So why was that in the 12.3 distribution?


It uses the /sys device tree I guess.

I'm sorry? What does?

usbview doesn't, as the error message made clear, it uses
/proc/bus/usb/devices

If it used /sys then why would it error and give that message and display no tree/

Check the man page. There are no cmmand line over-rides.

... or do you mean the 12.3 build ... no that doens't make sense.




As I mentioned, modprobe of usbcore and usb_storage don't seem to take.
No errors, just that a subsequent lsmod shows they aren't there.


usbcore is built-in on 12.3. What is your exact command line for
usb-storage?

# cd /
# modprobe usb-storage
# echo $?
0
# find /lib/modules/3.7.10-1.16-desktop/kernel/ -name '*usb-storage*' \
-print
/lib/modules/3.7.10-1.16-desktop/kernel/drivers/usb/storage/usb-storage.ko
# modprobe usb-common
# echo $?
0
# lsmod | grep usb

The -desktop flavour has the built in and not as modules.

So I should be using 'default'?

If it is built in then why can't I see any usb storage devices when I connect them?
