Ok, so here's the way the boot process works: firmware > bootloader maybe > kernel ${parameters} > initramfs > userspace maybe On a redhat installation disk their dracut system of scripts is what builds and constitutes initramfs and their anaconda installation system constitutes the final userspace. It is udev that handles the device setup - as in, it ...

Grepping the drivers directory of the kernel source tree for RT5370 turns up; ./net/wireless/rt2x00/Kconfig: Supported chips: RT5370 Kconfig files are used to provide information for things like make menuconfig when configuring a kernel; this one happens to contain information for a number of Ralink PCI and USB based chipsets. From the same ...

go into the BIOS of the host and rearrange the order of the hard drives and removable drives. This will adjust the order as it appears to the Linux kernel.

Unetbootin can make your external drive bootable with certain ISOs without formatting the drive - it keeps all the data and adds the MBR to it, along with some unpacked folders and files from the ISO. But be careful, it has an option to format the drive, tick that checkbox before pressing next. If you want to install Ubuntu in a normal way, to separate the ...

I guess you're trying to boot your PC from an ISO located on your hard drive. I've never done this before and I don't know if it will work, but EasyBCD can add an ISO image to the boot menu. You can then boot from it and install Linux. After that boot back into Windows and use EasyBCD to delete the ISO boot entry. See ...

This may not help, but here's a similar problem I've had in the past. When I cat the device file for my mouse directly (i.e., using cat /dev/input/by-id/usb-<mymouse>) I get output similar to what you get with your keyboard (i.e., gibberish). However, some mouse motions, like left click, don't generate any printable characters, so the terminal shows ...

I'm not quite certain what you're asking. You mention 'port' several times, but then in your example, you say the answer is /dev/ttyUSB0, which is a device dev path, not a port. So this answer is about finding the dev path for each device. Below is a quick and dirty script which walks through devices in /sys looking for USB devices with a ID_SERIAL ...

Most distributions have a command called by blkid. blkid will give you a unique identifier for each drive attached to you linux box. Fstab can uses this identifier, replace the /dev/sdc1 with UUID=XXXXXXXXXXXXX. This means that regardless of the user-space designation (e.g. sdc1 scb2 et cetera) your OS will mount it correctly.

Typically you can set the BIOS to handle USB support, which will work with whatever boot-loader from there. At that point you can have a separate image available to load with USB support for those times that everything goes to pot. This may not work as some USB devices aren't supported by some boot-loaders. Two notes: 1) I haven't tried this, though the ...

I generally use this approach when plugging in a USB based printer. Unplug the USB printer cable from your computer and enter this command: $ tail -f /var/log/syslog Reconnect the USB printer cable, you should see some messages appearing. Press Ctrl-C to stop the logging. Check whether the printer gets correctly detected by the USB subsystem and ...

You can try echo -n "suspend" > /sys/bus/usb/drivers/hub/1-0:1.0/power/level to suspend the said usb device

Disregard the answer about need to initiate USB connection - it's already been initiated when you plugged in the device. If you just want to check if it's working, use dd if=/dev/ttyUSB0. If you want to actually read those characters, you need serial terminal. Use minicom (CLI, need manual), picocom (might figure it out on your own), cutecom (nice ...
