Fedora Tips

Here's how to get a 8in1 USB card reader to work with Fedora Core 1 - one that uses multiple LUNs for the different media:

1. Add "max_scsi_luns=6" to the kernel paramaters in /etc/grub.conf
2. Add "options scsi_mod max_scsi_luns=6" to /etc/modules.conf

Reboot so the new kernel options take effect.

When you plug in the USB card reader, you can use the right mouse button on the root window to get a popup menu with a submenu "drives" that contains entries like "memstick", "memstick1", "memstick2", etc. After you picked one of them, it will be mounted and a new icon appears on your desktop. - submitted by Sven Neuhaus
