Determining USB modules (ohci vs. uhci)


Alright, here is my question:

Is there an easy way of determining which USB module to use (ohci or uhci) from dmesg (or anywhere for that matter) that could easily be added to a script?

I have tried a number of tricks (such as dmesg|grep Intel, dmesg|grep VIA, cat /proc/bus/usb...) but they seem to be ineffective compared to just loading both modules and checking to see which one gets an error message. The reason I am doing this is because it needs to be done on a number of machines remotely.

Thanks for help in advance!

Thanks! I also found out that grep -i usb /proc/pci also works as well. Thanks again!

There is also lsusb. Both lspci and lsusb actually work by reading /proc. They just print the info out in human friendly format. Glad to have helped.
