Check that the pc bios has USB disabled.
Also check that rc.conf does not have statement to enable USB.

Subject: Is there a method to not probe certain devices at startup?


Hi,

I have a FreeBSD 4.11 box (monowall, actually) that has apparently
had a
bit of a crisis with its USB controller hardware.  This is
completely
irrelevant to me as it is a purpose-built box with no need to use
USB
now or in the future.  The only problem is that when the box boots,
it
hangs for about 5 to 10 minutes trying to talk to the USB device.

Here is an excerpt from dmesg (pardon the wrapping):

uhci0: <VIA 83C572 USB controller> port 0xd400-0xd41f irq 11 at
device
16.0 on pci0
usb0: <VIA 83C572 USB controller> on uhci0
usb0: USB revision 1.0
uhub0: VIA UHCI root hub, class 9/0, rev 1.00/1.00, addr 1
uhub0: 2 ports with 2 removable, self powered
uhci1: <VIA 83C572 USB controller> port 0xd800-0xd81f irq 11 at
device
16.1 on pci0
usb1: <VIA 83C572 USB controller> on uhci1
usb1: USB revision 1.0
uhub1: VIA UHCI root hub, class 9/0, rev 1.00/1.00, addr 1
uhub1: 2 ports with 2 removable, self powered
uhci2: <VIA 83C572 USB controller> port 0xdc00-0xdc1f irq 9 at
device
16.2 on pci0
usb2: <VIA 83C572 USB controller> on uhci2
usb2: USB revision 1.0
uhub2: VIA UHCI root hub, class 9/0, rev 1.00/1.00, addr 1
uhub2: 2 ports with 2 removable, self powered
uhub2: device problem, disabling port 2

Immediately before the last line of output above is where it hangs.

I found some oblique references to device.hints on google but I
couldn't
find anything that describes exactly what needs to go in that file.

Thanks,
