I've googled around a fair amount, but I only find people ASKING this question - so far no answers.
The system in question is Ubuntu 12.04 - this is the output of uname -a
Linux stampy2 3.2.0-26-generic-pae #41-Ubuntu SMP Thu Jun 14 16:45:14 UTC 2012 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
One of the USB ports on my motherboard appears to have gone bad a few months ago. It doesn't work, and syslog is flooded with:
kernel: [483594.300230] hub 2-1:1.0: unable to enumerate USB device on port 6
This motherboard has approximately 70 hojillion usb ports, so I REALLY don't care if that one doesn't work. But I also don't want to disable USB entirely. Is there any way to tell the kernel this so it stops trying multiple times a second?
Failing that, just suppressing the log message would be nice - it's making my syslog completely useless to me.
