Full Version: Usb Card Reader
Linuxhelp > Support > Technical Support
I am trying to determine if my embedded USB controllers even work. I have a Stratitec 10:1 reader plugged into a USB port.

Another help site mentioned this command to scan all the system busses...

But, I don't see anything pertained to USB.

I don't know what to do. Do I need to go buy a seperate controller card? Is there some setting in Redhat I need to click?

Run lsmod to see what modules are loaded, (usb_ehci or ochi should be there somewher for usb support). or, try running tail -f /var/log/messages and then plugging in a USB device

The "tail" command worked great. I typed cat /proc/scsi/scsi and there was nothing there. Then I typed that "tail" command and plugged in the reader. I watched it detect and assign the scsi, etc. I did cat /proc/scsi/scsi again and the reader was there. THanks a lot. Now I just need to figure out what that "tail" command did...

tail just shows you the alst ten lines of a file in realtime (ie as it is updated). in this case we uised it to view the logs and see what was going on.

OK, I thought that this was done... This card reader is supposed to have 4 seperate logical numbers (LUN)... I got the Sony MS port (LUN) to work, but not the other three... Also, the reader only comes up as read only mode for my users... How do I make it read/write?

All you need to do is compile the x grep | h kernel code with gcc 1 hdrop. It simple if the kernel deposite is set 1 suid to root 2 okay thanks
