After installing nVidia's nvgart patch, ethernet driver and sound driver a number of problems with the nForce2 chipset gotfixed.usb is still a problem. I've been able to get a Sony clie to sync, but intermittantly. Half the time usb doesn't register the device when I try to hot sync. Plugging a webcam gets me log message that show thewebcam is noticed, but I don't get a useable device.
Jerome, Check out my kernel config: http://pegasus.cc.ucf.edu/~ro668344/kernel-2.4.22-config_athlon-xp I had the same exact problem you had with USB. I would get log messages but the devices would remain inaccessible. In my case, it was a USB mouse and a Smartmedia card reader. Pay particular attention to the section on SCSI support. I found that some things I thought were unnecessary (like SCSI generic) actually were necessary. As far as kernel 2.4.22, I haven't found any real problem to get it functioning. I used the Debian kernel-source package and everything Just Works (tm), with the exception of the onboard nForce ethernet. The nVidia AGPGART support is in the 2.4.22 kernel, as is the nForce2 OSS drivers, so the only problem is ethernet, which still works. What I did was make, and then instead of make install, I just copied nvnet.o into /lib/modules/<version>/kernel/drivers/net/ and then ran a depmod -a HTH, -Roberto
