Problem Description:

I have a USB printer (Samsung ML-2010) that, when I plug it in, shows up in
/proc/bus/usb/devices (and gets detected according to dmesg), but when I try to
access any device file related to it, I get "Error: no such device". (For
example, echo "blech" > /dev/usb/lp0.) Accordingly, the printer does not show up
in lsusb and CUPS also thinks that it's disconnected. The printer (and cable)
work fine on my IBM Thinkpad R52.

Just FYI, I've reproduced this without madwifi and the nvidia kernel module, in
case you were wondering.

Please compile your kernel with CONFIG_DEBUG_USB and provide the log.

Comment 4 Andreas Kloeckner 2007-06-24 23:33:12 UTC
Disabling CONFIG_USB_SUSPEND fixes this.

Comment 5 Greg Kroah-Hartman 2007-09-05 07:13:01 UTC
What is the device and vendor id for this printer?  Can you attach the output of /proc/bus/usb/devices so we can blacklist this printer?
Comment 6 Andreas Kloeckner 2007-09-05 09:52:44 UTC
Created attachment 12715 [details]
/proc/bus/usb/devices containing that printer's data
Comment 7 Andreas Kloeckner 2007-09-05 09:53:31 UTC
Here's the VID/PID:

Bus 002 Device 002: ID 04e8:326c Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd 
Comment 8 Adrian Bunk 2007-09-16 13:38:07 UTC
This should be fixed by commit f095137e799ddb6a7c2bf0e4c73cda193ab9df41.

Can you confirm it's fixed in 2.6.23-rc6?
