Does running "sudo modprobe usb-storage" do anything for you?
*

I tried this running and controlled with "lsmod" the modules were loaded. Now I got following messages after inserting the USB stick:
... hub.c: USB new device connect on bus1/1, assigned device number 3
... WARNING: USB Mass Storage data integrity not assured
... USB Mass Storage device found at 3
... /etc/hotplug/usb.agent: Setup for USB product ea0/2168/200

But I got no connection. Then I reflash my zaurus with V1.22 and tried again but without any improvements. Tomorrow I will check the hardware with the cacko V1.21 (to see, if there are no defects). Simultaneous I will compare the system messages and loaded modules (of V1.21) with the information of V1.22. Thanks till then ...

Now I have done my checks. With cacko V1.21 the CFU USB card and the memory sticks work fine. With V1.22 I haven't got any connections. Then I compared the loaded modules and found out, that "sd_mod" isn't loaded as default. I used "modprobe" to load "sd_mod" and "usb-storage". After it I saw the connection signal of the memory sticks but I have no mount entry.

So I believe something is missing (maybe at "usb.distmap") to load all necessary modules and to create the mount. At my linux PC I have no file named "usb.distmap" (it is SuSE 9.2). Have anybody an idea, which entries in which file(s) are necessary to use my USB sticks (like vend/prod 0xea0/0x2168)?

Thanks a lot for any helps ...

Okay, after a long search I found the entry for my USB memory which has to add into "usb.distmap". After adding I got no automatical connection, despite reboot.

I have to enter following commands to get a connection:
1. modprobe sd_mod (only once, but again after reboot)
2. modprove usb-storage (only once, but again after reboot)
3. mount -f auto /dev/sda1 /mnt/usb ("/mnt/usb" should be exists)

Then I can work with the USB memory so long the zaurus is ON. After this I have to umount and to mount again. I hope this could help to give me any hint how I can realise a "plug + play" connection. Regards

You need to double-check that you've entered entries for your USB device properly. All the above modules should be loaded automaticaly and sctipts should be invoked, which mount the storage.

What are the messages in syslog when you connect your USB stick with the updated config?

The message are the same:
... hub.c: USB new device connect on bus1/1, assigned device number 4
... usb.c: USB device 4 (vend/prod 0xea0/0x2168) is not claimed by any active driver
... /etc/hotplug/usb/.agent: Setup for USB product ea0/2168/200

It is a USB product: Trascend JetFlash 2.0 256M. Therefore I added the following line in usb.distmap (I think the position could be whatever):
usb-storage 0x000f 0x0ea0 0x2168 0x0200 0x0200 0x00 0x00 0x00 0x08 0x06 0x50 0x00000000
I had compared the entry with the USB information when I connected the USB memory on a PC. But I believe the entry data doesn't match with USB data what the zaurus got. I checked it also by rebooting the zaurus.

How can I see the detailed USB information at zaurus? Is it possible to activate the changed usb.distmap data without reboot? Thanks ...

Try adding that line into /etc/hotplug/usb.handmap or usb.usermap files. No need to reboot, just unplug your stick. Let me know if it helps. If it doesn't read further smile.gif

--------------------------------------

The long story is that I found out that usb.distmap file is not actualy used, but instead /lib/modules/.../modules.usbmap is used instead. The problem is that file is generated by depmod and I don't know how to make it support new USB vendor/devices classes. Depmode seems to get that info from kernel modules, so probably updated kerne modules are needed... That's what I could find so far.

Note that as I understand the issue you have isn't strictly Zaurus related, but a generic problem for USB devices support onrelatively old kernel (2.4.18). You may do some searches on your own regarding linux USB hotplug.

Good news. I move the entry in usb.handmap and it works. Thanks a lot for your help.
So the conclusion of attaching USB sticks is (could be something for the FAQ page):
1. Get your USB product info by PC with usbview (under linux)
2. Enter your this data in usb.handmap in /etc/hotplug
Have a nice day ... biggrin.gif

it might be an idea to put the FAQ, bugbreporting, and general info in the main cacko threads. you'd be able tomun-pin the respective dedicated threads to unclutter the forum display.
other idea: publish a list of known bugs smile.gif
great job so far on Cacko.

Good ideas! I was also thinking on how not to use up half of the screen with pinned Cacko topics smile.gif

IMHO, you could dump all the info in the main Cacko thread once 1.23 is out.
You might also want to copy the bugtracker info to the first post laugh.gif
