Description Need Real Name 2003-04-04 13:03:12 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.3) Gecko/20030403

Description of problem:
HotSync of Sony CLIE used to cause the "visor" kernel module to automatically
load.  After "upgrading" to RH9, a HotSync attempt now produces the following in
the messages log:

kernel: usb.c: USB device 2 (vend/prod 0x54c/0x66) is not claimed by any active
driver.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
hotplug-2002_04_01-17

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install RH9
2.Connect Sony CLIE USB cable and choose HotSync in PalmOS
3.Notice in the messages log that RH9 failed to support the USB
manufactor/vendor code for auto-loading the "visor" 
    

Actual Results:  kernel: usb.c: USB device 2 (vend/prod 0x54c/0x66) is not
claimed by any active driver.

Expected Results:  Expected 0x54c/0x66 to auto-load usbserial & visor kernel modules
Like RH8 does:
  /etc/hotplug/usb.agent: Setup visor for USB product 54c/66/100

Additional info:

jpilot v0.99.5 fixes some bugs which occationally cause databook entries to be
lost.  So, of course RH9 continues to distribute...
   jpilot 0.99.2 with a known databook data lost issue

but has a patch for...
   the configure and Makefile which doesn't correct the databook issue at all

NICE!  Maybe the hotplug issue is a feature instead of a bug to at least
preserve the integraty of the databook... at least until the batteries give out.

Please connect Clie, then copy output of dmesg, /var/log/messages,
/proc/bus/usb/devices, and attach them to the bug.
PLEASE DO NOT DROP THEM INTO THE COMENTS BOX.

Comment 7 Need Real Name 2003-04-07 11:36:11 EDT
The first messages & devices files are when the CLIE HotSync application is
running which under RH8 causes usbserial & visor kernel modules to automatically
load.  Under RH9, only if the modules are manually loaded does hotsync'ing work.

The problem also effects accessing the CLIE Memory Stick.  The second messages &
devices file pair are when the CLIE MS-Import application is running which under
RH8 causes usb-storage module to automatically load.  Again, under RH9 if the
module is manually loaded then the memory stick can be mounted as expected.

Nevermind.  /proc/sys/kernel/hotplug was set to /bin/true
Fix was:
  echo "/sbin/hotplug" > /proc/sys/kernel/hotplug

I'm still trying to figure out what changed the status since this isn't in my
/etc/sysctl.conf
