/dev/sda1 - where's it? [flash drive]

Recommended Posts

hey all!

i'm running mandrake 10 official.

well, everytime i connect my flashdrive at any usb port is the same:

it is recognized and works normally. but if i remove and reconnect again it isn't recognized (the flashdrive led isnt activated) then i need to restart entire system to get it working again.

 

what about makedev? should i use it?

I would check the output of lsmod and see if the following modules are loaded:

 

usb_storage

usb-hotplug (I think that's what it's called, but I'm not sure)

 

If not, add them to /etc/modprobe.conf (or modprobe.preload)

 

At that point, it should work for you

Try the following in a terminal:

 

modprobe usbcore

modprobe usb-storage

modprobe usb-uhci

mount -t usbdevfs /dev/sda1 /proc/bus/usb

modprobe usbcore
modprobe usb-storage
modprobe usb-uhci

mount -t usbdevfs /dev/sda1 /proc/bus/usb

/dev/sda1 already mounted or /proc/bus/usb busy
according to mtab, none is already mounted on /proc/bus/usb

guys, im really have a serious problem in my /dev structure!

modprobe returns nothing...

Sometimes when i turn on the pc, after loading nvidia driver and before starting loading KDE the system simply freezes. then I go to a terminal as root and top says modprobe is a defunct proccess. I try to kill it but it still defunct. I dont want to re-install the system again.

 

Thanks for any help!
