Xubuntu 8.10 AMD64 doesn`t load (From HDD or LiveCD) when Speedtouch 330 USB connected

Bug #292105 reported by Jedrzej Paszak on 2008-11-01
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

When the splashscreen shows, the progress bar reaches +/- 10% and completly crashes the system. When you try to boot the system with your Speedtouch 330 USB unplugged it works fine. It happened when booting from a Live CD and after installing the sytem to a hard drive (with an unplugged modem).

ADDED 5.10.2008: After a few minutes of waiting the splashscreen vanishes and the text-mode shows. The System loads HAL and stops at Bluetooth. It`s impossible to avoid it. I think the system treats the speedtouch modem as bluetooth.

Charlie Kravetz - I found a solution to the problem on a polish Ubuntu forum. He solved this way:

1. wget http://launchpadlibrarian.net/19200501/speedtch.ko.tar.bz2
2.tar -xzf speedtch.ko.tar.bz2
3.sudo cp speedtch.ko /lib/modules/2.6.27-7-generic/kernel/drivers/usb/atm

Looks like the speedtch.ko is corrupt.
