Trouble with libmtp connecting to Creative Zen Vision:M on OpenSUSE 10.3


I've tried plugging in my Creative Zen Vision:M into my OpenSUSE 10.3 computer several times, and every time I do, the zen freezes up... Gnomad2 (2.9.1) does not detect it, and the results from typing "mtp-detect" at a terminal are:

Quote:
libmtp version: 0.2.1

Attempting to connect device(s)
usb_claim_interface(): No such file or directory
LIBMTP PANIC: Unable to initialize device 1
LIBMTP PANIC: configure_usb_devices() error code: 7 on line 1893
Detect: There has been an error connecting. Exiting
My kernel is 2.6.22.17-0.1-default and in YaST, I have libmtp, libmtp6, libmtp7, libmtp-devel, and libmtp-tools all installed.

The results of lsusb are:

Quote:
Bus 002 Device 012: ID 041e:4151 Creative Technology, Ltd
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 046d:c50e Logitech, Inc. MX-1000 Cordless Mouse Receiver
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
So it looks like it detects the device, but libmtp fails.

Any ideas of how I might get this fixed?

Hi K3V!N, Welcome to lq. Do you have libnjb (required for Gnomad2)?
Good luck. ;-)

Could be permissions, any luck with the device as root or su?
Good luck. ;-)

Nope, that's not it, it gives the same error even as root.

I checked it out, and I don't think it's the same problem, because it doesn't even connect the mp3 player when I am root... I did a tail -f /var/log/messages, and this is what I got after plugging in the device, and then unplugging it...

I tried editing /etc/udev/rules.d/50-udev-default.rules to give MODE=666 to the relevant line, but to no avail. When I run gnomad2 in the console the results for the regular user and root are the same:

Quote:
Failed to open connection to D-BUS SESSION bus
LIBMTP_Get_First_Device: No Devices Attached
PDE device NULL.

Thank you for the help so far.

Read it to the end, it appears there is an obscure kernel option that needs to be enabled. Last two posts, CONFIG_USB_DEVICE_CLASS IIRC.
Good luck. ;-)
