ks959-sir dongle no longer works under 2.6.27 (REGRESSION)
|||Ubuntu EeePC Kernel||
This bug has been reported as #11795:
Apparently as a result the IrDA sub system does not function, not just for the ks959-sir.
I confirmed the problem with my ks959-sir USB IrDA stick for linux-image-
The mentioned workaround:
echo 9600 > /proc/sys/
makes it possible to use gnome-ppp again to dial in with my Nokia 5140i, although very slow.
It appears the bug has been sort of fixed in linux 2.28.4.
