iPod and USB sticks no longer mount after 10.5.3 install

Hi!I installed 10.5.3 over Leo4All V3 10.5.2 using the JaS 10.5.3 update. Everything works just fine except mounting USB devices. My USB mouse and keyboard work just fine but if I try to plug in a USB stick or my iPod Nano 3rd gen I get nothing.The devices aren't seen on the desktop or in /Volumes. iPod does says that it is connected. Both USB stick and iPod work just fine in Windows Vista and worked perfectly fine in 10.5.2 but not in 10.5.3.What can I do to fix this?


EDIT: I'll reply to myself. I just had to replace the 9.2.2 kernel I was using with the new 9.3.0 kernel. Copy & pasted from a "green demon" comment:


Backup kernel: sudo mv mach_kernel mach_kernel.9.2.2

Install new kernel: sudo mv mach_kernel.new mach_kernel for non-vanilla

or sudo mv mach_kernel.orig mach_kernel for vanilla kernel (SSE3 ONLY!!)


I went with the non-vanilla because I have no idea what the differences between the vanilla and non-vanilla are.
