ok.. couple days ago linux got mad at me and didnt want to work after i broke it... so i deleted it. but i forgave it and reinstalled today.. hoping to get help on how to tackle this problem:
on booting my system, at the console screen where it displays all the "[OK]"'s, etc... theres one line [well, more.. but this is the only important one] that doesnt get the OK. this is what it shows to me:
- starting hotplug subsystem
- modprobe: FATAL: error inserting hw_random (/lib/modules/188.8.131.52-3-386/kernel/drivers/char/hw_random.ko) no such device
i take it i need to download this file from somewhere, or something?
the reason im trying to fix this, is because i think if this gets fixed, i will be able to use my usb memory stick, which iv posted a thread about, week or so ago, which didnt get solved, but this is a new topic..
does this mean the system isnt recognizing/support usb? the odd thing is, if so, that i have a usb keyboard [logitech wireless mx duo] which operates without any config or problems.
am i right? is this relating to my usb problem? if not.. could i get pointers on how to get my memstick working?
thank you for any help or input
