i dont seem to have any usb devices able to work on Arch .6 ( 2.6.7)
i have tried digikam and gtkam for my usb camera and it could not be found.
i tried xcdroast and it didn't find my usb cd-writer.
both of these worked without a hitch in debian, so it must be a kernel module that i have failed to load.
i tried a mod-probe usb and it says can not find module usb
tried modprobe usb-storage and was informed that module usb-storage was already in the kernel. don't know how to use hotplug even if it is applicable.
so, what should i do ? this is an Arch stock kernel - not self made.
here is my lsmod

You'll also need to do
that's all I need, along with usb-storage
ok i tried that, and it loaded. however, when i tried to run gtkam from the terminal it told me that it could not list folders in /
ok, got no idea what that means. Tried to run as root. same results.
what is the next step - I R baffled its your call
thanks for the reply and help btw
You may need fstab entries for each of your devices and a mount directory entry in root /mnt
Hard work does not kill people but why risk it: Charlie Mccarthy
A man is not complete until he is married..then..he is finished.
When ALL is lost, what can be found? Even bytes get lonely for a little bit! X-ray confirms Iam spineless!
ok, got the camera working, still no CD-Writer
in debian, the CDRW did not have its own FSTAB entry, but i will do what you suggested and try it out if that might help, i kinda need a step by step though......
hmm - just read your other thread. Seems like I totally forgot about the usb controller modules - I thought they got called in when you modprobed usb-storage but obviously not. Sorry about that
