Question Detect automatically USB flashdisk

Detect automatically USB flashdisk


I have a problem when I insert my USB flash disk. Linux does
not show any message to announce me that /dev/sda is available.
This problem appear when I use installed system on hard drive.

When booting with floppy bootdisk made by RAWRITE bare.i , the usb
autodetect works fine. Could someone have an idea about it ?

We need some more info.

Do a tail -f /var/log/messages and see what happens when you plug in the usb stick.

If nothing happens, make sure your kernel has hotplug support and /etc/rc.d/rc.hotplug is executable...

Else, look for any error messages during boot.
