I've run into some problems during installation and need to use USB to transfer some files. Problem: no where to mount from. When I insert the usb drive, the prompt responds thus: @usb 3-5: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 4@ @usb 3-5: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice@ I don't know what this means. I can't mount from the command line, either, as I don't know which device in /dev corresponds to my usb drive. All of the sdaX correspond to partitions on the harddrive. There are no ubaX, but there are a series of items named "usbdevX.1_ep00" and "usbdevX.1_ep81", replacing X with the numbers 1 through 5. Attempting to mount these returns "not a block device." Here's what I'm using to mount: @sudo mount /dev/xxxx /mnt/usb@ /mnt/usb is a valid mount point Please help. I'm trying to move some source files over (no internet, can't download). I'll keep a close eye on this and respond back to any requests for further information (though, I just realized it's Christmas day for many people so I guess I won't expect anyone to read this for a day or so). Thanks for any help. I really would like to get 64Studio up and running.

Fixed

I've eschewed (didn't fix it) my problem. The packages I needed were on the install CD, but optional and thus not standard installed. Anyway to lock/delete this thread?

can't edit posts.

I forgot to mention that I'm working from the command line as X is refusing to work (this is what I'm trying to fix, but the USB problem gets in the way). I'm going to try moving my computer to an ethernet connection (my wireless doesn't work yet) and see if I can't apt-get my way out of this.
