I'm running Fedora 24 fully updated.
I have a USB device that I want to connect to my computer.
When I connect it,
lsusb does not show that it is connected,
but lshw does show it
and says that the rtsx_usb driver is attached to it.
The question is, Why did lsusb not show the device?
The man page for lsusb shows a file of USB devices
A list of all known USB ID's (vendors, products, classes,
subclasses and protocols).
Perhaps, your device is not yet in that file, and so isn't recognized?
And, is there a way that I can specify that the usbhid driver should
be used instead of the rtsx_usb driver?
I've never done this, so can't help. What about putting a blacklist
file in /etc/modprobe.d for the rtsx_usb driver? If the kernel then
doesn't automatically fall back to usbhid, you can modprobe it after
start, and it should pick up your device.
