Description lirui 2011-08-26 02:48:31 UTC
Description of problem:

When you plug in a ZTE device (the vid is 19d2)and use “lsusb” ,then you will
see the vendor_name of information is “ONDA Communication S.p.A.”,not "ZTE WCDMA Technologies MSM" 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
as i see ,all the version

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.plug in a ZTE device (the vid is 19d2)
2.use “lsusb”
Actual results:
will show the vendor_name "ONDA Communication S.p.A."

Expected results:
vendor_name shall be "ZTE WCDMA Technologies MSM"

Additional info:
as the lsusb will find the usb.ids in the path /usr/share/hwdata 
so please fix this file to change the ZTE vendor_name
"ONDA Communication S.p.A." to 
"ZTE WCDMA Technologies MSM"

Sorry, we don't patch the usb.ids file, we take it 'as is' from upstream. 
If the vendor for the USB id is wrong you need to contact the upstream provider of usb.ids [1] and have him change it.

What's more likely to happen is that you need to add all the ZTE sub-ids to the upstream database similar to p.e. https://usb-ids.gowdy.us/read/UD/19d2/0007

Please clear the NEEDINFO flag from this bugreport when that is done and I'll then prepare an update with the new IDs.

Comment 3 Stephen J. Gowdy 2011-11-04 07:05:19 UTC
The vendor name changed in the usb.ids file at the end of September. Perhaps you need a newer version in Fedora?
