    USB not being detected.


    I just installed Fedora 6 on a laptop and it is not detecting any USB device that I plug into it. Do I need to config the USB somehow? Any ideas?

    Fedora 6 is fairly old AFAIK, you will likely have better hardware detection and compatability with a newer version, I think 8 is the current

    Fedora 8 should definitely improve the chances of your hardware being recognized.

    If you must stick with FC6, maybe upgrading to the latest kernel and udev would fix things for you.
