usb wont work anymore


hey
a couple of days ago, i purchased a nice new case and a second harddrive for my system. transplanted all the internals and everything seems fine... except usb

it fails to work on my front usb ports and rear motherboard ports. ive tried everything, including the old usb cable from mobo to front ports in case the wiring was different.

the output of dmesg is as follows:

i noticed the error messages at the end and i have tried changing cables.. still nothing
anyways the rear ports dont have a cable, they are directly off the motherboard.

any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated

thanks

hey
ok i eventually found a solution to my problem, im not sure why but it seems ehci-hcd was conflicting? or something. i really have no idea.
i was playing around removing modules to see if it helps at all and an rmmod ehci-hcd instantly fixed the issue.

so if anyone encounters a similiar prob heres the solution that worked for me

thanks

here here

I too have this issue with my nforce 2 and most current distros(xandros 3 oce is the only exception), preventing me from installing any of them because I can't use my usb keyboard after the modules load, I end up with the same output as above. Is there a (kernel?) boot type command I can use to try your solution? (sorry, I'm ...so newb)
