So I am using Ubuntu and trying to use some hardware which I had some problems with before.
The problem before was that the company who made my hardware sold their internal parts to another company who made some different hardware with the same ID. Someone kindly made a driver for it which came with Ubuntu, but stopped the driver for my device from working. On my last system I just tracked down the kernel module and disabled it.
I am getting the same message as on my previous machine:
Could not claim device (Vid: 0x2457, Pid: 0x1002, iface: 0)
but plugging in the device does not seem to create an entry in /dev like before. How can I find what is claiming my device? I assume that the dmesg:
usb 4-1: new full speed USB device using ohci_hcd and address 16
is just saying that it is being detected and it is not ohci that is blocking my access.
