Problems with IRQ and USB !
I'm Chaker from Tunisia.
I have a Packard Bell laptop and have issues with linux on it.
First, I constated that USB ports does not work at all. After some Googling, I made it work with booting with the option : acpi=off . ==> however my network card stoped working because it is configured on the irq 19 wich is inaccessible in this mode.
I have tried so many things... I don't know what to do with and I wanted to have linux on my laptop so much !!
Noticing that every thing worked perfectly on Windows : under Windows the four usb devices (the hub and theree ports) are in the IRQ 21, but under linux they are in four IRQs : 5, 7, 10 and 11.
(the pics are too tiny, maybe you'r gona have to download them and zoom)
If it is possible I would like to put the same value of the IRQ in linux as in Windows. If you have any questions about my hardware don't hesitate.
Thank you and see you.
