Just unpacked my minty-fresh Beaglebone. Things seemed to be going well (usb console, usb g_disk_storage and g_ether, ethernet), but it won't recognize USB devices on the A/Host port -- an Adafruit 802.11n network adaptor, a thumb drive and a couple of HID devices. All plugged in directly, all while on a 2A DC adaptor. Basically there's no activity (no dmesg, nothing on lsusb -v).
Won't have a powered hub handy until I raid my office come Monday, that seems like the obvious next thing to try.
This is after following the instructions from http://learn.adafruit.com/beaglebone/wifi, on kernel 3.2.25-r15a+gitr720e...... brought in by the opkg upgrade.
So, a bit stumped. Any obvious place to start on debugging?
