Bug#262638: ethdetect: Please add manual support for Pegasus USB Ethernet adapters

Package: ethdetect
Version: 1.00
Severity: wishlist


Given the lateness of this request, this is the least intrusive way of
getting USB Ethernet adapter support into d-i...

Could you please add the following line to the devnames file that winds
up as /etc/network/devnames.gz:

pegasus:Pegasus chipset based USB Ethernet adapters

In the longer term, it'd be nice if ethdetect can detect this
automatically. It seems a "modinfo pegasus" on a box running a 2.6
kernel spits out all the associated vendor/product ID's that the pegasus
driver recognises if you need this information.

I haven't wrapped my head around how the current ethernet driver
detection works, so I'm not sure what's required.



(Cursing himself for not testing this sooner)
