Question 4-6 logs from kernel Per SECOND! How to stop?


Both of the following two (2) log files are going nuts;

/var/log/messages
/var/log/warn

Both are filling up with;
Code:
Jan 30 15:32:32 host kernel: hub 4-0:1.0: over-current change on port 1
Jan 30 15:32:32 host kernel: hub 4-0:1.0: over-current change on port 2
Jan 30 15:32:32 host kernel: hub 4-0:1.0: over-current change on port 1
Jan 30 15:32:32 host kernel: hub 4-0:1.0: over-current change on port 2
Jan 30 15:32:32 host kernel: hub 4-0:1.0: over-current change on port 1
Jan 30 15:32:32 host kernel: hub 4-0:1.0: over-current change on port 2
Jan 30 15:32:32 host kernel: hub 4-0:1.0: over-current change on port 1
Jan 30 15:32:32 host kernel: hub 4-0:1.0: over-current change on port 2
Jan 30 15:32:33 host kernel: hub 4-0:1.0: over-current change on port 1
Jan 30 15:32:33 host kernel: hub 4-0:1.0: over-current change on port 2
Jan 30 15:32:33 host kernel: hub 4-0:1.0: over-current change on port 1
Jan 30 15:32:33 host kernel: hub 4-0:1.0: over-current change on port 2
Jan 30 15:32:33 host kernel: hub 4-0:1.0: over-current change on port 1
Jan 30 15:32:33 host kernel: hub 4-0:1.0: over-current change on port 2
Jan 30 15:32:33 host kernel: hub 4-0:1.0: over-current change on port 1
Jan 30 15:32:33 host kernel: hub 4-0:1.0: over-current change on port 2
"host" is my domain

Something is NOT happy here.

Everything however seems to be working fine. I found one mention (in german no less) when I googled for this error. It seemed to mention USB issues. These logs however continue to generate with or without any USB device connectd.

Need help folks!

Edit your /etc/syslog.conf file.

What? That's what you need to edit to change the level of logging for your system for messages and warn.

man syslog.conf if you don't understand how to fix or use this file. What'd did you expect, a definitive answer to your question? I'm pointing you in the correct direction so you can actually learn something..

>man syslog.conf
No manual entry for syslog.conf



Not that 'man files' are very user friendly anyway.

Silly me, yes I did actually expect an answer. I guess "LinuxQuestions" means you'll leave with the same confusion you came with. Thanks much!

If the man pages aren't on your system, google is your friend to search for man pages online..

http://www.die.net/doc/linux/man/man...og.conf.5.html

And yes, LinuxQuestions is a place to ask questions to get answers but answers can also be those that point you in the right direction or enlighten you on how to use existing resources. Don't expect your hand to be held everytime, what would be the fun of that? At least this way your actually learning something about a system your apparently supporting... so perhaps you should drop the negative attitude and appreciate that fact that I'm the only member here that has actually responded to your problem to actually try and help you in my own spare free time. Last time I checked, this wasn't a pay for support site, so you really shouldn't set your expectations too high on something that might not possibly happen. Some members have actually asked questions and never recieved any solutions or answers.

Cheers and good luck..

I'm more curious as to what the messages are and why you are getting them... You don't normally get kernel messages for nothing...

Like mentioned on another forum where he asked this and I also found this same issue on the LKML, someone said it's drawing more current than what his USB ports can handle. And if there is truly nothing connected to any USB port on his system, there is most likely something wrong with this systems USB ports. Don't need the USB ports for anything, like I mentioned before, change your kernel logging level. Or disable USB altogether or check with the hardware vendor as it's hardware related issues, but nothing is wrong with the OS itself.
