that the drivers aren't working properly.
When I plug the device in I see the following in dmesg:-
[ 2998.909856] usb 1-1.5: new full-speed USB device number 13 using dwc_otg
[ 2999.012599] usb 1-1.5: New USB device found, idVendor=067b, idProduct=2303
[ 2999.012644] usb 1-1.5: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=0
[ 2999.012666] usb 1-1.5: Product: USB-Serial Controller
[ 2999.012686] usb 1-1.5: Manufacturer: Prolific Technology Inc.
... but I should see something like:-
[85418.604327] usb 7-2: new full-speed USB device number 2 using uhci_hcd
[85419.040763] USB Serial support registered for pl2303
[85419.040824] pl2303 7-2:1.0: pl2303 converter detected
[85419.052517] usb 7-2: pl2303 converter now attached to ttyUSB0
[85419.052552] usbcore: registered new interface driver pl2303
[85419.052556] pl2303: Prolific PL2303 USB to serial adaptor driver
This is in Rasbian 7/Wheezy. I'm pretty sure the device *used* to
work but I've not used it for a while and I just did an 'apt-get
update; apt-get upgrade' and I'm wondering if something has got broken.
Any/all help very welcome.
