Hello,
I have a sheevaplug running Debian (2.6.32-5-kirkwood) on an SD card. Everything is running smoothly except that I cannot mount external USB drives.

Trying to connect a USB drive gives:
Code:
dmesg | tail
[  202.191072] usb 1-1: new high speed USB device using orion-ehci and address 2
[  202.343225] usb 1-1: New USB device found, idVendor=067b, idProduct=2507
[  202.349964] usb 1-1: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3
[  202.357147] usb 1-1: Product: Mass Storage Device
[  202.361888] usb 1-1: Manufacturer: Prolific Technology Inc.
[  202.367489] usb 1-1: SerialNumber: 0
[  202.373016] usb 1-1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
[  202.456271] scsi_mod: Unknown symbol blk_get_queue
[  202.467174] scsi_mod: Unknown symbol blk_put_queue
[  202.490700] scsi_mod: Unknown symbol blk_get_queue
[  202.501623] scsi_mod: Unknown symbol blk_put_queue

# fdisk -l  does not show the USB drive.

I get this with several different hard drives (1TB Western Digital, 40GB 2.5", USB thumbdrive, with or without external USB hub, etc.). There is very little information on the web regarding a "scsi_mod: Unknown symbol..." error. One forum discusses issues with the kernel not being flashed properly: http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=644850
However, running flash-kernel and rebooting doesn't help.

Any ideas about what could be wrong? Should I try a different kernel ? I'm at a loss here. Any advice would be appreciated.

So how long have you been in this state?
If it has just started, what did you do just before that?

I'm not sure...I had a hard time setting it up early on. After I finally put Debian on the SD, I couldn't get the external HD to work, and I thought it had something to do with its large size. I had a USB key working though. I experimented various things, but never really set up a HD because I wasn't using it as a server on a regular basis.
