USB probs with 2.4.19


Well I'm trying to compile the 2.4.19 kernel from kernel.org and everything works great except my USB . The only thing I need usb support is for my alcatel speedtouch modem really (I hate that thing btw). So I did add support for usb devices and usb modems in the kernel, but when I try to run the modem (with modem_run -f /usr/local/speedtouch/mgmt.o -m) I get this error: "/proc/bus/usb no such file or directory. I'm sorry I didn't find your ADSL modem."
Can someone help me out here please?

From that error message, I would think you might have missed compiling proc into your kernel. I believe this is in your filesystem portion of the kernel config. If you did, try doing it the other way. Meaning if you compiled it module, change it to built in, and vice versa.

Cool

update: I enabled everything that has to do with usb and /proc messaging in the kernel, but I still get that same error. Are there other steps I have to after booting the kernel to get usb support?

Not that I know off. The usb-agent should recognize any connected devices, else it'll fire off an error message.
Could you grep your boot messages for usb and post 'em here?
Have you also looked at theUSB Guide for clues?
