digital camera - USB access of SD card???
this is the closest I found ... http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ght=usbstorage
The problem appears to be the set up of sub-storage module ...
lsusb finds my camera (a Minolta dimage Z1 (c.£250 from ebuyer))
... can't find where the device is though??
if it uses an sd card, why not use an sd card reader, or 6 in one reader, so u can use the camera's card as a memory stick also?
you can enter /usr/src/linux
choose usb storage as a module
and then make modules
make modules_install, without ever compiling the kernel
and it should work?
you may want to check some docs in /usr/src/linux/Documentation to be sure it won't erase your current modules
The bare.i kernel has support for loading the module. I agree that if you use a card reader you will find it easy. It will show up as a partition in the boot messages, usually /dev/sda1 or just /dev/sda.
I'm not sure how the camera would show, though.
You'll need usb-storage, ehci, uhci and ohci modules to load. But if you boot with the card inserted in a card reader this will happen automatically.
Also, the zipslack kernel has compiled-in (not module) support for these devices as well as zip drives.
So then it's just
mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /mnt/usb
OK, thanks guys ... will have to look up the module compilation process (unless someone else chips in). Note that I have got the drive mounted via Mandrake at /dev/sda1 .
The modules you need should already be installed. usb-core, ehci uhci, etc. If you compile a kernel you'll need SCSI support and initial USB file system support. But the modules are easier. Take a look at the RUNT linux bootdisk. just download it and look at the modules it loads
