udev: recognize USB2, but not firefire.


Hya,


Problem is:
An external disk can be recognised by udev when connected through USB2, but not when connected through firewire.

In both cases, kernel itself recongises the drive and attaches it to /dev/sda1, (and "mount -t vfat ..." works even when connected by firefire.)

I guess this is udev rule related. But so far, I have not found any clue. I think that any drive attached to /dev/sd[a-z][1-9] should be recognised by udev.....

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Happy Penguins!

No firewire devices here but I do have a sdcard reader on my notebook that uses the mmc_block modules and then interfaces through generic scsi interface. It also does not automount this type of device. I just guess firewire is in the same case. Ended up writing a udev rules to mount it automatically but does not show prompts or anything like that. Just pop in the card and it mounts.

Hya,

I was wrong.

udev recognises firewire drive also. (according to udevmonitor) Xfce cannot process as a removable drive.

cheers.

Happy Penguins!
