Problem in enabling USB 3.0 in Fedora 16 in Dell Inspiron 1525
 
I recently bought WD Elements SE 1TB (USB 3.0) Hard Drive (WDBPCK0010BBK)
but I am unable to enable USB 3.0 in my laptop.I googled and found that you just have to enable xHCI module but I am unable to do it.Can someone guide me in doing that?
Thank you

Search the kernel configuration for

Code:

CONFIG_USB_XHCI_HCD

theashishmishra 12-30-2011 01:25 PM

How to do that?
I tried this

[root@Ashish Invincible]# CONFIG_USB_XHCI_HCD
bash: CONFIG_USB_XHCI_HCD: command not found...

andrewthomas 12-30-2011 01:43 PM

Look in your /boot directory. I am not that familiar with Fedora, but there should be some sort of config file.

What is the output of

Code:

ls -al /boot

theashishmishra 12-30-2011 01:45 PM

This was the output

Are you sure that your laptop supports USB-3.0?

Was the drive plugged in when you did the lsmod command?

also

Code:

dmesg | grep USB

No It wasn't..but after plugging the device..this was the output of lsmod

As far as I can tell, your model does not support usb-3.0, therefore the drive will operate at usb-2.0 speed.

If it did you would see something such as this:
