SuSE10 USB Not Working


hi everyone (again),


with my last problem fixed it's on to another. The usb doesn't seem to be working. It decteds that there are USB hubs, but even lsusb doesn't detect anything plugged (I thought it might not be mounting it when plugged in or something). I've tried it with a new USB as I thought the old one might need drivers but that didn't help.

thanks,
Dan

Could you please provide some further info:

- What kind of device you are trying to use?
- Does the output of dmesg show any usb related messages after you plugged it in?

Is USB activated in your BIOS?

Hi, thanks for the reply.

Looks like the USB is working. I've got some USB related messages that look like this:

uhci_hcd 0000:00:10.0: UHCI Host Controller
uhci_hcd 0000:00:10.0: new USB bus registered, assigned bus number 1
uhci_hcd 0000:00:10.0: irq 10, io base 0x0000d000
hub 1-0:1.0: USB hub found
hub 1-0:1.0: 2 ports detected
ACPI-0212: *** Warning: Device is not power manageable
ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:00:10.1[B] -> Link [LNKE] -> GSI 10 (level, low) -> IRQ
10


so it looks like its finding the ports but not recognising anythings plugged in.

The device is a Crucial 128mb pen drive.


Thanks,
Dan

Is your USB hub powered? That might make a difference.

I've found aN USB viewer that provides more information than say lsusb. Perhaps it can be helpful. http://usbview.sourceforge.net
