Can't detect usb devices??


I've installed the stable Debian sarge. And i got to admit i'm amazed by it. Anyways, I'm trying to detect two of my usb devices: samsung ML-1710 printer and HPScanjet5300c scanner. But hotplug hangs at usb and there is no entry at
/proc/bus/usb.

hotplug output:

$ /etc/init.d/hotplug start
Starting hotplug subsystem:
pci
amd64-agp: already loaded
pciehp: already loaded
shpchp: already loaded
r8169: already loaded
sata_promise: already loaded
ohci1394: already loaded
sata_via: already loaded
via82cxxx: already loaded

ehci-hcd: already loaded
via82cxxx_audio: already loaded
snd-via82xx: already loaded
ignoring pci display device 01:00.0
pci [success]
usb


Then i ran discover start but also hangs.

I'm using kernel 2.6.8-2-386. Can anyone suggest what to be done? Thanks.

Try running CUPS to setup your printers.

For the HP you can install the HP drivers. Either from here HP Linux Inkjet Driver Project or by looking through Synaptic.


Have you tried looking here LinuxPrinting.org?

I fixed the problem. I downgraded from kernel 2.6 to 2.4 now everything's fine.
