Description of problem:
Since 0.82-1, I'm getting incomplete information from "lsusb".  It also complains when I run it:
  lsusb: cannot open "/usr/share/usb.ids", No such file or directory

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

How reproducible:
Comment 1 John Ellson 2009-06-19 19:34:30 EDT
On fc10 lsusb used to read /usr/share/hwdata/usb.ids.  Now on rawhide the executable agrees with the man page, but either both are wrong, or hwdata-0.222-1.fc10.noarch installs /usr/share/hwdata/usb.ids in the wrong place.

A workaround is to:
    cd /usr/share
    ln -s hwdata/usb.ids

Comment 4 Nalin Dahyabhai 2009-07-01 12:07:45 EDT
I installed usbutils-0.82-3.fc12.x86_64 and 'lsusb' appears to be working properly again.  Thanks!
