curious little usb problem

:? I'm just about finished installing ARCH and I have a curious
     little problem. At boot I was getting this message after the
      mounting file systems section:
               " mount: mount point /proc/bus/usb does not exist ".
     I didn't pay much attention, but when running hwd -s it
     reported I had a usb module available - usb-uhci. Not
     knowing any better I put it in the module section of rc.conf.
     Now I'm also getting:
                "Fatal: module usb-uhci not found"
     after the modules loaded section at boot up. The system
     works ok, sort-of. Anybody know how to fix the usb problem?
     I did have a usb mouse, but I had  to connect to a ps2 port to get
     it to work. Oh well, I still love linux anyway. -Thanks - Larry

Re: curious little usb problem

to have the mount point working edit you fstab, and where it says usbdevfs change it to usbfs (two instances in the same line)

about usb_uhci, i dont know if it is called exactly this way, but it is needed for mouses and keybouards.

What I do is to use hotplug so I forget mainly all modules

Re: curious little usb problem

I personally use such line in /etc/fstab

/dev/sda1       /mnt/usb        vfat    defaults,user,noauto,sync,dirsync
0       0

and then mount /mnt/usb.

That passes without any troubles.

Re: curious little usb problem

big_smile Thanks Pajaro, I changed the usbdefvs to usbfs and the error messages are gone. My mouse still won't work in the usb port, but that might be a set up problem. Again --Thanks for the assistance!!

Plug it in and check the output of dmesg. If it's recognized, it's probably a typo in your X.org config file (I assume it doesn't work in X).

Re: curious little usb problem

If you're not running hotplug, try modprobing the 'usbhid' module (besides [uoe]hci_hcd). My usb mouse doesn't want to work without that, at least.

This fatal error occurs probably because you have wrong entry in rc.conf. AFAIK, it should be uhci_hcd (or ehci or ohci), not usb-uhci. First letter depends on the controller (AFAIR, o/u is for USB 1.1 and e for USB 2.0). You could try to check which one you should use by running hwd -s (outputs wrong one in my case) or by genuine modprobing and rmmoding all of them in given order and checking whether your mouse works (remember about modprobing 'usbhid' afterwards).
