Default startx hang forever when USB is plugged in


I have Asus A7N266-VM/LAN/AA motherboard with nVIDIA GeForce2 integrated GPU; AMD Athlon XP 1600+ cpu and XFree86 4.2.0 on redhat Linux kernel 2.4.18-3.

The NVchooser.sh tells me to install
NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-2960.rh73up.athlon.rpm and NVIDIA_GLX_1.0-2960.i386.rpm
I did.

The X server works fine. However, every time the USB is plugged in, such as zip drive or camera, startx will always hang forever.

Could some experts point out where went wrong and how to find log. Thanks,

following is XF86Config-4:

i worked it out by disabling "usb keyboard support" in BIOS (ga-7vax).

Default edutu: Thanks a lot

It just works as disable USB legacy device support in BIOS! It solves the problem which lasts for a long time on my system.

Thanks again. The thread is concluded.
