viking777 Posted September 7, 2008 Report Share Posted September 7, 2008 Well I knew it was too good to last. After my euphoria at finding a solution to my ZTE modem problem I now find out the downside. The line in the script RUN+="/sbin/rmmod usb_storage" is doing what you might expect, it is removing the usb_storage module completely meaning I can no longer communicate with any USB device such as my external hard drive. So I now have to choose between having a working modem or a working external drive, and if I want the latter I have to delete the udev rule and reboot - not exactly convenient. I have tried modprobe usb_storage but that doesn't restore it, not sure why. Is there anyone out there with an idea as to how I can make this a little easier to deal with? I basically need a command that will replace the usb_storage module when I want to use it without a reboot. Of maybe you can think of another workround?
