sony powershot dsc-w30

Recommended Posts

Well I got a Sony DSC-W30 a few weeks ago and I knew most sony's will be seen as like sd? drives in linux. So using 2.6.15 I plug it in and it sees the camera just not the card.

 

So how did i fix it.. well i looked at the kernel changelog and found its supported in 2.6.17 so if you have issues with getting the camera to work in linux.. run 2.6.17 and you should be good to go

all i did was take an old config they are usually in /boot some distros call it like /boot/config-kernelversion

 

then i downloaded 2.6.17

 

cp /boot/config-kernelversion .config

 

in the new kernel source in /usr/src/linux and compiled the kernel.

 

I believe the big change was in USB Mass Storage Support
