Log output from kernel Oops
Was the previous 667 kernel any better?
Just to make it clear, everything related to the Palm was working OK
prior to this kernel upgrade (from kernel-2.6.9-1.667).
Current kernel is i686 UP build:-
Linux angua.localnet 2.6.9-1.678_FC3 #1 Mon Nov 15 18:28:07 EST 2004
i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
There is a udev tweak (left over from FC3 test releases) to make the
devices be visible to the system - an extra file
KERNEL="ttyUSB1", NAME="%k", SYMLINK="pilot"
This may no longer be necessary, although a look at the default udev
rules file does not convince me that this is handled correctly yet.
Had a chance to reboot the box (the visor module is jammed in and
can't be unloaded after this Oops) and retry. The problem is
definitely reproducable on my hardware.
For what it's worth, I get this Oops too. Everything was fine under
667 and now I get the oops repeatably when trying to sync my Palm
Same here, using a Palm Zire. Works OK with 667, the same Oops using 678.
