I can’t seem to find the info I’m looking for in google, hopefully someone has dealt with these sorts of issues in the past.

I have a machine where my messages file keeps getting lines like:
Mar 13 18:34:43 nemesis kernel: usb 2-6: reset high speed USB device number 2 using ehci_hcd Mar 13 18:34:57 nemesis kernel: usb 2-6: reset high speed USB device number 2 using ehci_hcd Mar 13 18:35:07 nemesis kernel: usb 2-6: reset high speed USB device number 2 using ehci_hcd Mar 13 18:35:09 nemesis kernel: usb 2-6: reset high speed USB device number 2 using ehci_hcd Mar 13 18:36:35 nemesis kernel: usb 2-6: reset high speed USB device number 2 using ehci_hcd

I assumed the issue was my usb3 drive, disconnected… errors persist. I run lsusb and get
[root@nemesis ~]# lsusb Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub Bus 006 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub Bus 007 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub Bus 002 Device 002: ID 0bda:0151 Realtek Semiconductor Corp.

and looking in /proc/bus/usb, I don’t find anything that looks like a direct mapping. does anyone have some pointers for translating these device numbers/paths to the physical hardware?

thanks.

One thought on - Usb Device Path/name Translating

  • It looks like Linux is unable to assign an ID to this device. Without that, it won’t be able to get any more information about the hardware. IDs are assigned by the host, so there’s no generic means of translation.
