I want to add one more point about this problem. When I try to use lsusb, as
mentioned below, I get an error message like so:


"unable to initialize libusb: -99".


Still, searching for this expression with Google led to no positive result
in this particular case insofar as I was able to know.

Subject: [vserver] upgrade VServer breaks lsusb


When I install Gentoo Linux-3.13.11-vserver- using the very same
kernel ".config" file used for linux-3.10.4-vserver-, I can no longer
use lsusb, although it, lsusb, works just fine on the earlier one. I have
scratched my head bare trying to figure out what the problem is, but
trial-and-error and google have gotten me no closer to a solution. I am not
a developer, but I have found that with VServer- there is a
"/dev/bus/usb" getting created; but with VServer- there is no
"/dev/bus" created.

I am pretty much at a loss as to how I can troubleshoot this, but I am
willing to try up to a point, depending on time constraints. If someone has
any suggestions, I would sure like to hear them. Thanks.
