Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: linux-image

The module garmin_gps.ko incorrectly assumes you're using usbfs.  I
found some other posts online confirming this.

Check out:




The posted work-around of simply mounting usbfs works, but isn't
optimal.  As a side note, having this module blacklisted is pretty
confusing for people upgrading from Feisty or Gutsy and then all of the
sudden their GPS stops working...

FYI - Ubuntu 8.04
