    Flashdrive lock up PC


    Using dual boot Wxp / MDK 10.0 on Plll. The flashdrive works fine in Wxp but upon insertion in MDK 10.0 the PC freezes and am unable to recover without hard boot. Kernel is 2.6.3 and onboard USB is the Intel 82801AB 810 chipset with UHCI controller. This is NOT a hi-speed USB mainboard.

    This is part of the output of dmesg:

    rivers/usb/core/usb.c: registered new driver usbfs
    drivers/usb/core/usb.c: registered new driver hub
    drivers/usb/host/uhci-hcd.c: USB Universal Host Controller Interface driver v2.1
    uhci_hcd 0000:00:1f.2: UHCI Host Controller
    PCI: Setting latency timer of device 0000:00:1f.2 to 64
    uhci_hcd 0000:00:1f.2: irq 3, io base 0000e000
    uhci_hcd 0000:00:1f.2: new USB bus registered, assigned bus number 1
    hub 1-0:1.0: USB hub found
    hub 1-0:1.0: 2 ports detected

    I thought maybe MDK was trying to use 2.0 drivers on an old MB. Also Intel does not provide dwnlds for USB1.1.

    Any ideas?
    Thanks

    2.0 is 1.1 compatible; I knew SuSE 9.2 had problems with USB drives (lockups and stuff), and I noticed my Kanotix 2005-2 (kernel 2.6.11) had the same problem...

    Still, my Minislack, with a 2.6.11 kernel also, has not had any problems up till know. Maybe a problem that keeps coming up in the 2.6 series?

    flashdrive lockup "solved"

    OK, decided to insert flashdrive before boot. Hdwr config utility found it.....added it to fstab, all seems well, although boot screen displays following message:

    line 6 in fstab is bad

    otherwise OK
