Usb Drives Not Supported With Angstrom On Beagleboard?
« on: July 15, 2010, 04:47:33 am »
Hi all,
I appreciate that this may be a BeagleBoard issue, but  I'm having a small problem getting USB drives to work on a recent Angstom build (from:  http://www.angstrom-distribution.org/demo/...rootfs.tar.bz2)

Whenever I plug in a drive (for example a USB flash drive) I get messages like:

[blockquote][   17.044708] usb 1-1.4: new full speed USB device using musb_hdrcand address3
[   17.162994] usb 1-1.4: not running at top speed; connect to a highspeed hub
[   17.173461] usb 1-1.4: device v090c p1000 is not supported
[   17.179046] usb 1-1.4: New USB device found, idVendor=090c,idProduct=1000
[   17.186004] usb 1-1.4: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2,SerialNumbe0
[   17.193420] usb 1-1.4: Product: USB Flash Disk
[   17.197906] usb 1-1.4: Manufacturer: General[/blockquote]

But obviously the drive is not mounted.  Any ideas on what do here?


As a 'confirmation' of sorts, the same hardware configuration works with an earlier version of Angstrom. (By "works" I mean, mounts the USB drive correctly). The earlier Angstrom is the one referenced here: http://beagleboard.org/demo/esc#esc-100


Thanks in advance!

Usb Drives Not Supported With Angstrom On Beagleboard?

I don't see a line where kernel reports partitions found.

Level 1: Kernel. Kernel detects device insertion, scans for partitions and sends an event to udev.

Level 2: Udev. udev should parse kernel events, create dev /dev/sd?{number} and send event upper

Level 3: udev mount script

Level 4: Advanced desktops don't use udev mount script. but in level 3 udev only sends signal. Desktop daemons (e. g. gvfs volume monitors together with desktop utilities or hal in older distros) ask for mounting if desktop decides to do so.

Something apparently went wrong.

Here is the correct log (on a standard desktop x86_64, but Beagleboard should do similar things).

As you can see, your driver failed to scan the disc and reset happened instead.

It looks like a hardware problem. Try another disk or USB flash. Try to use powered hub. It may be a hardware problem or the device does not reply in time, or it wants too much power to start. I have similar problems with some flash cards from A-Data.

Hi, thanks for the response!
I have to admit that I'm not convinced that it's a hardware problem.  

Using exactly the same hardware config (powered USB 1.0 hub) but an earlier version of Ansgtrom (seems to be:  Angstrom 2009.X-test-20090102 ) it all seems to work fine:

[blockquote]usb 1-1.4: new full speed USB device using musb_hdrc and address 8

Well, then it looks like a kernel or kernel config issue. You can try to ask in the relevant kernel mailing list (hardware specific or linux-usb).
