So I finally got my zip drive working in Gentoo (apparently you can't have a zip drive and CD-ROM on the same IDE channel, I know, it doesn't make sense, but what ever). So I got it working, and gentoo parks my zip drive at /dev/sda which is where my pen drives usually go when I plug them in.

So now, when I plug in a pen drive I get nothing, nothing on sdb either or anywhere else logical. Any ideas on how I can get around this problem?

What do the kernel logs say about it?

You know, I feel bad admitting it, but I can't even figure out where my kernel log is, I have never had to pull it up before and I can't find it now. I looked all through out /var I even looked in the config file in /etc but couldn't figure out where its outputting the messeges to.

So, I have no answer for you.

Ok, I am was confused because emacs takes a longer time than I am used to load all 45,000+ lines so I wasn't being patient enough with it last time.

I found older entries like this one before I got the zip drive working.

CODE
Feb 14 00:09:48 localhost scsi1 : SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices
Feb 14 00:09:48 localhost Vendor: Fujifilm  Model: USB Drive         Rev: 4.20
Feb 14 00:09:48 localhost Type:   Direct-Access                      ANSI SCSI revision: 02
Feb 14 00:09:48 localhost Attached scsi removable disk sdb at scsi1, channel 0, id 0, lun 0
Feb 14 00:09:48 localhost Attached scsi generic sg1 at scsi1, channel 0, id 0, lun 0,  type 0


But now I get nothing when I plug the pen drive in. The file should be updateing live right?

The file will updatye live, but the changes probably wont show up "live " unless you use the "tail" command to view it

ie tail -f /var/log/messages (or tail -f /var/log/kernel/current which is what works on my Gentoo box)

If nothing happens, then I guess something is badly screwed.
