USB problem after installing Fedora 18

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – I have executed DBelton's advice: yum --releasever=18 --disableplugin=presto distro-sync After upgrading from Fedora 17 to 18 using FedUp, I'm having USB problems: My USB keyboard and mouse work, but only if I use the hardware in place at the time of upgrading. My wife want's her keyboard back. My machine cannot see either my external hard drive or my thumb drive. I executed "tail /var/log/messages" both before and after plugging in my external hard drive. There are no differences in the listings. I have no /run/media directory, but am not sure whether I need one. W (HowTos)
