During odd weeks, the "we need userspace crap like usb_modeswitch to make the device useful" approach is chosen.
No, the kernel developers responsible for this driver, and the usb-storage driver have a very clear approach, that does not change per-week. It is: Existing kernel quirks to automatically handle these types of devices will be left alone in the kernel. Any new tweaks like this, that can be done in userspace, should be done in userspace.
The "usb-modeswitch" program is the recommended way to resolve this, and is part of the default udev rules, so perhaps you just need to add your device id to it.
These are the logs from when the device was plugged and when dialing the modem through KnetworkManager: After "zypper dup" this afternoon and these packages installed automatically : usb_modeswitch-data-1.1.2-1.1.noarch usb_modeswitch-1.1.2-1.1.x86_64 1. /var/log/messages: http://andi.opensuse-id.org/uploads/VarLogMessages-zte-113m7 2. /var/log/NetworkManager: http://andi.opensuse-id.org/uploads/VarLogNetworkManager-zte-113m7 It needs then no more manually running 'usb_modeswitch' (like on openSUSE 11.2) on console neither mounting-unmounting the device ( on openSUSE 11.3 Milestone #6 or earlier). Great job!
