[Bug 888838] Re: Saitek Pedals not recognized at boot, work after unplugging and plugging back in


Pat Callahan, this bug was reported a while ago and there hasn't been
any activity in it recently. We were wondering if this is still an
issue? If so, could you please test for this with the latest development
release of Ubuntu? ISO images are available from
http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/daily-live/current/ .

If it remains an issue, could you please run the following command in
the development release from a Terminal
(Applications->Accessories->Terminal), as it will automatically gather
and attach updated debug information to this report:

apport-collect -p linux <replace-with-bug-number>

Also, could you please test the latest upstream kernel available (not the daily folder) following https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelMainlineBuilds ? It will allow additional upstream developers to examine the issue. Once you've tested the upstream kernel, please comment on which kernel version specifically you tested. If this bug is fixed in the mainline kernel, please add the following tags:

where VERSION-NUMBER is the version number of the kernel you tested. For example:

This can be done by clicking on the yellow circle with a black pencil icon next to the word Tags located at the bottom of the bug description. As well, please remove the tag:

If the mainline kernel does not fix this bug, please add the following tags:

As well, please remove the tag:

Once testing of the upstream kernel is complete, please mark this bug's
Status as Confirmed. Please let us know your results. Thank you for your

  Saitek Pedals not recognized at boot, work after unplugging and
  plugging back in

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  This report applies to Ubuntu 11.10.
  The bug exists under previous versions of linux.

  After a boot, Saitek pedals are not recognized.
  dmesg contains multiple attempts to read the device: 
  usb 5-2: device descriptor read/64, error -32

  If you unplug and re-plug the device, it works immediately.

  It can be reproduced at will by unloading and reloading the usb or
  usbhid driver.

  The current workaround is to unplug the Saitek pedals and plug them
  back in.

  For some reason the sequence of events when connecting is different
  from what happens when the driver loads. In that case, the device is
  recognized without problem.

  After Plugging in the device, it was working fine. [ 6918.310857]
  I then reset the hid driver by removing and inserting the driver. [ 7183.832022]
  Then the pedals device was no longer recognized, only the Yoke device, which is completely separate.

  So what is different between what the driver does on load, and what
  the driver does when a device is plugged in?
