More specifically, I see from dmesg "umass1: at uhub1, port 1, addr 4 (disconnected)" (why that isn't also available on probe I don't know). How do I represent that in loader.conf? e.g. hints.umass.1.at="uhub1" doesn't exactly communicate what is needed, I also need the port number in there somehow, and "hint.umass.1.port" would seem to be reserved for the I/O address according to device.hints(5) FYI the usbconfig output is: ugen0.1: <EHCI root HUB Intel> at usbus0, cfg=0 md=HOST spd=HIGH (480Mbps) pwr=SAVE (0mA) ugen0.2: <product 0x07db vendor 0x8087> at usbus0, cfg=0 md=HOST spd=HIGH (480Mbps) pwr=SAVE (0mA) ugen0.3: <Ultra Fast Media Generic> at usbus0, cfg=0 md=HOST spd=HIGH (480Mbps) pwr=ON (96mA) ugen0.4: <ZTE Mobile Broadband Station ZTE,Incorporated> at usbus0, cfg=0 md=HOST spd=HIGH (480Mbps) pwr=ON (500mA) Thanks, Gary _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list https://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-usb To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-usb-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
