Server shuffle again

My server shuffling is finished, and went off (almost) without a hitch. Slight hiccup installing my new Zonet USB 2.0 PCI card. When I first popped it in, it worked fine. But for some reason, after I finished all the hardware shuffling and booted back up, the Linux kernel no longer recognized the USB 2.0 EHCI host controller on the card.  I ran ‘lspci’ and the card was there, but it showed only the UHCI (USB 1.1) controller.  And of course, I had just cut the UPC off the box and mailed in the rebate submission, thus rendering the card un-returnable.  Funny how those things work.

Anyhow, before I tried anything drastic, I upgraded my Linux kernel from 2.6.20.1 to 2.6.23.14 (the latest revision as of this writing), and damned if that didn’t fix it. Not sure if this was a one-time glitch, or if the newer kernel actually fixed something related to this. But in any case, I’ll keep an eye on it. I can’t complain too much.. the thing only set me back 8 bucks.
