Ticket #2850 (closed defect: fixed)
OS/2 guest USB stops working with VB > 2.0.4

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)
I have an OS/2 guest system using all the latest OS/2 drivers running on a Centos 5.2 32 bit Linux system. When running VirtualBox 2.0.4 everything works correctly and the guest can see the 2 USB external disks and the data on them. If I upgrade to 2.0.6 or 2.1.0 then I lose the 2 external USB disks from the guest machine.
On Centos 5.2, the usbfs file system is mounted from /etc/rc.sysinit at boot time and I have amended this script to contain the following lines
if [ ! -d /proc/bus/usb ]; then
modprobe usbcore >/dev/null 2>&1 && mount -n -t usbfs /proc/bus/usb /proc/bus/usb -o devgi
mount -n -t usbfs /proc/bus/usb /proc/bus/usb -o devgid=501,devmode=664
This works correctly as far as 2.0.4 but fails as soon as I upgrade to 2.0.6+. If I rpm -e the newer release and re-install 2.0.4 then everything works correctly again.
