Description of problem:
Could you add support for the Sony Digital Camera model DSC-P72 in next
releases? The previous model (DSC-P71) worked very well. Both models supports
the USB mass-storage-device (through scsi emulation I think).
I've found this URL that contains a patch to support DSC-P72:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
This should be advocated upstream (firstname.lastname@example.org).
In upstream 2.4.23-pre9. Not sure if FC-1 picked it though.
I've just used one of those cameras on Fedora 1. It was preety simple
with gphoto2, and, with kernel 2.6 from Arjanv, just like an ordinary
usb mass storage driver. Don't know if this helps you on RH8, but just
to let you know this was fixed upstream.
Just remind that, with 2.4 kernels, you have to use "PTP" mode and it
is recognized from gphoto2. On 2.6, use it with "NORMAL" mode and
mount it as any camera.
Can I close this now?
Yes, I think you can. As Alexandre Strube says it works with the 2.4
kernel in PTP and as a normal removable disk and PTP i 2.6.
