Kudzu seems unable to re-detect my USB controller.
I had disabled USB in my BIOS, and allowed Kudzu to remove the
configuration. Turned out I didn't need to disable the USB, so I turned
it back on. Kudzu would not retect the USB settings.
The hwconf file seemed to still have USB settings in it, however the
driver field was "disabled" and I couldn't figure out how to fix it by
On a related note, I expected the --bus flag to just check for things on
that bus. Not "check this bus, and remove everything else from hwconf."
Reproducible: Didn't try
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install seawolf w/ USB on
2. Turn off USB, allow kudzu to remove controllers
3. Turn USB on
Adding usb to /etc/modules.conf and insmoding modules by hand didn't seem
to help Kudzu detect the USB hardware. Even after deleting the disabled
USB sections from the hwconf.
What does lspci -v say after you've re-enabled it?
closing, no feedback in bugzilla.
