I've installed ifp-line and libusb on a Slackware 9.0
system. When I connect my IFP-890 and issue a simple
command,
things work fine at first, but then I get the ifp:
battery error message on the second command:

bash-2.05b# ifp ls
d VOICE
d RECORD
d Some artist
d Another artist
bash-2.05b# ifp ls
ifp battery: Could not get battery status. ctl8 =
control: 50 3b 10 40 30 4c 01 40 .
Unable to connect to iFP.
You must run as root.

Note that (1) I am running as root, (2) the same thing
happens when I'm not running as root, and (3)
Everything worked perfectly on my other machine (which
is running slackware 9.1)

Versions

Linux: Slackware 9, kernel 2.4.20 (yeah, I know that
it's out of date, but I'm the only user and I trust
myself.)

ifp-line-0.2.4.4
libusb-0.1.8

    Yes, I have the exact same problem here with my IFP-795.
    Debian Testing Kernel 2.4.26-1-k7.
    The problem first occured when the .deb for ifp-line was
    upgraded to latest 0.2.4.4 version.
    Downgrading to previous Debian packaged version 0.2.4.1
    fixes the problem.

    I released ifp-line-0.2.4.5.
    This version is fixed "disconnect bug" on Linux.
    Please test it.
