On my old system I had the new PLCBUS driver working perfectly, I don´t remember wich snapshot I installed it from, but everything worked fine.
Now I have a new server that I have installed LMCE 810 on, but PLCBUS doesn´t work. I have tried numerous different snapshots to install from, but my PLCBUS1141 isn´t recognized by the pnp scripts. As I only have a 3G internet connection with a 10GB/month cap, I can´t download the most recent snapshot every now and then to try them out.
However, I discovered one thing. When I make an install from the most recent snapshot I´ve got (from mid june 2011) and take a closer look at the device template for PLCBUS, I see that the field "Vendor model ID" is left blank. Once I discovered that I fired up my old system to look att the working install, and I found that the model ID should be "067b2303".
I put "067b2303" into the model ID on my fresh install and voilá, pnp scripts finds the PLC1141 without problems, and installs the needed software.
But there is still something missing. After the successful install of the PLCBUS device, it sets the "COM port on PC" to "/dev/ttyUSB0". This config gives the following log at startup:

I remember that when the PLCBUS driver worked fine (my old system is dead, the drive gave up), the setting for "COM port on PC" was left unmodified or in "-Please select-" state. When I change that setting to -Please select- again, the setting is changed back to /dev/ttyUSB0 by itself when I reload the router.
Anyone who have a clue of whats wrong here?
