I'm having a hard time figuring out USB device support. I have a new digital camera, and I'm trying to get it working under linux....no luck so far.
I've tried modprobe usb-uhci, and modprobe usbstorage, both of which seem to work (no errors when I read the output of dmesg). At this point, I'm stuck. I tried using gphoto2 and it's not recognizing anything. I tried following instruction and mounting it as a drive, no luck.
Anyone out there got this working? A little help would be appreciated.
If you're on Slack 8.1, get and install USB Manager
... on Slack 9, go and get
(If you want to recompile your kernel with hotplug support
in Slack 8.1 you can use Murasaki there, too ;})
The problem is that you need to get SCSI sussed, too,
and then find as which device the cam is actually
recognised ... either of the tools above do a pretty good
job at that (if the author heard of your cam before, that is ;})
