  1. USB PCI Card problem

    Hello,

    I'm having a problem with a 5 port USB PCI card I've installed in my
    computer.

    I have a Bluetooth dongle (which works when plugged into a different
    card) which appears to be recognized as in the following output from
    dmesg:

    Bluetooth: Core ver 2.11
    Bluetooth: HCI device and connection manager initialized
    Bluetooth: HCI socket layer initialized
    Bluetooth: L2CAP ver 2.8
    Bluetooth: L2CAP socket layer initialized
    Bluetooth: RFCOMM socket layer initialized
    Bluetooth: RFCOMM TTY layer initialized
    Bluetooth: RFCOMM ver 1.8
    Bluetooth: HIDP (Human Interface Emulation) ver 1.2

    but doesn't actually work (it is not detected by any programs hcitool
    etc). Further, if I plug in my phone, it receives power but its flash
    drive is not automounted like it would be if I used a different port. It
    does work if mounted manually, which leads me to believe there should be
    a simple solution. Also when I plugged a mouse into this card, it did not
    work either despite being recognised:

    input: Logitech Optical USB Mouse as /class/input/input8
    input: USB HID v1.10 Mouse [Logitech Optical USB Mouse] on
    usb-0000:00:10.1-1

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    2.6.21-1.3228.fc7

    You've neglected to say what card and to provide lspci output for it (-n & -v
    will both help). Also, kernel log excerpts may be helpful.

    Missing uhci-hcd? Missing ohci-hcd? Partially unsupported card?

    > 2.6.21-1.3228.fc7


    Is that really 2.6.21 or is it a 2.6.22 development snapshot?

    The kernel is that which was updated from Fedora official Yum

    VIA-based USB PCI card. I have one such card here: it has the same PCI IDs
    and, so far, I've had no problems with it. The scrap of paper on which the
    specification is printed appears to be saying that it's really a 4-port card
    with one of the external ports duplicated for internal connection.

    That'll be the on-board USB. It may be relevant that it is *also* VIA and,
    according to your "lspci -n" output, is identical; the fact that it appears
    as four USB 1.1 controllers tells me that eight ports are (or should be)
    available, though whether they're all wired up or even have headers on the
    board... :-)

    I should mention that my USB card is attached to an Intel-based board
    (PIIX4); I have no idea whether this is relevant. However, you could try the
    card in another PCI slot (though I don't really expect that to make any
    difference) or another computer or two if you can (ideally, one of them with
    a different, non-VIA, on-board USB controller chip, or no USB at all).

    Which doesn't answer the question. However, if it *is* a .22 dev snapshot
    (this is known to happen in FC bleeding edge), you should try plain
    2.6.21(.5) or 2.6.22(.1) in case of something in the snapshot which is
    interfering.
