Description Gregory Feiner 2004-11-16 10:22:21 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; 
SV1; .NET CLR 1.0.3705; .NET CLR 1.1.4322)

Description of problem:
System: HP DL360 G4
OS: RHEL 4 AS, IA32 & X86_64, Beta 2

Test Kit: rhr2-rhel4-0.9-14.9b.noarch.rpm

Running the test kit seperately.  Not using iSpec.

Problem:  After running hardware dectection, the test kit creates a 
hardware.conf with a incorrect USB setting.  On the DL360 G4, it 
creates a line of "USB 0" even though the system has two USB ports.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RHEL 4 Beta 2
2.  Install the beta test kit
3.  Run pembroke, then run hardware detection.

Actual Results:  Incorrect setting in hardware.conf

Expected Results:  Hardware.conf should have a line of "USB 2" for 
this particular server.

It should be prompting the user for the number of USB ports since
because of how USB works it's not actually possible to tell how many
physical ports there are (AFAIK).
Comment 2 Rob Landry 2004-11-18 11:12:30 EST
Going forward; I think iSpec should establish that value.
Comment 3 Gregory Feiner 2004-11-18 11:16:04 EST
When running hardware detection, it does not prompt for the number of 
USB ports.
Comment 4 Jay Turner 2004-12-01 04:03:27 EST
Yeah, it's not prompting under the 2.6 kernel because tests/USB is doing this:

if grep -q usbdevfs /proc/mounts; then

But under 2.6, the usb filesystem gets mounted as "usbfs":

/proc/bus/usb /proc/bus/usb usbfs rw 0 0

Still seeing this with rhr2-rhel4-0.9-14.9e.dummyrun.
