SuSE Linux 9.1 Personal: Error message "module usb_uhci not found"

I've used the speedtouchconf scripts at

to configure my Speedtouch 330 modem. The script now runs perfectly until I get to the stage where my modem starts showing two solid green lights, I get confirmation that I've connected, then the Pipex ADSL connection crashes out with the fatal error message

"module usb_uhci not found"

I've looked on google for help on this, and found a page about Asterisk Timers at

I'm not sure whether Del Dimension runs uhci or ohci, but will check before I run either the ztdummy or zaprtc suggested. More importantly, I would welcome advice on whether I'm going in the right direction. Am I barking up completely the wrong tree, and is there some other way that I can resolve the usb_uhci issue?

Any ideas?

uhm. I think you should recompile the kernel and compile usb_uhci as a module.

No wonder that there isn't a usb_uhci module in SuSE 9.1.

SuSE 9.1 has a 2.6.x kernel and there the USB drivers are called


In the 2.4.x kernel the usb driver modules were called

However, those names are obsolete with the 2.6.x kernels.

So modify your script according to the new USB driver module names.

Dell uses usually the Intel Chipset so it shall be the UHCI driver (at least all
the Dell Dimension PCs I have ever seen do use uhci)

OHCI is the USB spec from Compaq (now HP), Microsoft and NEC.

However you do not have to worry about this: You simply can not load the
wrong module, since it will fail. If you have a UHCI compatible Chipset loading
an OHCI driver will fail and vice versa.
