View Full Version : networking and usb questions

ok, I've run into two problems here. First, it seems that I can't mount usb drives anymore, and second the builtin gigabit ethernet card on this msi motherboard runs really really slow when transfering files over the network (browsing the web seemed fine however).

about the usb, I have removable storage to be mounted when hot-plugged or inserted, autofs is also installed. looking at the system log, I see a message that says:

usb 2-6 configuration#1 chosen from 1 choice
scsi6: SCSI emulation for USB mass storage devices
scsi 6;0;0;0;Direct-Access SanDisk Cruzer Mini
sda: Write Protect is off
sda assuming driver cache: write through
sda: sda1

Attttached scsi generic sg0 type 0

what makes you think that the removable storage isnt mounted?

previously when inserting the usb drive it was automounted. but now I have to manually mount the usb drive and manually dismount it. how can I get the automount working again?
