Over the last couple of years while using Linux, I've slowly become better at what could loosely be described as "hacking".
I mainly focus on stuff that is Palm related, mainly trying to integrate some of the command line tools available for Linux->Palm connectivity with some well known Linux applications.
USB ProDrive with SD/MMC card with Linux
Recently I bought a 32mb USB ProDrive from Dick Smith Electronics. Its a USB Drive with the ability to plug SD/MMC cards into it also. With Red Hat 9.0 it and its USB Hotplug ability it recognised the Device instantly and I was able to mount the device. However I wasn't able to mount any SD card plugged into it (seeing my Tungsten W has a 32Mb SD card). I did some research and here is how I got it work.
Red Hat 9.0 by default doesn't allow multiple LUNS to be detected when a USB device is plugged into it - essential for a device with two or more scsi devices attached to it. To enable this I added in /etc/modules.conf this line. I figured making it equal to 2 would be enough for me.
options scsi_mod max_scsi_luns=2
I then went into /etc/fstab and added these two lines
/dev/sdb1 /mnt/usbdrive vfat rw,user,noauto 0 0
/dev/sdc1 /mnt/sd vfat rw,user,noauto 0 0
Now if I type "mount /mnt/usbdrive/" and "mount /mnt/sd/" I can see both my USB ProDrive and my SD card!!! Yay!
