VirtualBox

Ticket #6822 (closed defect: fixed)

Opened 4 years ago

Last modified 3 years ago

rdesktop-vrdp accesses USB devices via only /proc/bus/usb, and there is no /proc/bus/usb in new linux builds.

Reported by: hercules Owned by:

Version: VirtualBox 3.2.6 Keywords: usbfs /proc/bus/usb usb

Host type: other

Description

I currently use ubuntu 10.04 lucid lynx 64bit as VRDP client. I can't mount /proc/bus/usb as a usb filesystem because there is no mount.usbfs executable as there is mount.ntfs for NTFS. Plus, I can't make a directory /proc/bus/usb even with root previlege. It means rdesktop-vrdp can't redirect a usb device to a remote guest. Somebody has to fix rdesktop-vrdp so that it find USB devices in the proper place.
