Yes what?

$ uname -r
2.6.18.5-jen40b-default
$ grep -i usb /proc/filesystems
$

Ok so tell me what module I need ;-)
Wait, don't tell me, it's usbcore.ko. But that's loaded, so:

$ gzip -cd /proc/config.gz | grep DEVICEFS
# CONFIG_USB_DEVICEFS is not set

Hm, so let's see why this is unset... exactly, because it's not set
in the kernel .config files that came with kernel-source.src.rpm.
Surprising, is not it, that it was SUSE to disable it?

So stop the FUD that it's my fault.
