    Can't open /proc/bus/usb/devices


    Hi there

    This is related to a question I had on setting up my modem. I think I may have the wrong firmware but when I try

    Code:
    grep -B 1 "THOMSON
    ALCATEL" /proc/bus/usb/devices
    I get no such file or directory.

    If I do ls /proc/bus I can see usb. I just can't open it - cd /proc/bus/usb gives me no such file or directory too.

    Does anyone know why this would be?

    (lsusb lists all my usb devices fine)

    Xenny

    p.s. forgot to mention sorry I'm in SUSE 10.1

    It's okay - I found out how to fix it eventually.

    In etc/fstab I changed

    usbfs /proc/bus/usbfs noauto 00

    to

    usbfs /proc/bus/usbfs auto 00

    Now I can get at devices, and my modem is revision 4, but I still can't get the ******* thing working. Anyone?
