Re: USB diskonkey lost with kernel 2.6.6+?



Does anyone know of a work-around to the DiskOnKey loss with the latest
kernel update?  The original message I found is copied below for
reference, but here's the problem in a nutshell:

* Just upgraded to kernel 2.6.8-1.521
* Prior to the upgrade USB DiskOnKey worked fine.
* After upgrade it won't mount.  It doesn't even show up as a mounting
option when plugged in (either when plugged in prior to boot or
afterward).  The Hardware Browser doesn't show the drive when plugged
in.  The drive effectively does not exist, even when plugged in.

I poked around and found...

...in /var/log/messages

...using /sbin/lsusb

...but using /sbin/lsusb -v -d 08ec:0010 I get nothing returned.

...using rpm -qa|grep hotplug

...using /sbin/lsmod | grep usb_storage

...in /etc/sysconfig/hwconf there was no mention of the attached drive.

Based all on this information, I think it is similar to the problem
described below, but I couldn't find any follow up that detailed a work
around.  Anyone have an idea of what I could do to get the keydrive
working again?

Thanks for your replies guys.

I don't think it is the Bugzilla issue, I've tried the fix but it
doesn't work for me.

As I said the key drive seems fine (still works with Windows) and I was
using the exact same drive fine with FC2 (save having to rmmod
usb_storage after use). I'm sure the only change I've made to it not
working is the kernel update. I'll dig into usb-storage source and try
to get a handle on what it doesn't like.

        Hi,
        
        I used to use my USB key with FC2. I'd plug it in and could use
        it at /mnt/diskonkey.
        
        Unfortunately it no longer works. I think it stopped working
        when I updated my kernel. I'm now on 2.6.8-1.251 (from the
        Fedora updates folder) and when I check /var/log/messages it
        shows:

        registered.
        
        Is there a known issue here? Has the later kernel broken this?
        Is there a workaround?
        
        Thanks in advance for any help,
        
        Leon...
