Hello Hans, Thank you for your assistance.
Various Linux distros I've tried works on this machine via USB, of course I assume by "broken" you just refer to the fact that BSD lacks the shotgunned USB compatibility of more popular operating systems. Umass does not print any error messages. The only errors I get are regarding the following: usb_alloc_device: set addr 2 failed (USB_ERR_TIMEOUT) usbd_setup_device_desc: getting device descriptor failed (USB_ERR_TIMEOUT). ugen0.2 <unknown> @ usbus 0 (Disconnect) Then root waits/fails on USB1. Oh, another, single, error popped up: *run_interrupt_driven_hooks still waiting 60 seconds for xpt-config*.
