Usb problem.
« on: March 15, 2008, 05:01:53 am »
Hello
I have installed vector linux 5.8 in a 500 mhz and 128 mb old pc, and I have problems with the usb. The system doesn't detect my usb pendrive automatically. I have searched in google but I am new in this things and I don't know what I can to do.

Thanks and bye.

Welcome Gusa.
 
You have left out  information.

Is this 5.8 standard or SOHO?

Pen Drive name,make and model?

Please post the output of lsusb.

This is a good read for you to start in the linux world:

You took some of the words out of my mouth as I was typing, bigpaws... ;)

Also, open a terminal and run "tail -f /var/log/messages" (without the quotes), then insert the pendrive. After a while, paste the output here.


EDIT: oh, nearly forgot, also post the output of "fdisk -l" (lowercase L) after the pendrive has been inserted for a while.

You stated all of the results were after inserting the pen drive
then it is not being recognized.

You forgot the Name, make and model of the pendrive.
