    flash drive plugged in, errors in dmesg


    when i plug in my flash drive (well my dse one), dmesg gives me errors and it wont mount.

    i have mounted this flash drive before in slackware without any probs. My other flash drive's device is /dev/uba1 which i personally think is weird cause it used to be at (in previous installations) /dev/sda1.

    here is the output of dmesg | tail:
    Code:
    bash-3.00# dmesg | tail
    drivers/usb/input/hid-input.c: event field not found
    drivers/usb/input/hid-input.c: event field not found

    recompile your kernel and take out the low performance usb driver

    the module is called 'ub' and its taking over your flash stick, if you recompile or blacklist that module, it wont happen and you'll be back to /dev/sda

    if you knew why did you ask?

    maybe it will, no harm trying it, did it do this before on slackware or is it the first time you've tried it?

    yeah ive tried it on this system before, but not with the vanilla 2.6 kernel in the testing directory.

    the 2.4 kernel seams to work with it. (at least thats from memory).
