I onw a 1TB HGST laptop drive. This has been installed into a Patroit[tm] brand "Gauntlet II" external USB 3.0 enclosure. This drive has had all built-in diagnostics run on it, and it is perfectly A-OK. It works compltely fine with no problems on multiple Linux systems I have here. The motherboard on my main FreeBSD system is an ASRock N68C-GC FX, and to that I have added one of these add-on USB 3.0 cards: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=17Z-0002-00002 Unfortunately, the drive is not working at all with this system or this card. When the device is plugged into one of the USB 3.0 ports I get these messages in /var/log/messages: May 23 22:45:04 segfault kernel: xhci_do_command: Command timeout! May 23 22:45:04 segfault kernel: usb_alloc_device: device init 3 failed (USB_ERR_TIMEOUT, ignored) May 23 22:45:04 segfault kernel: ugen2.3: <Unknown> at usbus2 (disconnected) May 23 22:45:04 segfault kernel: uhub_reattach_port: could not allocate new device No other messages appear in the log, and quite obviously, the drive is utterly inaccessible to FreeBSD. This is extraoordinarily annoying, as I spend good money to buy this add-in USB 3.0 card in the hopes that it would solve the problems that I previously had with FreeBSD and a different USB 3.0 card, and now it is all useless. Does FreeBSD support the "VIA VL800 Chipset" that this add-on card is alleged to contain? Does FreeBSD *ever* work with *any* USB 3.0 equipment? Or is this just a far off dream? P.S. I know that FreeBSD doesn't have nearly as many people working on it as Linux does, but I didn't really expect it to be quite this far behind in terms of driver support for USB 3.0. I mean how long has USB 3.0 been out now? Five+ years??
Hi, What version of FreeBSD are you running. Have you tried -stable? Yes, USB 3.0 _works_ with FreeBSD. --HPS _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-usb To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-usb-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
