USB device detection weirdness


I am trying to attach my phone, an LG AX5000, to the computer with its data cable. I need it to get to the point where it is detected and has a device name -- BitPim can do the rest from there.

It doesn't seem to be working. Here's what I have:
from dmesg:
Quote:
usb 3-3: new full speed USB device using ohci_hcd and address 78
usb 3-3: device descriptor read/64, error -62
usb 3-3: device descriptor read/64, error -62
usb 3-3: new full speed USB device using ohci_hcd and address 79
usb 3-3: device descriptor read/64, error -62
usb 3-3: device descriptor read/64, error -62
usb 3-3: new full speed USB device using ohci_hcd and address 80
usb 3-3: device not accepting address 80, error -62
usb 3-3: new full speed USB device using ohci_hcd and address 81
usb 3-3: device not accepting address 81, error -62
from lsusb:

Bus 4 Device 1: ID 0000:0000
Bus 1 Device 1: ID 0000:0000
Bus 3 Device 1: ID 0000:0000
Bus 2 Device 3: ID 03f0:8104 Hewlett-Packard
Bus 2 Device 2: ID 046d:c03e Logitech, Inc. Premium Optical Wheel Mouse
Bus 2 Device 1: ID 0000:0000
(those are my mouse and my printer, the phone isn't showing up)

from udevmonitor while plugging in and unplugging the phone, I get absolutely no output at all.

A different kernel version didn't help anything.

Googling turned up some stuff about editing files to make hotplug work (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=359947), but if I understand correctly, hotplug isn't used at all in Slackware any more...

One thing you might try, and this is not from experience with that
or any other telephone. Your dmesg output shows "ohci_hcd" as the
module, but Enhanced Host Controller Interface (EHCI) is standard
for USB 2.0 "high speed" (480 Mbit/sec, 60 Mbyte/sec) host controller
hardware. See if you can get your phone to a USB 2.0 port, and also
run as root "tail -f /var/log/messages" in another terminal so that
you can see the output, and give us all of it. Such as this:
Code:
root@silas:~# tail -f /var/log/messages
