USB Wireless keyboard and mouse acts choppy in kernel 2.6

Post by nkh » Fri, 26 Nov 2004 05:38:52


I recently upgraded my Debian Sarge to a kernel 2.6.7. In X, I
experienced that the mouse cursor acted very choppy and the keyboard
seems kinda slow both in X and terminal. I've heard that the way the
kernel handles USB devices is somewhat different in kernel 2.6 than in
2.4 (which works perfectly).

Have anyone seen this bug before, and is there a solution? It's not a
Debian thing, the samethin happens in Mandrake 10, Fedora core 2 and
Ubuntu 4.10

It's a Creative Desktop Wireless 6000 (USB keyboard + Mouse) attached to
a MSI motherboard with a nForce2 Chipset.

Tried a newer kernel (2.6.8.1 or 2.6.9)? That may help, or you may have a
USB issue on your board... Some of the earlier nForce2 chipsets can be
rather troublesome with the OHCI/UHCI/EHCI modules.

Cheers

The Ubuntu kernel is 2.6.8.1, but I haven't tried 2.6.9 yet. If it is
the chipset, is there a chance that it'll be fixed in newer kernels?
Would it help if I purchased a PCI USB controller? Maybe I'll try that
at some point when I get desperate enough :-)

Thanks
