I have following configuration:

- mips-Au1000-processor (PB1000-board from Alchemy-Semiconductor)
-  _no_  USB-devices connected
- linux from the Montavista-Tree (downloaded in December from "2.4.2_hhl20") 
- prebuilt crosscompiler from Montavista (downloaded in December from

During booting the kernel initalizes the usb-device-driver and 
a little later prints "USB device not accepting new address...":

I wonder what I could have done wrong. The switches on the board
are set accordingly the Montavista-faq.txt. I could verify these
with the schematics of the board.
After booting, when I plug in an USB-device, the same error messages
are repeated.

As far as I know USB should work with this kernel. So maybe this
is a hardware failure ? I reduced the CPU-frequency from 396MHz to
but this didn't help, too. The same messages appear, when I plug the
in the other USB-connector on the board. It's no problem with the power,
because I could verify that there are 5Volt on the USB-connector.

Probably someone already knows the solution, because this is not a

Thanks in advance
