Red face Is there a way I can mount an mp3 player and other usb storage on slackware


Hello I am a new member and I can use a little help with usb....

I'm trying to mount my digital camera and mp3 player but it seems that they are not getting detected... I tried "lsmod" and "lsusb" but I did not get any imput regarding usb... I don't know what specific directory they are..

I tried rebooting my computer with the devices attached but still got nothing...

I think I am using the default kernal version but I don't know what number it is..

Is there a way I can mount my usb devices..

Thank you...

After attaching your usb device, run
Code:
dmesg
and look at the few last lines. Your device should be recognized as sdX1 (X is a letter, usually X=a if you don't have any scsi disk or other usb attached). Then run:
Code:
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/usb
Change sda1 to whatever your usb devide is named and note that you must create first the directory /mnt/usb (if it doesn't exist).

And for future reference, you can find your kernel version by issuing
Code:
$ uname -r

For info, the default kernel version in Slack 10.1 is 2.4.29 and in 10.2 it's 2.4.31.
