Subject:   odd SDcard behaviour in freebsd-9.0-R
Message-ID:  <>

Next in thread | Raw E-Mail | Index | Archive | Help
Hi list,

I recently upgraded from 8.2-R to 9.0-R via freebsd-update and noticed
different behaviour when I plug in my Nikon D50 via the usb port. I'm
using the generic kernel while I try to sort this. It is the same in all
but identity.

8.2 behaviour used to create a device /dev/da(x)s1 depending on what
else was also connected to the USB subsystem. Typically the system would
see the card whilst it was still in the camera as /dev/da5s1 and I could
then mount it with mount_msdosfs.

9.0 behaviour just shows the following in /var/log/messages:

Feb 26 09:18:02 potato kernel: ugen4.6: <NIKON> at usbus4
Feb 26 09:18:02 potato kernel: umass2: <NIKON NIKON DSC D50, class 0/0,
rev 2.00/1.00, addr 6> on usbus4
Feb 26 09:18:02 potato kernel: umass2:  SCSI over Bulk-Only; quirks = 0x4100
Feb 26 09:18:02 potato kernel: umass2:5:2:-1: Attached to scbus5

and nothing corresponding to the device in /dev

What am I doing wrong?
