Description Mark Cohen 2004-12-22 14:16:08 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5)
Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0

Description of problem:
The visor module present in the latest 2.6.9-1.6 FC kernel appears to
be dropping the usb connection. Resulting in an inability to sync a
palm pilot over USB.

This does not happen in 2.6.8-1.521 kernels

Multiple attempts to sync will result in the kernel adding ttyUSB2 and

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
2.6.9-1.6_FC2smp, 2.6.9-1.6_FC2, 

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. load usb and visor modules
2. connect palm device
3. press hotsync button and watch dmesg.

Actual Results:  Visor module loads, tries to assign ttys, then times out.

Expected Results:  Palm connects and applications like jpilot/gpilot
etc work

this should be fixed in 1.9 which is in updates-testing right now.
Comment 2 Dave Jones 2005-04-16 01:21:20 EDT
Fedora Core 2 has now reached end of life, and no further updates will be
provided by Red Hat.  The Fedora legacy project will be producing further kernel
updates for security problems only.

If this bug has not been fixed in the latest Fedora Core 2 update kernel, please
try to reproduce it under Fedora Core 3, and reopen if necessary, changing the
product version accordingly.

Thank you.
