eeePC model: 1000
Aurora version: NBR 3.0.1
I recently bought a TMobile USB modem stick which turns out to be a ZTE MF626 device.
To my pleasant surprise I found that this device was recognised by my eeepc 1000 running eeebuntu NBR 3.0.1 - though I'm not sure if this was before I installed udev-extras or not. The device is initially recognised as a USB mass storage device, but once the disk is manually umounted it reappears as a modem device, usually assigning /dev/ttyUSB2 as the modem - though sometimes it gets assigned to /dev/ttyUSB1 or 3 to just confuse my dialup settings, even though I have no other USB devices plugged in! - and works well.
So, I thought I'd try the stick in my other laptop (a Toshiba) which runs Ubuntu jaunty. However, even though it goes through the motions of recognising it as a USB storage device it decides not to mount it, simply saying usb-storage: device ignored. At this point I have nothing to umount on my laptop, unlike my netbook, so I can't use it.
Given that eeebuntu 3.0.1 is derived from jaunty I found it quite surprising that it didn't work on a stock jaunty install (even after installing udev-extras) and would really like to know why that is?
So my question is, did the eeebuntu developers modify the Hal or udev rules from the stock ubuntu ones, and if so what changes were made?
