flashing LEd and no response


I have a Diecimila, and I'm using a laptop running Ubuntu Hardy Heron. I've uninstalled brltty, but I still get no response from the Arduino, and hte LED is repeatedly flashing.

Checking my /dev directory, there's no ttyUSB* devices.

Can anybody help me please? What's going on?

After a little research, I think this is related to udev somehow.

But how??

Do you see anything in your system logs when you connect the board? I think dmesg will output the right one. Is the power LED (the green one) on steadily?
