missing /dev/sda on new kernel
« on: October 22, 2007, 07:15:30 am »
I just compile a new kernel, since i'm using old pentium 2, i disabled all the sata and scsi drivers. Now the problem is i can't mount my usb pendrive since the sda in dev is missing. Is there any particular driver that would enable the sda?

You answered your own question. re-enable scsi support and those devices should work again. This is because scsi emulation is used for USB block devices.

[edit]
when you disabled scsi, some things that depend on it might have been disabled as well.

Most music on my soundcloud page was arranged in programs running on VL.
