I have the 2.6.8 kernel and the motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-7IXE4 with

And, yes, when booting from the 2.4 kernel it does the same thing.

I have a problem concerning a combination of hotplug, usb, and my printer.
Computer is running sarge on a 2.6 kernel. Printer is an HP Deskjet 895C.
What happens is that if I leave my printer usb cable attached during
boot the system hangs at the stage where hotplug verifies the printer.
I get the error "USB 1-2: control time out on e0pin" and boot will not
advance beyond that point. I have to hit the reset button to get out of
this. I have let it just sit for several minutes and nothing ever
happens unless/until I hit reset. If I unplug the printer usb cable the
computer boots normally. And when I plug the printer in after boot up
and restart hotplug it will successfully load the printer drivers and
the printer will work. It does have a couple of oddities in its
operation though. It will print 4 or 5 lines, pause a couple of
seconds, printer a few more lines, pause, and so on. But, that only
happens when printing documents from applications. It doesn't do that
when printing a test page from the CUPS interface. It also won't print
from a web browser. However, the main irritation is not being able to
boot successfully with the usb cable plugged in.
If I unistall hotplug the computer boots fine, it just won't recognize
my printer or sound card. I tried usbmgr and when using it the boot
process will hang at the same place if the printer usb cable is plugged
in too, but if I unplug the cable it will recognize the printer is not
there anymore and continue on to boot successfully.
Anyone have any ideas on this? Seen this before?
What kernel and chipset are you using? Afaik there's an issue with VIA
chipsets and the early versions of the 2.6 kernel which causes the USB
subsystem to fail. Does reverting back to the 2.4 kernel exhibit the
same behavior as well?
