Description of problem:
Using RH9 clean install on Asus A7V333-X mobo with Athlon XP2600+ processor.
The motherboard has three USB 2.0 hubs on it. All three appear to be
initialised correctly, but only one appears to work at any time. After
rebooting, the working hub will not necessarily be the same one. the other two
hubs give "USB device not accepting new address" errors.
The same problem occurs on the 3 USB devices I have: a 128MB USB memory stick,
an HP 315 camera, and a Trust Micro Mouse.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Connect USB device to one of the 3 on-board hubs
Actual Results: Only one hub works - it appears to be random on each boot.
Expected Results: All three should work.

Kernel messages, interrupt and PCI config data
Just tried home-compiled kernel-2.4.21-rc1-ac3. The "usb_control/bulk_msg:
timeout" errors in the earlier attachment do not appear to be present from
limited testing, but the main problem is still there.
Try to remove ehci-hcd from /etc/modules.conf.
The "kill ehci-hcd" suggestion still stands, plus I'd like a report on
the 2.4.20-18. Thanks.
Using kernel 2.4.20-18.9, only the hub connected to the front USB ports appears
to have this problem; the other 2 hubs work OK. On investigating, this is also
true of 2.4.20-13.9.
IIRC, the front hub used to work intermittently with the earlier kernels, so I
don't believe it's a hardware problem.
Removing the ehci-hcd line from modules.conf makes no difference.

Kernel 2.4.22-pre6-ac1 log with verbose USB error reporting
I have just repeated this test with kernel 2.4.22-pre6-ac1, having set verbose
USB error reporting at compile time. Results attached. It now appears to be the
same (front panel) hub reporting this problem at all times, so earlier comment
about random hub may be unrelated.
Bug closed. Signal wires to header on motherboard transposed - a hardware problem.
