usb flash drive: no /dev entry
I followed the USB Card Reader HowTo, but I do not get a device assigned to my Lexar Jumpdrive when it is plugged in (i.e. /dev/sda1 is missing). Here is the output from
# tail -s 3 -f /var/log/messages

Am I missing something obvious?

This probably isn't it, but at least it will serve as a bump to your thread :)

Do you have other SCSI devices connected to your system? Because they might be taking up /dev entries; and, are you running your sys. on a stock kernel or one you compiled yourself? Because you may have fogotten to add the module for usb mass storage devices into it if it was hand-compiled.

Post your fstab and let's see what you have.

I have a Lexar as well and got it to work with some
help from the fine folks here.

AFAIK there aren't any other SCSI devices on the system. In fact I had SCSI turned off until I started trying to get the jumpdrive to work.

And I compiled my own 2.6.7 kernel. I have usb mass storage configured as built in, but it wouldn't surprise me if I forgot a module somewhere... That seems to be what /var/log/messages is saying.

I haven't changed my fstab yet, because I can't find the appropriate device in /dev. I have a usb printer working with cups; it shows up as /dev/usb/lp0.

Thanks for the ideas.
