Slackware to vortex86
I was installing slackware on vortex86 architecture (Vortex86), and customise the 2.4.31 kernel module, but i have one problem. I can't get USB Storage (Flash Disk) work with my kernel.
Please help me!!!
Thanks for respons
this my config file http://henash.100webspace.net/config-kernel
please remove banner script from 100web space.
the 2.4 kernels have problems with some USB. and sice you are customising your kernel why dont you install 2.6 kernel?
what happen when you connect your flash disk ?
connect it and post the output of
tail -s 3 -f /var/log/messages
also don't forget to enable hotplug with your kernel , chmod +x /etc/rc.d/rc.hotplug.
I am sorry, but i can't get /etc/rc.hotplug and /etc/hotplug directory in my system. Is save if i copy from other slackware system (Slackware 11), because i don't know version of my slackware system.
I was copy all needed file by /etc/rc.d/rc.hotplug script from Slackware 11, and i was successfull start the script. Now i can get my USB Flash Disk, but other problem occur, while i start rc.hotplug script i can't get usb mouse work.
So i am very confuse while USB Flash get work, USB mouse can't work. But while USB mouse get work, USB Flash can't work.
It's not related, probably once you activate the rc.hotplug the name of the mouse device changes.
Do you have /dev/input/mice ?
and have a look to your /etc/X11/xorg.conf ,
under the input section.
Option "Protocol" "Auto" # Auto detect
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Ok now i can get my USB mouse work. but my system just running rdesktop with svgalib, so i don't have any X11 file.
My be my system hardware unstable, because the time usb flash disk can detect, but another time can't detect.
but some times i can detect my usb flash disk as sda, but can't be mounted and showing message "mount: special device /dev/sda1 does not exists".
Did you install the x/xap from the slackware DVD ?
you can also try the new Slackware 12.0 release.
No i not need any X application, because my system just thin-client with 64Mb of CF disk. Just to remote Windows XP system.
Thanks for your information
