Does Ubuntu support USB 3.0?

1

NTFS-3G is quite slow (yay, undocumented file systems), although it shouldn't be that slow. The USB 3.0 port itself is detected, not sure if the hard drive is detected as supporting USB 3.0, however.

I'm not quite sure what the issue is (is it related to NTFS-3G or the hard drive... or perhaps USB port not having high enough voltage for the hard drive to work on higher speeds), but I would consider using Universal Disk Format instead of NTFS. It supports files bigger than 4GB (which is I believe why you don't want to use FAT32). While the format itself is intended to be used on CD disks, it works on USB drives as well. UDF itself is supported since Windows 95 (although you will want to use UDF 2, which is supported since Windows XP), although it doesn't support writing before Windows Vista. If you need to write files (and malware, I guess) from Windows XP, then don't use UDF.

However, the usage is rather tricky, as Mac OS X only supports UDF when the disk doesn't...

There is barely a market for PCI USB 3.0 cards, probably that’s why prices are high. PCI as commonly distributed in the 32-bit at 33 MHz version only supports transmission of 133MB/s, which means pretty much 1000Mbit/s. Subtracting some overhead for the protocol, this already gets pretty close to the maximum speed of 430Mbit/s of USB 2.0. USB 3.0 would allow up to 5Gbit/s, far beyond PCI’s capabilities. Don’t expect any major improvement in transmission speed comparable to PCIe cards! Even a single USB 3.0 port will be able to occupy the link, which is of course shared among all USB ports on the card.

A quick survey on PCI USB 3.0 cards reveals most of them is running the VIA VL80x chipsets, which is told to be supported by Linux since quite some years. As this is a PCIe chipset, there might be some issues because of PCI-PCIe bridge chips, but those are likely also supported well.

Most of the new computers come with USB 3.0 ports these days. But how can you know if your computer has USB 3.0 port or not? In this quick tip, we shall see how to find if your system has USB 3 or USB 2 in Linux.

Check if you have USB 3.0 in Linux terminal

Open a terminal and use the following command:

lsusb

This command displays information about USB buses in your system. Check the result, if you have something like “3.0 root hub”, it means your system has USB 3.0. For example, for my new notebook, it shows:

The quick tip will work on all Linux systems such as Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Fedora etc. Now when you know that you have USB 3.0 port, how can you identify which port is USB 3.0 and which is USB 2.

Identify which port is USB 3.0

Usually USB 3.0 ports are tagged as SS (abbreviation for Super Speed). If your system manufacturer has not tagged it as SS or USB 3, you can check the interior of the port which should normally be of blue...

I don't really know how long it's been going on. About a week or so ago the error message finally piqued by curiosity with, "I wonder what that means?" Before that, it didn't register, so I don't know when it first appeared.

After I finally noticed it, that's when I started trying to figure out what it meant. Here the output of sudo dmesg | grep -i usb:

jim@jim-pc:~$ sudo dmesg | grep -i usb

Introduction
If your computer can boot from USB, then you can save yourself a CD by using UNetbootin to "burn" the disk image (the Ubuntu .iso file) to USB. This method has the advantage of not wasting a blank CD and of getting a snappier performance during the live session, since USB can usually be read faster than optical drives.

As of Ubuntu 12.04, the .iso file sizes are now over 700 MB, which means you cannot even burn it to CD any more. You would have to waste a whole 4 GB blank DVD instead—all the more reason to "burn" to USB instead.

Things to know first

Your USB drive should be formatted as FAT32 or FAT16. It cannot be formatted as NTFS, HFS+, or Ext4. Most USB drives come formatted as FAT32 or FAT16 already, so this shouldn't be a big worry. Some USB sticks come with firmware that will prevent USB booting of Ubuntu from working. It's called...

UNetbootin allows you to create bootable Live USB drives for Ubuntu and other Linux distributions without burning a CD.

Select an ISO file or a distribution to download, select a target drive (USB Drive or Hard Disk), then reboot once done. If your USB drive doesn't show up, reformat it as FAT32.

If you used the "USB Drive" install mode: After rebooting, boot from the USB drive. On PCs, this usually involves pressing a button such as Esc or F12 immediately after you turn on your computer, while on Macs, you should hold the Option key before OSX boots.

If you used the "Hard Disk" install mode: After rebooting, select the UNetbootin entry from the Windows Boot Menu.

UNetbootin has built-in support for automatically downloading and loading the following distributions, though installing other distributions is also supported:

Download and run UNetbootin, then select the "disk image" option and supply it with an ISO (CD image).

I’m posting here a running (base) version of ubuntu 12.10 armhf (V1), kernel 3.0.42+.

Quick, Working and not so Dirty EDITION.

Easy to install on the NAND and ready to be tuned.
I added an easy configurator in it (explain at the end of the post).

Xorg stuff integrated.

The kernel is the one i use (wemac tuned, sata ok but compiled with all the modules for GFX stuff).

UPDATE
After boot failure report from v1.3 mele owner, please try this one (for all mele version):
ubuntu_12.10_armhf_v1_mele_t0.img.gz
It’s a patched 3.0.42+ around a clock problem and seems to solve the issue !
This pre-release also includes latest DRI2...
