USB flash on boot


Hi,

I'm trying to find out how to get pendrive seen on boot

atm kernel does not set up /dev node so I'm assuming I need to change something in my config

What do I need to change in kernel to get /sda to appear ?

Thanks in Advance

Dave T.

From memory, you need:

hotplug support, SCSI support, and USB filesystem support

You also need to have the hotplug and coldplug packages installed.

Hi,

Thanks for your reply ..

I have modules (USB) loading after kernel has booted, no /dev/sdaX created ..

/sys is scanned again but its not picking up device ...

So I'm assuming .. the kernel is not configured correctly (not sure)

(will check hotplug etc...)
