Description david-b 2004-02-15 00:28:04 UTC
Description of problem:
  "lsusb" as shipped by RH9 doesn't handle certain devices,
   in part because of an extremely short timeout and in part
   because of some protocol assumptions that weren't wise.

   Also, it's a bit ignorant of some common device classes,
   including modems and hubs.  It should show those too.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
   RH9 bundles an old version of "usbutils".  The latest I've
   found is 0.11, at


   There's allegedly a CVS version with some patches somewhere,
   it doesn't act public.

FIX BY:  applying the patch in the archived-email URL.

We seem to be shipping 0.11 now. Is this fixed?

Comment 2 david-b 2004-03-19 14:48:12 UTC
Not fixed in 0.11, hence the patch ... against 0.11

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2004-05-04 05:05:37 UTC
Fixed in 0.11-4.
