usb problem: usb system refuses to recognize hardware
I have a problem. Up to now, I have user digikam to copy pictures from a ptp
compliant camera to my HD. Somehow, suddenly the usb system in this computer
won't properly function anymore. All I have done is a dist-upgrade with
target Sarge recently, this is a system that largely runned Sarge with some
bits of stable.
[00:32] root@dionysos:/var/log# lsusb
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
That is the root hub I suppose, but the stupid thing is, I can mount whatever
usb device I want (I also have a bad old unused scanner), lsusb still only
shows that one device.
Can someone please give me a hint, I don't know where to start :-( . I have
no conflicts in my apt database, no unconfigured packages, no unsatisfied
dependencies. The kernel is selfcompiled, and has remained the same for some
time (2 september as you can see:).
