    Enable USB


    Hi All,

    How to enable a USB in Redhat9 system. I am having a root password for the OS, but i guess it is disabled through BIOS. Is there any configuration and i can reset and start using USB.

    Thanks in advance.

    Linux can't change the BIOS. You'll have to reset and change the BIOS setting first.

    All modern Linuxes I used (even Gentoo) have this Enabled by default.
    But lsmod | grep usb should return some modules.

    Hope that helps.

    Cheers,
    Robin

    Is there any reason for using RedHat 9? Its an obsolete distro and RedHat Team doesn't support it. You should consider CentOS or Fedora. Both are RedHat based and free to download/install.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
