Hi-

Are your USB drivers built as modules? Could they have
been auto-removed?

Can you try 2.3.34 or 2.3.35-pre-patchX to see if it gives
you the same results?

(more below)

A question tangential to this...
I have a machine with a USB (Logitech) mouse plugged into a M$ usb
keyboard
plugged into a Dell. It is running dual boot RH 6.0 with kernel 2.3.33 (usb
enabled) and Win98. For RH to work with the keyboard I needed to plug it
into
the mouse PS/2 port and USB (the kbd PS/2 port is crushed).

After a lot of pain I got it running fine in X (gnome). I went home
leaving it
at login screen.
Came back this morning and I couldn't click or type anything but I could
telnet
to it. After rebooting, X-Windows no longer worked and I couldn't make the
mouse work. (linux sees it) I have seen Win98 loose the mouse too. In
Win98
I could reset the mouse by unplugging it and re-plugging it. This didn't
work
for linux.

I guess I have a lot of questions here.

1) why does usb access seem to time out?
A1. Modules could be removed. I don't know about any USB device timeouts.

2) how do I make linux see a usb keyboard without the PS/2 plug?
A2. I don't understand your USB cabling setup. Sounds weird to me.
That could be why it's not working for long periods of time (why it seems
to be unreliable).

3) do I need to do some sort of mknod for the keyboard like I did with
the
mouse?
A3. No.

4) why doesn't X see the mouse anymore? (do I need to repeat the
mknod? )
A4. Don't know. You don't need to repeat the mknod (at least I don't have
to).
