Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 53435
usb.agent uses -ge instead of -gt; PATCH INCLUDED
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:36:58 EDT
Description of Problem:
/etc/hotplug/usb.agent uses -ge instead of -gt when comparing
device numbers, which causes recognition of support devices to fail
incorrectly (e.g. Lexar Jumpshot USB with 2.4.9-ac10 kernel).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. insert a Lexar JumpShot CompactFlash USB card/cable into USB port while
running a kernel which includes the driver module for this (latest -ac series).
Other devices may also fail due to the same bug.
2. look in /var/log/messages and note the "/etc/hotplug/usb.agent: ... no
drivers for USB product 5dc/1/1" message.
3. look in /lib/modules/`uname -r`/modules.usbmap and ensure an entry
exists for this product.
Patch to fix the problem (one-liner) is attached.

bugfix for /etc/hotplug/usb.agent
usb.agent isn't used anymore - it uses usbmodules. Will fix it anyway, though.
