Usb error on tx: SHORT_XFER with 1.2.3-RC3 and -RELEASE



  • This wasn't happening in 1.2.3-RC2, however, between that point and now I added a usb2.0 card and replaced an aue which had a bad ethernet clip (electronics fine) with an axe.

    The fun part: that axe, the WAN, on the usb2 PCI card, is fine. the rue, on the original usb 1.1 internal port, started throwing errors. So I replaced it with an axe on the usb2 card to see if it'd make a difference. Nope. the second axe (but not the first) then threw SHORT_XFER errors.

    No clue what's up here.



  • You know what date on RC2? It's possible if you got one that was still FreeBSD 7.1 release and moving to 7.2 broken it.



  • @cmb:

    Alas, no. If I still had the tgz I'd just use it :)



  • Ok, so it looks like this also happens with 7.1: when there's an axe on the system, the rue throws SHORT_XFER errors regardless of whether it's attached to a usb 1.1 or 2.0 controller.

    Likewise, a second axe throws the error. The first axe does not. An aue with an axe does not.



  • If this isn't a critical system, you might want to try 2.0 to see if it's still an issue on FreeBSD 8.0. If it is, it should be reported to freebsd-net list.
