Description Bob Gustafson 2004-11-04 17:08:22 EST
Description of problem:

  I was looking for my Bluetooth Dongle and found it listed in the
Gnome->System Tools->Hardware Browser->System Devices as several devices.

There are 3 'Cambridge Silicon Radio, Ltd. Bluetooth Dongle' listings
in a tiny tiny scrollable window.

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

  No 'About' box on the Hardware Brosser Window

How reproducible:

  Every time I look at it - it is there.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  see above
Actual results:

  Three identical lines - see above description

Expected results:

  Since I have only one dongle, I expect to see one listing for it. If
there are multiple hardware devices within the dongle, I expect to see
multiple 'different' lines - hopefully describing the different
hardware devices within the Dongle. Perhaps even with an indent or
expandable menu (sub under the Cambridge Radio Ltd., Bluetooth Dongle

Also expect to have a taller scrollable window so multiple lines can
be seen.

Additional info:

[user1@hoho2 ~]$ cat /proc/version

Complete yum update as of now.

Running Selinux permissive and targeted after a 'fixfiles relabel' run
in single user mode prior to last boot.

hwbrowser gets its device information from judzu, changing component. Which
version of kudzu (and hwbrowser) do you use ("rpm -q hwbrowser kudzu")?
Comment 2 Nils Philippsen 2004-11-23 09:13:10 EST
s/judzu/kudzu/ of course
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2005-09-23 17:18:11 EDT
This is more or less expected; it's actually 3 usb interfaces.
