Howto configure the Linux kernel / drivers / usb / class


USB Class driver configuration

"USB Device Class drivers"

    • depends on USB


  • Option: OBSOLETE_OSS_USB_DRIVER
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off) Obsolete OSS USB drivers
    • depends on USB && SOUND
      This option enables support for the obsolete USB Audio and Midi drivers that are scheduled for removal in the near future since there are ALSA drivers for the same hardware.
      Please contact Adrian Bunk <bunk@stusta.de> if you had to say Y here because of missing support in the ALSA drivers.
      If unsure, say N.


  • Option: USB_AUDIO
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) USB Audio support
    • depends on USB && SOUND && OBSOLETE_OSS_USB_DRIVER
      Say Y here if you want to connect USB audio equipment such as speakers to your computer's USB port. You only need this if you use the OSS sound driver; ALSA has its own option for usb audio support.
      To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called audio.


  • Option: USB_MIDI
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) USB MIDI support
    • depends on USB && SOUND && OBSOLETE_OSS_USB_DRIVER
      Say Y here if you want to connect a USB MIDI device to your computer's USB port. You only need this if you use the OSS sound system; USB MIDI devices are supported by ALSA's USB audio driver. This driver is for devices that comply with 'Universal Serial Bus Device Class Definition for MIDI Device'.
      The following devices are known to work: * Steinberg USB2MIDI * Roland MPU64 * Roland PC-300 * Roland SC8850 * Roland UM-1 * Roland UM-2 * Roland UA-100 * Yamaha MU1000
      To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called usb-midi.


  • Option: USB_ACM
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) USB Modem (CDC ACM) support
    • depends on USB
      This driver supports USB modems and ISDN adapters which support the Communication Device Class Abstract Control Model interface. Please read <file:Documentation/usb/acm.txt> for details.
      If your modem only reports "Cls=ff(vend.)" in the descriptors in /proc/bus/usb/devices, then your modem will not work with this driver.
      To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called cdc-acm.


  • Option: USB_PRINTER
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) USB Printer support
    • depends on USB
      Say Y here if you want to connect a USB printer to your computer's USB port.
      To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called usblp.
