Anybody that's familiar with RH 9 with kernel 2.6, feel free to step into the fray. I'm out.

(as I've not done anything with 2.6 yet, still using slackware 2.4, and no experience with RH9)

Note: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/history/274900 and http://www.linux-usb.org/devices.html .

While 2.4 is pretty stable for usb, it seems 2.6 is still getting its game on (from the little I've read). You might revert to 2.4 kernel and see if you get the same results. Is there something you 'just gotta have' in 2.6? Try 2.4 and see.

FWIW...I was having this same issue with the RH9 stock kernel (2.4.20-6, I believe). I upgraded to FC3 & ran up2date...which included an update to 2.6.10-1.741, and no more issues.

Hi,

usb-storage usually requires the scsi-disk module. Is this compiled (in or as a module) ?

How many /dev/sd* devices do you have ? Are you using Udev ? (Are the devices created automagically, or is your /dev folder full already of 250 Million devices ?)

If you're using Udev, then check your log files (I'm guessing /var/log/syslog or /var/log/messages) for errors / warnings / information when you plug the device into your fully booted system.

No, it does not as you still can't mount. Or did I miss something?

// edit, yes I did miss something; removed rest of message

Unable to open /dev/sd...

I hit this error recently.
Cleverly I had tried to run fdisk when I wasn't SuperUser.

1 hour later I figured it out. Duh
