OK, So the kernel is able to see the root hub controllers. Now it gets a little more technical.
Now try the following:
mount -t usbdevfs /proc/bus/usb
ls -l /proc/bus/usb
also, i used to use the printer on windows 2000. worked great. the command mount -t usbdevfs /proc/bus/usb doesn't seem to work. seems like i should be passing it another path. it looks like this:
root@XYZ:/home/XYZ# mount -t usbdevfs /proc/bus/usb
Usage: mount -V : print version
mount -h : print this help
mount : list mounted filesystems
mount -l : idem, including volume labels
So far the informational part. Next the mounting.
The command is `mount [-t fstype] something somewhere'.
Details found in /etc/fstab may be omitted.
mount -a : mount all stuff from /etc/fstab
mount device : mount device at the known place
mount directory : mount known device here
mount -t type dev dir : ordinary mount command
Note that one does not really mount a device, one mounts
a filesystem (of the given type) found on the device.
One can also mount an already visible directory tree elsewhere:
mount --bind olddir newdir
or move a subtree:
mount --move olddir newdir
A device can be given by name, say /dev/hda1 or /dev/cdrom,
or by label, using -L label or by uuid, using -U uuid .
Other options: [-nfFrsvw] [-o options].
For many more details, say man 8 mount .
