Re: USB 2/3 device descriptor read64, error -110
If you do a google search for this you will see threads on loads of forums going back years, 2004, & not limited to debian derivatives.
I guess it is something to do with how the kernel interacts with / sets up the USB system.
The distro without the problem probable handled setting up USB in a different way to Ubuntu 10.10.
Have you tried booting with ps2 keyboard ? If so does usb keyboard work after bootup ?
Have you tried going back to Lucid kernel, or even installing Lucid.
I tend to say clear of new versions for a while to let the bugs get ironed out.
