Hi All,

Still not got to the bottom of this one ;

My Blackberry mobile phone refuses to charge from USB
when logged into FreeBSD.

dmesg -a shows;

ugen1: Research In Motion Blackberry Device etc

usbdevs -v shows ;

Controller /dev/usb1:
addr 1: full speed, self powered, config 1, UHCI root hub(0x0000), VIA(0x0000)
rev 1.00
port1 powered
port2 addr 2: full speed, power 100ma, config 1, blackberry Device(0x0000)
Research In Motion(0x0fca), rev 1.04

Perhaps 100ma isnt enough for charging ?

Any ideas ?

Thanks !
