usbcore, usb-uhci


I am having trouble modprobing usb-uhci that i require loaded. I have recompiled the kernel with the appropriate options, but I still can't load USB-UHCI. USBCORE is loaded fine.

options selected: USB Support
Support for USB=Y, Preliminary USB Device filesystem=Y
UHCI support=M, UHCI Alternate Driver support=M

When I modprobe USB-UHCI I see

...../usb-uhci.o: init_module: No such device
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.

Looking in dmesg I see the following:

usb.c: registered new driver hub
uhci.c: USB Universal Host Controller Interface Driver v1.1
PCI: FOund IRQ 5 with 00:0d.0
uhci.c: USB UHCI at I/O 0xb400, IRQ 5
usb.c: new USB bus registered, assigned bus number 1
hub.c: USB hub found
hub.c: 2 ports detected
....
....

If anyone can help me with this, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

There's TWO modules with uhci
in the name ...
uhci & usb-uhci
try a lsmod to see what's actually already loaded,
also check that you didn't compile one of them into
the kernel rather than as a module :)

Cheers,
Tink

I only have usbcore loaded.

I have UHCI (Intel PIIX4 VIA) support set as MODULE.

As far as I am aware, I should be able to modprobe usb-uhci, but this gives the error already identified. I am actually trying to compile another program that requires USB-UHCI, so I am quite certain it isn't loaded because that program doesn't compile properly either.

if I "can /proc/bus/usb/drivers", I see

usbdevfs
hub

At some point I could modprobe usb-uhci, but couldnt modprobe usbcore. Now I have the reverse problem.

Make sure you loaded the correct one in the module. There are two different uhci modules, and things wig out if you don't load the right one. There's a command you can run to see which one your system would be happiest with, but I can't find it right now.

And the dmesgoutput suggests that it's
being loaded on boot ... ?

What kernel are you using?

ok i noticed in rh 7.2 my usb 1 stuff was werkin fine but my usb 2 controller wasnt being recognized at all so i upgraded to rh 9 and bingo all is well. the reason in my case was that kernel 2.3.18-10 didnt have support for usb 2 and 2.4.20-18 or whatever it is does. which is i think your problem. also the new kernel had support for my on board 6 ch audio so it was golden at install time. try upgradeing to a newer kernel and see if that helps, i know it did in my case.
