[ubuntu] Disabling USB hardware

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi, looking for a workaround here. I have a hand-me-down laptop that has a somewhat fried system board. An HP pavilion dv6000 w/ amd64, the manifestation of the hardware problem is the usb ports are unrecognized (in windoze or ubuntu). In ubuntu, the syslog shows a constant stream of messages like this: Code: {date} ubuntu kernel: [ time stamp ] hub 2-0:1.0: unable to enumerate USB device on port 2 on and on and on a couple of times a second. The issue I run into is the inability to enumerate the USB prevents the laptop from suspending or hibernating. I am looking for a way to blacklist (or the like) this USB device so the kernel doesn't worry about it. I tried the suggestion here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...62&postcount=3 but it did not accomplish my goal. Thanks for your help! (Hardware)
