USB Serial Driver Isn't quite Working.
I am using the USB mass storage driver on a Maxtor external
drive which normally works well. I added a new Edgeport/8 serial
converter and plugged it in to the second slot of the USB port. The
documentation in /usr/src/linux/Documentation/usb-serial.txt says that
the generic serial driver supports the Edgeport/8 product.
When I plug it in, the following lines get added to syslog:
hub.c: USB new device connect on bus1/1, assigned device number 3
usb.c: USB device 3 (vend/prod 0x1608/0xf) is not claimed by any active driver.
Do I need to add any other modules to the kernel when
Disconnecting the Edgeport/8 produces:
usb.c: USB disconnect on device 3
The mass storage driver continues to work with the serial port
unit in or out. At least the new generic serial driver doesn't appear
to have done any harm.
