Acer travelmate 5542 kernel problem



  • I just took over as the network admin as the previous guy left. He was the one that was doing all the kernel changes. Anyway, I’m not sure what the actual kernel is, its just named bzImagecustom. Im not sure if its actually a custom image he created or a kernel that he just named custom. While using this kernel I get the message: “usb 2-1: device not accepting address 2, error -110. and it does this for address 3 and 4. Then it goes on down and says hard disk not found! followed by usb 2-1: device not accepting address 5, error -110; hub 2-0:1.0: unable to enumerate usb device on port 1”.

    Any advice? I tried to download the latest driver which is 3.14.2 and I get a lot of other messages followed by the above.

    Im using fog .32 currently



  • Yeah I have had experience even with the same manufacturer of hard disks being just a little bit off as well and had to send them back.



  • According to what’s listed in fog for the hardware for each computer: uploaded image computer hard disk model is STS160318BAS and test computer is ST3160815AS. They do however have different firmware though. I did test another computer and it had the same model number hard disk as the upload computer but it too had a different firmware. Bios version is also different there too.
    These are referb computers that were all bought together. We have bought close to 150 referbs from them within last 6 months although those were a different model and had no issues imaging those.

    you can not deploy an image to a hard drive of a smaller size then the one you created it on (unless using a re-sizable image)
    most people create their images on drives significantly smaller then what they plan on deploying to, to account for variances in reported drive size


  • Developer

    Are they the same manufacturer? Surprisingly, different manufacturer’s will have different sized drives and still call them the same.

    Example:
    Toshiba: 80GB --> 78.2GB usable
    WD: 80GB --> 79.4 usable

    Just throwing out some info hopefully this may help.



  • These are all supposed to have the same size hard drive in them.



  • Ok just tried a test deployment and before I registered and deployed, I did a system info compatibility check and network and disk passed. Deployed and hard disk said couldn’t have a partition outside of hard disk. Then went back and did another check and the disk failed. What’s going on here?


  • Developer

    that “error” is just the kernel failing to load a driver for a piece of hardware your computer almost certainly doesn’t have.
    I have seen that “error” on every computer i have used fog with.

    Ok, I was using the 64 bit. Tried the 32 bit and I am able to upload, deploying now and will see if it will allow me to deploy in a few minutes. One thing I’m curious about is I am getting this message at the start:
    “esas2r: driver will not be loaded because no ATTO esas2r devices were found
    i2c-parport-light: adapter type unspecified”

    What exactly does this mean, am I going to have any issues with this image like this?

    That’s a driver being loaded that your system probably doesn’t have a device for. It’s safe to ignore that message.

    Try following the FAQ, last line in my signature.

    Make sure you’re not trying 3.14.2 64 bit with FOG 0.32.
