I thought this was a dock issue, then I thought it was a power issue. I think it may be a kernel issue.
when I undock I lose all usb functionality until reboot. I use my dock often because I have limited mobility and need my ergonomic setup, but sometimes I want to use my laptop elsewhere. you see how this could be troublesome; I have to reboot after undocking if I want to resume working ergonomically.
Here’s my dmesg. bootup lands before
[ 920.257062] usb 2-1: USB disconnect, device number 2, at which point I undock and redock. You can see errors before and after that point. can anybody please help? I’ve spent so much time on my nixos config; I don’t have the time and energy to switch to ubuntu or something right now. please help! any direction would be greatly appreciated!
Linux nixos 5.4.51 #1-NixOS SMP Thu Jul 9 07:37:57 UTC 2020 x86_64 GNU/Linux
what else can I send? what trees should I be barking up? I posted
udevadm monitor in another post about this. relatedly, sorry about the repeated posts; the goalposts seem to be constantly shifting!
thank you once again for whatever help you may offer.
