usb legacy freezes fedora
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:00 EST
Description of problem:
Fedora core 3 (and other linuxes) freezes on plugging in the usb
camera (or other usb stuff)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Activate the usb legacy in the bios setup. (before starting linux)
2. plug in some kind of usb device
And linux freezes ...
The usb camera shoud be mounted.
I don't know what usb legacy is.
I didn't even knew it existed.
I now know the usb legacy should be off by default.
Assigning to kernel.
Actually, contemporary Fedora attempts to switch the legacy off through
the "handover" mechanism. But naturally, a BIOS dumb enough to freeze
often fails to implement handover properly as well.
