usb read/64 usb etc with suse

hi gosh,

i have the same problem with the "usb read/64 fault" at boot-time, but .. i found this bug with fedora-6, ubuntu-6.10 and all other linux-possibilities, too. maybe this is a kernel-bug? till now, i have no answer. but it is good to know, that is not a suse-special-bug. (iŽam working with suse 10.1 also on msi k8n sli.) if you hear about any solution, tell me.

having similar problems but found a workaround

I just installed a usb 2.0 and firewire card I bought last year on my OpenSuse 10.0 machine. I believe it's a generic one sold at CompUsa, though "Hardware Information" says the vendor is ALi Corporation.

At any rate, I tried connecting an external hard drive to it, but it doesn't show up. I looked at dmesg, this is what it says.

usb 5-6: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 22
usb 5-6: device descriptor read/64, error -71
usb 5-6: device descriptor read/64, error -71
usb 5-6: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 23
usb 5-6: device descriptor read/64, error -71
usb 5-6: device descriptor read/64, error -71
usb 5-6: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 24
usb 5-6: device not accepting address 24, error -71
usb 5-6: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 25
usb 5-6: device not accepting address 25, error -71

I did some googling and found this redhat thread:

https://www.redhat.com/archives/fedo.../msg04044.html

after reading this, i decided to try out what they suggested. I ran the following command: modprobe -r ehci-hcd

after that, i reconnected my external hard drive and it was available in /dev and I was able to mount it just fine.

I am just wondering if there is anything I can do so I don't have to run the modprobe command. It's not an awful workaround, but if something is wrong with my system, I'd like to fix it.

any help would be appreciated. thanks.

My kernel version is: 2.6.13-15.13-smp

Same problem, same solution

I had the same problem and did what gSalsero said which was

run modprobe -r ehci-hcd as root

It then automounted and was accessible AS ROOT. (I couldn't change the permissions for some reason.)

If I disconnected the hard drive and reconnected there was no problem but if I turned off the computer I had to run it again.
