I plan to use my raspy to control a Gembird SilverShield USB attached power strip. It allows to turn on/off 4 seperate power outlets via USB control. The Linux application sispmctl works well so far on my HP PC w/ SuSE 11.4. Also it works on RPi. But when the RPi reboots, it frequently hangs when coming up again. The error messages on the console are hardly readable as they get spilled out way to fast to read. Only way to get it running again is power off/ power on. Cold boots seem to work reliable though.
I have ried to attached the Gembird via a powered USB hub too, to exclude power comsumption issues, but symptoms stay the same.
Q: Is this known? I have seen another post where the Gembird power strip was proposed.
Q: I can't find a logfile with the error messages after cold start, nothing in messages or dmesg.*. Any idea?
