USB-2.0 Test Code

Contributed by jose on from the hopeful-patches dept.

Nathan Binkert has posted some diffs for USB 2.0 for people to test. By testing them, you can help find the bugs and get them fixed before any code gets checked into the kernel. You also speed up the commit process.

Subject:  USB host controller diffs
From:     Nathan Binkert

I've imported a bunch of host controller fixes and support for USB 2.0
from NetBSD.  I would appreciate it if as many people as possible would
test this out, and report their successes/failures to me.  (With dmesg)

Testing includes testing whatever devices you have, in addition to
plugging in and removing devices to make sure that things work properly.

I would especially like to see tests on non i386 architectures.

The diff is at



So have at it with your development boxes, and see what you find!

      I have firewire active. What is the problem?

        do you have any docs as to how you got firewire active?

        1. By Peter Hessler () on

          Run current. Works there. (at least on my macppc arch. No firewire on my i386 system, so I can't tell you about that)

            tdeval@ has got firewire disk devices (a disk drive, and a cd-rom burner) to work during the LSM. His code still needs to be polished, and a few rough edges to be cleaned, but this will be commited to -current soon.

            So yes, work is happening on this area. Really.

        What will be really cool is when they get IP-over-(you name the medium) working.

        search on
        Start work on IP-over-FireWire and IP-over-SCSI
