I am trying to install Arch Linux on Laptop Dell D410.
Slackware detects external CD device as /dev/sr0.
I can't mount /dev/sr0 in Arch, tried 0.7.2 and 0.7.1.
I can't modprobe any modules, because they are not available.
How can I use /dev/sr0 during installation?
OK, I fixed it
I needed to modprobe usbhid.
First I tried usb-storage, but then scsi module was missing.
But usbhid is only meant to support usb mice or things like that...
The needed modules for external cdrom are :
But you can't load usb-storage from 0.7.2 installer, try it and see yourself.
I am almost sure that it worked after I modprobed usbhid (and yes, I know that this is module for input devices).
Well I think usbhid depends on uhci-hcd, which stands for USB1.
So if you have automatic module loading enabled in the kernel, you load both modules if you load usnhid.
