Vince / Kevin,
Can't you give the poor man a break and perhaps help him
rather than discussing your domestic arrangements, fascinating as they no
doubt are (BTW how's the commute from Pluto in the morning ?) :-)
No, to help the beleagured would-be USB user :
What distribution do you have installed on your machine ? If it's recent,
then you should have a modular kernel and USB modules to hand. On this box
which has SuSE 6.3 installed, I simply did
and the module loaded fine. However, I have no way of testing it - the
only USB device I have is a Wingman Force and I'm not sure how much Linux
driver support there is :-) A pertinent question, however, is what device
you want to support - Linux has USB support but there are not may device
drivers as yet - mice, some keyboards but not much else, I think.
Does that get me the T shirt Kev ? Huh ? Huh ?
