Description of problem:
HP PSC 1110 printer/scanner not working with kernel-2.6.5-1.358.
"ptal-init setup" does not detect it. It works nicely with
kernel-2.4.22-1.2188.nptl According to hpoj-devel post
it looks like being a problem from 2.6.3 and up and affecting some/all
HP usb printers.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot to kernel-2.6.5-1.358 (hpoj-0.91.7 installed, psc connected
and power on)
2. run "ptal-init setup" (or "service hpoj setup") as root
3. choose no to probing parallel-connected devices and then yes to
probe for usb-connected devices
Actual Results: device is not detected
Expected Results: device should have been detected
Booting to kernel-2.4.22-1.2188.nptl and repeating the steps ends with
device been detected properly.
Finally got round to do clean FC2 install and my psc 1110 works like
charm. Seems that this was only update related problem.
mass update for old bugs:
Is this still a problem with the 2.6.9 based update kernel ?
If I remember correctly I did the update from fc1 to fc2 from network with yum.
That isn't supported, right? And the clean install fixed it back then as I noted.
I've already upgraded that install to fc3 and there has been no problems with
the HP psc 1110. So I think it was pretty specific problem releated just to the
network upgrade I used.
