefly describe your issue below:
USB flash drive mount issue after kernel 5.3 upgrade

What version of Parrot are you running? (include version (e.g. 4.6), edition(e.g. Home//KDE/OVA,
etc.), and architecture (currently we only support amd64)
4.7 kernel 5.3
What method did you use to install Parrot? (Debian Standard / Debian GTK / parrot-experimental)
Debian GTK

Configured to multiboot with other systems? (yes / no)

If there are any error messages or relevant logs, post them below:
modprobe fuse not permitted

this start happing after kernel upgrade to 5.3. I boot up machine to old kernel 5.2 and I do not have any problem.

mount -v ‘/dev/sdc1’ ‘/mnt/usb-SanDisk_Cruzer_395401117B82830A-0:0-part1’

modprobe: ERROR: could not insert ‘fuse’: Operation not permitted
ntfs-3g-mount: fuse device is missing, try ‘modprobe fuse’ as root
but when I boot to kernel 5.2 do not have any problem with mounting. Drive auto mounted and icon on my desktop
fstab value

/etc/fstab: static file system information.

Use ‘blkid’ to print the universally unique identifier for a

device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices

that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).

Hi and welcome @akecheta

Thx for sharing in detail your problem with your usb device and the kernel issue on 5.30.
I’ve tested it on my system as well like u and I haven’t got any error on mounting my usb.

Anyhow we’re going to list it up in our bug list report and we’re checking it as soon as possible.

Have a great time here and feel free asking us any questions :slight_smile:



Thank you Andi_Artz
