Update 3 USB Crashes on launch

Post by danwood »

I posted this on Amigaworld.net too, but just installed Update 3 and now my machine crashes every time I plug my keyboard in:

It did work briefly for a minute after a reboot but then the crash happened again. I've tried rebooting without keyboard plugged in and the system is fine, but as soon as it's plugged back in, same crash.

I have an A1XE, I use an Apple slimline keyboard. Any ideas?

Let's take this one step at a time then.

As the AmigaOne doesn't have EHCI hardware, I assume you have a PCI card, what type/chip does it use?

Secondly, does your keyboard work OK if plugged in to one of the OHCI ports?

Hi Rigo, thanks for the prompt reply

Yes I use a PCI Card, it's not got a brand on it but the chip is a VIA VT6212L

My on-board ports seemed to stop working a few years back, that's what prompted the purchase of the card which has worked fine since.

I've tried attaching the Dell keyboard from my Windows PC and that seems to work fine, so seems to be a conflict with the Apple keyboard?

Hmm, well, I don't own an Apple keyboard, so I can't test that here, but I know there are a few people on here that do, so it might be best to see what others find when they install update 3.

It might be a problem with the USB card, many chip vendors supply errata due to their buggy chip designs :/

Is there any simple way to revert to the Update 2 USB driver in the mean time?

You could simply remove the ehci driver from your kicklayout, that should do it.

Unfortunately my system won't boot at all without the file:

You need to edit the sys:kickstart/kiclayout file

here you need to find the line where 'MODULE Kickstart/ehci.usbhcd' is

when you found that you put a ';' at the begining of the line, this will stop the loader from loading the file.
