mandrake linux 10.0 kernel 2.6.3 usb scanner, webcam not working

Hi all,
I've just moved to Mandrake Linux 10.0 Community Edition.
It's running kernel 2.6.3-2mdk

My Genius CoorPage Vivid 3XE USB Scanner worked very well under Mandrake Linux 9.2 (kernel 2.4.x).
Now i found that scanner module were removed from kernel.
In other hand nothing conneted to the usb bus is detected, my creative ct6840 web cam, my treo 180-palm, my scanner.
dmesg shows nothing when something is plugged to the usb port.

I've been told i shoulm move from "scanner module" to libusb.
What i found about libusb are these RPMs

how do i configure libusb ?.

[root@spock root]# libusb-config
Usage: libusb-config [OPTIONS] [LIBRARIES]

# libusb-config this only command i found.

any help ?

First a wireless card, then a camera, now a scanner...

/me feels that mandrake majorly f*cked up something in this distro cause people keep posting different hardware that mysteriously stopped working

I had the same issues. In 9.2 everything I plugged into the uSb ports worked automatically. In 10 nothing worked. Login to the shell as supersuser and type in usermount that should get them to work.

good luck
