*What* "other things"? Provide complete information; it makes doing
tech support a lot easier. If you haven't read
http://catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html , go do so--it's snarky
and abrasive, but it contains very good advice for asking questions on

This is the USB Device File System. This lets you obtain information
about all the USB devices that are connected by doing "cat
/proc/bus/usb/devices" , for example. You still have to mount the
camera, or set up Redhat's automounter to mount the camera.

This is not good... could be that the camera's USB device IDs are not in
the list of recognized devices, so the usb-storage module isn't grabbing
the camera and doing the right thing. This might be fixed with a kernel
update... what's the output of "uname -a"?

Er, no. Post the *complete* output from "mount"; if the camera is
mounted, then /dev/sda1 (maybe /dev/sdb1) will show up in the output.

The /sbin directory is not in your PATH. If you do "echo $PATH", you
will see something like
...and /sbin won't be in it. The current directory is not in your PATH
either; this is widely considered to be a good thing, but it can make
things less convenient. Since /sbin and /usr/sbin contain useful things
like ifconfig, route, lsof, and lsmod , I always add them to my PATH.
and if you want to add the current directory to your PATH, you'd do
...but that's not a good idea.
