    Default [FIX]UsbView error

    EDIT: See the second post and thanks to arc!
    USBView error

    USBView located in BT>Miscellaneous>usbview


    error gives a popup window stating
    Can not open the file /proc/bus/usb/devices
    verify the you have USB compiled into your kernel,have the USB core modules loaded, and have the usbdevfs filesystem mounted.
    Maybe I am doing something wrong, or the setup is not right.
    Once I get a fix, will try to post it up here.
    Any one else feel free to post one up.


    This is using the vmware version

    add this line to fstab
    Code:
    usbdevfs /proc/bus/usb usbdevfs defaults 0 0
    then
    Code:
    mount -t usbfs usbfs /proc/bus/usb
    Code:
    usbview
    and it will work

    Looks like it works, Thanks for adding that arc.

    I completely forgot to look for a solution to that one.
