Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 332031
2 modules for one USB wireless adapter
Last modified: 2008-08-19 14:43:11 EDT
Some Belkin devices (like mine) have been made that require different drivers,
but have the same vendor and product IDs.
$ lsusb | grep -i 705a
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 050d:705a Belkin Components
$ modinfo rt73usb | grep -i 705a
$ modinfo rt2500usb | grep -i 705a
The rt73usb is the one to actually drive my hardware, but both get loaded on
startup. Is there a way to blacklist the rt2500usb driver on my system, and warn
the user that 2 drivers could be used for the same hardware?
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
I really don't know of any way to make that happen beyond manual intervention.
Do you have a suggestion?
