Anyone know how to solve? / where to start?


Thanks,

Try showing us the output of

lsmod | grep usb
lsusb

Now: what exactly are you trying to do which makes you think you have "lost" your usb support? Have you done anything special (like a kernel upgrade) between when you last had usb and discovered you didn't?

Generally, support dosn't just vanish.

As for general assistance. There are tutorials and FAQs on LQ. They should be your first stop. There is also an official FAQ via www.fedoraforums.org . Then there's the man pages... if you don't know what to look up, try the "apropos" command. (man apropos for usage.) And there are no end of tutorials and articals via google.

Ok it appears there are usb devices working. I can confirm this, because my usb reciever for my remote does work.

Here's the terminal:

Code:
[root@localhost ~]# lsmod | grep usb
usb_storage            68489  0
scsi_mod              139817  4 sr_mod,usb_storage,libata,sd_mod
[root@localhost ~]# lsusb
Bus 003 Device 002: ID 0bc7:0004 X10 Wireless Technology, Inc. X10 Receiver
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 05ab:0060 In-System Design USB 2.0 ATA Bridge
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0457:0150 Silicon Integrated Systems Corp.
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
What isn't working ...or dosen't appear to be working...is my usb 256mb drive, and also my usb external cd burner.
I was able to access the drives upon first install.. which was a few days ago. I have since installed various updates....and an endless ammount of trying to get new video and sound drivers...with little success and likely contributed to this problem.

Other issues that I will ask about after this:

-Getting the boot loader to work (i currently use my bios boot selection menu (F11)) I have grub installed,but it won't load upon boot,and the win XP selection dosen't work.
-Setting KDE to my deafult system session (default is currently fail safe terminal)
-Getting my dual monitor setup to work (and perhaps upgrade vid drivers)
-Better sound divers? (only one sound can play at once)


cool,

= me

This would seem likely - that is, the updates interfering. They shouldn't, however - have you updated the kernel by any chance?

You wireless stuff shows up OK.
The SiS thing must be your internal USB controller.
I take it the external drive is connected to the ATA bridge? (Things plugged in there probably wouldn't have their own entry.)
Is the CD-Writer just plugged in to an empty port?

What exactly is it that dosn't work about these things - what have you tried to do and how... like would you normally be able to see the cd drive with cdrecord -- scanbus but you cannot now? Can you not manually mount the SATA drive?

Each one of these deserves a seperate thread.
Boot loader goes to fedora
you can set KDE as default, starting from the login screen then using the desktop manager.
video and sound go in hardware. first search for your hardware in the HCL and then in the linux hardware forum - then post. The whole thing depends on your cards. Fedora has a graphical thingy for dual head setup... it sounds like you have a very non standard setup.

Have you seen the Fedora FAQ ?
