Description Diego Rucci 2008-05-31 09:00:36 EDT
Description of problem:
After upgrading from version 7 to 9, the module visor can't be loaded anymore.
There's no more ttyUSB devices so I can't symlink to /dev/pilot for Handheld use.

How reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. I plug my Palm TX to usb port
# dmesg
hub 1-0:1.0: unable to enumerate USB device on port 1
usb 2-1: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 7
usb 2-1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
usb 2-1: New USB device found, idVendor=0830, idProduct=0061
usb 2-1: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=5
usb 2-1: Product: Palm Handheld
usb 2-1: Manufacturer: Palm, Inc.
usb 2-1: SerialNumber: PN70M677V3N8

2. I get nothing with ls /dev/ttyU* and ls /dev/pilot 

3. Looked for /etc/udev/rules.d/10-visor.rules
BUS=="usb", SYSFS{product}=="Palm Handheld*", KERNEL=="ttyUSB[13579]",

4. Looked for an entry on /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist file (there's no entry for
visor) I assume that's ok

5. Tried to load visor module
# modprobe visor
FATAL: Error inserting visor
(/lib/modules/ Invalid

6. # dmesg
visor: `0830' invalid for parameter `vendor'

Actual results: Can't use pilot-link utils or Jpilot app. The same usb port can
be used for pendrives and bluetooth device (I rule out hardware problem)

Additional info:
# uname -a
Linux dragonauta #1 SMP Wed May 21 18:12:35 EDT 2008 i686
athlon i386 GNU/Linux
# cat /etc/redhat-release 
Fedora release 9 (Sulphur)

Comment 1 Diego Rucci 2008-05-31 10:55:21 EDT
Sorry... I find the solution.

pilot-xfer -p usb: -l
works fine, and for jpilot I use "usb:" as device instead /dev/pilot or /dev/ttyUSBn

I know, I know... STFW!
