Description of problem:
USB camera worked in RH 7.3, stopped working for 8 and 9 on Asus A7V333, Athlon
XP 1800+ My pen drive does not work also. mount /dev/sda1 returns invalid block
device, and checking of logs for hot plugging reveals no detection of hot
plugging or un-plugging. Hot plugging works on another OS dual-booted for this

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start computer.
2. Plug in USB device.

Actual Results:  Nothing happens.

Expected Results:  Should detect USB devices and enable them to be mounted.

Comment 1 Pete Zaitcev 2003-06-03 03:22:14 UTC
Please attach the dmesg output, taken after an attempt to access the storage
(pen or camera). Please do not drop it into the comments box.

Dmesg out.

Here's dmesg out after plugging in my pen drive.

Comment 3 Pete Zaitcev 2003-06-03 20:49:22 UTC
Thanks, great dmesg.

Please do two things for me.
1. Remove ehci-hcd alias from /etc/modules.conf. I figure, if the camera
   worked before (when we didn't ship ehci-hcd), you should not be using it now.
2. If that fails, update kernel to 2.4.20-18.9. There were issues with usb-uhci.

BTW, the -bigmem kernel is only needed for 16GB boxes. You lose some
performance when running it on a 256MB box. This is not relevant to our
USB problems, just noting in passing.

Comment 4 Ignacio Valdes 2003-06-04 03:37:15 UTC
I took ehci-hcd alias from /etc/modules.conf and upgraded the kernel to
2.4.20-18.9, but there doesn't appear to be a change. mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/foo
yields 'mount: /dev/sda1 is not a valid block device' Thanks -- IV

Comment 5 Pete Zaitcev 2003-06-04 03:43:23 UTC
I'd like to see the dmesg again, taken after an attempt to access /dev/sda
but without ehci. In the firs dmesg ehci-hcd and usb-uhci seems to conflict.
I know that it fails anyway, but it would be something different now.
Please attach it as before. Thanks.

Dmesg out.

New dmesg with new kernel. -- IV

Comment 7 Pete Zaitcev 2003-06-04 16:23:15 UTC
You attached a dmesg for 2.4.20-8, while I asked 2.4.20-18.

Dmesg out for 2.4.20-18.9.

Oops, here you go. -- IV

Comment 9 Pete Zaitcev 2003-06-05 20:26:20 UTC
OK, at least your interrupts are routed right, that's encouraging.
May I see the /proc/bus/usb/devices?

Here you go.

My USB mass storage camera worked in RH 7.2, hangs system in RH9.

Description of problem:
About 15 sec after connecting camera, KDE desktop freezes. Only way to 
recover is turn off power and reboot. 

Same problem in both 2.4.20-13.9smp  and  2.4.20-18.9smp
The camera used to work with RH7.2, kernel 2.4.18-17.7x.

Output from /var/log/messages when the cammera is connected....

dmesg for 2.4.20-18.9smp

Comment 13 andrew 2003-06-11 01:06:22 UTC
The same camera that hangs my RH9 system works with RH8, kernel 2.4.20-18.8 
(the RH8 system is a different computer, not SMP).
Can provide further details if needed.

Comment 14 Pete Zaitcev 2004-08-19 23:25:11 UTC
Ignacio, how are FC1 and/or FC2?

Comment 15 Bugzilla owner 2004-09-30 15:40:55 UTC
Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
