How can I setup my Linux system to auto-load the USB driver? When I
originality configured th OS I did not use USB devices.
I put the line "none /proc/bus/usb usbdevfs defaults 0 0" in my
/etc/fstab file however when I boot my machine, the mount fails because
the USB driver is not loaded. I can however "modprobe uhci" and them
"mount /proc/bus/usb" and all will work fine.
My guess is that I should set it up such that the mounting of
/proc/usb/usb was dependent on the loading of the USB module. I know
that for instance when I mount a CD from my SCSI CD-ROM the drivers
for isofs and SCSI are auto-loaded. So it seams to me that the USB
file system could work in a simulator fashion.
distro: RH7.1 ish
