Unhappy Doesn't mount multiple USB drives (one "port")


I use a Palm LifeDrive - which has a Drive Mode program that turns its harddrive and SD card into USB mountable drives. In FC5 when I ran the Drive Mode program both drives showed up - but now in FC6 only the SD card shows up (on the desktop as an icon).

What am I missing?

I recall, quite some time ago, a similar problem getting all of the card slots working on a multi-card reader. I added something to some config file, and it worked - but I'll be swozzled if I can remember any more.

Thanks!

JP

1]Maybe multi-lun support in the kernel?

But FC6 is supposed to have this already enabled. Please see this post which I found by searching on LQ for "multi lun kernel":

Hope this helps, I'm not an FC* person!

2]"...I'll be swozzled if I can remember any more."

I try to remember to make a note when I have battled, and then finally fixed, something. Then I can search for it on my computer under /home/tg/linux/*

Yeah, I try to keep stuff in a directory too - but if I don't update it... :-(

Thanks - I'll keep looking for Multi-lun stuff
