    umount/remove HID from mounting


    Hi all.

    I'm developing a device driver for my computer. Linux seems to think that the device is a HID, when actually its a special chip that's connected the the USB bus on my computer.

    Because my driver won't probe the device, as its already been registered as an (HID - usbhid) is there a way I can force linux not to touch/mount this device.

    Here's the device.
    Code:
    [61673] generic-usb 0003:1770:FF00.000A: hiddev0,hidraw3: USB HID v1.10 Device [YAMMA USB YAMMA USB] on usb-0000:00:1a.0-1.3/input0
    Thanks.

    Possibly

    Code:
    lsmod | grep usb
    to try and work out which module it is loading, then blacklist the "offending" module

    Code:
    sudo echo "blacklist badmodule" >> /etc/modprobe.d/50-blacklist.conf

    Its was.

    I couldn't remove the HID module, as doing so would disable my keyboard due to thats using HID.

    What I had to do is to write "0000:00:1a.0-1.3" (summat like that) to the HID module "unbind file". But then when I reinserted the device I had to do keep on doing this again.
