Description basti 2011-05-11 15:16:15 UTC
Since approx. half a year my USB HDD isn’t detected anymore if it is connected while booting. Disconnecting and connecting helps. After some trying I see that compiling “usb-storage“ into the Kernel helps solving that problem.

I think openrc should coldplug the device at booting even if usb-storage is just a module, it should load that module if that’s necessary.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.compile “usb-storage“ as module
2. connect any USB mass storage device like an HDD or stick
Actual Results:  
device just shows up in “lsusb“, no device files like /dev/sdb1 are created.

Expected Results:  
openrc should “coldplug“ the device at boot.

I think this would be a udev thing, not openrc in particular.

OpenRC has nothing to do with it.

Try with recent kernel, latest openrc and udev-197 (or higher). If the problem is still there, attach your `dmesg` output here (plug-in, plug-out if you can)
