USB input devices fail on 6.10 release after working for a while.

Asked by αlexander on 2006-10-28

System: Toshiba Satellite M105 Laptop
OS: Ubuntu 6.10 release, no major extensions except for the SUN jre. System was _upgraded_ from 6.06 this morning.

Symptoms: USB mice work at boot and after Gnome has finished loading. They continue to work for some period of time between 10 and 40 minutes, then all USB ports fail simultaneously. Devices that are plugged in at the time of failure appear to continue to receive power from the hardware. Devices that are plugged in after the failure don't receive power.
The laptop's touch pad continues to work throughout.

Rebooting solves the problem temporarily. I guess I should mention that both mice I've tried are labeled as Microsoft hardware, but USB is USB right?

Nicolas DERIVE (kalon33) said : #1

Is it linked with bug #62181 ?

αlexander (alexander-shusta) said : #2

There are some strong similarities between the two bugs. I would venture that they may be correlated.

After looking at the request for a dump from dmesg in the other bug, I thought I'd go ahead and capture any messages from the kernel that I could. The last few lines of the file looked interesting - I guess the mouse was detected properly, but I doubt that ACPI is doing much with the USB bus. Anyhow, the text from the dump is pasted in below for anyone who's curious.

αlexander (alexander-shusta) said : #3

Just a quick note that a system wipe & reinstall didn't fix the problem, so I'm going to say thta this isn't related to the upgrade process.

Guess I'll go read the USB subsystem docs and see where the error files would be stored.

Best αlexander (alexander-shusta) said : #4

I think I found a resolution. The bug appears to be related to the generally poor support for USB devices that appeared in kernel 2.6. I.e. it's not Ubuntu specific. And I found a workaround, using the noapic boot parameter.

To use the noapic boot parameter:
$ sudo cp /boot/grub/menu.lst /boot/grub/menu.lst.bk
$ sudo gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst

In Gedit, scroll to the bottom of the file, you're going to change the generic boot option to include the "noapic" argument. In my case the generic boot option became:
## ## End Default Options ##

title Ubuntu, kernel 2.6.17-10-generic
root (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.17-10-generic root=/dev/sda1 ro quiet noapic splash
initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.17-10-generic
quiet
savedefault
boot
... other boot modes ...
Note that some users of the kernel mention also adding the "acpi=off" parameter as well as "noapic" In my case just adding "noapic" seems to have solved the problem.

unfortunately noapic may conflict with other pci peripherals as wireless cards :( I'm still searching for a final solution...

acpi=force irqpoll seems to work...
 to add it to all of your kernel entry, open /boot/grub/menu.lst

scroll until you find defoptions=
and append

acpi=force irqpoll

save, quit and the run

sudo update-grub

reboot and enjoy the fix (let's hope it's a final one!)

Thanks A LOT NoWhereMan!!!!!! I have been looking for this answer for weeks and it has been working great for me so far.

hbernard (hbernard) said : #8

planning my upgrade, I wonder if this is fixed in gutsy's kernel ?

my laptop has this problem, the boot option hack works fine, but I found the system less reliable than other ubuntu installation (one or two freeze by month) and I wonder if this is linked against the acpi=force hint...
