Ok I'll go and check out those things.

The other line at boot said: somedate-2001 - VT8366 - 8233 - some other numbers/letters. I've just googled the VT VT8366 8233 and think that might be it, but if not I'll look for a label.

You probably realised this already but just in case I didn't mention - all my usb stuff's running fine in windows.

The grep command didn't work. So I tried ls while in usr/src and got nothing. Also got nothing with cat /proc/bus/pci/devices.

I repeated the modprobe commands with the extra one, and got the same output as from the dmesg after the modprobes before (after plugging stuff back in). i.e. this:

Code:

But with this on the end:

'USB Universal Host Controller Interface driver v2.3'


I tried 'modprobe ehci-hdc' and got:

'fatal: module ehci-hdc not found.


That's all of it I think.

Yes - I've even tried installing it twice and had the same problem both times. Thanks for doing all you've done anyway, really - I'm so grateful you've given up your time to this infuriating business!

If anyone knows what I should do about this ... ?

are you using any PCI devices on your linux system that are working, ie video card? or is that built in?

whats the output of 'ls -a /proc/'? do you have any 'config...' file in /boot? if so post the output of 'cat /boot/config-filename' whatever its called.

EDIT: can you post your _complete_ dmesg output and 'sysctl -a' (prepend with '/sbin/' if it doesnt run).

Umm I'm not sure about other PCI devices, sorry. I guess things like my video card are built-in.

I ran the stuff you suggested. For some reason I'm having trouble saving the results of the command output in a file. (I'm doing command > filename.txt (i tried .odt and .out too)).

I already have the dmesg stuff from earlier so here it is:

Code:

I'll have to figure out the storing output business before I can post the output of the other two things - they were long!

Just off to bed now. Thanks again

did you download the ubuntu CD or is it an official CD purchased online or from a store?

so your video card is integrated into the motherboard? can you verify on the back of the PC to see if there are any PCI devices? most common would be sound or video card.

i really dont know what else to say but i _really_ hope someone can help because i would be very interested in knowing whats going on.

would you be willing to try another linux distribution? i think that may be an option, if we can get your system to work in any other distro, it will work in ubuntu. if you want to explore this option check out www.distrowatch.com for a list of the most popular distros. id recommend downloading and installing one of the first eleven (only because Slackware is #11 ) and see if you can get your USB (or at least lspci) running! im sure you can.

Yeah, thanks Nadroj - I think it's time for me to give up! I'll try another distro and see how I get on.

See you around no doubt
