Description redhat admin 2003-01-17 00:44:11 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2) Gecko/20021202

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):

How reproducible:

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

Additional info:

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?
Comment 2 Nathan G. Grennan 2003-01-18 09:44:15 EST
I am running kernel-2.4.20-2.21 and usb mass storage works fine.
Comment 3 Pete Zaitcev 2003-01-20 11:30:35 EST
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?
Comment 5 redhat admin 2003-02-05 22:58:28 EST
Is there a new beta ?
Comment 6 Pete Zaitcev 2003-02-06 01:13:19 EST
It is still in the "phoebe" directory. We call it "Phoebe 2".
From my P.O.V., the main difference is working USB. :-)
Comment 7 redhat admin 2003-02-06 20:10:48 EST
At ftp.redhat.com ?

what date was the new beta released and what date are there ISO images ? 
Comment 8 redhat admin 2003-02-16 21:31:14 EST
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 ?
Comment 9 Pete Zaitcev 2003-02-17 10:27:10 EST
We never announce releases as a matter of policy.
