Hello there,

I try to mount a USB Mass Storage Device (Sarotech USB/Firewire Combi
Case). Kernel reports a ugen0 (dmesg) object. How is the appropriate way

to mount it? MAN pages aren't a big help...can do it this NEWSGROUP..?
;-)

Thank you for a good link on USB Howtos or even a good hint.

cu,
Peter

Hi,

I guess that OpenBSD does NOT (not listed in the hcl) support this type of mass storage device (as does not linux). My dmesg output doesn't show an usb mapping on an existent scsi
dev node (as it usualy does).
It just says that there is something (à la ugen0 not umass0) and ugen0 is a general usb device not implicitly recognized... :-(

Do I have to make a special node?

I don't know authoritatively if it is supported or not. But I know USB 2.0
work is being *aggressively* pursued. The problem at this point is not the
developers, but the lack of actual hardware to develop against. I shipped a
USB 2.0 host adapter to the team this week to help them get it going and
they already have a driver working for it. But they desperately need USB
storage devices and other peripherals to get this stuff working. If you can
swing it, try sending them a drive to help get your own hardware supported.
