Re: [SLUG] Re: USB - Harddrive


from my point of view all looks good.
Connect the Harddrive(can it be switch on?) and then check again
the stuff below, the mout should be fine.
Do you have other USB devices connected?
What kind of USB-Harddrive is it (manufactor etc. )

regards

 Ok now we now that you have two UHCI usb controlers and
 therefor uhci_hcd.o kernel modul should be used (check with lsmod if
 loaded)

 Have you also checked syslog and dmesg,
 please send this information as well

Hi Dimitri,

check /var/log/syslog or /var/log/messages and replug you HardDrive

tail -f /var/log/syslog

also run dmesg for kernel messages.

lspci -v

should show you which controler is used, maybe you have the wrong kernel driver loaded.
Which distribution and Kernel (uname -r) do you use?

Repost output and we can check more in detail.

Regards

Wolfgang
