USB Hub Support
« on: January 11, 2010, 19:39:44 PM »
I already read that USB Hub is not currently supported (your words). Since I'm in a very tight situation with an antique server (I'll avoid the translation but it's kind of evident) I would like to know if the support is planned/doable, if there has been any work on it yet or, if not, if you need some coder/tester for it. I'm a programmer myself and I'd be glad to help you out if you're lacking time for hub support.

My current situation is a bootable floppy/cdrom, no USB support (from bios) and a single USB port, no hard disk and need of multiple USB ports, hence the hub. Cause it's not really a good idea to unmount on the fly a distro and remount it on the hub ;)

Well, if you need anything I'm here, looking for an early reply. Eventually if you know of any boot loaders which support usb hubs I'd be glad to hear.

Thanks in advance.

hi,
no, hub support is currently not planed, but if you boot linux then you can try kexec-loader.
