is very complex.<br>
Eventually, the fixes in the ub driver should migrate to the
usb_storage driver, but because <br>
the ub driver is working so well, they don't want to eliminate it any
time soon.<br>

  <pre wrap="">With udev and hal in the mix, it may be that your system can't use
usb-storage.ko for the device, so ub.ko is being loaded.  Or it may be
that udev is set to name all USB Storage Devices, regardless of driver,
to /dev/ub?.

In 12.0, hal used usb_storage and the scsi driver, as you explained
above.<br>
That worked fine, but I guess has it limitations to new hardware.<br>
Yes, ub is the new naming format in 12.1 (I think all distros may be
migrating to that in future releases).<br>
I think the latest version of hal and udev require the new device
naming convention.<br>
<br>
Good thing to read the&nbsp; CHANGES_AND_HINTS.TXT file in Slackware current.<br>
It explains a few major changes (fix for mysql, udev leveling scripts,
hplip no longer daemon, glibc update, lots of Hal changes)<br>

  <pre wrap="">Anyways, more grist for the mill; I'm curious how it all shakes out.

sure - i'll send updates once they resolve.<br>
Its very close to working, seems hal can see the reader, but not the
memory cards.<br>
