kernel oops (general protection fault) after attaching USB device

Bug #365353 reported by Rocko on 2009-04-23
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
linux (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

The attached general protection fault happened in the Jaunty RC when I attached a USB cable linking to a 7 port hub with three drives attached. This doesn't normally happen.

I've included what both the syslog and message logs reported about the oops. The oops was fatal for hal - I had to reboot the machine completely in order to see the external drives.

Hi Rocko,

This bug was reported a while ago and there hasn't been any activity in it recently. We were wondering if this is still an issue? Can you try with the latest development release of Ubuntu? ISO CD images are available from .

If it remains an issue, could you run the following command from a Terminal (Applications->Accessories->Terminal). It will automatically gather and attach updated debug information to this report.

apport-collect -p linux 365353

Also, if you could test the latest upstream kernel available that would be great. It will allow additional upstream developers to examine the issue. Refer to . Once you've tested the upstream kernel, please remove the 'needs-upstream-testing' tag. This can be done by clicking on the yellow pencil icon next to the tag located at the bottom of the bug description and deleting the 'needs-upstream-testing' text. Please let us know your results.

Thanks in advance.
