Description of problem:
I had an 8.0 box running the updated kernel (2.4.18-18.8.0) and my sony digital
camera worked beautifully with USB. It used to show up as /dev/sda, and I could
access /dev/sda1 as the memory stick. I decided to uprgade to the beta and my
camera is no longer detected, there are no messages in dmesg to state why
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try using a digital camera with usb mass storage
Actual Results: The device is not detected with 2.4.20-2 as shipped with phoebe.
Expected Results: As per 2.4.18
I installed the 2.4.18-18.8.0 kernel from rpm and booted from it and it works again.
Does this work better with the kernel from rawhide?
I am running kernel-2.4.20-2.21 and usb mass storage works fine.
The bad news is that Phoebe went out with a completely broken USB.
Anything that is connected on the fly is not hot-plugged.
The good news is that it was only a beta, and we actually fixed it.
Should work in the next beta or -RC.
Does the Phoebe2 (beta4) work?
Is there a new beta ?
It is still in the "phoebe" directory. We call it "Phoebe 2".
From my P.O.V., the main difference is working USB. :-)
At ftp.redhat.com ?
what date was the new beta released and what date are there ISO images ?
I used the kernel from that newer beta (2.4.20-2.21) and USB works perfectly
with my camera.
Off topic : When is 8.1 slated for release ?
We never announce releases as a matter of policy.
