SubjectRE: Via usb problems...
Date

More updates:

I tried this hardware setup (see lspci output below) against kernel
2.4.8 and xfree86 4.1 and now everything behaves like it does in Win2k;
meaning the usb mouse "skips" and stops working for a fraction of a
second about once every 60 seconds. With earlier kernel/xfree setups
once the mouse skipped for the first time, it would never come back
until I rebooted (since I don't dare mess with /dev stuff too much)

Here is my lspci -v output:

Can you provide me

1. The lspci -v info for your box (chip revision etc)
2. Details ont he updated windows drivers (eg URL for)
3. The USB devices

> Does VIA have any engineers working on linux drivers?

Directly, I don't believe so. However they do provide contact points for
some of us and have provided workarounds for other bugs. We now have a
mechanism in place for making such requests.

Firstly however I'd like the USB folks to look at the debug and traces
to be
sure this isnt a VIA chip bug. If it is I'll take it up with VIA
