USB test complaining about USB hub
Last modified: 2015-01-07 19:09:01 EST
Description of problem:
With rhr2-rhel4-0.9-14.9e.dummyrun, after making changes for 'usbdevfs' ->
'usbfs' I'm getting told to remove a hub before the test will run correctly.
This is on a Dell PE2800, which, although it's not in front of me, I'm pretty
sure is one of the Dell boxes that actually has a USB hub integrated into it.
I'm not sure that's something that we can even detect automatically, but might
make sense to have some sort of override or something so that they can actually
get through the test. Something like allowing them to normalize to that state.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
The test should proceed anyway; and assuming you don't include the
"port" the USB hub is on then it should even repeat the correct number
of time. Would it work to simply change the phrasing to suggest
removing those? Unfortunately AFAIK it's not possible to know how
many "physical" USB ports there are so we run off of user provided
(eg. error prone) data anyway.
As of 1.1 all USB hubs should be ignored.
