Question Sorry guys. Now how do I get Slackware to register USB flash drive?


OK, I can now read, write and format a floppy disk. Score! [It only takes three separate command line instruction to unmount the drive, format, remount specifying the filing system… but what the heck! I can do it :-) ]

Now I need USB flash drive to be accessible in Slackware. Otherwise I can’t get apps and multi-media data across (without great grief anyway) to test the functionality of KDE.
Gulp.

Gads this is hard work! There is no difference in the operation of Linux than UNIX at university in 1989! Now I see why I’m seeing all these adverts for work out east saying “Experience in Linux installation essential.” Linux requires a wad more work than Windows, MacOS, DOS or even CP/M! You really *can* make a living out of this!

Rolls up sleeves. OK, USB flash… where do I even begin?

Thanks guys for your patience.

If you use kde, the usb should mount automaticly.
However, look at dmesg, when you plugin the usb, and mount it
Code:
root@cannabis repo]# dmesg

Hi,

Most people will be using the 2.6 kernel. Since you insist on starting out with Slackware 10.1 & 2.4 kernel you should identify everything since the kernels differ.

That is why
I suggested that you look at 'How to Ask Questions the Smart Way' so in the future your queries provide information that will aid us in diagnosis of the problem.



You can reference the Slackbook on Slackware 10.1 CD3 (source) media.

If you do a
Search here on LQ you will find loads of information on Slackware 10.1. Keywords will get specific info.

It's been a while since my use of Slackware 10.1, I do have some controllers but those to are custom.

I know you insist on starting out so early but don't expect much help with problems like this. Device handling is different on 2.4 kernel and a 2.6.

You might want to consider using Slackware 12.2 as a starting point.
