Re: [K12OSN] usb ports?

Barry, I called NTAVO directly and they setup a K12LTSP server in their facilities with version 5.0.0 and found the solution to make the USB ports works in their 6020P units, here is the solution just in case you know of somebody who might be having the same problem. It worked just fine for me.

Below are the instructions on how to get this to work. Please use them and let me know how it goes. I'll be calling you tomorrow for an update. Once this gets it to work we can place your order for the remaining units. No reasonable offer will be refused.

Subject: RE: 6020P Customer and USB Memory Sticks

Here’s how to get USB sticks in K12LTSP 5.0
Add the following line to /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/lts.conf in the [DEFAULT] section
            HOTPLUG = Y
The high speed USB driver in this distribution has problems.  To prevent the module from loading modify /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/rc.sysinit and change the following line from:
for MODULE in ehci-hcd uhci-hcd ohci-hcd; do
for MODULE in uhci-hcd ohci-hcd; do
Now when a USB stick is plugged in it will appear on the client desktop.

What build of K12LTSP are you running? Anyone ( any user) should have
access to usb drives via FMTools( if you are v4.4.1 or older) or if on
v5.0.0 they should automagicqlly appear after a couple seconds on the
desktop after being plugged in. IF you are on an older version of
K12LTSP and only root is getting access to FMTools /floopy icon on
desktop there has to be a permissions thing on one of the fmtools files
associated with your machine. ANother thing that may be happening
is ,there are a few usb /pen drives that will not recognize in K12LTSP.
Keep us posted on your progress.
