I've got a pretty annoying issue, I've got a usb key (Apacer 128mb) two redhat 9 pc's (Celeron 2gb 512mb ram) anyways the usb key works on the onboard ports but the front ports on the case are a different story.. they used to work but with out changing anything (Any config or anything) they fail.
With out the front ports plugged in /proc/interrupts looks like this:
0: 26576 XT-PIC timer
1: 639 XT-PIC keyboard
2: 0 XT-PIC cascade
4: 3 XT-PIC serial
5: 0 XT-PIC ehci-hcd
8: 1 XT-PIC rtc
10: 39 XT-PIC serial
11: 31 XT-PIC eth0
12: 7691 XT-PIC PS/2 Mouse
14: 13148 XT-PIC ide0
15: 3983 XT-PIC ide1
I've tried with no acpi and everything but as soon as i insert the device (even a usb mouse brings the same error:
hub.c: new USB device 00:03.3-3, assigned address 2
usb.c: USB device not accepting new address=2 (error=-71)
If i plug the device in the back ports i get this in dmesg:
hub.c: new USB device 00:03.3-4, assigned address 15
usb.c: USB device 15 (vend/prod 0x1005/0xb113) is not claimed by any active driver.
