    From devices.txt;


    180 char USB devices
    0 = /dev/usb/lp0 First USB printer
    ...
    15 = /dev/usb/lp15 16th USB printer
    16 = /dev/usb/mouse0 First USB mouse
    ...
    31 = /dev/usb/mouse15 16th USB mouse
    32 = /dev/usb/ez0 First USB firmware loader
    ...


    If you want you can turn off this error message, edit /etc/modules.conf
    and add a like like; alias char-major-180 off

    If you want you can turn off this error message, edit /etc/modules.conf
    and add a like 'alias char-major-180 off' without the quotes for example.

    Thanx Lenard. Is the kernel acknowledging available USB ports that arn't in
    use? And can you shed any light on this?

    Probably it has either been told to look for certain USB devices
    (printer/mouse/firmware loader/scanner/Rio), or somehow gotten the idea
    that it should look for one of these.

    (1) It is a informational warning only. (2) The cited URL will tell you
    what you need to know, but roughly the binary module that you loaded might
    not have free source code (hence the kernel developers may not care to look
    into any bugs your kernel proceeds to spit out). (3) Nowadays the
    ppp_deflate is "Dual BSD/GPL" and so does not taint the kernel.
