Upgraded Kernel 2.6.9 Locks at Boot (At point uhci_hcd)*Searched and found nothing!


So I just spent the last 5hrs of my left configuring this beast of a kernel and whenever I startup w/ it everything loads smoothly until...

kernel: USB Universal Host Controller Interface Driver v2.2
kernel: ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:00:1d.0[A]-->GSI 16 (level, low)-->IRQ 16
kernel: uhci_hcd 0000:00:1d.0: Intel Corp. 82801EB/ER (ICH5/ICH5R) USB UHC #1
| <-----and it just locks up after it gets to this line


These are the USB settings from my 2.6.9 config file:

# USB support
#
CONFIG_USB=y
# CONFIG_USB_DEBUG is not set

#
# Miscellaneous USB options
#
CONFIG_USB_DEVICEFS=y
CONFIG_USB_BANDWIDTH=y
# CONFIG_USB_DYNAMIC_MINORS is not set
# CONFIG_USB_SUSPEND is not set
# CONFIG_USB_OTG is not set

#
# USB Host Controller Drivers
#
CONFIG_USB_EHCI_HCD=y
# CONFIG_USB_EHCI_SPLIT_ISO is not set
CONFIG_USB_EHCI_ROOT_HUB_TT=y
CONFIG_USB_OHCI_HCD=y
CONFIG_USB_UHCI_HCD=y

Probably just a stupid config error - any help would be greatly appreciated!

That Poor, Sad, and Confused Guy,
Galen

Hey,

To be honest, I don't know what much of that means in the config file. However, from my experience, there's not too much damdage you can do by just experimenting with some stuff here, so let's just try this...

See these lines:

CONFIG_USB_EHCI_HCD=y
# CONFIG_USB_EHCI_SPLIT_ISO is not set
CONFIG_USB_EHCI_ROOT_HUB_TT=y
CONFIG_USB_OHCI_HCD=y
CONFIG_USB_UHCI_HCD=y


let's try and change that those y's to n's, or comment out the lines. Perhaps try changing it to an n first, and if that doesn't help then try commenting out the line. I don't know if you want to do these one at a time, or all at once. Let's do them all first, then if it helped change them back one at a time and see which ones effect it. This might end up being alot of steps, but oh well.

SO yeah, change all those to n first, reboot. If it's good to go, try changing them back one at a time. If changing all of them didn't help, then go back in and comment them all out and reboot. If THAT get's it working, UNcomment them one at a time.

We'll see if this get's us anywhere....

So I've been having problems w/ this Glib business ever since I tried loading BitTorrent. Then I said "forget it" after tinkering a bit. Turns out my tinkering messed up my original glib and gtk (of course!!) so I couldn't load the GUI Linux Config file (non-Gui is a PITA because you HAVE to go back through each step). So I finally realized that initially I was using SWARet wrong and that I didn't have to manually update all my Slackware progs. So after running one through of SWARet(which didn't nearly update enough...I probably should run it a few more times...but TIME is the issue) I got my GUI Config to work. I turned off all the USB UHCI, EHCI, and OHCI stuff I could find and rebooted. Same problem. Also, this time I figured I would go back and look for something related to Intel ICH5 and a USB Controller, yet when I tried starting my Old Linux it said the X-Server wasn't configured correctly and crashed back into the kernel, but didn't leave me as root or anything so I couldn't throw out any 'pico' or other edit programs (I probably just don't know command lines in the kernel). So I figured that since I lost my entire weekend to Linux when I should have been pounding my way through make-up homework,etc and even skipped school today because I didn't get to bed 'till 4am, that I should put Linux on hold until I work on my time-managing skills (it was just one more thing to add to the schedule that already had too much---school, kendo lessons, voice lessons, piano lessons, AND I have MONO). So I must thank you for your insanely helpful advice and wish Linux 'adou' & goodbye until I start into the madness again in the near future.
Cheers!

I understand. I can be tough some days.

Well, come back soon. When you do, consider trying Fedora Core 1 (Not had much luck with 2 or 3), as it's what I learned on and seems the most stable of the "newbie friendly" versions (not to mention it's free). Mandrake is also good, but I was never crazy about the menu layouts, etc. Sometimes it's the little things...;-)

You may want to fidn and download the FC1 ISOs sooner than later though, as they are getting tougher and tougher to find. If you should decide to do so, here's the link to all the mirror sites...

http://fedora.redhat.com/download/mirrors.html

Some of them have already gotten the FC1 ISOs removed, but others still have them.

Anyways, good luck. Get well...

Jeff
