Description Brian "netdragon" Bober 2003-08-29 23:42:56 UTC
Description of problem:
I have an MSI I845G Max.

If I plug anything into the USB or USB2 ports, the computer freezes on bootup at
the message:

Initializing USB driver ehci-hcd

Otherwise, if I use the USB ports open, they work fine if I plug in items after

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Redhat 8.0
Redhat 9.0
(happened on both)

(~)> cat /proc/version
Linux version 2.4.20-8 (bhcompile@porky.devel.redhat.com) (gcc version 3.2.2
20030222 (Red Hat Linux 3.2.2-5)) #1 Thu Mar 13 17:54:28 EST 2003

How reproducible:

Buy the mainboard? :-/ 
You have to plug something into the USB ports on bootup, or it boots fine

Additional info:
I would be willing to do debugging or anything necessary if you want. I'm
desperate. I don't want to constantly unplug USB every time I boot.

Comment 1 Bill Heiden 2003-10-29 03:14:40 UTC
This also appears to be a problem with the 2.4.9-e.25smp kernel.  During bootup 
I get the following: modprobe - Can't locate module ehci-hcd.  The machine in 
question is an IBM 6221 (dual 2.8GHZ).  Haven't actually tried to plug in a USB 
device yet...

Comment 2 Brian "netdragon" Bober 2004-03-07 02:38:20 UTC
This is still a problem.

I found that if I enable "legacy USB support" that it causes this
issue. If I disable it, the issue goes away.


I still have an MSI I845G Max.

Comment 3 Brian "netdragon" Bober 2004-03-07 02:52:14 UTC
"legacy USB support" in BIOS CMOS setup, that is.

Comment 4 Brian "netdragon" Bober 2004-04-13 23:29:05 UTC
This seems to be fixed on FC2 test2 (kernel 2.6.5-1.319). Can anyone

Comment 5 Bugzilla owner 2004-09-30 15:41:29 UTC
Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
