Description Ben Levenson 2002-03-20 22:59:56 EST
Description of Problem:
the following errors appear in messages and during boot:
test108 modprobe: Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module 
        parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters
test108 modprobe: /lib/modules/2.4.18-0.4smp/kernel/drivers/usb/usb-uhci.o:
        insmod /lib/modules/2.4.18-0.4smp/kernel/drivers/usb/usb-uhci.o failed
test108 modprobe: /lib/modules/2.4.18-0.4smp/kernel/drivers/usb/usb-uhci.o:
        insmod usb-uhci failed
test108 rc.sysinit: Initializing USB controller (usb-uhci):  failed

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How Reproducible:

Additional Information:
from lspci -v:

00:02.2 USB Controller: Intel Corp. 82371AB PIIX4 USB (rev 01) (prog-if 00 [UHCI])
        Flags: medium devsel
        I/O ports at 1020 [size=32]

Also, I can't find any USB ports on the box, and no mention of USB in the 
BIOS settings.

linux-up does weird things in it's own way:
  usb.c: registered new driver usbdevfs
  usb.c: registered new driver hub
  usb-uhci.c: $Revision: 1.275 $ time 10:41:31 Mar 13 2002
  usb-uhci.c: High bandwidth mode enabled
  usb-uhci.c: USB UHCI at I/O 0x1020, IRQ 5
  usb-uhci.c: Detected 2 ports
  usb.c: new USB bus registered, assigned bus number 1
  hub.c: USB hub found
  usb-uhci.c: interrupt, status 2, frame# 30
  usb-uhci.c: Host controller halted, trying to restart.
   <message repeated 4 more times>
  usb-uhci.c: v1.275:USB Universal Host Controller Interface driver
  usb-uhci.c: Host controller halted, trying to restart.
   <message repeated 6 more times>

Each time the system is booted with linux-up, kudzu re-detects/configures
the USB device.
Comment 1 Pete Zaitcev 2002-03-23 01:14:11 EST
That's a super broken box.
BTW, observe that lspci sees no IRQ, while the driver fetches IRQ 5
from the *pci_dev.

I suggest adding "nousb" to the command line. If kudzu keeps
bouncing after that, take if up with the kudzu owner as well.
Comment 2 Alan Cox 2002-03-25 18:08:24 EST
Looks like the vendor never fitted USB to the machine but forgot to set the bits
to disable the port in the BIOS. We correctly detect the hardware, we assign an
IRQ thinking the BIOS is PnP mode and as you'd expect the hardware then finds
that the USB link isnt working too well 

Moved to kudzu - Im curious why kudzu doesnt just decide it exists and be done
with it, or decided its horked and settle it for once

RHL7 is end of life, but this bug might still be interesting if its repeatable
with modern distros. Can you find out if this is fixed in latest Fedora release?
Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2005-02-04 17:56:16 EST
Closing out bugs on older, no longer supported releases. Apologies for any lack
of response. Please attempt to confirm with more recent releases.
