lsusb hangs [SOLVED]

Postby Verlager on Sat Jun 14, 2008 12:16 pm

I was trying to get my Plextor ConvertX PX-TV402U to work with LM Elyssa and I accidently borked my system. Now, when I type lsusb or sudo lsusb the terminal window hangs. Control-C ^C will not stop the process.

How can I get the lsusb command to work again?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

It could be either the terminal or the USB subsystem that is the problem
I guess the terminal - try to reinstall it (use synaptic)
But of course make a hard reboot first (shut down and let it be turned off a couple of minutes before starting up again)

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

The problem is not the terminal. Every other valid command works, lspci, etc. But a hard reboot solved the problem. Thank you, Husse!
