USB power problems

Postby dbbolton on Mon Dec 31, 2012 10:22 pm

When I boot Mint, my USB devices do not work for a minute or so after the login screen appears. When I say they don't work, I mean that they don't even appear to be getting power. However, I haven't noticed this problem with Windows. I've tried several devices and they all are affected in a similar manner.

This is the only error message I've seen from the kernel:

Code: Select all
usb 1-2: device descriptor read/64, error -110

I looked up the error code here:

This makes me think it is a hardware issue, but that doesn't explain why the USB devices still work in Windows, or why they work on Linux after a delay.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.
