Description of problem:
Starting with kernel kernel-2.6.9-1.678_FC3 there is a problem
with udev and USB on startup. with kernel kernel-2.6.9-1.667
everything is fine. if a USB-Memory stick is plugged-in during
startup, udev sais: disabling IRQ 9 and my mouse and/or keyboard is
dead. without memory-stick plugged-in mouse and keyboard is okay. this
problem does not occur with kernel-2.6.9-1.667 so i guess its a kernel
compile issue.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-2.6.9-1.678_FC3, kernel-2.6.9-1.681_FC3

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. plug in usb-stick and boot with kernel kernel-2.6.9-1.678_FC3 or

Actual Results:  when udev initalizes the hardware it will output
"Disabling IRQ 9" and the mouse will not work.

Expected Results:  mouse working and usb stick-mounted when boot is

Additional info:

the usb-stick is a 256MB Stick from www.data-bar.com and works with
windows and linux (with the above mentioned 667-kernel). its formated
with FAT32. my mouse is Logitech Optical Mouse with Mousewheel (i dont
know the name, i hope this a serial, which identifies the type: M-BJ69)
The Computer is a Fujitsu-Siemens Notebook with a "mobile AMD Athlon
(tm) 1800+" (from cat /proc/cpuinfo).

I have a simular problem with FC3  2.6.9-1.681_FC3. With no usb
devices plugged in, system boots and function as expected. plug in any
usb device, memory stick, scanner whatever ... and I loose both the 
keyboard and mouse.

Comment 2 Dave Jones 2005-07-15 20:20:20 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

Thank you.
