Description of problem:
i've just installed redhat 8.0.A second edition.
my pendrive usb isn't recognized anymore!
before it was working perfectly with redhat 8.0
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install redhat 8.0.A from scratch
2. attach a pendrive usb to the usb port
3. mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/pendrive -t vfat
3. i get an error...
Um, what is this 8.0.A Second Edition you speak of? Where did you get it from?
I found RedHat 8.0.A (Second Edition) on RedHat Magazine (number 3)
It's a printed magazine from the italian RedHat, I suppose...
(I don't know if it is printed in all countries, but if you go to
www.redhat.com and search for "magazine" you get some links)
This is probably an issue with whatever kernel is on that. What's the output of
rpm -q kernel?
assigning to someone who knows about the second edition
it doesn't work with redhat 9...
i've downloaded a standard kernel 2.4.20 and recompiled it.
now usb works again, so maybe it's the redhat kernel the culprit.
The "3. i get an error..." is not good enough. At least I need the complete
error text, better yet just copy from console into the bug. If it's a long
trace, save it into a file and attach as attachement.
Does 2.4.20-18.8 errata work?
Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem
The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases,
