Description Philip Allen 2004-10-19 02:50:35 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.2; Linux 2.6.5-1.358.8kstacks; X11; i686; en_GB, en_GB.UTF-8, en) (KHTML, like Gecko)

Description of problem:
After several syncs, the pilot daemon often stops telling the Zire 72 which USB port to use.  Thus, set kpilot to /dev/USB1 and the Zire will then connect to /dev/USB3.  Set kpilot to /dev/USB3 and the Zire connects to /dev/USB1.  The way round this is to change the kpilot configuration *just after* starting the sync on the Zire.

So it seems to be that whatever assigns the USB device to the Zire is thinking - wrongly - that the device used by kpilot is *not* available for the Zire.  Being a Zire, I am using

 options visor vendor=0x0830 product=0x0061

in modprobe.conf.

However, I haven't figured out yet just *when* it starts doing this.  Just killing kpilot and kpilotDaemon doesn't seem to reset the system - I wonder if the problem is at the USB end and has nothing to do with kpilotDaemon ?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
2.sync again... sometimes this will happen

Actual Results:  /var/log/messages will show the zire connecting to the wrong USB port

Expected Results:  it should connect to the one selected in the kpilot configuration

Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
