Actual Results:  USB modules not loaded, USB devices fail

Expected Results:  USB modules load, USB devices work

controller and Intel MO810E motherboard
Comment 1 Peter Surda 2002-01-08 13:27:45 EST
same here. I have a USB mouse and the alias line wasn't added into 
modules.conf at install time (though during the install the USB mouse worked, at 
least I think, I have a PS/2 touchpad and a USB mouse). After I added it, 
everything worked fine.
Comment 2 Seth Vidal 2002-01-13 14:36:36 EST
ditto here. I can reproduce it on about 50-70 machines anytime you'd like to see it.

Comment 3 Michael Fulbright 2002-01-15 16:13:10 EST
This should be handled by kudzu in the post-install.
Comment 4 Seth Vidal 2002-01-15 16:29:21 EST
the problem is this.

when the system boots the first time after the install kudzu runs and says
"you've  removed your usb-mouse" or whatever.

I've booted it into single user mode before in this situation and looked at
/etc/modules.conf and alias usb-controller usb-uchi is not in there.

so I figured it was anaconda not kudzu.

but whatever its still not working right :)

Comment 5 Pavel Roskin 2002-12-17 16:56:09 EST
I can reproduce this on Red Hat 8.0 (install over FTP). The USB mouse works
while the installer is running, but stops working after the first reboot.  The
system has an Intel motherboard and works with uhci and usb-uhci drivers.
Adding "alias usb-controller uhci" to /etc/modules.conf fixes the problem.

Does this persist with Phoebe?
