>> E: Couldn't find package discover1-data
The discover-data source package no longer create the discover1-data
binary package, as its primary user discover1 has been dropped from
the archive as obsolete.
The scripts used to generate the discover1-data files from the
discover-data files still exist, thought, and I if discover-data is a
useful source of information for usb-discover, the scripts can be
reused to generate pci.lst if needed.
But given that the kernel module information in discover-data is no
longer being maintained (the lists from the kernel is better
maintained and udev handle kernel module loading better than
discover), I suspect it is better for usb-discover to use a different
source for its information.
