      Hi,

      I'm running Gentoo with a 2.6 kernel on my old Dell Inspiron 3000. It's
      mostly ok (except for sound but that's a lower priority issue) but for
      USB. I'm able to see the USB controller:


      $ cat /proc/bus/usb/devices

      T: Bus=01 Lev=00 Prnt=00 Port=00 Cnt=00 Dev#= 1 Spd=12 MxCh= 2
      B: Alloc= 0/900 us ( 0%), #Int= 0, #Iso= 0
      D: Ver= 1.10 Cls=09(hub ) Sub=00 Prot=00 MxPS= 8 #Cfgs= 1
      P: Vendor=0000 ProdID=0000 Rev= 2.06
      S: Manufacturer=Linux 2.6.9-gentoo-r8 uhci_hcd
      S: Product=Intel Corp. 82371AB/EB/MB PIIX4 USB
      S: SerialNumber=0000:00:01.2
      C:* #Ifs= 1 Cfg#= 1 Atr=c0 MxPwr= 0mA
      I: If#= 0 Alt= 0 #EPs= 1 Cls=09(hub ) Sub=00 Prot=00 Driver=hub
      E: Ad=81(I) Atr=03(Int.) MxPS= 2 Ivl=255ms

      but nothing changes when I plug anything into the USB socket.

      Here is the output of lsusb:

      # lsusb
      Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000

      Any suggestions?

      Thanks,
      Michael

          run 'dmesg' after plugging in a USB device to see what your system is saying.
