I've got a digital camera that plugs in using a usb port. Then it's just a removable disk. Problem is that there's no block device for the four usb ports. Two on the front and the same on the back. How do I make a block device or something along the lines of getting the block devices to show up under /dev
try to look in /dev/scsi
you should see some dir with the name: host1 (the digit may be different)
(if you got the tree command type the following, else I recomend emerging it 'emerge tree')
you should see an output similar to:
where the path "/dev/scisi/host2/bus0/target0/lun0/part1" is the mountable device for the camers storage.
you might have run do 'modprobe usb-storage' (as root) first.
bash-2.05b# tree /dev/scsi/
0 directories, 0 files
ok, did you run "modprobe usb-storage" before typing tree?
Now I'm told to specify the filesystem
