    USB hid-input

    After I bootup and run dmesg, I receive this error (if it actually is one) at the bottom of dmesg:

    drivers/usb/input/hid-input.c: event field not found
    drivers/usb/input/hid-input.c: event field not found

    It occurs twice, I believe, because I have two USB hubs. I'm not sure if this is the reason I can't get any of my usb "stuff" to work AFTER boot, but, it seems like the only lead I have. Does anybody know anything about this message? I can't find anything on the web.

    Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

    In my dmesg:
    input: USB HID v1.10 Mouse [Logitech USB Receiver] on usb-0000:00:10.0-1.2.4
    drivers/usb/input/hid-input.c: event field not found
    (I have a Logitech mouse hooked via USB2 hub which is itself connected to a usb kvm switch)
    Then at the last line:
    input: USB HID v1.10 Mouse [Logitech USB Receiver] on usb-0000:00:10.0-1.2.4
    And the mouse has always worked when I get into the desktop.
    And my kernel config for the usb mice,etc:
    # USB support
    #
    CONFIG_USB=y
    # CONFIG_USB_DEBUG is not set

    #
    # Miscellaneous USB options
    #
    CONFIG_USB_DEVICEFS=y
    # CONFIG_USB_BANDWIDTH is not set
    # CONFIG_USB_DYNAMIC_MINORS is not set
    # CONFIG_USB_SUSPEND is not set
    # CONFIG_USB_OTG is not set

    #
    # USB Host Controller Drivers
    #
    CONFIG_USB_EHCI_HCD=y
    # CONFIG_USB_EHCI_SPLIT_ISO is not set
    # CONFIG_USB_EHCI_ROOT_HUB_TT is not set
    CONFIG_USB_OHCI_HCD=y
    CONFIG_USB_UHCI_HCD=y

    # USB Human Interface Devices (HID)
    #
    CONFIG_USB_HID=y
    CONFIG_USB_HIDINPUT=y
    # CONFIG_HID_FF is not set
    CONFIG_USB_HIDDEV=y

    Will it work if it directly plugged into the motherboard sockets? And is it a powered hub?

    Well, the mice & keyboard work - but they're plugged in right from the beginning. (The mouse is plugged into one of the hubs. The keyboard is plugged into the back of the computer.)

    It just seems that AFTER I boot into my system, I cannot get anything new to be recognized on my system's USB drives and I'm following the *same* exact procedure as I do on my laptop. (Heck, except for a few minor things, the kernels are almost the same.)


    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    hmm...

    Are you using udev/hotplug all that stuff?
    Can root access your usb stuff?

    Yes, I am using udev. I have hotplug base installed, but I uninstalled hotplug (either way, I get the same error).

    I'm not sure how to test if root can access.

    yeah...

    Is plug-and-play disabled in BIOS?
    Who is assigning IRQ's? Should be the BIOS.
    Lots more ideas coming...post back

    No...I never touch the BIOS, so everything should be fine there. I'm not exactly sure how to test this, but...things *should* be okay.

    Thanks for your help. Haha...you definitely know what you're talking about. (I have no clue what could be wrong.) Any other suggestions?

    Well, I originally had hotplug emerged, but this problem still seemed to occur. I'll give it another shot and see what comes up. I'll post back in a bit.

    Okay, here's one of the messages I get after I emerge hotplug...

    * WARNING: The hotplug init script is now gone (dead and burried.)
    * WARNING: If you want to load modules for hardware that was already
    * WARNING: discovered at boot time, like the old hotplug init script
    * WARNING: did, then emerge the coldplug package, and add coldplug to
    * WARNING: a runlevel, e.g. # rc-update add coldplug boot

    * WARNING: All firmware loaded by the hotplug scripts needs to be
    * WARNING: moved to the /lib/firmware directory, as the scripts now
    * WARNING: expect it to be in that location.

    * If you still have the file /etc/hotplug/isapnp.rc on your system,
    * please delete it by hand, the file /etc/hotplug/pnp.rc superseeds it.
    I don't know if that has anything to do with anything. I have tried emerging coldplug as well. But, I don't think that solved any problems.

    BTW - /etc/init.d/hotplug script still exists. Is it actually doing anything, though? I'm not sure what this message means.

    I just rebooted -- still get the messages...

    Hm. Maybe it doesn't matter that I'm getting this message. I plugged in my USB Thumb Drive, and I get this message back via dmesg...

    usb 2-1: new full speed USB device using address 2

    So, I guess the hubs recognize things going in. Now...to figure out how to get my system to actually create a spot for this drive. Hmmm...


    BTW - This is w/out coldplug/hotplug or anything else like that installed. I don't know if it makes a difference one way or another.

    Got this?


    Input device support --->
    <*> Event interface

    USB support --->
    <*> USB Human Interface Device (full HID) support[*] HID input layer support

    Oh yeah...and I think you MUST have hotplug nabled at boot runlevel. I've never seen those errors though...

    Oooooooooo...

    That seems to have helped. I didn't have the "Event Interface" support provided. Now, when I plug in my USB Thumb Drive, I get this message --

    usb 2-1: new full speed USB device using address 2
    scsi0 : SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices
    Vendor: Model: USB DISK 20X Rev: PMAP
    Type: Direct-Access ANSI SCSI revision: 02
    SCSI device sda: 487424 512-byte hdwr sectors (250 MB)
    sda: assuming Write Enabled
    sda: assuming drive cache: write through
    sda: sda1
    Attached scsi removable disk sda at scsi0, channel 0, id 0, lun 0
    Attached scsi generic sg0 at scsi0, channel 0, id 0, lun 0, type 0
    USB Mass Storage device found at 2
    So, I'm guessing I can get to this by editing fstab and the having it mount sda1? But, isn't UDEV supposed to have everything always go to the same place each time? (Will it *always* be sda1?)

    Thanks for your help, je_fro. I've been working on this problem for so long. I appreciate your help.

    Okay, well, I now can use/access the drive. I'm still curious about UDEV - but I don't want to break anything in the process. (It's happened before.)

    Anyway, here's a good guide for people who are interested.
