Hmmm... This looks like a group of Gigabyte mobo users all having the
same problem. I wonder if the bug is in the usb controller Gigabyte is
using or in the kernel? I also get some error messages related to usb
with a 2.4.27-1-k7 Debian-built kernel too. However, once it boots all
usb devices work correctly. The error on the 2.4 kernel during boot is
usb_control/bulk_msg: timeout. It will timeout anywhere from 4 to 10
times before everything loads properly.
My printer is an HP Deskjet 895C and my scanner is an HP 6200 C.
Oh, and about my mobo having a lan port as a firewire port, well, this
mobo was made before firewire even existed.
we're not alone...
:-( <shrug> 2.4 works OK...
As an update to this....
I just did an apt-get upgrade this morning and a new hotplug package
version was installed. I was booted into the 2.6.8 kernel at the time
and decided to do an "/etc/init.d/hotplug restart". Wonder of wonders!
With the new version of hotplug it restarted successfully and loaded
both my printer and scanner.
I thought that was great so I rebooted to see if this would work from at
boot time and my system hung again. After I had to hit the manual reset
switch to get out of that I couldn't restart hotplug at all after
booting into the system. I figured it got corrupted because of just
having to power off the system so I uninstalled it, rebooted to
completely reset the system environment, reinstalled hotplug, and once
again my printer and scanner are working under the 2.6.8 kernel. Sure
wish I could boot up with them installed but at least I can use them
with this kernel now.
