problems with USB key
I have little problem with Slackware 10. Running 2.6.9 kernel on laptop. I can't see any usb drives such as sda1 (on SuSe, Mandrake there weren't any problems). I've been trying to configure kernel, but all my efforts seems hopeless. What should I do (check) to make my usb drive work :?:
is it detected
does any other Usb device work
did you try to mount the device
Please post what you've try so far, also post the answer to the question,...
No it is not detected.
I've been trying to install different drivers (sorted by models).
and why should I mount, if I can't see any usb drives?!..
that's the problem (on SuSE I had no complaint). :(
if you run
does it ouput anything in the like of sd*?
usbcore: registered new driver usbfs
usbcore: registered new driver hub
USB Universal Host Controller Interface driver 2.2
usbcore: registered new driver usblp
strange isn't it? :? Nothing with sd*
well since you do have the usb driver laoded, the kernel is probly out of question...
I have to go... but here's a link I just got accross, to support your problem :), and it might get you right on track,...
Hope it helps
thanks for the stuff, I'll keep working on it.
At last, it is working. Problems with hotplug 8) and kernel configuration (USB Mass Storage Support).
Can you post the exact thing you've done please. Since other might have the same issue, it would be nice to have a written solution
Thanks in advance :)
First, compiling the kernel:
Find "Device drivers" > "USB Support".
<*> Support for Host-side USB[*] USB verbose debug messages
<*> EHCI HCD (USB 2.0) support
<*> UHCI HCD (most Intel and VIA) support
<*> USB Mass Storage support[*] USB Mass Storage verbose debug
then save .config and:
make && make modules_install
If hotplug isn't enabled, enable it:
"Setup">tick "hotplug">"OK" & "Yes"
Exit & reboot
Now You should see sda1 in /dev :)
