Default Packardell with usb problems

Hi


First of all, I own a notebook PackardBell PackMate 1400 with Debian
unstable, teste with with kernel 2.6.18 , 2.6.25 y 2.6.28.

The problem is very simple yet I have found no solution whatsoever

When booting any of the above mentioned kernels with no parameters
everything works just fine but the USB devices, which simply I can't
get to work, for example. usb mouse hardly hardly moving and pendrives
don't get recognized. At this point no messages appear on dmesg showing
new plugged usb devices.

Some of the possibly reasons ( greom dmesg)

[ 0.203882] ACPI: PCI Interrupt Link [ALKA] (IRQs 20) *0, disabled.
[ 0.204063] ACPI: PCI Interrupt Link [ALKB] (IRQs 23) *11
[ 0.204306] ACPI: PCI Interrupt Link [ALKC] (IRQs 22) *5, disabled.
[ 0.204408] ACPI Warning (nspredef-0852): \_SB_.PCI0.ALKD._CRS:

[ 0.204420] ACPI Error (uteval-0289): Return object type is incorrect

[ 0.204444] ACPI Exception (pci_link-0291): AE_TYPE, Evaluating _CRS
[20080926]

and USB ...

[ 2.081608] ACPI Error (uteval-0289): Return object type is incorrect

[ 2.097049] ACPI: Invalid IRQ link routing entry

bus number 1
[ 2.111312] uhci_hcd 0000:00:10.0: irq 11, io base 0x00001200

I've tried acpi=off, pci=noacpi and acpi=off, but with no success

With some of this combos I can get the USB devices to work BUT in this
case the kernel can't assign an IRQ to the wireless card

I've googled but found nothing about this, except some information about
buggy BIOSes

Anyone with any useful link or resource about this very annoying
problem?

TIA

Here's is the dmesg output

Yes, try passing the option "irqfixup" to the kernel.
It seems to be a problem of some buggy BIOSes not handling IRQs correctly.

Have you tried suspending the BIOS plug and play.

did my best on the BIOS config but it's the first time I see a BIOS
config with just a few options,needless to say there's no option for
that. On the other hand, I'll try with pnpbios=off

thx
