Re: RPI3 USB Hardware Bug?
Posted: Fri Jun 22, 2018 2:45 pm
We do not guarantee any particular third party USB device will work, mainly because we don't design them or write the drivers for them so will probably not be able to fix them anyway. We have plenty of our own issues to deal with so why should we fix other people defective software before fixing our own*?! Have you reported this issue to the actual maintainers of the Linux driver, i.e. the people who actually wrote the software in the first place?user12345 wrote: ↑Fri Jun 22, 2018 2:35 pmI reported the Bug in March 2018, the Bug exists at least since RPI3 exists(tryed old Kernels).jamesh wrote: ↑Fri Jun 15, 2018 7:45 amIf we didn't care we wouldn't have spent the last week debugging odd ethernet issues on the Pi3b+, or investigating a Wifi bug, or any other of the myriad things we do every day to make the product work better. In fact, I think you would be hard pressed to find a more dedicated team. Just because your very specific issue has not yet been solved, does not mean we are all sitting back doing nothing. It just means, in our list of stuff that needs fixing, its not very high on the list. It's not even our HW or driver!
RPI2/3 is advertised to support Wifi sticks and special to support MY wifi sticks:
It doesnt help me much if you fix new Hardware while old is still broken.
The elinux website is nothing to do with us btw. We don't moderate content on it, or even read it.
* We sometimes will do so if it of benefit to our user base, but it's very rare and would require a large number of people to be having an issue for it to be more important than, for example, fixing network issues in the onboard Wifi, when we sell 5M of those a year.
