Description Hans de Goede 2003-12-03 07:29:26 EST
gphoto-2.1.2-1 gives the following error with my usb Trust 350FS camera:
An error occurred in the io-library ('Unsupported operation'): No
error description available.
*** Error (-6: 'Unsupported operation') ***

I've done some digging trough the source, but the problem is not in
the camera driver so this probably also causes problems with other

Upgrading to 2.1.3 fixes this (checked the source again, no changes to
the camera driver so it must be somewhere in the gphoto2 "core").

I just used the old spec file, no changes needed, works like a charm!

Could you please verify that this package fixes the problem?:


Thanks. (Since you installed a package you built locally you'll need
to use rpm -Uvh --force to install this same-version one.)

Works as expected.
Comment 3 Wendigo 2003-12-23 15:09:45 EST
The update made dissappear Canon Powershot S50 from the list of
supported cameras. Now I get Canon Powershot unknow 1,2,3, 4
Do not apply the patch if you have a Canon S50
