Fedora 1 is totally obsolete. I don't know the details of device automounting, but the easiest solution would be to install a more modern distro. If you like Fedora, it's now on version 7 or 8. Other strong choices would be PCLinuxOS, Kubuntu, or OpenSUSE.

type this:
tail -f /var/log/messages
then plug in yout usb device...If it's detected you should see the response on your screen when you plug it in and unplug it. It may tell you where the device is located. If it's a memory stick you might need to mount the device so oyu can browse the files on it.

If nothing happens try a different usb device if possible and also try different usb slot on the computer. This will let you know if the device or slot is bad.

Question

Hi,

I am having a USB(pen drive) and USB to Serial Converter.I am having Fedora
1 system(2.4.22 kernel) having two USB ports.My both the ports are working as i have tested them on windows system,both the devices are working well in windows.
But on Fedora 1 system neither that USB(pen drive) is detected nor that USB to serial converter.As per the manual of that USB to serial device, device should be detected at /dev/ttyUSB0.I have tried this command "tail /var/log/messages".At my clients end the same device is detected at /ttyUSB0 port.
I am also thinking about this problem,why it is happening.

Ravi

I did the following steps:
1. I downloaded the source rpm for kernel 2.6.9-42.EL and rebuild it.
2. I patch the file present in usbat02-2.6-0.5.0/patch/usb-integration.patch.
3. replace the exixting usb.c and usb.h with the usbat02-2.6-0.5.0's usb.c and usb.h.
4. make menuconfig and select the option of USBAT/ support from USB mass storage option.
5. The setting are saved in new kernel and gave it the name usbat-2.6.9
6. Then use the command "make modules modules_install".
7. run "make install".
8. modprobe usb_storage
9. on demesg i got a meeage that i m sending u as attached file. named Error-old.doc
Should i do the steps 6 and 7 in new kernels? if i do these steps in new kernel usbat-2.6.9 ,the dmesg gives the detail that i couldnot understand attatched file with name error.doc.
