Re: [K12OSN] USB and Floppy support not working

When I upgraded the fuse package, I lost USB access because of issues with users no longer being associated with the fuse group.  Also, for whatever reason, fuse wasn't being loaded when the system restarted.  I used modprobe fuse and then everything worked again.  I am using LDAP for authentication.
