udev rule for hid2hci doesn't work with kernel 3.6
Last modified: 2013-02-05 12:04:23 EST
Since kernel 3.6 the udev rule for hid2hci doesn't work anymore. At least for devices from Logitech the name of the subsystem has to be changed from usb to usbmisc. So in the file /lib/udev/rules.d/97-bluetooth-hid2hci.rules from bluez-hid2hci(-4.99-2.fc17.x86_64) the following has to be changed:
- SUBSYSTEM!="usb", GOTO="hid2hci_end"
+ SUBSYSTEM!="usbmisc", GOTO="hid2hci_end"
I don't know if that is needed for the Dell devices too.
The reason is the following commit in the mainline kernel:
(USB: rename the usb misc class from "usb" to "usbmisc")
in my proposal above should match the subsystem usb too, if that hasn't changed for Dell devices, so using "usb*" might be the better solution. It works here too using a dongle from Logitech.
Btw., using "usb*" instead of "usbmisc" would work with kernels < 3.6 too, so it looks like the right choice.
