Description John Heidemann 2011-09-26 11:47:59 UTC
Description of problem:
Plug in an ipad2 to the usb port.
Watch in sadness is it reports "not charging" because
Fedora's won't give the usb port enough power to charge.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I'm filing this against udev because the fix involves a udev rule
and it's not clear there's a generic "please support my hardware" component.
Please redirect.

How reproducible:
every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Plug in ipad2
2. ipad reports "not charging"
3. The birds: they are so angry, but then they just go black
as the ipad dies.
Actual results:
ipad won't charge

Expected results:
ipad charges

Additional info:
There is a fix at



where a small utility puts the usb port into high power,
and a udev rule triggers this automatically
(please note the ipad2 fix requiring SYSFS{idProduct}=="129f"

Does it make sense to add this fix to fedora?

not a udev bug... create the rpm "ipad_charge" and the udev rules there...

Comment 2 Peter Robinson 2011-09-26 15:07:51 UTC
I believe support for this is going to be in an upstream release soon.

Comment 3 Fedora End Of Life 2012-08-06 20:08:58 UTC
This message is a notice that Fedora 15 is now at end of life. Fedora 
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 15. It is 
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no 
longer maintained.  At this time, all open bugs with a Fedora 'version'
of '15' have been closed as WONTFIX.

(Please note: Our normal process is to give advanced warning of this 
occurring, but we forgot to do that. A thousand apologies.)

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, feel free to reopen 
this bug and simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we were unable to fix it before Fedora 15 reached end of life. If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged to click on 
"Clone This Bug" (top right of this page) and open it against that 
version of Fedora.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here:
