problems plugging in usb devices (pnp?)


Hi,

I have got Debian lenny and a new laptop (hp tx 1000). Unfortunately it isn't one of the most linux friendly laptops. With the help of google and ubuntu forums I managed to get sound up and running and still working on wireless.
My problem I believe is related to Plug and Play thingy - When I plug in my usb mouse, or pendrive - completely nothing happens, nothing is registered by dmesg. However when I reboot the box with the device plugged in it is perfectly recognised and usable.

my kernel 2.6.23.9

any hints? thanks

edit: btw my kernel options are as follows:
/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.23.9-custom root=/dev/sda7 ro noapic nolapic acpi=off

Need more info...please

1. dmesg is the wrong log to be checking - it is a boot log. Check /var/log/messages or /var/log/kern.log instead.

2. What would you want it to do when you plug in your flash drive? There are many scenarios (just mount it silently, open a GUI window, etc.). We are not mind readers.

3. If you want your Desktop Environment (DE) to handle it, it would be helpful if you mention which DE you use.

4. Post your /etc/fstab

The entry related to my usb pen drive is most probably the one above saying something about disconnecting. My usb pendrive/mp3player has a display which when I plug it in say 'connecting' and after 1 second 'disconnecting'

As to my DE, it is Gnome and I'm surprised you couldn't read my mind about the preferred behaviour of my flash drive I thought it was obvious (LOL) that I'd rather it didn't open a gui window automatically, the pen drive icon on the desktop would be enough.

This is the culprit. The dbus and hal daemons will not run properly without acpi.
