Description Akkana Peck 2008-02-26 17:15:28 UTC
Latest working kernel version: 2.6.23.12
Earliest failing kernel version: 2.6.24-rc5
Distribution: Ubuntu gutsy
Hardware Environment: AMD 64 desktop or Sony Vaio SR71 laptop
Software Environment: pilot-link
Problem Description:

As of 2.6.24, I can no longer sync my Treo 90 (PalmOS PDA using the visor driver).
It works in 2.6.23.12, but failed starting with 2.6.24-rc5 and still fails in 2.6.24.3. (It also leaves the Treo in an unstable state requiring a reset, but that's probably a Treo problem.)

/var/log/messages from an attempt at connecting:
Feb 26 16:50:36 clavius kernel: [  111.932644] usb 1-2.3: new full speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 4
Feb 26 16:50:36 clavius kernel: [  112.041076] usb 1-2.3: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
Feb 26 16:50:37 clavius kernel: [  112.041618] visor: probe of 1-2.3:1.0 failed with error -5
Feb 26 16:50:55 clavius kernel: [  130.875451] usb 1-2.3: USB disconnect, address 4

visor is built in to the kernel, not loaded as a module, if that matters.

Steps to reproduce:
Connect visor cable to host USB.
Press hotsync button.
On host, type: pilot-xfer -l
Observe that nothing happens.

The only change to visor between 2.6.23 and 2.6.24 was "USB: visor: termios
bits".  Please apply the below revert patch to 2.6.24.x and let us know if
that fixes it?

Probably it won't, and we broke something in USB core :(

Thanks.

    USB: visor: termios bits
    
    Visor has a huge complex routine which displays termios bits for debug
    but doesn't do anything. Get the correct behaviour by removing it all

Alas, no, the patch doesn't fix it.

I tried 2.6.25-rc3 too -- fails with the same error as .24.3.

Comment 4 Neil Horman 2008-03-13 13:47:27 UTC
I think I'm seeing the same thing.  Somewhere right before 2.6.24 released  I stopped being able to sync my treo 750p.  In trying to track it down I started watching udev events when I plugged in the device.  I noticed that I was getting all the usual add event for the generic usb endpoints that I would expect, but I never saw a add event for /dev/ttyUSB<n> (which I did on sufficiently old kernels), so my udev rules never match and I never get a device created that kpilot can communicate with.  I'm not well versed enough in the usb code (or perhaps this is part of sysfs) to know where or by what mechanism those events are generated, but my guess is wherever happens is where the bug was introduced.

Same here.

Comment 6 Thomas Constans 2008-04-03 05:06:37 UTC
I also experience this problem:

kernel is stock 2.6.24 from Debian Sid

palm i a Garmin ique3600

i use to be able to sync with kernel 2.6.18 from debian stable.

i get the following syslog when pushing the hotsync button:

Apr  3 12:32:13 workine kernel: usb 1-2: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice


i have to manually load visor module to get the device recgnized:

Comment 7 Akkana Peck 2008-04-30 16:32:37 UTC
Good news: this problem appears to be fixed in 2.6.25. Here's hoping it works for everyone else as well.
Comment 8 Thomas Constans 2008-05-01 03:31:25 UTC
I confirm this,

It now works with stock 2.6.25 debian kernel.

I still have to manually load visor module to get my device files.

And i now have problems with gnome-pilot, but this is an other story...

Comment 9 Neil Horman 2008-05-01 04:31:25 UTC
ACK, I'm hapily syncing my treo.  This can be closed, thanks all!
