Previously, I made that CentOS 8 is not auto mounting my APFS partition

I want to discover the partition info detecting functionality, in this operative system (I made a new CentOS installation) I have not installed ExFAT, neither NTFS nor APFS File Systems.

The Linux kernel through daemons has managed to detect relevant information from ExFAT and NTFS without having a driver installed for it, but it has not detected the same information for APFS.

I was reading.

and read Some About of:

I have a USB External SSD with 4 disk partitions. The file system of partitions are

  • APFS
  • ExFAT
  • ext4
  • NTFS

I'm using kernel version

$ uname -r
4.18.0-193.6.3.el8_2.x86_64 

I executed commands before and after my SSD.

BEFORE plug the USB External SSD

ls -alR /dev/ | grep -E "/dev/block:|sda|/by-|/dev/:"

Lacking adaptation (development) of Udev in order to detect the new type of APFS file system ? , I think that yes.

How likely would AFPS partition detection be included in Kernel version 5.8?

I would like to get my hands on the code where should I start? apart from blog1 blog2 pdf1.

How blkid is interacting with these (services) daemons?

I was trying to extract metainfo from APFS

Basically all userspace tools use (lib)blkid (from util-linux) to detect filesystems on block devices. UDisks uses data from UDev and UDev runs blkid in its rules.

Kernel has nothing to do with this, you don't need kernel module to detect filesystem signature (blkid reads data directly from the disk/block device and compares signatures (binary data) against its internal database). Kernel module (or fuse module) is needed only for actually mounting the device.

Support for APFS was added in util-linux 2.33 and CentOS 8 has only 2.32 so without manually upgrading util-linux UDisks can't automount your APFS drive.
