Before I go off and try this usbmgr thingie, I'd like to make sure it does not work as of right now. When I plug my Camera in to the USB port is there any way to just type mount (something) and check if it wlill mount. Or should the OS immediately recognize upon plugging in, in which case i know it doesn't work.
Chances are that the cam gets assigned /dev/sda...
Now I don't know how the thing is partitioned and
which filesystem it might use....
mount -t auto /dev/sda1 /cam -o user,users,umask=000
If that fails, try a different sdaX ...
If the line works, put an eqivalent entry into
/dev/sdaX /cam auto noauto,user,users,umask=000,rw 0 0
Thank you so much. I did everything you said to install Amaya and it went very well. However, when I go to run the program from the icon nothing happens. I even rebooted to see if it helped. So close! I went to /usr/local/bin and there was nothing there. What 's up?
Man, my computer is going suuuper slow, as a matter of fact I'm typing and the cursor has not yet caught up...lol. Is there any way to check the swap space and make sure it's active and all that, and make sure I'm using it, cause it doesn't seem so. Thanks.
So what about the amaya. i did everything you said but when i choose to run amaya it doesn't do anything. I WAS logged in as root when i did all that. As a matter of fact I haven't even set up any users yet, just root. And ideas? Maybe I should enter a different path in the command-entry field when i'm in the menu editor. This is proving to be frustrating. Help!
Thanks. I'll try it when I get home. BTW, I used "make install". Man, I hope this works. When I find out where it is , how will i know what path to enter in the command-entry field of menu editor? Thanks so much.

Scroll up mate :}
Both top and free will tell you whether you have swap space or not :}
I recommend familiarising yourself with the man
command, really ... if you did
man -k swap
you'd get a lot of info, if it's too much, narrow it down
with grep ... like in
man -k swap | grep 
(grep  will only return manpages that have to
do with executables)
1. When I type updatedb -c it goes to a new line, so I assume that's ok
2. When I try locate amaya|grep \/bin I get:
3. When I type make install|tee install.log I get:
"Nothing to be done for install" (note that I type this command in whatever directory I'm in whenever I open the console so I didn't go anywhere special to do it)
I also typed "top" and got a line that looked like this
"Swap 0K total 0K used"
I assume this means I didn't activate the swap space. Do you know how I can activate it. The partition exists for sure. Can I just put in the installation CD again or would that screw things up? Thanks.
