Hmh ... based on information you've supplied I'd say something is wrong.
0. What do you have in mind saying does not recognize USB drives, no device nodes created in /dev? Is that what you mean? What is lsmod output?
1. Open a terminal , su to root and run tail -f /var/log/messages, then connect the drive. What the system tells you?
Thanks for the reply, Im really appreciate your help!
When I say NOT REGCONIZED I mean the usb flash drive seems to be like unplugged, I mean there is not sign of USB geting even power.
this is a brand new motherboard,I have tried usb devices using other OS, and all of them work fine, now I installed DSL linux and when I plug a USB flash drive, nothig happen, the USB KEy led does not turn on, and when I run LSUSB there is no device listed all of the entries shows 00000:00000
it is not a problem mounting the drive I think, it should be something before that
I apologyze I din not reply before,
My system is working now
what I needed to chage was some option on GRUB menu before booting
noapic nolapic pci=coacpi
It really fix the problem, I dont know how it really works, but when I changed those settings the lsusb command started shwoing my usb devices,
after that I just used MOUNT command and I use a script to obtain an ¨automounting¨ feature for my propuses it worked
I hope this info could be helpful for someone else
thanks for all uour help
