Description of problem:
I own an ASUS P4P800S MB.
FC2 runs smoothly.
I also own Sandisk Imagemate SDDR05 (the one with the eject button USB
If I insert in any USB 2.0 port (legacy USB 1.1 enabled in the BIOS -
works perfectly w/o drivers in Win2k on the same machine)
I do not receive an error but Load jumps to 15%-21%.
When I try to mount nothing happens.
Sometimes I have to reboot (harware reboot) to regain control of the
system. I have tried the same with Kernel 2.6.8-1.521 both Up and SMP,
If using RH9, any kernel, it works fine.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
2.6.6-1.435 and 2.6.6-1.435smp
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Plus USB device into any port
2. look at dmesg
3. try a mount command
4. the mount command waites for ages w/o giving the prompt back in a
Actual Results: No mount
Expected Results: Mount the disk with no problems
DMESG output after plug-in
usb 5-1: USB disconnect, address 3
usb 5-1: new full speed USB device using address 4
scsi1 : SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices
Vendor: Model: Rev:
Type: Direct-Access ANSI SCSI revision: 02
SCSI device sda: 62720 512-byte hdwr sectors (32 MB)
sda: assuming Write Enabled
sda: assuming drive cache: write through
I see the same problem with all USB storage devices (HD's and Flash
cards, etc.). This seams to be related to 2.6.8-1.521, older kernels
like 2.6.7-1.494.2.2 does not have the problem.
Thanks Casper for the suggestion. I have tried Kernel 2.6.7-1.494.2.2
but without success. The only improvement has been a no lock of the
machine when I try to connect.
So far I am not able to mount the CF drive.
My Sandisk Imagemate Unit SDDR05 is the one with eject button.
I only would like to know what has been changed between Redhat 9 stock
Kernels and 2.6.x branch..... It is not said if it works DON'T fix it?
Worse of all I have to rely on Windows to get my photos (I own an old
camera w/o USB port).
Tried 2.6.8-1.521 UP and SMP. No way.
