I'm trying to auto mount external hard drives to raspberry pi B+ (raspbian stretch lite image) using usbmount (link). But auto mount fails with the below error saying the device is not MTP. Unlike this suggestion I am looking for a way to enable usbmount to mount any usb hdd without specifying device id. How can I do this?

$ sudo systemctl status systemd-udevd

  • please edit your post so that you are asking a question .... right now you are only describing what you are doing ...... also, you may find an answer on a linux website, since the failure is not RPi related – jsotola Aug 24 '18 at 18:07
  • without specifying device id .... what happens if you do not specify the ID? – jsotola Aug 24 '18 at 18:13
