Sometimes it interferes with the basic responsiveness of the mouse or keyboard. Sometimes a BIOS fix will be available for your motherboard, and in other cases a more recent kernel will have a Linux fix. This acts just like the interface in an actual hub an almost every respect; see below. HotPlugging is a facility that can load and configure drivers as you plug in your devices. It seems that, given the prevalence of USB, this is one of the most pressing bugs in Linux.

If you’re not running at USB 2. You may be able to work around this by passing the noapic boot option to your kernel, or when you’re using an add-in PCI card moving the USB adapter to some other PCI slot. I’ve seen others with this issue, have there been any answers? The default value of works well with most devices. Switch to ehxi different USB connector on your computer.

It seems some devices do not like this new method though. October 17th, 5.

If the device works OK at full speed on the same system, after you “rmmod ehci-hcd”, this is likely the problem you’re seeing. I have only read one, and thought it was very poor. If you are sure that you actually bcd a suitable hardware setup, look for a BIOS option that could be applicable.

Linux Kernel Driver DataBase: CONFIG_USB_EHCI_HCD: EHCI HCD (USB ) support

When Linux submits a request, but never hears back from the controller, this is the diagnostic you’ll see. If by this point you haven’t already found and fixed the problem, then you have several places to report the bug.

First make sure that it’s a bug that hasn’t yet been fixed. Originally Posted by ajm Remember, always say what kernel version you’re using including summarizing any custom patches you’re running. It has many fewer intellectual property restrictions than UHCI.


It requires a license from Intel. In other words, the name starts with the bus number followed by a ‘-‘.

Linux USB Frequently Asked Questions

If it is supposed to be UHCI, it helps to know whether interrupts are being generated every second. You can always increase the value above 64 using sysfs, but don’t go beyond as Genesys Logic rhci are known to fail when transferring more than 64 KB.

It’s not USB-specific; Cardbus hotplugging works the same way, and other kernel subsystems should be taking the same approach.

Some SMP motherboards need a “noapic” boot option. In your boot kernel or initial RAM disk you need to include support for all the needed items to support using a USB disk.

The devices are named by a scheme like this:.

I would ehck a solution to this problem. This solution also worked on the Gateway Solo notebook. Sometimes it causes USB mass storage devices to be unmounted during a read or write, in some cases causing data corruption. Go ahead and experiment to find what value works best with your hardware.
