Hello everybody,

the first time I plugged my new Kingston Pendrive to my PII/350 (VL 5.9 StdGold) everything was OK !
After copying files from my PIII/500  (PCLinuxOS) to the pendrive  I got "Cannot obtain lock on /media/.hal-mtab" when trying to mount it again on the PII/350 ?

Thanks in advance for any help :-)

It sounds as though hal was enabled on your PCLOS box. Is hal enabled on your VL box? If not, enable it, reboot and see whether you are able to mount the usb stick.


VL 6.0 SOHO latest alpha on one box, VL 5.9 Lite on the other.
