Where are USBs listed in /dev


Hi. I am using Breezy.

I have tried to check in /dev but I don't see any of my 4 USBs listed. How can I get them?

Secondly, when I check in System/Administration/Device Manager, I see my USB modem listed. Yet when I go to pppconfig, no modem is detected. I want my USB modem detected so I can access internet. My modem is Huawei ETS 2077 wireless.

If you have seen some thread before relating to Huawei wireless modem, bear with me. I desperately need help.

See /proc/bus/usb/ (or wherever kernel 2.6.x loads it)?


Yet when I go to pppconfig, no modem is detected. My modem is Huawei ETS 2077 wireless.
In /etc/hotplug there are tables with vendor and product strings the USB agent can look up and associate modules with, so probably it couldn't find no associated module(s). What you need to do is find the vendor and product string in /proc/bus/usb/devices or wherever kernel 2.6.x loads it and search www.linux-usb.org for it. If it isn't mentioned there there probably isn't a module and you'll have to ask for it. * You could also help by locating an easily accessable english source of specs for the product, all I found on the web where russian docs.


*BTW, when this is fixed (or not), would you be willing to add the Huawei ETS 2077 to the LQ HCL? TIA.

Check also the sda section. I found mine on /dev/sda1, and it works beautifully.

USB devices are assigned mount points with a variety of names depending on the device. On the command line enter lsusb and you will see what USB devices are recognized regardless of what they are. Some USB devices don't mount when plugged in. Card readers are one example and they aren't mounted until a card is plugged into the device. Palm PDAs are given a mount point until the hostsync is activated from the Palm.
