    boot.local && other boot problems


    Alright so I get my IDE working right now on to USB... It works preety much hassle free EXCEPT when I first turn the system on from a complete power down or if I reboot it and it runs the POST... it doesn't recognize it... I've played with some stuff in the bios relating to APM and other stuff but it doesn't help. once the system boots, I have to issue a shutdown -r now in order to use my mouse or joypad...

    Has anyone encountered simlar issues with USB (or another onBoard controller)????

    I added the following hdparm commands to my boot.local - interstingly enough when I start the system from a powerdown it boots no problem - when I issue a shutdown -r now command to get the mouse and stuff working the system hangs when executing boot.local - according the /var/log/messeges, which Suse has running on TTy10 during boot, it says that DMA modes are unavailable (2, 3, 4, 5) or something VERY CLOSE to that. it says it twice relating to ide1 which are my cdrOM and RW drives.

    OK, I take it that your mouse and joypad are USB. Well, check what modules are loaded at boot. At least input, mousedev, joydev, usbcore, uhci and hid should be loaded (unless you have compiled any of their functionality straight into the kernel, that is).

    Here are the results of the lsmod command... the modules are loded at boot... keep in mind that the functionality is there but I have to boot the systm up and then reboot it to utilize it.

    As far as I can see here, it actually _is_ using your mouse. What is the problem exactly? Moving the mouse doesn't move your pointer?

    booting

    OK - when I boot the system from an initial power-on the system boots fine but doesn't detect ANY (printer, webcam, mouse, or joypad) USB devices... I have to let it fully start and then reboot in order to get it to recognize the devices...

    I don't know... since it works when you reboot, I just can't really think of anything but hardware failure. There might be something creepy in the kernel's USB code - try checking at the Linux Kernel Mailing List at http://vger.kernel.org/.
