Question Problem with a USB device under 2.6.5 kernel


Am building my own LFS (Linux from Scratch) system, and have gotten to the point where it boots from my kernel (2.6.5 and I think I enabled all the appropriate USB stuff) and has networking support (as far as I can tell).

Unplugging and then plugging in my Linksys WUSB11 v2.8 wireless device gives the following message:

usb1-1:new full speed USB device using address 5
midi: probe of 1-1:1.0 failed with error -5

so it's possible I'm having a USB problem? Any idea what I might have misconfigured in my kernel or additional package I might need? I've built the Atmel drivers for the device, and can manually load them with Modprobe or insmod (at least they then show up in lsmod), but trying to run iwconfig wlan0 keeps coming back with a no such device error which is why I assume it's a USB rather than driver issue.

Thanks in advance,
Ewan

Have you mounted the USB filesystem with this line in /etc/fstab?
usbfs /proc/bus/usb usbfs defaults 0 0

If the device is a USB networking device, do I need to load the USB filesystem?

Still, probably something for me to try tonight if I don't get any other suggestions

Sorry, but that didn't seem to help. Any other ideas?

Looking at the config file for my kernel, here are a few entries that seemed applicable:

#ALSA USB devices
#
CONFIG_SND_USB_AUDIO=y

#USB Support
#
CONFIG_USB=y
#CONFIG_USB_DEBUG is not set

#Miscellaneous USB options
#
CONFIG_USB_DEVICEFS=y
#CONFIG_USB_BANDWIDTH is not set
#CONFIG_USB_DYNAMIC_MINORS is not set

#USB Host Controller Drivers
#
CONFIG_USB_EHCI_HCD=y
#CONFIG_USB_EHCI_SPLIT_ISO is not set
#CONFIG_USB_OHCI_HCD is not set
CONFIG_USB_VHCI_HCD=y

#USB Device Class drivers
#
CONFIG_USB_AUDIO=y
#CONFIG_USB_BLUETOOTH_TTY is not set
CONFIG_USB_MIDI=y
#CONFIG_USB_ACM is not set
CONFIG_USB_PRINTER=y
CONFIG_USB_STORAGE=y
#CONFIG_USB_STORAGE_DEBUG is not set
#CONFIG_USB_STORAGE_DATAFAB is not set
CONFIG_USB_STORAGE_FREECOM=y

#USB Network Adapters
#
CONFIG_USB_USBNET=y

then later again

#USB Network Adapters
#
CONFIG_USB_AX8817X=y

Any help would be appreciated...

Bueller? Anyone... ?

Does anyone have this device (Linksys WUSB11 V 2.8) running on a 2.6.x kernel of any distribution?

TIA,
Ewan
