    Hotplug stops working


    Hello everyone,

    I'm running Arch Linux on kernel 2.6.19.1, and the first few times I plug in my iPod or another USB device, it is detected just fine (dmesg output, mountable, etc). However, after a few tries, no USB device I plug is detected (no dmesg output). Any idea how I can solve this issue?

    Thanks!

    Alright, so I think it's time I bump this sucker. Maybe more information will make answering easier...

    Yes, I have USB and hotplug support in my kernel. It's all compiled into the kernel. (The only modules I use are ndiswrapper, nvidia, and various sound modules)

    /proc/sys/kernel/hotplug exists and is empty (whether or not the devices are detected)

    ksuspend_usbd is running.

    The problem is very random; sometimes I'll boot up and hotplugging doesn't work at all; sometimes it takes a few days.

    Any hints would be great. Thanks!
