Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 133857
USB not loaded
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:48:47 EDT
Description of problem:
The init scripts do not load the USB modules anymore.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2. lsmod | grep usb
no usb modules
find usb modules
This is really boggling me. First off: All I can say is, it works
with initscripts-7.50-1, it doesn't work with initscripts-7.82-1.
I had some recent (also peculiar) problems with my Ethernet
controller not being automatically loaded (using 7.50-1), noticed
some buglets in the init scripts, and decided to update after reading
the changelog. With 7.82-1, my Ethernet driver was now automatically
loaded, but the USB modules (and also /proc/bus/usb/ of course)
disappeared. I do not know what to do to load them manually, at least
not enough to get my USB modem to work (USB Flash drive works
manually). Reverting to initscripts-7.50-1 gets everything
operational again. The DSL modem is USB via hotplug (Allied Telesyn
AT-AR215), but that's not the point. It can't initialize because it
misses usb support at boot. Any ideas? Any log files I can help out
If I had some of the intermediate initscripts versions available, I
could check which version breaks my USB. Perhaps someone can provide
I'm running FC2 + some of FC devel, kernel 2.4.22-1.2188+some
modifications (2.4 because of said USB DSL driver, which I haven't
got to work out of the box with 2.6 yet), no udev (as far as I can
tell ;-> the package is there, but I see no proof of it running), and
said USB driver is eagle-usb-de, http://atar215-linux.sf.net/ .
Thanks for any help!

lsmod with initscripts-7.50-1
Current initscripts do not work with 2.4 kernels.
