Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 88050
Devlabel locks machine hard.
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:52:46 EDT
Description of problem:
I was trying to use devlabel to make a link for my Sony Clie. I used "devlabel
-s /dev/pilot -d /dev/ttyUSB0". Locked the machine hard.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
devlabel -s /dev/pilot -d /dev/ttyUSB0
Steps to Reproduce:
1. devlabel -s /dev/pilot -d /dev/ttyUSB0
Machine's locked hard. Stack trace printed to console.
I don't know. Never got devlabel working.
Please post said stack trace.
Created attachment 90918 [details]
Attached is the stack trace. (Is there any easier way to get the trace beyond
connecting a serial console and redirecting kern.* to /dev/ttyS0?)
thanks for the trace.
question: do you have a usb-storage device in use?
If so, I've fixed a bug in that last week which mostly matches with your backtrace
never mind; from looking at the USB serial code it looks like it has the same bug ;(
Yes, it's a usb-serial bug. I'll look into fixing this.
However, devlabel isn't for usb-serial devices, it will not work with them.
devlabel is only for usb-storage devices.
Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem
The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases,
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
