Any changes made to u3g recently?



  • Does anyone know if any changes were made to the u3g drivers within the most recent snapshot of 2.0? Maybe something was done on FreeBSD8.1 itself? I have a USB/MC760 which I was able to get up and running a little over 2 weeks ago (http://forum.pfsense.org/index.php/topic,32781.0.html)

    Every since upgrading to yesterdays i386 snapshot and including today's, my 3g modem is unable to connect. See log below. I've removed and recreated the interface a couple of times with no luck. I did test the modem on my windows laptop to verify that it is still working, which it does. I may go back to an older snapshot but since i've been testing the IPv6 stuff, I want to stay with the latest snapshot if possible.

    What stand out is this: 'can't lock device cuaU0.0'

    Thanks as always!

  • You can rm -r /var/lock/* and it will start.



  • @ermal:

    You can rm -r /var/lock/* and it will start.

    Thanks for the quick reply. I don't have a /var/lock/ folder on my box. I created one to see if that would make a difference, it didn't.

    Anything else I could try?

    Edit: Thanks for pointing me into the right direction. Like I said, I didn't have a /var/lock/ folder but I found a /var/spool/lock/ folder. With-in that folder was a file named 'LCK..cuaU0.0' Deleted that file and now 3G is back into action!
