Problem with P2P/Cedega and usbstick. [Solved]

I just discovered these 2 problems.
1. problem: When stuck my usbstick into my computer nothing happens. "dmesg" can't find it.

2. problem: When I try to play a game through P2P, the games will not start. When I try GTA III, it just freezes, and the only option I have is to 'kill' it. While BF1942 seems to start, but comes up with this error message:

Debug assertion failed!

Module:
File:
Line: 0

Text warning :Shaders/Sprite vertex not created

Current confile:

All this happened after "the big upgrade". Oh I had to reinstall Arch because of this upgrade.

Do you have any clues?

Re: Problem with P2P/Cedega and usbstick. [Solved]

first - as root user ( su - )
plug in the usbstick and try
fdisk -l

also have you worked through the wiki instruction for usbstick ? if so, where did things start to fail
http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/USB_Storage_Devices

Re: Problem with P2P/Cedega and usbstick. [Solved]

Well it all happened when the I got the new kernel 2.6.13. But recently I have just installed Ubuntu with kernel 2.6.12, and strangely it does not find my usbstick either. So could it be that Arch have changed my BIOS setup? If so this is my MB - Abit NF7-S2G.

Re: Problem with P2P/Cedega and usbstick. [Solved]

does lsmod show usbcore? That module should load up your usb_storage module for flash drives.

Well lsmod does show 'usbcore':

usbcore               114300  5 usb_storage,ohci_hcd,ehci_hcd,uhci_hcd

But there is still no flashdrive.

Just to quell some fears, OSs don't really mess with the BIOS at all unless you tell them to (ie, run a BIOS update utility within them).

Re: Problem with P2P/Cedega and usbstick. [Solved]

Well I just heard about it somewhere. But I just plugged in my iPod:

T:  Bus=03 Lev=01 Prnt=01 Port=00 Cnt=01 Dev#=  3 Spd=480 MxCh= 0
D:  Ver= 2.00 Cls=00(>ifc ) Sub=00 Prot=00 MxPS=64 #Cfgs=  1
P:  Vendor=05ac ProdID=1201 Rev= 0.00
S:  Manufacturer=Apple
S:  Product=iPod USB Interface
S:  SerialNumber=00000076A807
C:* #Ifs= 1 Cfg#= 1 Atr=c0 MxPwr=  0mA
I:  If#= 0 Alt= 0 #EPs= 2 Cls=08(stor.) Sub=06 Prot=50 Driver=usb-storage
E:  Ad=02(O) Atr=02(Bulk) MxPS= 512 Ivl=0ms
E:  Ad=88(I) Atr=02(Bulk) MxPS= 512 Ivl=0ms

So it seems like it just is my flashdrive. How annoying.  :cry:

Re: Problem with P2P/Cedega and usbstick. [Solved]

The stock arch kernel supports PnP. This mean it doesn't need the bios set to PnP to autmatically detect resources for it. You could try disabling it in your MB as even windows XP recomends turing it off as well.
I doubt that your problem though. You may need to recompile your kernel to support that flash drive. You can use dibble's custom PKGBUILD in the wiki to do so.

Is it really necessary? My flashdrive worked well before kernel 2.6.13.

Well I only know that it is Cycon flashdrive with 512 MB. I really don't have much information on my flashdrive.

Re: Problem with P2P/Cedega and usbstick. [Solved]

If I use dibble's custom PKGBUILD, can it then co-exist with the currently kernel?
