Description Norman Smith 2005-04-15 17:39:16 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050323 Firefox/1.0.2 Fedora/1.0.2-1.3.1

Description of problem:
After updating kernel to version 2.6.11-1.14_FC3 my Samsung ML-1740 Laser Printer connected to a usb port was no longer recognized at bootup.

/sbin/lsusb
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000

Booting on the previous kernel 2.6.10-1.770-FC3 works properly.

/sbin/lsusb

Bus 004 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 04e8:324c Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000




Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-2.6.11-1.14_FC3

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot Up on 2.6.11-1.14_FC3

  

Actual Results:  Informed me that Samsung ML-1740 Printer was not found and asked me what I wanted
to do with the configuration.

Expected Results:  It should have found the printer and booted with no complaints as was the case
when booting 2.6.10-1.770_FC3

Additional info:

See attached.

I poked around a bit and found that adding the printer to
/usr/share/hwdata/usb.ids causes kudzu to detect the printer with the new
kernel. I removed the printer configuration and booted without the printer entry
in usb.ids and confirmed that the new kernel does not detect the printer.  I
added back the printer to usb.ids and the printer is detected when booted on the
new kernel.

It "appears" something changed about the kernel.

I made a typo error during testing.

should be

Sorry about that.

Please report them upstream:

usb.ids says:

#       If you have any new entries, send them to the maintainer.
#       The latest version can be obtained from
