Hi everyone, I am having this strange problem where my Razer Imperator is recognized by X when I plug it into certain USB ports, and not with others.

When it works, the xorg log is as follows:

It seems the mouse works only if the keyboard part of the device responsible for macro keys is loaded before the mouse. Does anyone know how to make sure that always happens?

It seems that the problem is not with X, but somewhere in the kernel. When the mouse is plugged into certain USB ports, dmesg outputs
Code:
usb 2-1.4: reset full speed USB device number 30 using ehci_hcd
repeatedly. Any help is much appreciated!
