iPod only mounts if it's there since boot!
Debian Sarge running 2.6.8-2-686, trying to mount my iPod via Firewire, but it's never detected properly.
I have all the modules installed and loaded that everyone says are necessary:
sbp2, scsi_mod, autofs4, eth1394, ohci1394
My fstab line says:
/dev/sdc2 /media/ipod vfat noauto,user,rw 0 0
(This is the correct device location, too.)
When I plug the iPod into its cradle, dmesg gives me:
Here is the funny part:
ieee1394: Node added: ID:BUS[0-01:1023] GUID[000a2700025b6621]
ieee1394: The root node is not cycle master capable; selecting a new root node and resetting...
ohci1394: fw-host0: SelfID received outside of bus reset sequence
ieee1394: Node changed: 0-01:1023 -> 0-00:1023
ieee1394: Node changed: 0-00:1023 -> 0-01:1023
it's fully recognized, and works whenever I power the computer up with the iPod already sitting in the cradle. As you can guess, I don't want to restart my computer anytime I want to add a song to the iPod. Would you?
Can anyone offer some help? It can clearly work, but not from the steps I see listed again and again throughout the various iPod mounting related posts already found in LQ.org. Whatever is picking it up at boot is not picking it up after boot; how do I get it to kick in properly?
