when i use puppy 2 (seamonkey)with live cd i can mount an usb device like a digital camara with no problem.
after the hard disk install puppy , mut, pmount does not see a drive to mount at all.
not at bootup, not as hotplug.
what is wrong?

(by the way i downloaded puppy 2.01 and come no further than a blinking cursor after booting the cd and some thing barry wrote.
the puppy 2 seamonkey went on to the xorg config, now nothing.
what do i have to do so the bootup to xorg goos further?

G'day HH, open the edit program, (icon at top of desktop) navigate to /boot/grub/menu.1st
Locate the line kernel /boot/vmlinuz and at this point insert the term "acpi=force" (no inverted commas, leave space on either side) then save and exit.
On reboot you should find operation normal.

I also was directed to this particular fix by some of these clever chaps.
Cheers, wombat.

G'day Geoffs, Theredwagonneer, came up with an interesting idea that fixed a USB problem I had.
Have you tried just typing the modprobe uhci_hcd command?
(I think it is the USB-1 module by some manufacturers but not sure)
That brought my onboards to operation.

Then typing the modprobe ohci_hdc caused the add in card to operate.
(I think it is the USB-2 module for other manufacturers)

If this might fix your problem you can stick both those commands into the
/etc/rc.d/rc.local file and save it with ABIWORD.

This seems to kick those modules into operation on reboot without any further problem.
Wombat.

well wombat, you have won the price, it works!!

the only problem i had was what to type
you named

modprobe uhci_hcd

and

modprobe ohci_hdc

the first one did the trick, but have put them both into rc.local
only changed de ohci_hdc in hcd thinking you made a mistype there.

also fixed my shutdown problem with the apm command in rc.local

isn't it a beauty that a guy from the other side of the world helps someone getting his puppy to bark!
thanks allot all of you who thought about fixing this problem.

G'day HH, excuse me but I have a terrible memory about this stuff, I have forgotten what I typed. (I am always groping to try to make things work!)
It is interesting to see how these modules simply load when they are typed with the modprobe command at the commandline.
When you get the desired effect, simply adding that command to the loading list and that is problem fixed. (Maybe!)LOL!

If you have odd problems that you can't figure, you can get a Knoppix or Mepis CD and run that, if your problem does not appear in them, you can then type lsmod and observe the loaded modules.
If you need to you can pinch the needed module or try the modprobe and the item to see if you have it already and if it works.

The major problem is finding where they are all located and where you have to put the command string.
cheers, wombat.
