Re: Garmin GPS on USB port
Thanks all for your help.
First, my digital camera works like a charm.
When I plug my GPS I have only those two lines in /var/log/syslog:
Aug 30 17:23:15 zherc kernel: usb 1-2: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 4
Aug 30 17:23:15 zherc kernel: usb 1-2: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
Also, the module ehci_hcd is already loaded so no need to modprobe it.
The output of lsusb (after the GPS has been plugged) is the following:
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 046d:c506 Logitech, Inc. MX-700 Cordless Mouse Receiver
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 4348:5523
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
By the way, this is a Garmin GPS III+ if it could help.
I use a usb-to-serial adapter. Does it need a driver or something?

Here is what syslog shows when I plug in my usb GPS puck.
Aug 30 10:27:15 buddy kernel: usb 1-5.4: new full speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 4
Aug 30 10:27:15 buddy kernel: usb 1-5.4: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
Aug 30 10:27:15 buddy kernel: pl2303 1-5.4:1.0: pl2303 converter detected
Aug 30 10:27:15 buddy kernel: usb 1-5.4: pl2303 converter now attached to ttyUSB0
Try doing a modprobe ehci_hcd _before_ you plug the Garmin in.
lsusb here shows
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 067b:2303 Prolific Technology, Inc. PL2303
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 05e3:0702 Genesys Logic, Inc. USB
