this machine is a dualbot and usb works fine on windows ME, and worked
fine in linux redhat 6.2
here is output from uname -a

Sory for my bad english, its not my native language
The code in ohci did not change, so something is fishy.
I am taking over
hi, there is 3 months with no activity in this bug
have you guys forgot it ?
Sorry about the wait, always something gets in the way.
It is a rare situation, few people suffer from it...
BTW, did you have a chance to try 2.4.9-21?
i still have the same problem
output from dmesg:
usb.c: registered new driver usbdevfs
usb.c: registered new driver hub

sory, i think my first mensage is a little unclear
i've tried the 2.4.9-21 kernel, but it still not working
4 months and 3 kernel releases after this bug still anoyng me
i've tried the 2.4.9-31 kernel, and the same problem stil happenig
why is this bug taking soo long to be fixed ?
i have some usb devices that cant be used under redhat linux
I saw report about such thing on linux-usb-devel today,
so we may get a better chance on cracking it.
Any news? Had a BIOS update yet?
Iâve the same problem on a pcchips with the same usb chip : sis 7001
I had find very poor information about this topic
although i found a web page :
Where they explain: "basically, at least SiS and OPTi violate the OHCI spec so
they don't init "by the book"".
they propose several patches but I donât know if theyÂ´re compatible with red
hat 7.3 and how I can install them.
Maybe you can understand better than me this topic and help us with this.
The problem is in any computer ( clone: made in house ) with the usb chip sis
7001, especificly pcchips motherboards and unable them to load successfully any
usb device from usb mouse to usb pc-to-pc cables.
Thanks in advance.
Edwin, please file your own bug, re: OPTi.
I don't think I can do anything about this problem.
