Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 436950
Palm treo devices no longer getting detected as serial ports
Last modified: 2008-04-29 16:54:37 EDT
Description of problem:
Sometime late in the 2.6.23 kernel series for F-8, palm treo devices stopped
getting recognized as serial ports, and are now being exported as generic usb
devices. as such utilities like kpilot/jpilot are no longer able to communicate
with the treo and device sync is not possible
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.run usbadm monitor as root
2.plug in a palm treo device (I use a 700p)
3.note the output of usbadm
generic usbdevice.ep<n> events are generated
events to add ttyUSB<n> should be generated and /dev/pilot link should be created
Quite likely.I'll get on that bugs cc list. Thanks!
Fix went in 18.104.22.168-76
