Re: [opensuse] mounting an USB device
Carlos E. R. said the following on 09/20/2011 08:55 AM:
Just look at the last lines of /var/log/messages, or the output of dmesg:
it will say the device name. Then you have to find out the partition
number.

Indeed.
You can run 'sudo tail -f /var/log/messages'
while inserting and removing the USB device and see what the kernel thinks the various settings and characteristics are.

But typically the desktop (kde, gnome) will offer to mount it
automatically.

True, but its possible that some setup might need to be done.
It is - out there on the boundary of improbability - that the entry in the .IDS file for that particular vendor and device is absent. Just a thought.
