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)
sr1 (unknown device)
sg1 (unknown device)
but no results.
Anyone out ther know what im doing wrong
