CentOS 188.8.131.52: mounting /proc/bus/usb already mounted or busy
I'm trying to communicate with an external device connected through my usb. There is a script that came with the device that sets it up, only it fails before it can assign the device any IP settings.
The message returned that leads me to this: "Cannot determine address for "localhost" "
This tells me that the script cannot communicate properly with the device. So I must have a problem with the usb driver.
I know the usb cable needs FTDI chip drivers, I was told Fedora & CentOS already have them installed, but I downloaded them anyway. I followed the guide up to mounting the usbfs when I get the returned message "mount: none already mounted or /proc/bus/usb busy". None is what was used in the installation guide. I used the command
lsof | grep '/proc/bus/usb' | grep -v grep
to see any locks but it returned nothing. If the mounting isn't the problem then I need to contact the device manufacturer. I don't want to just yet because I feel there is a simple answer I'm unaware of.
