On my system, hot swapping of my SATA dock has been working for years using Windows and several Ubuntu derivative distros. BUT, not on EOS.
- I installed EOS with KDE and printer support, and it is up-to-date.
- The bios has “AHCI Mode” enabled and the SATA port has “Hot Plug” enabled.

- When I have a disk plugged in on boot, it is seen; but if I hot plug a disk, it does not.
- As a workaround, if I run
echo '0 0 0' > /sys/class/scsi_host/host5/scan, then the disk is immediately recognized.
I’m hoping for a permanent, automatic solution. I’ve googled every imagined search terms, check the Arch AHCI page, etc., and other than the workaround, nothing has helped. Are there more packages to install or services to enable to get hot swap working on EOS?
