Description Kris Moore 2008-10-07 16:50:01 UTC
On this motherboard, whenever we bootup and have any device plugged into a USB port, the usb driver hangs, and eventually ends up disabling the entire USB port. The curious thing is that if we unplug all the devices, bootup, and then plug them in, they work just fine. I've tried it with USB mice, printers and memory sticks, in all the various USB ports, the result is always the same. This error ends up being thrown:

uhub3: device problem (TIMEOUT), disabling port 1

I'm attaching the dmesg from this system, let me know if more info is needed.

Fix: If you unplug all USB devices, bootup and then plug them in after the system is loaded, they work just fine. However, this is a total pain on a desktop with a USB printer / USB mouse :)

Patch attached with submission follows:
How-To-Repeat: Simply plug-in any USB device, and bootup. The usb driver will eventually timeout during the kernel load, and disable the entire USB port.

Mine is the same problem as Kris with PC-BSD,  which it does not detect 
the USB Mouse.

When installing PC-BSD,  the USB Mouse does not get detected and you 
have to change it to another port for it to work to move around the 
install with the mouse.

And when booting into PC-BSD,  the same thing happens again that you 
have to change it to another port for it to work again.

The Motherboard is a Gigabyte AM2 GA-MA69GM-S2H with a Logitech MX 510 
USB Mouse.

Same motherboard (GA-MA69GM-S2H), same problem. Bootup with plugged USB
printer (Minolta) and mouse generates disabling usb port. :(

Here is a link with patch to a similar issue on linux. Will a similar
solution work?


It looks like broken hardware that we must kludge around, again.

The only thing I can add is that the front mounted usb port connected
with old, unshielded cables (which should prevent it using USB2) does
work with devices connected to it at boot.
