It is an old Asus 64 bit laptop with only 1GB of RAM. I have been
running the 32 bit versions on it, primarily because of the earlier
issues with browser plug-ins for 64 bit. Those have been resolved,
but since I only had 1 GB of RAM, I didn't see any real need to
My desktop machine is a faster 64 bit machine with 4GB of RAM. I
tried making the transition to 64 bit, but had some issues with a java
based personal finance application that didn't want to run. So, I
went back to the 32 bit version on it as well. Currently, it is still
running 9.10, and has been doing quite well with it.

Just looked at the site. Did a search for this issue under bug
listings, but didn't come up with anything. Will need to spend some
time with various phrasing in the search.

Under the .21 kernel, I have no problems accessing the device. Under
.22 and .23, the device shows up in the USB listings, but never pops
up with the automount. I don't know how to sudo the mount of the
device from the command line to see if it is a permission issue.
I suppose I could mount it in .21 and write down the path information.
Then I could reboot and try sudo mount (path) to see if it works.
But, it is after 1 am, and I am headed to bed. I may give it a shot
later today to see if it works.
