usb still not functioning


Hi

ok i dont know if ive left out anything in the kernel or not, but when i attatch my camera to a usb port nothing shows up under /proc/usb.
Yet if i go into /proc/scsi under usb-storage the device is there and connected.

After noting this, lsmod returns the output that usb-storage 0 (unused)
the same goes for uhci, ehci, ohci (all unused) all of these are modules that i can load and unload sucessfully.

cat /proc/devices lists 1 device as usb there are also other devices attatched.

lspci gives a result of the usb being connected and the driver usb-storage being used.

cat /proc/scsi/scsi tells me that there are 2 devices connected 1 being my cd rom, the other being my camera the only difference are the devices SCSI0 and SCSI1 using 0 as lun (forget the others but they are all zeros)

if i attatch and remove the camera and do dmesg before and after there is definite indication that a usb device is being connected and dissconected.

forcing a mount on /proc/scsi/usb-storage i land up with what should be in /proc/usb example 001/ 002/ 003/ devices drivers. Yet i cannot proceed to mount any further ( i just land up with the afore-mentioned directory structure)

/proc/filesystems tell me that the usb* are unused

if i look into my etc/modules.conf file it is empty (should this be ??)
i did a make modules_install when I recompiling the kernel although i did not leave to much to be installed as modules (mostly compiled into kernel)

Really im lost here, i dont care so much as to how i get the info off of the camera but i just need to see it first.

I tried various mount commands using devices

sda1 (unknown device)

sr0 (cdrom)

sr1 (unknown device)

sg0 (cdrom)

sg1 (unknown device)

but no results.

Anyone out ther know what im doing wrong

Thanx

First off what camera is it? I had a Sony DSC-P8 that I used to have working fine as a mass storage device, and yes they use SCSI for the filesystem I guess, if anyone knows why that'd be cool to know. Anyways I recompiled my kernel and it won't work like that anymore, so I've been using Gphoto i think it is, to get my pics off my camera. They have pretty good support and a GUI to work with to preview pics. Try that and see what comes of it.

As I said before try that gphoto I think it's called. Do a search on freshmeat if thats not it. It works like a charm, though you have to be root.

over at TLDP.org site there is an excellent guide found here it didn't help me with my problem though.

I'll try that gphoto later on today I think.

okay i had a good crack at getting my camera working but alas no such luck.

I followed what you did synapse and i sorta end up with the same results. For example
Code:
bash-2.05b# cat /proc/scsi/scsi
Attached devices:
Host: scsi0 Channel: 00 Id: 00 Lun: 00
  Vendor: PIONEER  Model: DVD-RW  DVR-106D Rev: 1.07
  Type:   CD-ROM                           ANSI SCSI revision: 02
Host: scsi1 Channel: 00 Id: 00 Lun: 00
  Vendor: Sony     Model: Sony DSC         Rev: 4.50
  Type:   Direct-Access                    ANSI SCSI revision: 02
Last night I installed dropline gnome and it seems that gphoto2 is bundled with the install with gtkam 0.1.11 as the front end. But gphoto2 is not working at all and when I try to follow the guide here I simply get the ol "command not found" errors. So i'll try and remove gphoto2 and install it myself.

A really horrible thing i discovered though is that in the gtkam frontend with the camera driver listing, there is no DSC-P8 camera avalable, it appears that only the current releases of the DSC cameras are in the list.

I have a few more ideas on giving things a go so i'll report back soon.

Yes as I remember DSC-P8 is NOT on the list but I found one that works. When i get back from work tonight I'll hook up my camera to my laptop and find out which, cause right now I don't have my camera with me.

Hi

Once again, im just posting to say that the problem is now fixed ,
Somehow when i compiled the new kernel i left out something that was important , i still dunno what, but it had to do with the scsi items somewhere, anyway i started with a standatd kernel and redid everything, leaving the options i knew nothing about alone.

Well the kernel is a little bigger than it should be but i will sort that out once i know a little more.

Thanx for the help though
cheers
