Samsung Galaxy Note II


This is so terribly annoying. I've had it with Slackware. I've been a loyal user of Slackware for over 10 years, but now I've soon had more than enough.

Take a look at this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7waXXfyq4NI

The Galaxy Note II seems to work in USB mass storage mode out of the box on Ubuntu. Why doesn't this work in Slackware?

Kernel ring buffer (dmesg) shows the following when the device is connected via USB:

Code:
hub 1-5:1.0: state 7 ports 4 chg 0000 evt 0008
hub 1-5:1.0: port 3, status 0100, change 0001, 12 Mb/s

usb 1-5.3: adding 1-5.3:1.1 (config #1, interface 1)
usb 1-5.3: adding 1-5.3:1.2 (config #1, interface 2)
usb 1-5.3: adding 1-5.3:1.3 (config #1, interface 3)
lsusb shows me:

Code:
Bus 001 Device 018: ID 04e8:6860 Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd
However lsscsi gives me nothing I can mount.

What do I need to do to be able to mount this device?

I've tried to set (in Android) the device into MTP mode and PTP mode, PTP would require ptpcam or something equivalent and ptpcam --list-devices gives me nothing, but I want USB, not PTP.

if it's like the S3, and I'd certainly expect it to be, it will NOT function as a mass storage device. Samsung deliberately removed that config in favour of MTP. you should be able to install libmtp under slack to get it going.

Thanks for the tip.

I've now tried with MTP, I already had version 1.1.1 installed, so I tried that first, with the following results:

Code:
# mtp-detect 
libmtp version: 1.1.1

Listing raw device(s)
Device 0 (VID=04e8 and PID=6860) is a Samsung GT-P7510/Galaxy Tab 10.1/S2.
   Found 1 device(s):
   Samsung: GT-P7510/Galaxy Tab 10.1/S2 (04e8:6860) @ bus 1, dev 20
Attempting to connect device(s)
PTP_ERROR_IO: failed to open session, trying again after resetting USB interface
LIBMTP libusb: Attempt to reset device
LIBMTP PANIC: failed to open session on second attempt
Unable to open raw device 0
OK.
I then proceeded to install version 1.1.5, which as of this date appears to be the latest version. With 1.1.5 I got the following results:

Code:
# mtp-detect 
Error: Unable to open ~/.mtpz-data for reading.
libmtp version: 1.1.5

Listing raw device(s)
Device 0 (VID=04e8 and PID=6860) is a Samsung Galaxy models (MTP).
   Found 1 device(s):
   Samsung: Galaxy models (MTP) (04e8:6860) @ bus 1, dev 22
Attempting to connect device(s)
PTP_ERROR_IO: failed to open session, trying again after resetting USB interface
LIBMTP libusb: Attempt to reset device
LIBMTP PANIC: failed to open session on second attempt
Unable to open raw device 0
OK.
I also tried "mtp-connect" which seems to detect the device correctly, but still fails to connect. The device works perfectly fine in Windows, I can copy data to it with no issues.
