disable specific USB port

Post by rogeiro » Fri Feb 16, 2018 8:09 pm

Hello, I am encountering errors in the boot that causes a delay in the initialization, I imagine that if the OS ignores this port, my initialization will be better.

thanks.

ps: this continues after this change:
lsusb -t
echo "usb6" > /sys/bus/usb/drivers/usb/unbind
reboot

part of dmesg:

[12212.776165] usb 6-2: new full-speed USB device number 105 using uhci_hcd

I doubt very much that your machine is taking over three hours to boot.

Please post the output of this terminal command:

Code: Select all

inxi -Fxz
Enclose the results in code markers "</>", which you can select from the mini toolbar above the textbox where you type your reply.

Also post the output of this, inside code markers:

That's where you're losing speed.

You can save 6 seconds with this command:

systemctl disable NetworkManager-wait-online.service

I don't know about openvpn@client.service. It might be something you've installed. If you can stop that from trying to start too early you can save another 1m30s.

thanks, but...

it is visible the delay during the error messages, it repeats several times the USB port error 6-2 ...

Thanks for the information, but, I believe that disabling this door would return to normal.

The problem error appears to occur most often with USB Cam.

Bugzilla report on the device descriptor read/64, error -71 - USB error:

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+sour ... ug/1565292

Some older posts at ubuntu including some mitigation recommendations (read the entire post before you try any).

https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=797789

I would suggest you also try the 4.13 Kernel, as the 4.10 Kernel is no longer receiving patches/updates.

Check your BIOS settings and see if you can disable the integrated Webcam for a test.
