PostPosted: Mon Jun 29, 2015 9:19 am    Post subject: 3.18 kernel-branch, general question about upgrades. Reply with quote

I upgraded from 3.10 to longterm supported 3.18 kernel.

Suddenly the mouse did not work after i booted into my new kernel. and the culprit was kinda easily found and fixed.

I just had to add those new HOLTEK configs to my kernel.

Code:
localhost roman # grep HOLTEK /usr/src/linux/.config
CONFIG_HID_HOLTEK=y
CONFIG_HOLTEK_FF=y
localhost roman # lsusb|grep Holtek
Bus 006 Device 002: ID 04d9:a070 Holtek Semiconductor, Inc.


Question: Why does the mouse do not work with the generic driver when I do not have that HOLTEK stuff, lets call that specific device driver, installed? I assume the kernel filters for specific USB-Ids and than do not use the generic driver=?

Kinda annyoing because my old kernel had this holtek stuff not set and my mouse worked since ages.

Code:
localhost linux-3.10.79-gentoo # grep HOLTEK .config
# CONFIG_HID_HOLTEK is not set


and according to this, the holtek stuff is very long in the kernel branch.

Quote:
prompt: Holtek HID devices
type: tristate
depends on: CONFIG_USB_HID
defined in drivers/hid/Kconfig
found in Linux kernels: 3.6–3.19, 4.0–4.1, 4.1+HEAD
modules built: hid-holtekff


One of the reason why i prefer sticking to a longterm supported kernel branch. This change do not make any sense for myself. Just one piece of hardware which stops working.

I do not know if there are any magic things now enabled for my mouse now...

I doubt my second notebook with 4.0.5 gentoo sources has this holtek flag, i will check later.

my mouse mazer - l

[edit 2015-07-01]
second box has the holtek flag enabled. My mouse does not work with the generic mouse drivers as it used to. so holtek is needed and this is a mayor drawback in my eyes that hardare stops working from one kernel branch to the next because of specific drivers which do nothing as of now compared to the generic mouse driver.

I think more interesting is USB, as its USB mouse ...

It is just annoying that a new kernel branch enforced my mouse to stop functioning until i enable "holtek". I doubt i get any additional benefit with my type of mouse at all!
