Thank you for responding.
#usbfs /proc/bus/usb usbfs rw,devmode=0660,devgid=432 0
#none /proc/bus/usb usbfs defaults 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
I have tried these lines in fstab, with the final line working. I had
to change sdb1 to sda1 and sda to sdb (usbdrive and usbpendrive,
respectivly) in order to get them to work. The last line "proc /proc
proc defults 0 0" is what my stright deb. box had. None of these lines
got rid of the "-/proc/bus/input/devices missing" boot message (I
changed the entry then rebooted, since I don't know how to umount /proc
and remount). I can fathom out that this error message is "Related" to
the usb drive problem but not the cause of it, since I have a
/proc/bus/usb dir. I have no idea what the first fstab proc is trying
to do, or why the 2nd one did not work, or, indeed, why the third one
works, but only if I change my fstab drive entries for the devices to
different designations. I guess this is why Linus dislikes this method
for handeling usb?
Thanks for the pointers.
