I only can login with devfs=nomount, later on no CDR or USBs


RAM (Mo) : 512MB DDR-
CPU : Athlon XP-M - 2600+
Connection : ADSL-Ethernet
Hard disk : Toshi - 60Gb
CD / DVD ROM : Ricoh
Video card : Mobility Radeon 9600 - 64MB DDR-R
Sound card : AC from KT 400(A)
Network : Ethernet KT400(A)
SCSI : 1 - none
MDK10
XP-Home on dual boot

I only can login with devfs=nomount, so when i'm inside the thing i cannot access DVD+RW/CDRW combo drive, i cannot access the embutted card reader (smartmedia, sd, stick, etc.) which is USB plugged internal device.

And probably many more devices I probably cannot access but still haven't checked.

This is the ONLY way I can access to login on my laptop, is there a way i can solve this?

If I don't put devfs=nomount, the boot of MDK10 hangs on "Checking for new hardware"

thanks,
SK

That would possibly mean that you do not have devfsd installed which is OK but you will need to look around and install udev ~ my limited experience shows it is moving on whereas devfs has 'hit the wall'.

Try this link:

http://www.ibiblio.org/pub/Linux/doc...ory-HOWTO.html

and if you are using kernel-2.6.x then go straight to section 12.
