Can't get USB PCI adaptor to work


Hi,

I have problem with my VIA PCI USB host adaptor. I'm using Debian woody, kernel 2.4.18-386, on a Cyrix 233 MHZ, PM 8600 A.
I've the latest Bios version, however USB is not supported.
The installation of the card was no problem though. This is the output of lspci:
00:00.0 Host bridge: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT82C585VP [Apollo VP1/VPX] (rev 10)
00:07.0 ISA bridge: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT82C586/A/B PCI-to-ISA [Apollo VP] (rev 02)

00:08.2 USB Controller: VIA Technologies, Inc.: Unknown device 3104 (rev 63)
00:0a.0 Ethernet controller: Digital Equipment Corporation DECchip 21142/43 (rev 41)

The problem seems to be when i boot, when a timeout error occurs:

I can use mount -t usbdevfs none /proc/bus/usb to get map the hubs, but my memorystick or webcam is not detected.

I had similar problems with two (different make) usb PCI cards, both using VIA chipsets. Mine was on my brother's windows PC but the symptoms were basically the same (except windows being what it is froze on failure!).

I'm sorry to say that after much web searching it seems that this is just an incompatibility of the VIA chipset with some motherboards. The only way I could solve the problem was to buy a different card with an NEC chipset.
