Hi Greg,

Thanks for your reply,

I got a Belkin USB Hub, it does support high-speed mode, but it's powered by USB port.
Data Transfer Rate: 480 Mbps
Data Link Protocol: Hi-Speed USB

So I guess that won't work with the HOST port.
Next, I plugged in a USB Mouse (Belkin Optical Mouse, 5V, 100mA) and expect the red light lights up, but it failed.

I also tried an old (Pentium 4 age) DELL USB keyboard, a Kingston Data Traveler 100 USB 2.0 Flash drive
but none of them were detected by the 'lsusb' command

This is really killing me since I don't have any tool to test it, so if anyone who has been through this issue
or any idea will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

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?

Guys,

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
http://gumstix.8.n6.nabble.com/How-can-I-get-quot-developer-image-quot-kernel-source-code-td4965579.html#a4965636)

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
root@overo:~#

No device detected... I tried to reboot, or plug in a USB Mouse, or Flash
Drive
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
port*?

Googled that, and I found the following threads :
http://gumstix.8.n6.nabble.com/Overo-Chestnut-USB-ports-td4370132.html
http://gumstix.8.n6.nabble.com/USB-Host-problems-td662510.html
http://neostix.com/hardware-design/product-changes-known-issues-a-eol/67-known-issues.html

*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.

James
