Re: USB handling differences? [Solved]

Correction to my last post, the answer is not beyond my level of understanding, it is simply that in Manjaro the usb_storage module is loaded through modprobe whereas in Sabayon it is built in to the kernel. Therefore trying to influence it through 'modprobe.d' is futile. How to influence it as a bu...

Re: USB handling differences? [Solved]

Well the answer to the above question is fairly simple. Compiling goes a lot more smoothly if you have a compiler installed (gcc). However this technique does not seem to work on Sabayon even with a recompiled initramfs, the reasons for that are beyond my level of understanding. Shame though, it is ...

Re: USB handling differences? [Solved]

I found a better solution to this on the Arch forum (better because it allows you to keep running the up to date kernel). It works in Manjaro, but the technique is not exactly transferable to Sabayon due to differences in handling. This is the technique I used in Manjaro: First obtain the Vendor and...

Re: USB handling differences? [Solved]

No, the 3.17 kernel is affected as well, so I think I will just stick with the 3.13 one for now, I can see no advantages in the later ones only problems. I will keep 3.17 around as a backup but boot 3.13 as default.

Re: USB handling differences? [Solved]

I solved my own problem. It isn't systemd but a kernel problem. When I installed and booted the 3.13.11 kernel (the same kernel version used by Ubuntu and Mint) the device is properly recognised and configured and fully usable. When I go back to the 3.16 kernel it fails and causes a near instant cra...

Re: USB handling differences?

svantoviit, you are single handedly giving me so much assistance that I am embarrassed to disagree with you, but I must. I consider automounting of usb devices to be the work of the devil, and do my level best to disable it everywhere I can - an increasingly difficult battle as it happens - so no, a...

Re: Rigo error

Thanks to lxnay for the fix, and thanks to svantovit for pointing it out to me, but may I make the suggestion that it might have been a good idea to release it the community at large instead of just the dev mailing list? You still forget, that it was an issue with the testing branch of Entropy. Tes...

Re: Rigo error [Solved]

Should be en easy task :wink:
It was an easy task once I restored entropy.conf, without that it was an impossible one.

Thanks again for your excellent help.
