Angry USB Ports Deregistered


After an update of my kernel to get my Radeon 9800 working with my nForce board , my USB mouse did not work. Out came the USB to PS/2 connector and I thought I could forget about that little problem . I found out I couldnt be farther from the truth. On trying to sync my palm for the first time I noticed there was no activity so i ran dmesg. This is the part that I noticed was wrong:

usb-ohci.c: USB OHCI at membase 0xf8f77000, IRQ 11
usb-ohci.c: usb-00:02.0, nVidia Corporation nForce2 USB Controller

ehci_hcd 00:02.2: remove state 3
usb.c: USB disconnect on device 00:02.2-0 address 1

Nice.... lol. Any suggestion pls?

<EDIT> Forgot some essential info

Did you build the kernel with all the USB modules?

I've seen some problems with the USB and 2.4.22 kernel. Extract a new copy of linux-2.4.22 and patch the kernel with patch-2.4.23-pre5.

Good luck

I have just gone through check my options and all usb drivers are compiled as modules. This includes UHCI etc and fully compliant HID etc.

So i got 2.4.23-pre6 as pre5 is not on www.kernel.org and patched it in succesfully but I get dodgy menu errors when im in xconfig and I cant do anything.

Seeing as you mentioned pre5 i'll hunt for that elsewhere. Trouble is there must have been something wrong with it so I'm unsure.

Didn't know pre6 was out. Have to check it out. The pre5 is there on the site you just have to goto the ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/

Check out my site here for building the kernel the way I do for Redhat.
http://www.fullnet.com/u/crusher9/kernel.html

Most of the site is blank, but I have a few things done.

Have fun
