Hi people, i got today, for the first time, some of the famous usb modem
like huawei ones (and not only). i got them coz i am supposed to write
something about linux compatibility. on suse 11.2 i'm quite happy, after
upgrade usb_modeswitch (from 0.9.6 into OSS to 1.1.2) to latest version
(into hardware OBS repo) i had ALL of them working just plug and play.

i thought that with suse 11.3 it would be even easier... you know, more
recent kernel, more recent packages, more recent everything... instead...

well instead, not only none of the worked, but looks their support has
been even dropped... usb_modeswitch is not even into factory repo
(why???) so...


the question is... any reason to drop that important hardware support?
someone just forgot to submit requestes or what else?
(i am ready to take care of that package and others needed to provide
that support on suse 11.3, IMHO it's a MUST HAVE)

Regards
Andrea
