USB device is not claimed by any active driver for every device in Linux 2.4


Hi there,

The error "USB device 6 (vend/prod 0x603/0xf2) is not claimed by any active driver." is in dmesg every time I connect my Logitech keyboard to my system. I also tried (all with the same error):
- Memory stick
- DVD-burner
- Compaq mouse

Some information about my system:

Code:
$ uname -a
Linux 2.4.32-rthal5 #231 Thu Nov 4 15:26:03 CET 2010 i586 unknown
Just after reboot:
Code:
$ dmesg
...
usb.c: unable to get major 180 for usb devices
usb.c: registered new driver usbdevfs
usb.c: deregistering driver usbdevfs
usb.c: registered new driver hub

Inserting ehci-hcd:
Code:
$ modprobe ./lib/modules/2.4.32-rthal5/kernel/drivers/usb/host/ehci-hcd.o
Using ./lib/modules/2.4.32-rthal5/kernel/drivers/usb/host/ehci-hcd.o
Code:

mac_check                688   0 (unused)
I also tried to load OHCI and UHCI, but this gives:
Code:
$ modprobe ./lib/modules/2.4.32-rthal5/kernel/drivers/usb/host/usb-ohci.o
Using ./lib/modules/2.4.32-rthal5/kernel/drivers/usb/host/usb-ohci.o
insmod: init_module: usb-ohci: No such device
In the kernel documentation the ohci-hcd is mentioned, but I can't find that driver.

When I insert an USB device:
Code:
$ dmesg
...
hub.c: new USB device 00:0f.4-1, assigned address 2
usb.c: USB device 2 (vend/prod 0x603/0xf2) is not claimed by any active driver.
Can you help me getting some steps further with this?


Best regards,
Jacques.

That kernel is quite old. You should consider upgrading to the latest 2.6 kernel. Usb support is much better in the 2.6 kernel.

I wish I could!

The strange thing is that the same software works great on other hardware using the usb-ohci driver...

I tried the following:
  • Removed usb and ohci from the kernel
  • Compiled usbcore and usb-ohci as modules
  • Then inserted the modules in this order:
    Code:
    insmod $KERNDRVPATH/usb/usbcore.o
    insmod $KERNDRVPATH/usb/host/usb-ohci.o
    insmod $KERNDRVPATH/usb/host/usb-uhci.o
    mount -t usbdevfs none /proc/bus/usb
    insmod $KERNDRVPATH/usb/serial/ftdi_sio.o
    insmod $KERNDRVPATH/input/input.o
    insmod $KERNDRVPATH/input/mousedev.o
    insmod $KERNDRVPATH/input/keybdev.o
    insmod $KERNDRVPATH/usb/hid.o

Not sure if this is the best solution, but it works now :-).
