Thread: USB tools

    Default USB tools


    I have oS 11.1 w/ KDE 3.5 586 (not a 64 bit capable machine).

    I installed usbview only to be told that there is an issue.

    ==========================================================

    [USBView Error]
    Can not open the file /proc/bus/usb/devices

    Verify that you have USB compiled into your kernel,
    have the USB core modules leaded, and have the
    usbdevfs filesystem loaded.

    ----------
    | |
    | OK |
    | |
    ----------

    ==========================================================

    It seems that this user/admin support went away after oS 10.3

    I cannot find hide nor hair of it. Yast shows no such modules.

    Where do i go to put this support back together?

    Quite simply, right now, i want the functionality of usbview without
    throwing an error (shown previously) and quitting. It helps me
    understand a problem sometimes.

    Here you go:
    Software.openSUSE.org
    Search for usbview for your openSUSE version and arch, install run and let us know what happens.

    Usbview relies on usbfs, which opensuse hasn't used for long now. You can get it to work by mounting usbfs like this, as root:
    Code:
    mount usbfs

    Oh and by the way lsusb -v will give you as much info as usbview and more without having to mount usbfs.

    Thanks hank_se for the neat terminal command "lsusb -v". Here is what a dual port USB 3.0 adapter looks like.

    No change. Same error message. No functionality.

    Yes, it does. Sometimes it is just not as convenient, like when there is
    a slew of USB stuff hooked up.

    A similar pair of utilities for firewire would be nice also.
