Description of problem:
NoName 7-Port USB 2.0 Hub attached to USB 2.0 Port on VIA PCI Card:
Bootup hangs

Same Hub attached to Onboard USB 1.1 Port: Bootup succeeds

This behavior also occurs with kernel-2.6.8-1.526.

Output on bootup:

Initializing USB controller (uhci-hcd):    [OK]
Initializing USB controller (ehci-hcd):    [OK]
Mounting USB filesystem:                   [OK]

No devices are attached to the Hub. When the Hub is connected to the
PCI card after bootup it is detected by the kernel as expected.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Attach Hub to Port on PCI Card
2.Boot system

Actual Results:  Bootup hangs

Expected Results:  Bootup should continue

Comment 1 Peter Klotz 2004-09-13 05:58:40 UTC
Booting still hangs with rawhide kernel 2.6.8-1.541.

Comment 2 Peter Klotz 2004-10-17 09:10:04 UTC
Booting still hangs with rawhide kernel 2.6.8-1.610.

The problem has its origin in /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit, line 220:
needusbstorage=`LC_ALL=C grep -e "^I.*Cls=08" /proc/bus/usb/devices

This line hangs the machine. When commenting it out, booting continues
until "Checking for new hardware". Here it hangs again.

Comment 3 Peter Klotz 2004-10-23 07:43:24 UTC
Booting finally works with kernel 2.6.9-1.640.

Comment 4 Dave Jones 2005-07-15 20:14:01 UTC
An update has been released for Fedora Core 3 (kernel-2.6.12-1.1372_FC3) which
may contain a fix for your problem.   Please update to this new kernel, and
report whether or not it fixes your problem.

If you have updated to Fedora Core 4 since this bug was opened, and the problem
still occurs with the latest updates for that release, please change the version
field of this bug to 'fc4'.

Thank you.

This bug has been automatically closed as part of a mass update.
It had been in NEEDINFO state since July 2005.
If this bug still exists in current errata kernels, please reopen this bug.

There are a large number of inactive bugs in the database, and this is the only
way to purge them.

Thank you.
