Description P Jones 2005-04-25 00:31:41 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.7) Gecko/20050416 Fedora/1.0.3-1.3.1 Firefox/1.0.3

Description of problem:
Kernel 2.6.11-1.14 seems to make hpoj unable to see my OfficeJet 7110 which I have connected by USB. Running ptal-init setup results in output that looks like this:

Probe for USB-connected devices ([y]/n)?  y
Probing "%004%001"...
    No device found.
Probing "%003%001"...
    No device found.
Probing "%002%001"...
    No device found.
Probing "%001%001"...
    No device found.

Things work as they are supposed to if I switch back to kernel 2.6.10-1.770.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot using kernel 2.6.10-1.770 or earlier.
2. Set up hpoj printer.
3. Reboot, select kernel 2.6.11-1.14.
4. hpoj printer is gone, ptal-init setup outputs as above.

An update has been released for Fedora Core 3 (kernel-2.6.12-1.1372_FC3) which
may contain a fix for your problem.   Please update to this new kernel, and
report whether or not it fixes your problem.

If you have updated to Fedora Core 4 since this bug was opened, and the problem
still occurs with the latest updates for that release, please change the version
field of this bug to 'fc4'.

Thank you.

Comment 2 P Jones 2005-07-19 23:30:08 UTC
I have moved on to FC4, and am no longer having the problem. In fact, the FC3
kernel that came after Kernel 2.6.11-1.14 fixed the problem for me, as I recall.
I've changed the status to RESOLVED CURRENTRELEASE.
