Description Gian Paolo Mureddu 2007-07-25 20:45:45 EDT
Description of problem:
After some updates in the past days, libmtp is only usable by root. Users get a
a rather cryptic message that the operation is not permitted:

usb_claim_interface(): Operation not permitted

This results in a LIBMTP panic and inability to use the library or any
applications that make use of it (such as Amarok)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Applay latest updates
2. try to run mtp-detect
Actual results:
libmtp is useless for regular users

Expected results:
libmtp to be used by regular users.

Comment 1 Gian Paolo Mureddu 2007-07-25 21:00:55 EDT
Apparently the new kernel is at fault here, just booted into the previous 2.6.21
kernel and everything seems to be OK now... Strange that the kernel might be the
root of this problem, though.

I think we're seeing bug 249026 manifest itself due to renaming of
the subsystem.
