    Generic Driver


    Hi,

    i am wondering if linux loads a generic driver, if it cant find a PID/VID match for the device that has been connected. If this is the case, can you tell me what this might be.

    Thanks

    The question is too broad. What type of device you are talking about. Generally - no.

    When i connected a device which i am not sure is not available (it's an intel mote), it appears in lsusb with the right PID/VID and other details of the driver. Is there any other reason how this could be happening ?

    Still not sure what you mean. One thing is identifying the device by lsusb utility

    http://www.linux-usb.org/usb.ids

    Another thing is loading a driver for it - it's a kernel job.
