Description adrian.lawrence 2002-11-10 22:25:21 UTC

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.6 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20020913

Description of problem:
After applying latest updates including glibc-2.2.5-42, glibc-debug-2.2.5-42,
and friends, krb5-*--1.2.4 and nscd-2.2.5-42, hotplug
disconnects a usb device (scanner) incorrectly.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Switch on a usb scanner
2.Inspect /var/log/messages to see the disconnect. xsane, for example cannot
connect to the scanner. Hardly surprising :-)

Actual Results:  N/A

Expected Results:  n/a

Additional info:

Nov 10 16:09:30 conquest3 kernel: usb.c: deregistering driver usbscanner
Nov 10 16:09:54 conquest3 kernel: usb.c: USB disconnect on device 1
The spurious disconnect:

Nov 10 16:09:54 conquest3 /sbin/hotplug: arguments (usb) env (PWD=/etc/hotplug
DEVICE=/proc/bus/usb/001/001 ACTION=remove DEBUG=kernel OLDPWD=/
DEVFS=/proc/bus/usb TYPE=9/0/0 SHLVL=1 HOME=/ PATH=/bin:/sbin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin
PRODUCT=0/0/0 _=/usr/bin/env)
Nov 10 16:09:54 conquest3 /sbin/hotplug: invoke /etc/hotplug/usb.agent ()
Nov 10 16:09:54 conquest3 kernel: usb.c: USB bus 1 deregistered


Disable hotplug with
  echo /bin/true > /proc/sys/kernel/hotplug
and load modules manually with modprobe.
The scanner and xsane then work normally.

I doubt that this bug is in hotplug itself. Sorry, I don't have time to
investigate further. I will attach a fuller log.
