Well my ideal thing would be use the dsl4 as that is what is out in the field working well. I have the perl modules installed, cursor's hidden, no gflash error, but it's that usb is all that is left.
Lspci shows the following;
00:00.0 Host bridge: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT8623 [Apollo CLE266]
00:01.0 PCI bridge: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT8633 [Apollo Pro266 AGP]
00:10.0 USB Controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT82xxxxx UHCI USB 1.1 Controller (rev 80)
00:10.3 USB Controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. USB 2.0 (rev 82)
00:11.0 ISA bridge: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT8235 ISA Bridge
00:11.1 IDE interface: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT82C586A/B/VT82C686/A/B/VT823x/A/C PIPC Bus Master IDE (rev 06)
00:12.0 Ethernet controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT6102 [Rhine-II] (rev 74)
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT8623 [Apollo CLE266] integrated CastleRock graphics (rev 03)
So it shows, but as a test, I use minicom. Change my device to /dev/ttyUSB0, run it and get dropped to;
minicom: cannot open /dev/ttyUSB0: No such device
and dropped back to shell where the older box's they came right up. If the moderators see fit, move this post to general, or I can start a new one, but I would much rather keep the dsl4 and just get the USB to work, but can't deal with all the kernel stuff. So is there a way to test another way?
dmsg is empty (nothing seems to log to it)
usb-storage 62208 0
usb-uhci 21708 0 (unused)
usbcore 58240 1 [usb-storage hid usb-uhci]
I tried just popping in a usb flash drive (ironically the one I installed dsl from) but I get nothing. I am looking around and wonder what the diff's are, embedded, initrd, syslinux, vmx, etc. all found here (ftp://ftp.oss.cc.gatech.edu/pub/linux/distributions/damnsmall/current/)
Thanks again ...
