What happens when you connect a powered USB hub that supports high-speed mode into the host port, then plug your QuickCam into the hub?

If that doesn't work, what about plugging other USB devices into the hub, e.g. keyboard and mouse?

I had a bad feeling about the USB HOST port on my Chestnut43 board, let me
explain why:

First, I tried to re-compile the kernel with UVC video camera driver
followed by Derek's instruction in
other post. (see

Second, I compiled modules:
make ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=arm-linux-gnueabi- modules -j4

And then install those modules:
sudo INSTALL_MOD_PATH=/media/rootfs make ARCH=arm
CROSS_COMPILE=arm-linux-gnueabi- modules_install

On Gumstix, I typed:
root@overo:~# depmod
(nothing seem to happen)

Next, I connect the Logitech QuickCam Express (which was supported by
qc-driver project)
and I type:
root@overo:~# lsusb
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

No device detected... I tried to reboot, or plug in a USB Mouse, or Flash
but I still got nothing by typing 'lsusb'
(Besides, the Flash drive has a light which will be on once plugged into PC
USB port, but it never on the HOST port)

So, I start thinking *maybe the Chestnut43 board has a faulty USB HOST

Googled that, and I found the following threads :

*Is there anyway I can justify whether I have a faulty USB port or not?*

USB Webcam project is very important since its my school project, but looks
like I have to solve the
USB port issue first.

Any idea about this situation? Thanks in advance.
