Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
I boot from Valhalla CD#1, enter "linux nousb" at the prompt,
and this is what I get last on screen:
usb.c : registered new driver usbdevfs
usb.c : registered new driver hub
usb-uhci.c : $Revision: 1.275 $ time 06:55:51 Apr 18 2002
usb-uhci.c : High bandwidth mode enabled
usb-uhci.c : USB UHCI at I/O 0x1800, IRQ 5
usb-uhci.c : Detected 2 ports
usb.c : new USB bus registered, assigned bus number 1
and then freeze...
Adding noprobe and/or nousbstorage makes no difference at all.
I used to install Seawolf successfully on this notebook by entering
"linux nousb" at the boot prompt.
same on Compaq Presario 1215US, used to use nousb or noauto for kernel params.
Jeremy is there additonal options you have to give to stop USB modules from loading?
USB is built into the BOOT kernel. Arjan, is there a way to get it not probed
There is no kernel side option;
however the "apic" option might actually fix the USB hang itself :(
did not work on the compaq 1215US
Is anyone still working on this issue? Maybe a optional boot image would be nice?
Hey, long time... but the core problem (i.e. modprobe hangs in rc.sysinit)
I've figured out a solution: Enabling ACPI in kernel resolves this issue (make
sure it's not overridden by apm).
A "nousb" option did arrive later on (eg in RH9)

I have to correct: this notebook does not have Radeon IGP. It has Rage Mobility
M1, Via VT82C686A south (almost 2 years old).
I have to clarify: I do know about "nousb" option, but don't fancy for it as
I'd get a system without usb support.
