    device not found I have more info...


    First off thanks for check out this message. I hope someone here can help me because I'm out of ideas and want to dump windows (I have to keep it to print anything right now!)

    Forgive me if theres too much in this message, I'm not a newbie-newbie, but still new enough to be a newbie (Does that even make sense?)

    I installed fedora core R2 on a box, then later installed a printer. Initial setup was easy, but after reboot kudzu poped up and said there was a hardware change and wanted to remove the configuration for my printer. I told it to leave the configuration alone, but the printer stopped working, so I dug further...

    The printer is an HP PSC 2410.
    After running ptal-init setup (as root) it showed:
    Code:
    Starting the HP OfficeJet Linux driver.
        No hpoj devices have been configured.
        As root, run "/usr/sbin/ptal-init setup".
    Uninstalled all sane rpms, so I was only dealing w/ 1 aspect of the problem, instead of multiplying it by scanning.
    Uninstalled and reinstalled hpoj and hpijs.
    Ran ptal-init setup again, same result.
    checked /proc/bus/usb/devices and list shows 3 items and no printer:
    Code:
    # cat /proc/bus/usb/devices|grep S:
    S:  Manufacturer=Linux 2.6.6-1.435.2.3 ohci_hcd
    S:  Product=OHCI Host Controller
    S:  SerialNumber=0000:00:02.1
    
    S:  Manufacturer=Linux 2.6.6-1.435.2.3 ohci_hcd
    S:  Product=OHCI Host Controller
    S:  SerialNumber=0000:00:02.0
    
    S:  Manufacturer=Linux 2.6.6-1.435.2.3 ehci_hcd
    S:  Product=EHCI Host Controller
    S:  SerialNumber=0000:00:02.2
    I think I have the USB kernel mods in okay:
    Code:
    # lsmod |grep hci
    ohci_hcd               16016  0
    ehci_hcd               22916  0
    I also have devices in /dev:
    Code:
    # ls /dev/usb/lp*
    /dev/usb/lp0   /dev/usb/lp11  /dev/usb/lp14  /dev/usb/lp3  /dev/usb/lp6  /dev/usb/lp9
    /dev/usb/lp1   /dev/usb/lp12  /dev/usb/lp15  /dev/usb/lp4  /dev/usb/lp7
    /dev/usb/lp10  /dev/usb/lp13  /dev/usb/lp2   /dev/usb/lp5  /dev/usb/lp8
    And I checked /var/log/messages to find this regarding the printer:
    Code:
    # tail /var/log/messages
    Jul 21 11&#58;33&#58;51 rlgale ptal-mlcd&#58; SYSLOG at ExMgr.cpp&#58;652, dev=<mlc&#58;usb&#58;probe>, pid=2723, e=111, t=1090427631         ptal-mlcd successfully initialized.
    Jul 21 11&#58;33&#58;51 rlgale ptal-mlcd&#58; ERROR at ExMgr.cpp&#58;2525, dev=<mlc&#58;usb&#58;probe@/dev/usb/lp8>, pid=2723, e=19, t=1090427631         Couldn't find device!
    If anyone can help me or point me in the right direction, please do.. I really want to get rid of Windows, but I can't until I fix this!

    Thanks in advance!

    Just alittle bit closer - maybe someone can help me now..

    Ok - I've dug further into my system - knowing nothing shows in my /proc/bus/usb/devices about my printer.
    So I looked in dmesg and found this (filtered all the extra stuff, but can post the whole list if it helps):
    Code:
    # dmesg|grep usb
    usbcore&#58; registered new driver usbfs
    usbcore&#58; registered new driver hub
    usbcore&#58; registered new driver hiddev
    usbcore&#58; registered new driver usbhid
    drivers/usb/input/hid-core.c&#58; v2.0&#58;USB HID core driver
    &#91;<02216a08>&#93; &#40;usb_hcd_irq+0x0/0x4b&#41;
    usb 2-2&#58; new full speed USB device using address 2
    usb 2-2&#58; control timeout on ep0out
    Looks like the very last line here may explain the root of all my evil? But I do not know how to correct. I saw something someplace about a bug in a 2.6 kernel that makes this happen, and I am running a 2.6 kernel, but they also said it was fixed in a point release and my system is updated as of right now.

    Any ideas anyone?
