Apart from your initial request you don't tell us if you have tried the suggestions or reported the result. Have you done modconf? have you installed hotplug and discover? If you used a standard kernel then usb support is included and is available via modconf. Help us to help you.

he has some sort of digital camera that he wants to access via usb to retrieve the pictures, not a webcam. it's very hard to communicate with this guy because he doesn't provide any useful information. i'd say this is a lost cause until he can tell us what hardware he has, what things he has tried, etc.

What I suggest is going to the gphoto2 homepage. There is a list of supported digital cameras and a lot of information on how to get them working with Linux.

what is the brand name and model of the device?

Had a look at gphoto and it would appear that there is no support for Rimax but it is still worth trying to install gphoto2 and trying it.

You'll need to install usb-core and usb mass storage via modconf.
Add the following line to your /etc/fstab for the mass storage;

none /proc/bus/usb usbdevfs defaults,devmode=0666 0 0

then restart your system. With the camera connected to a usb port switch it on and then examine /var/log/syslog or /var/log/messages to see if the camera is seen and the drivers loaded. I personally use Digikam (apt-get install digikam) as the gui frontend for gphoto2. From the command line do gphoto2 -h or --help to see the various switches available. If the camera is not being seen then I have no further suggestions but perhaps someone more experienced can help. I found the article at http://jace.seacrow.com/tech/linux/usbcam very helpful. Bear in mind the line above which is different to the one in the article. The one above works for a Kodak camera on my Sarge system. With the aid of the afore mentioned article I setup my Kodak camera with Woody very easily. If you fail completely then I suggest perhaps buying a camera that is supported under Linux. Cameras of the type you are using are now very cheap in the UK.

Caused by either 1 of 3 faults;
1. usb mass storage module not installed or;
2. you have not rebooted the system or;
3. you have not entered the line correctly or not at all in fstab

try reading the article referred to in my previous post carefully as it gives details of how to check these.

From the reports above everything seems to be working fine with regard to usb and gphoto2 but your problem is that it does not recognise the camera. Unless you have some background in writing C code and can recode the the source for your particular camera it isn't going to work. Having looked at the camera you have it appears to be a European based operation and not very common. If you want a camera to use with Linux you are going to have to buy a camera that is supported by gphoto2.
