UHCI problems

When I try to :
modprobe uhci I get the following :

lib/modules/2.4.20-4GB/kernel/drivers/usb/uhci.o: init_module: No such device
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
You may find more information in syslog or the output from dmesg
/lib/modules/2.4.20-4GB/kernel/drivers/usb/uhci.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.20-4GB/kernel/drivers/usb/uhci.o failed
/lib/modules/2.4.20-4GB/kernel/drivers/usb/uhci.o: insmod uhci failed

Any ideas ?

Thanks in advance for all replies

Possibly a simple error... try this one instead:
modprobe usb-uhci.

When you do a kernel compile there are two mutually exclusive modules for high speed USB support. UHCI is one and the name of the other does not come immediately to mind. SuSE may have compiled one or the other or neither into the kernel.

One way to check to see if you have UHCI is the modprobe that you did. Another way is this command:
find /lib/modules -iname "*uhci*"

If you stumble across OHCI in /lib/modules/kernel/drivers/usb/ I am reasonably sure that is low speed USB support.
