Unhappy missing usb_storage, sd_mod


I've installed MEPIS to hard disk and have done a few apt-get update / apt-get upgrade thereafter. Kernel is 2.6.10.

When I plug in a USB memory stick, /var/log/messages shows that the kernel recognizes the SCSI device but scsi.agent can't fload the module sd_mod.

kernel: Vendor: Lexar Model: JUMPDRIVE SPORT ...
kernel: Type: Direct-Access ..
kernel: SCSI device sda: 24928 512-byte hdwr sectors (127 MB)
kernel: sda: assuming Write Enabled
kernel: sda: sda1
kernel: Attached scsi removable disk sda at scsi1, channel 0, id 0, lun 0
scsi.agent: sd_mod: can't be loaded (for disk)

Where can i get sd_mod? I've searched in Synaptic for it but can't find it.

Do I need usb_storage as well? where can I get that?

TIA,
- TSloth

You'll have to compile it as a module in your kernel.

cd /usr/src/linux-{your kernel version}
make menuconfig
Scroll to Device Drivers
Scroll to SCSI
select SCSI Disk as a module
exit the screen a couple times and save the changes
make modules
make modules_install
modprobe sd_mod



That should do it

vi /boot/grub/menu.lst
append doscsi in the kernel line for both kernels then reboot
kernel (hd0,0) blah blah blah vga=788 doscsi
now turn on your ext firewire drive and fdisk -l will show it.

alright forgot the last line I wrote....anyway 6 months ago or so I went crazy loading sd_mod and other modules. Appending the doscsi to the kernel like it says in the gentoo installation guide did the trick.
