Question Various USB bugs on Ubuntu Server 12.04 LTS


Hi everybody,
since 2 years I am running an heavily modified (new CPU, new RAM, new HDD, new GPU) HP desktop as a server using Ubuntu Server 10.04 and lately 12.04.
Now, I have decided to upgrade it to a HTPC (with Satellite TV, video archive etc.). For this, among other things I got a Technisat SkyStar USB HD (DVB-S2 tuner) and a Microsoft Wireless 800 KB/Mouse combo. And so the problems started. Both KB and Mouse are extremely laggy (>2sec) and the tuner takes nearly 2 minutes to tune to a channel. If I connect a keyboard to the PS/2-input, it works smooth and perfect. I decided to test the hardware with a Mythbuntu Live-USB-Stick, which, however, took ages to start (after 30min i reset the system).
From this, I figured out that the problem is the USB port, so I took an NEC USB 2.0 PCI card I had floating around and installed it into the system. The card itself was detected, but the ports don't work better.
According to dmesg at startup the system tells me that IRQ 19 and 23 occured and nobody cared for them. From lspci -v and /proc/interrupts I got that these two IRQs belong to the North- of Southbridge (I'm not entirely sure) and the USB-PCI-card. Interestingly, only the USB 2.0 (EHCI) devices don't work.
The Linux USB FAQ states that in this case, one should try to remove the ehci-hcd module, however, it isn't even loaded (should I load it?).

System specs are:
MB: Some HP-designed MB
Chipset: ATI IXP SB400
CPU: AMD Athlon 64 4000+
RAM: 4GB DDR
GPU: Zotac GeForce G210
USB card: NEC Corporation Hama USB

lsmod |grep hci

might show ehci, or xhci. That's ok. xhci is usb-3.0 but downwards compatible

In /etc/modprobe.d/, try adding this line to a file
Quote:
install ochi /sbin/modprobe ehci-hcd; /sbin/modprobe ohci-hcd
That loads ehci before ohci which sometimes is an issue.
