I'm trying to use USB devices on my Alphastation 200.
I've got a PCI<->USB adapter card, which seems to be detected correctly:
> ohci0 at pci0 dev 12 function 0: Opti RM861HA (rev. 0x03)
> ohci0: interrupting at isa irq 10
> ohci0: OHCI version 1.0, legacy support
> usb0 at ohci0
> uhub0 at usb0
> uhub0: Opti OHCI root hub, class 9/0, rev 1.00/1.00, addr 1
> uhub0: 2 ports with 2 removable, self powered
Then I start usbd and connect a device:
> alpha:~# usbd -d -v
> usbd: opening /dev/usb0
> usbd: doing discovery on /dev/usb0
That was it.
usbd is now stuck in D-state and cannot be killed anymore.
> alpha:~$ ps axl
> UID PID PPID CPU PRI NI VSZ RSS WCHAN STAT TT TIME COMMAND
> 0 525 512 0 -6 0 112 704 usbsyn D+ p0 0:00.05 usbd
Does it work for other people on alpha machines?
