Re: Need help to boot debian on USB with more devices connected

Isn't this a well known issue with usb-booted devices? See e.g. http://www.nslu2-linux.org/wiki/Debian/TroubleShooting (section "The slug fails to reboot with 2 drives connected"). I guess you have already figured out that you can boot by detaching all devices except the boot disk.

Will it perhaps be solved when (if?) Squeeze introduces UUIDs in /etc/fstab, or is it an unsolvable problem since the kernel doesn't pick up the boot device from /etc/fstab (according to the above link)?

Hmm, seems I came up with more questions than answers. Help, anyone?

Hi guys,

I'm trying to power up my Sheeva Plug (which is configured to boot
Martin's debian from USB drive) with my USB drive connected over an
USB hub with other devices on it (i.e Usb headset).

Uboot identifies the devices connected but does not recognize my USB
drive and get stuck.

This is what I see from my terminal:

Does anyone know how to boot my system without removing other stuff
from my usb hub?

Thanks for your attention.
