problems with /dev/da0
First: I'm an expirienced Linux user for 8 years and switched to BSD to try something different and because I hated the Fedora-4 distro. However, I now have a problem with my USB devices.
I tried to find the answer on all to my knowledge existing resources, to no avail. You are my last hope.
FreeBSD renault.localhost 6.0-RELEASE-p3 FreeBSD 6.0-RELEASE-p3 #1: Wed Jan 18 08:57:30 PST 2006 root@PCBSD.localhost:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC i386
For example, my 20GB MP3 device. When connected as a Mass Storage Device, 'dmesg' reports
umass0: MTC MUSIC Jukebox, rev 2.00/0.20, addr 3
However, the /dev/da0 is not linked to it. Why not? Because it doesn't exist.
renault# ls /dev/da0*
ls: No match.
With the device connected I executed
renault# camcontrol rescan 0
Re-scan of bus 0 was successful
renault# camcontrol rescan 1
Re-scan of bus 1 was successful
That neither helped.
The umass and usb modules are available in the kernel:
renault# kldload usb
kldload: can't load usb: File exists
renault# kldload umass
kldload: can't load umass: File exists
I think my problem disappears when I have the da0 device available, but I can't figure out how to enable it.
Thanks in advance for your hints!!
