not claim the USB device'.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Attach camera. Gives the following output in /var/log/messages:

Mar  4 12:23:04 ice kernel: usb 1-2.4: new full speed USB device using ehci_hcd
and address 6
Mar  4 12:23:04 ice kernel: usb 1-2.4: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
Mar  4 12:26:41 ice kernel: usb 1-2.4: USB disconnect, address 6

2. run gphoto2 -P
3. Get the following error:

*** Error ***
An error occurred in the io-library ('Could not claim the USB device'): Could
not claim interface 0 (Operation not permitted). Make sure no other program or
kernel module (such as sdc2xx, stv680, spca50x) is using the device and you have
read/write access to the device.
*** Error (-53: 'Could not claim the USB device') ***

Actual results:

Fixed in gphoto2-2.1.99-7 (Hopefully will be included to FC5, otherwise will
appear as update)

I'm getting the same errors as the reporter, plus selinux denied messages ( that
the reporter may have also got but missed in his report )


Apr  3 20:28:56 localhost kernel: usb 3-1: new full speed USB device using
uhci_hcd and address 4
Apr  3 20:28:57 localhost kernel: usb 3-1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
Apr  3 20:28:57 localhost kernel: audit(1144121337.284:16): avc:  denied  {
search } for  pid=3232 comm="cat" name="console" dev=dm-0 ino=589913
tcontext=system_u:object_r:pam_var_console_t:s0 tclass=dir
Apr  3 20:33:06 localhost kernel: usb 3-1: USB disconnect, address 4

This is with fc5 final and gphoto2 2.1.99-8

I've also added my comments to bug:

I tested with selinux disabled and it worked. No errors and import of images
