USB crashes

Recommended Posts

OK, try disabling ipv6 on your machine by adding:

 

alias net-pf-10 off

 

to /etc/modprobe.conf and restarting your machine. You should then have network connectivity when you use the noapic parameter when booting. I've heard of this before with Realtek cards and this normally does the trick.

I added the option on a new line in the modprobe.conf, this is how it looks now:

[jethro@dhcppc2 ~]$ cat /etc/modprobe.conf
remove snd-hda-intel /sbin/modprobe -r snd-pcm-oss; /sbin/modprobe --first-time -r --ignore-remove snd-hda-intel
install snd-hda-intel /sbin/modprobe --first-time --ignore-install snd-hda-intel && { /sbin/modprobe snd-pcm-oss; /bin/true; }
alias eth0 8139too
alias sound-slot-0 snd-hda-intel
install scsi_hostadapter /sbin/modprobe sata_sil; /bin/true
install usb-interface /sbin/modprobe ohci-hcd; /sbin/modprobe ehci-hcd; /bin/true
remove unknown /sbin/modprobe --first-time -r --ignore-remove unknown
install unknown /sbin/modprobe --first-time --ignore-install unknown
remove snd-atiixp /sbin/modprobe --first-time -r --ignore-remove snd-atiixp
install snd-atiixp /sbin/modprobe --first-time --ignore-install snd-atiixp
options snd-hda-intel position_fix=1
alias net-pf-10 off

It doesn't make a difference, when I boot with noapic, my network is still down. Did I do something wrong?

I've just updated to KDE 3.5.2, perhaps that does the trick. I'm going to test it today. Does any body else has any more ideas? Perhaps on how making my network card working with no apic?

No, you didn't do anything wrong, the line is configured correctly now. Strange that the noapic does cause your card to fail, although I have seen this happen before too.

 

Hope it's working for you now since the upgrade. Let us know.

The problem still remains the same, the usb port still crashes after a few minutes of use. Does anybody have any more ideas I can try?

No immediate idea but perhaps a Kernel upgrade might help. :unsure: Check the advisories forum section.

I already thought of the kernel update, so indeed I am running the last one. There must be something I can do. Can it be a KDM issue?

Apr 11 08:14:22 laptop ntpd[4035]: synchronized to LOCAL(0), stratum=10

Apr 11 08:14:22 laptop ntpd[4035]: kernel time sync disabled 0041

 

Looking at the last two lines of the /var/log/ looks like that ntpd is having a problem not the USB there..

 

Look further up the /var/log/messages file.

 

If you think it is the NTP that is causing it either try a different time server or switch it off to start with..

 

Are you getting any other weird messages....

I switched of the NTP thing, but I can't imanging this having anything to do with the USB do you?

 

Perhaps it is usefull that I post all the messages I get when booting. What I mean is those lines with "[ OK ]" or [ FAILED ]" behing it when you are starting your PC. I noticed that there are some error messages in between those lines. Do you know where I can find those lines after booting? Perhaps there is some kind of startup log somewhere? I know that there are a few error messages in there which might come in handy.

as soon a the mouse and other devices die..

 

go to a terminal and get like the last 50 lines of the messages file.

 

tail -n50 /var/log/messages > myfailure.txt

 

Then post those lines from the myfailure file that may capture enough for it..

Here is what the /var/log/messages file says right after an USB crash:

I do not think the right error message is in here, do you?

Looks like its in German.. I will try..

 

Apr 28 07:35:16 laptop kernel: ACPI-0286: *** Error: No installed handler for fixed event [00000000]

 

This looks like the only hardware - Software error.. Was this around the time the USB died..

 

If so try disabling ACPI..

 

I know you are running a laptop so you may not want to do that?

That error occured a few minutes before the USB crashed. If I turn that off I think my battery monitor will not work anymore... If the erros isn't in this place, then where can it be?
