Description A. Alper ATICI 2002-05-25 07:36:22 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0; Q312461)

Description of problem:

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

How reproducible:

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...	

Additional info:

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.
Comment 2 Michael Fulbright 2002-06-04 11:39:58 EDT
Jeremy is there additonal options you have to give to stop USB modules from loading?
Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2002-06-04 11:56:32 EDT
USB is built into the BOOT kernel.  Arjan, is there a way to get it not probed
like this?
Comment 4 Arjan van de Ven 2002-06-04 14:17:07 EDT
There is no kernel side option;
however the "apic" option might actually fix the USB hang itself :(
Comment 5 Joshua SS Miller 2002-06-06 21:30:42 EDT
linux apic

did not work on the compaq 1215US
Comment 6 Joshua SS Miller 2002-06-25 19:22:11 EDT
Is anyone still working on this issue?  Maybe a optional boot image would be nice?
Comment 7 A. Alper ATICI 2003-05-22 09:53:52 EDT
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).
Comment 8 Alan Cox 2003-06-05 13:54:23 EDT
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.
