How can I copy/install usb driver from system rescue cd?

Question

Hi,

 

Recently I installed Funtoo Linux with the debian-sources kernel according to the installation instructions (http://www.funtoo.org/Funtoo_Linux_Installation).

I had to boot the alternative kernel (alter64) of system rescue cd, because the standard kernel could not work with usb ports.

I have a Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3P motherboard.
Unfortunately in the installed system is the same situation, the usb ports don't work.
 
Is there a way to port/install the usb driver from the system rescue cd?
 
I'll be grateful for any help.
 
Zoltan

Google says that the USB controller on your MB is a VIA VL805 chip.  The advice to get that chip working appears to be to add the kernel parameter "iommu=soft".

It would seem your issue is kernel related, you may want to try a different kernel.

Although, the Debian kernel is built to be "one size fits all", but then again, so is the systemrescuecd standard kernel and yet, you had to use the alternate.

The usb drivers are part of the kernel, either built-in or modules.
