That's good news that it's fixed.

I'll have a look at the latest config file tonight when I'm in front of my Linux machine.

It's possible that something was changed in the kernel code (and not necessarily the config) that was causing it, so it may have been beyond your control.

As an aside: This is just another reason to run Slackware. It is one of the only distros which doesn't f__k with the kernel. Pure & unpatched Linus Torvalds source code is what you get. Sorry. It had to be said.

I'm basically too lazy to read the whole thread and sounds like you got everything fixed in the end...

However, I had some issues when I did I think acpi=off and acpi=noirq. When I added those to the kernel boot line to fix some other problem, it absolutely killed usb transfer speeds. Just like cut them by a factor of 10.

(I may be misremembering the exact command line option but it was... oh yeah, now I remember, my laptop randomly claims that its overheated to some ridiculous temperature and reboots when its just running hot as always. But yeah, in case that helps, it could be something like that or a problem with kernel acpi drivers and usb for that version of the kernel or something.)

There's no difference between that and the "dodgy" config, which would seem to confirm my suspicions that it was a kernel code problem (as opposed to a config problem).

I shouldn't have to spend money upgrading hardware to get normal, standard functionality.

Besides, judging how Linux handles USB 2.0 transfers, I'm in no hurry to drop money gambling on how well they implemented 3.0

Are you kidding?

Hey - I realize your tried & true, decade-old, standards-compliant, common, every-day technology doesn't work well with current Linux operating systems... why not make a costly upgrade to your hardware to the latest & greatest non-standard, not-so-common, not-every-day, experimental setup? It's bound to work!

Instead of complaining about the performance of USB in Linux. Like I said a long time ago write a patch. For all this time you have not YET make a patch and/or contribute by answering questions in this forum. Though you are the one that said I should upgrade my hardware when my hardware is USB 2.0 and upgrading to the latest version should not be done if there is performance problems. Since USB is completely software dependent and the kernel or Linux is designed only for server use, USB will not be improved because it is desktop component. When Con Kolivas stop making patches because the kernel developers does not want to take the time to test his patches which are tailer for desktop environments, the kernel has gone downhill for the desktop environment. For example IDE has not been maintained since that time, so the kernel developers placed IDE on a SCSI layer which makes IDE perform worst than it did.

I recommend either create patch and contribute by answering questions or use MAC OS X as your operating system.

I'm not a programmer, electro. Same as I wasn't a programmer last fall when you suggested I just start shitting out patches.

What will it take to get you out of my thread? You're not helping, not contributing anything worthwhile, and you're definitely not wanted.

Go away.

Get cancer.

Die.

On the surface of it, I see Electro trying to explain something, and I see uncertain not liking the explanation.

<<Edit: It comes back to me: Many moons ago, I closed this thread because of the hostilities. I've now scanned the whole thing and I see that Electro's opinions and advice do not enjoy a universal consensus. Regardless, I still think the response from uncertain is a bit much.
I'm going to close it again---If anyone sees a reason to re-open it, please send me e-mail or PM
>>>

uncertain;
I don't know what the issue is, and I don't know the history to which Electro refers. Regardless, your last post here is not appropriate. Consider this an informal warning to not do something like this again.

thank you
