Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 859720
Word of advice for including usb_modeswitch in RHEL 6.4
Last modified: 2015-09-16 12:46:31 EDT
People from CentOS asked me to transmit this bug report to RHEL team as well.
Description of problem:
After failing to use my 3G modem on CentOS 6.3 due to switching problems I contacted Josua Dietze (usb_modeswitch developer). He found out that the problem resides on el6 implementation of his package.
There are two corrections to make.
1) The script "/lib/udev/usb_modeswitch" must be moved and renamed to "/usr/sbin/usb_modeswitch_dispatcher"
2) His original "usb_modeswitch.sh" script is missing. A copy should be installed in "/lib/udev/", renamed as "usb_modeswitch".
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Connect a 3G modem with a cdrom like partition inside
Modem does not switch to proper mode
Please contact usb_modeswitch developer for further info if you wish.
This has to do nothing with usbutils and it seems to me that we don't have usb_modeswitch package in rhel6.
I did not know to whom should I submit the report, so I ended up posting it to you. Could you please transmit it to the right person? Anyway, I guess it will not matter if you are not going to integrate usb_modeswitch into rhel 6.
