With SUSE-11.2/kernel 2.6.31, there seems to be no possiblity to have access to an USB mass storage device attached to the host from an guest OS in vmware 6.5. With the 2.6.25 kernel of SUSE-11.0 it used to work.
With the 2.6.27 kernel of 11.1 , the mass storage driver changed behaviour and grabs the mass storage device again after being thrown out by vmware. Vmware then fails to access the device. Workaround was to unload the USB mass storage drivermodule.
But now with with 11.2 and 2.6.31, the USB mass storage driver is no longer compiled as module. So the option to unload the module is gone, too. Is there any workaround for that problem other than recompiling the kernel with modular usb-storage ?
Poke vmware to fix their bug? They know all about this, unloading the module is _NOT_ the correct way to handle this type of interaction. thanks, greg k-h -- To unsubscribe, e-mail: email@example.com For additional commands, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
