Kernel 2.6.9-1-scsi and missing mount point /proc/sub/usb

Hi.

I've just upgraded to kernel 2.6.9-1 SCSI and it appears that everything is working OK with one except: during startup, after the message "Mounting Local Filesystems", there is a stray message about the mount point /proc/bus/usb being missing. After startup, I've determined that /proc/bus/usb IS there.

The relevant line that produces this message is in /etc/rc.sysinit:

# now mount all the local filesystems
/bin/mount -a -t nonfs,nosmbfs,noncpfs,nosysfs

I don't see this problem with any of the non-SCSI upgrades that I've just done (three).

Any ideas about what could be causing this?

Thanks.

I also have a SCSI system recently upgraded.

Same Issue.....

Performed two IDE base updates. This issue did not appear on the IDE systems.

Again, everything appears to be working fine otherwise...

Re: Kernel 2.6.9-1-scsi and missing mount point /proc/sub/usb

i had the same issue. before upgrading to 2.6.9-1 i had compiled 2.6.8-1 and had uhci_hcd compiled into the kernel. so nothing /etc/rc.conf told kernel 2.6.9-1 to load that module. that seemed to fix other issues but, like you i still got that mount error. in /etc/fstab i commented out:

usbdevfs               /proc/bus/usb usbdevfs  defaults            0      0

all seems fine now.

thx to
bogomipz for reminding me of the modules
Xentac for the /etc/fstab hint
:oops:

Re: Kernel 2.6.9-1-scsi and missing mount point /proc/sub/usb

Hi alkat.

I've just tried the experiment of commenting out the following line in /etc/fstab:

usbfs                  /proc/bus/usb usbfs     defaults            0      0

and rebooting.

Here's what I find in /etc/mtab:

usbfs /proc/bus/usb usbfs rw 0 0

So it would appear that the only possilbe/theoretical problem with commenting out this line in /etc/fstab might be on custom options for this mount point.

Regards,

Win
