  1. Bug#455899: damned ADMtek junk


    Sorry for the delay in repliing, but I was expecting a proper solution could
    be found. Right now I find the situation hopeless.

    In case it helps others, this is the script I use to work around it. It's
    a really nasty hack, but works ~90% of the time, and with this I only need
    to manually attend the device once a day or so.

    rmh@nslu:~$ tail -n 3 /etc/rc.local
    sh -c "while sleep 10 ; do while ping -c 1 192.168.1.1 >/dev/null ; do sleep 10 ; done ; rmmod pegasus ; /root/pegasus_hack ; done" &

    exit 0

    rmh@nslu:~$ cat /root/pegasus_hack
    #!/bin/sh -e
    usbid=`lsusb | grep -v "ID \(05e3:0702\|0000:0000\)" | sed -e "s/^Bus [0-9]* Device [0-9]*: ID \([^ ]*\) .*/\1/g"`
    if [ "$usbid" = "" ] ; then
    usbid=0000:0000
    fi
    exec modprobe pegasus devid=Crap:$usbid:0


    Not sure how you feel about closing this bug. Perhaps it'd be a good idea
    to document it or leave it open + wontfix or similar, so that others can
    avoid (some of) the hassle.

    Sorry, I got rid of that device a while ago. Anyway, my impression is that
    this is a bug in the firmware, not in Linux. Maybe it would be possible to
    work around it in Linux, but it'd be extremely difficult without at least
    knowing what's causing the firmware to hang.
