A recent post mentioned having USB on a U10. I bought a StarTech PCIUSB7
card because it is said to be Linux compatible. With the PCI USB card
installed the U5 flashes the keyboard leds twice and does nothing else.
Stop-a doesn't do anything. It has debian 7.5.0 installed from the
netinstall.iso. Do USB drivers have to be manually installed?
I have used DeLock PCI USB/FireWire card successfully on U5/U10 to access
USB and FireWire disks. It works with standard EHCI/UHCI/OHCI drivers.
To my surprise, even the ancient firmware recognized the FireWire but I
have never tried to access it except from Linux.
The StarTech USB card works perfectly in an x86 PC. I have an 8 port
PCI serial card that works fine on Solaris 2.6. With this card the U5
boots normally so probably the PCI bus is ok. I will try to find a
DeLock USB card.
Thanks for the help.
