Comment 1 Pete Zaitcev 2001-11-21 13:56:20 EST
The code in ohci did not change, so something is fishy.
I am taking over

Comment 3 Pete Zaitcev 2002-01-25 13:07:52 EST
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?

Comment 7 Pete Zaitcev 2002-03-08 13:00:00 EST
Still puzzled.

I saw report about such thing on linux-usb-devel today,
so we may get a better chance on cracking it.
Comment 8 Pete Zaitcev 2002-11-06 23:38:48 EST
Any news? Had a BIOS update yet?
Comment 9 edwin chávez 2003-01-18 19:35:27 EST
I’ve 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 don’t know if they´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.
Comment 11 Pete Zaitcev 2004-04-19 11:59:01 EDT
