USB Uno Smartmedia woes w/Red Hat 7.2

Post by Michae » Tue, 23 Jul 2002 02:07:58



Hello,

Has anyone successfully set up one of these smartmedia readers?  I'm
having trouble mounting the device as root. Possibly the entry in my
/etc/fstab file isn't quite correct:

/dev/sda    /mnt/smartmedia   auto noauto,user  0 0

(I also tried /dev/sda1 which didn't work either)

When I do "cat /proc/scsi/scsi" I get:

Attached devices:
Host: scsi0 Channel: 00 Id: 00 Lun: 00
    Vendor: OEI-USB  Model: SmartMedia                        Rev:1.00
    Type:
Direct-Access                                                    ANSI
SCSI revision: 02
Host: scsi1 Channel: 00 Id: 00 Lun: 00
    Vendor: IOMEGA  Model ZIPCD1024INT-A               Rev: 2,0
    Type:
CD-ROM                                                            ANSI
SCSI revision: 02

Help would be appreciated!

Mike

Two lines are needed.

none       /proc/bus/usb      usbdevfs  noauto 0 0
dev/sda1   /mnt/smartmedia    vfat      noauto,user,rw 0 0

Note the differences in the second line from your post. This
allows the user to read/write the media. It is also the correct
way to mount the partition, using the mount point you gave in
your posting.

First, I modified my fstab entry for /dev/sda1. It now mounts perfectly! I
didn't add the line "none /proc/bus/usb, etc" because it's working without
it and I don't want to*things up. Is this line really necessary? I
already have a line that reads "none /proc proc defaults 0 0" I'll add the
line you suggest if it means better performance, reliablity, etc..
Otherwise I'll leave things alone.

Thanks for your help!
Mike

1. Uno SmartMedia USB card reader: plugged in but SCSI device does not appear.

On Mandrake 8.2, I've plugged in a Uno OmniFlash SmartMedia card reader. It
shows up as an attached device here:

/mnt $ cat /proc/scsi/scsi
Attached devices:
Host: scsi0 Channel: 00 Id: 00 Lun: 00
  Vendor: LITE-ON  Model: LTR-24102B       Rev: 5S57

  Vendor: OEI-USB  Model: SmartMedia       Rev: 1.00
  Type:   Direct-Access                    ANSI SCSI revision: 02

but the corresponding /dev/sc* does not appear:

/mnt $ l /dev/scd0

How do I make /dev/scd1 appear so I can put it in /etc/fstab and mount it?

Thanks,
Adam
