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?
I also have a SCSI system recently upgraded.
Performed two IDE base updates. This issue did not appear on the IDE systems.
Again, everything appears to be working fine otherwise...
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.
bogomipz for reminding me of the modules
Xentac for the /etc/fstab hint
i have the same problem but is that the best solution? i mean, if we comment out that line what are we missing?
I've just tried the experiment of commenting out the following line in /etc/fstab:
usbfs /proc/bus/usb usbfs defaults 0 0
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.
