Description Caspar Zhang 2011-08-11 07:51:38 UTC
Description of problem:

usb.ids is required by /usr/bin/lsusb.py command which is new in rebased usbutils package.

w/o this file, lsusb.py returns python errors like:

# lsusb.py 
 WARNING: Failure to read usb.ids
(<type 'exceptions.IOError'>, IOError(2, 'No such file or directory'), <traceback object at 0x7f0782d411b8>)
usb1            1d6b:0002 09  2.00 480MBit/s   0mA 1IFs (ehci_hcd 0000:00:1a.7) hub
usb2            1d6b:0002 09  2.00 480MBit/s   0mA 1IFs (ehci_hcd 0000:00:1d.7) hub

# rpm -ql usbutils

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

How reproducible:

Comment 1 Jiri Moskovcak 2011-08-11 08:03:16 UTC
It's not missing it's packaged separately in package hwdata, I just didn't noticed libusb.py, so I didn't patched it. (I would expect it to honour the path to usb.ids from makefile, but it doesn't)

*** Bug 729842 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

Comment 4 Jiri Moskovcak 2011-08-11 08:38:32 UTC
Scratch build with fixed lsusb.py:


Can you please try it and send me some feedback?

Comment 5 Caspar Zhang 2011-08-11 09:44:55 UTC
# lsusb.py 
usb1            1d6b:0002 09  2.00 480MBit/s   0mA 1IFs (ehci_hcd 0000:00:1a.7) hub
usb2            1d6b:0002 09  2.00 480MBit/s   0mA 1IFs (ehci_hcd 0000:00:1d.7) hub
usb3            1d6b:0001 09  1.10  12MBit/s   0mA 1IFs (uhci_hcd 0000:00:1a.0) hub

No more warning. Seems lsusb.py has found the right location of usb.ids now.
