mounting USB flash disk

I am running Gentoo linux and have had problems mounting USB flash drives.
I was wondering if someone could give me steps on how to mount (the device
shows up on /proc/bus/usb/devices as Crucial Gizmo, and says:
T: Bus: 02 Lev=01 Port=00 Cnt=-1 Dev#= 2 Spd=12 MxCh= 0
D: Ver= 2.00 Cls=00(>ifc ) Sub=00 Prot=00 MxPS=64 #Cfgs= 1
Vendor=0634 ProdID=3400 Rev= 0.01
S: Manufacturer=Crucial
S: Product=Gizmo
S: SerialNumber=XXXXXXXXXXX
C: #Ifs= 1 Cfg#= 1 Atr=80 MxPwr=120mA
I: If#= 0 Alt= 0 #EPs= 2 Cls=08(stor.) Sub=06 Prot=50 Driver=usb-storage
E: Ad=81(i) Atr=02(Bulk) MxPS= 64 Ivl=0ms
E: Ad=02(O) Atr=02(Bulk) MxPS= 64 Ivl=0ms
from what I know of USB, I think the e: lines are endpoints, and some of
the rest is obvious. However, when I try mac-fdisk /dev/sdX(a,b,c,or d),
it doesn't find the device. I am on a powerbook G4 800mhz and it is
plugged into the back of the computer (port 2). Does anyone know how to
solve this problem?
thanks
nick

First, next time, please start a new thread instead of replying to an
existing one.

That said, you'll have to provide more information. Can you give us the
kernel messages from dmesg related to the USB stick? Are you sure you
have USB disk support and generic scsi disk support in your kernel?

Sorry about replying instead of starting again.
Are there any just-X11 browsers besides links -g that I can use? Whenever
I press the back arrow it goes back and deletes the email I was writing.

Anyway, the only messages in dmesg (I do not know why) are keypress events!?!
I used to be informative, but now all it has are keypresses...

I have SCSI support, and USB mass storage (with all sub-options) compiled-in.
Do I need to add support for SCSI disks, CDROMS, generic devices, etc in
order for USB versions of those to work?
Thanks,
nick

Hello Nick,
You need modules for SCSI device support, SCSI disk support and please enable
'Probe all LUNs on each SCSI device' as it helps with Multi Card Readers.
As long as the USB is hotpluggable, you should install hotplug and udev
packages.
A good idea is to put the USB Disk in and to have look in dmesg
and/or /var/log/messages.
Normally I the disk should recognized by the kernel and produce at least some
messages. (May be a lsusb show if there is something recognized.)
Best regards Joerg

No worries.

Turn off event debugging in your kernel.

Re: mounting USB flash disk [In reply to]

Sorry, links ate the rest of my message.
syslog-ng dies with "bad config file"
hotplug usb:
Bad USB agent invocation, no action
and dmesg still only shows the keypresses (I got rid of Kernel hacking->
debugging). I also added SCSI multi-LUN support, HD support, and general
device support. USB mass storage became module (to test in MOL). and I
also tried to fix my windowing problems with GNOME, KDE, and XFCE (all
installed, all failing) by making radeonfb a module.
sorry,
nick

Re: mounting USB flash disk [In reply to]

Hello Nick,
I checked your syslog-ng.conf. The only difference is logging to /dev/console
instead of /dev/tty12. Just give it a try.
I suggest to solve the problems in the order as they appear while booting.
So first of all you need an working syslog-ng.
I installed version 1.6.8-r1 with default syslog-ng.conf.
Please try syslog-ng -s /etc/syslog-ng/syslog-ng.conf;echo $?
to check your config file.

After this please check your hotplug config:
cat /proc/sys/kernel/hotplug
It should be /sbin/udevsend.

To find out what goes wrong you should make an lsusb which is provided by
sys-apps/usbutils.

Best regards Joerg

Re: mounting USB flash disk [In reply to]

Hello Nick,
please start syslog-ng -d on a command line, so that you see debug messages.

Re: mounting USB flash disk [In reply to]

I finally just unmerged syslog-ng and reemerged it, but it still had the
same error. It also failed on both with both /dev/tty12 and /dev/console.
syslog-ng -s /etc/syslog-ng/syslog-ng.conf;echo $?
returns 0 :-(
I ran lsusb -vv and I have attached the output (minus flashdrive serial
number)
Luckily, cat /proc/sys/kernel/hotplug is correct.
Are there any other good loggers? I am currently emerging metalog...
thanks for all the help,
nick

Re: mounting USB flash disk [In reply to]

This also fails (with same error 'Error initalizing configuration,
exiting.'). I am having trouble with dbus/hald/dcop, and those are
required for XFCE/GNOME/KDE and metalog. I was thinking that metalog
instead of syslog-ng would work, but I guess not...
