USB Hub boot problem - Mandrake 10.1
Subject: USB Hub boot problem - Mandrake 10.1

I have Mandrake 10.1 running on a PC that can be also booted to Win 98Se &
Win 2K.   Linux boots o.k except when I connect an external USB hub,  then
it locks up after the lines :
Mounting USB Filesystem [OK]
Loading USB Storage [OK]

without the hub connected the next lines are :
Check Root Filesystem   [OK]
Remount Root Filesystem in Read/Write mode   [OK]

If I boot without the hub and connect it later then it is correctly detected
and works, which suggests the device is supported.

The hub is correctly detected at boot by both Win98 and Win2K so I'm sure
it's not a hardware problem.

According to USBView the device is a USB2.0 Hub Controller , device class
09, subclass 01, made by NEC Corporation (it's labelled up as "Tevion").

Any help would be appreciated as remembering to unplug it before rebooting
is getting to be a bit of a pain.

Just a guess, but have you installed the latest updates?  If not, you
are missing out on some 250 important bugfixes and security patches.  

Make sure you have your /urpmi/ sources set up correctly.  MandrakeSoft
has changed names to Mandriva and has recently changed its domain names
as well.  The "Mandrake" URL's are no longer valid now.

As a sidenote, you could also try the current Mandriva LE2005 - also
dubbed 10.2 - which remedies a lot of the problems encountered with
10.1.  LE2005 is the mainstream distro now, and 2006 is already in beta
stage development.

Had a similar experience with 10.0 and a flashcard reader (must say, the

same cardreader also caused XP to BSOD when plugged in) - but when
unplugging the device, the stalled boot process continued without problem -
and the device worked later on, which it did not do on windows.
One cure might be a newer kernel - probably the fix is in the updates.

Thanks for that - I have installed the updates and have sorted out the "new"
Mandriva URLs.    

The problem isn't cured but at least knowing that it's not something simple
is a help.   Looks like LE2005 is the way ahead.

2005 was head and shoulders better than 10.1, in my opinion. I started
with 9.1, and have upgraded as each version became official. I think
Mandrake 2005, was a landmark. For the first time, it was good enough
for the complete layman.

While I suspect that saying such will raise some flack, the versions
before that were for either the person that *likes* tinkering with
computers, or at the least had a good friend that did.

The only reservation I have about 2005, is that you may wish to wait for
2006. It is on the horizon, and you may end up annoyed spending three
weeks getting everything set up the way you want, then being faced with
an upgrade.
