    hotplug, usb storage problem


    Hello! I recently upgraded my kernel from 2.4.6 to 2.6.13, using the pre-compiled kernel from the slackware 10.2 cd's.
    Everything went fine, except that my udev or hotplug is still not working. I have read every post for weeks now, and I am still not any smarter. I can't figure out why it doesn't work. Most instructions I find are "Gentoo" specific, I doubt I have to do things like "emerge baselayout" etc..?
    I can see udevd running in the kde system guard, but when turning on a usb harddrive no "usb-storage" comes up in there.

    The "/var/log/hotplug" directory is not present
    /proc/sys/kernel/hotplug is also not present as well as
    /sbin/hotplug

    I am running:
    hotplug-2004_09_23-noarch-5
    udev-064-i486-2

    Please advise!
    thank you!

    Hi itzig,

    It almost seems like the support was removed (to update with the newer kernel) but not re-installed.

    Try these commands (as root) in a terminal and see if you have any USB support:

    lsmod | more
    lsusb
    /sbin/lsusb -v | grep bcdUSB | awk '{print $2}'

    what does dmesg tell you when you plug in a USB device?

    Code:
    dmesg
    All right, brain. You don't like me and I don't like you, but let's just do this and I can get back to killing you with beer. All New Users Read This!!! If you have a grub problem please look at GRUB MANUAL

    Thanks, I tried
    lsusb and
    root@wildblue:~# /sbin/lsusb -v | grep bcdUSB | awk '{print $2}'
    root@wildblue:~#

    ...which does nothing?

    ~$ lsmod | more
