I booted my Linux Mint (Debian Edition) 201204 and ran lsmod on the Sandisk Cruzer U3 (2G) USB Drive.
The additional Modules that were in lsmod were:
usb_storage 35245 0
uas 13175 0
modprobe -l should have shown a list of all modules available for the kernel, but the manpage shows that the -l option
was removed. So I just used mc to go down the directories at /lib/modules/'uname -r'
# cd /lib/modules/3.2.29-smp
I located these modules (*.ko) at: /lib/modules/3.2.29-smp/kernel/drivers/usb/storage
# modprobe usb_storage
# modprobe uas
got my Sandisk U3 (2G) USB Flash Drive auto mounting, and I was able to access it.
Should these modules be reported (somehow) so they are loaded by the system, or is this a normal situation?
It's the first time I've run across a USB Flash Drive that wasn't automounted, on any Distro I've used, and that has been a bunch.....
THANKS! GREAT TIP!
