USB mounting problem


Hey guys,

Just trying to get my server up and running and want to use my USB Netgear WG111 to connect to the net instead of blue string at the moment.

The installation is with Ubuntu 5.02 (I know it is old).

Now, I have done this on my main rig about 5-6 months ago with Ubuntu (actually the same cd).

I thought it was wierd that it didn't work as I followed my documentation perfectly (I was using NDISWrapper to use the Windows driver, and it does work on my main rig), so I tried my usb stick. Still doesn't work. So guys, I am asking why it doesn't work?

I have done a dmesg and it said (under the usb parts):

USB 1.1: khubd timedout on ep0in

and

USB 1.1: khubd timedout on ep0out

I have no idea what this means, as all usb devices I have used have automounted no problems.

Ok, the server is a Dual P3, not sure the motherboard, 80gig PATA Seatgate Barra, 512MB SDRAM. Has hotplug installed on there. I have tried:

mount -t usbfs /dev/sda1 /mnt/usb
mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /mnt/usb

I have changed the numbers and letters on the command, and it doesn't work.

I have had the devices connected when I boot the machine.

I have also ls /dev and it doesn't have any sda devices in there.

I would copy the entire dmesg but:

a) No usb stick workies
b) No burner
c) Can't run cable to there at the moment

Any other info (that I could type) that you need, just ask.

Cheers,

Are, is your usb device(s) registered in your fstab file? I have not used Ubuntu, but if your older version is anything like Red Hat - through version 8 or so, recognition of USB and SCSI devices was anything but stellar. You may have to manually enter your USB device into the fstab file, making sure your mount point exists under /mnt/...

It may be time for you to migrate...

Hmmmm, but I don't understand why it worked with my main rig. It was the same cd. Also, it is Ubuntu 5.02, it isn't "that" old.

If it worked in your "old rig", then there is possibly a hardware problem. What is different between the old and new rigs? Could be a irq conflict. Check your pci harware by typing as root "lspci|less". "lspci --help" will give options. Maybe a hardware guru will help you determine what the problem is.
