Hi devs.
I'm using an USB HSDPA modem in Ubuntu Jaunty, and I had to use the
usb_modeswitch program to make it work.
my modem howto (zte mf 626): http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1147685
Recently I've noticed that there is a package in universe called
udev-extras which contains some hal quirks for various hardware, and
also contains some utility called modem-modeswitch.
Is this tool the same as usb_modeswitch? If not, could it be merged to
udev-extras or vice-versa? Or could it be at least included in Ubuntu?
