Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 806595
usbview is not able to work without /proc/bus/usb/devices
Last modified: 2012-06-25 20:48:05 EDT
Description of problem:
I'm trying to run usbview in F17, but it fails because of missing /proc/bus/usb/devices.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
"Can not open the file /proc/bus/usb/devices
Verify that you have USB compiled into your kernel, have USB core modules, and have the usbdevfs filesystem mounted."
I tried to run the "Configure dialog" in usbview by using /sys/bus/usb/devices instead of /proc/bus/usb/devices, but then usbview hangs up in the configure dialog.
I confirm bug.
Need repare program or remove it from repositories.
This has been annoying me for a while too, so I've decided it is time to step in and fix this, expect an updated package fixing this soon.
While at it I've also ported usbview to gtk3 :)
Update is on its way now.
usbview-1.1-8.fc17 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 17.
