    proc/bus/usb problem with 2.6.31-20-generic

    I did a fresh install on a working HTPC (2.6.31-15-generic).

    Bus 003 Device 002: ID 15c2:0043 SoundGraph Inc.

    Trying to setup a remote control to work, I ran this command:

    sudo mount -t usbfs none /proc/bus/usb

    (to see if the usbhid drivers were loaded for device 15C2:0043.)

    This is the error i get back:

    mount: mount point /proc/bus/usb does not exist.

    Here is my /etc/fstab. Layout looks identical to a previous backup of the system as well as another htpc that I have in the bedroom with the same remote.

    cat /etc/fstab:
    proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
    # / was on /dev/sda1 during installation
    UUID=9b8cbace-5577-4b79-8885-7012d70cbc58 / ext3 errors=remount-ro 0 1
    # /home was on /dev/sda2 during installation
    UUID=9a359247-57d8-46b1-aca4-92a8a65ec73c /home ext3 defaults 0 2
    # swap was on /dev/sda5 during installation
    UUID=32f440ff-926a-49cc-b9af-a63939ff0ee6 none swap sw 0 0
    /dev/scd0 /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto,exec,utf8 0 0
    /dev/fd0 /media/floppy0 auto rw,user,noauto,exec,utf8 0 0

    I also ran this to add the usbfs by editing /etc/fstab and rebooting but still no joy, can not find/mount file system error.
    ~$: echo 'none /proc/bus/usb usbfs auto,devmode=0777 0 0' >> /etc/fstab

    Any suggestions, I am about ready to install a down rev kernel to see if it comes back to life.

    I forgot that under Karmic the procedure for remote controls had changed. I loaded a CF card that I used before (2.6.31-20-generic) and my remote came back to life, but I do not have the processes I used to get it to work from intrepid to Karmic. I need to find out where I wrote down my sequence for Karmic, I hope I did, took me awhile to get everything working properly.
