Alcatel Speedtouch ADSL modem and usbcore
Can anyone advise me on the usbcore?
I have been connecting and disconnecting my Alcatel Speedtouch 330 ADSL modem by using the commands:
When disconnecting using the stop command I have always received the following message:
"Shutting down ADSL connection: process in pidfile `/var/run/ppp0.p", shortly followed by "done".
However, since connecting an Epson 870 USB printer about a week ago I now receive the following message when disconnecting the modem:
"Shutting down ADSL connection: process in pidfile `/var/run/ppp0.pid 'usbcore:
Device or resource busy failed".
In spite of this, the modem appears to switch off correctly, ie the two green lights go out. Has anyone any idea why I have now started to receive these "failed" messages? I can only assume it is somehow connected to the fact that I have now added a USB printer to my computer. The strange thing is that I still get this "failed" message when I use the modem stop command whether the printer is physically connected or not. I only plug it in if I actually want to do some printing: not every time I use the computer.
I suppose this is not really a big problem as even though I get a "failed" message, the modem appears to be disconnecting properly, but I'm one of those people who finds error messages slightly irritating and likes to try and get rid of them !!
I am using SuSE 8.2 Personal.
